It brought to mind the issues that Francisco Rodriguez had as a Met and subsequently with the Brewers. The memories of Rodriguez’s involvement with this issue while a member of the New York Mets are...

Mets Minors: Building from the bottom up – Aderlin Rodriguez

Aderlin Rodriguez:  Stats is a vacuum are misleading.  At 20 years of age, hitting 24 HRs in 471 ABs between FSA (Full Season A) and A+ doesn’t sound that impressive.  When you consider that 16 of those HRs came when playing for Savannah (who plays in a power sapping ballpark) or that he isn’t as free a swinger as Matthew Den Dekker… he starts sounding a little better. ...

Mets Prospects Disciplined After On-Field Incident

Reports surfaced on Friday morning of an altercation between Mets prospects Zack Wheeler and Aderlin Rodriguez. Wheeler, of course, is the number one or two prospect in New York’s system depending on who you ask. Rodriguez is decidedly less famous, but still a quite talented young player. He led all Mets minor league players last season with 24 home runs and was listed as No. 15...

MMO Mailbag: Shift Aderlin Rodriguez To The Outfield?

Alex In CT asks: With no real power corner outfielders to speak of in the Mets minors, would it make sense to shift Aderlin Rodriguez to left or right field? As it stands now he’s blocked by David Wright and Ike Davis at the corner infield spots. We know he has the bat, but does Rodriguez have the arm to play in the outfield? Sean Kenny replies: Before I start this response, I...

MMO Prospect Pulse: Aderlin Rodriguez, 3B

With all the talk of our supposed top power prospect being left off the 40-man roster approaching the Rule 5 Draft, it makes sense to give the man a little extra coverage. Meet Aderlin Rodriguez, infield prospect for the New York Mets. First off, calm your minds about the Rule V Draft – I was worried myself, but he can be protected for the minor league portion and his skill set...

HYPE files: Aderlin Rodriguez

In the past decade, the Mets minor league system has not been regarded with any kind of respect. Although the minor league system has produced David Wright, Jose Reyes, and several of the starters on this 2012 team, it has also seen many “top prospects” fizzle out or not reach their full potential. This lack of respect comes from prospects like Philip Humber, Fernando Martinez...

Mets Minors: Is Aderlin Rodriguez the next Jesus Montero?

Aderlin Rodriguez can hit. He’s got power and a swing that gets scouts excited but his game has a lot of problems… especially for a National League team. The fact is, that Rodriguez makes Wilmer Flores look like a defensive gem and that is hardly a good thing. Stats We Like: 4 Doubles 3 HRs 11 RBIs .522 SLG Stats We Don’t Like: 9 K’s 7 Errors 11 Games The striking out...
