Indians send INF Rodriguez back to Pirates
The Pirates assigned Rodriguez to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old Rodriguez was taken by Pittsburgh from Cleveland with the No. 1 pick last December in the draft of players left off 40-man rosters. He went 1 for 12 in seven games for Pittsburgh.
The Pirates then returned him to Cleveland, which assigned him to Triple-A Columbus. In 18 games there, he hit .193 with two home runs and five RBIs.
