Is he anybody worth keeping ? We can keep up to five minor leaguers from year to year as long as the don't come up and stay on the major league roster more than two weeks. Not counting Sept.. Howie Kendricks seems to be the lock at second base but is always hurt. Does Rodriquez have a future with the Angels or does he need a trade? What kind of production do you expect from him?

With the way the Angels jerk their prospects around(see Erick Aybar, Joe Saunders, Brandon Wood), I think you may be better off not keeping this guy. Do not think though that I don't like this guy, I happen to like him quite a bit.

He has 15-20 HR power, and profiles as a utility guy in Anaheim. His swing can get a bit long, as evidenced by his 111 Ks so far this year in only 3/4 of a season as AA. This could be a concern if he is advanced to AAA next year and he faces pitchers with more experience. I would expect a couple of call-ups and send-downs next year when guys need a rest or get hurt, which in the context of your inquiry hurts his value. But as soon as 2009, I think he may have a full time gig in Anaheim, but over the next year, I think it will be an aggravating time for Rodriguez and for you, if you did decide to save him within these parameters.

Hope this helps.
