He also has two saves and has struck out 195 hitters in 120 innings.

Rodriguez has also shined at the plate with three home runs and 33 RBIs. He hit nearly .400 last year and has scored 27 runs. Rodriguez pitched in the 2022 World Cup and made four appearances. His team won all four games Rodriguez pitched in, leading his team to a Gold Medal and International Performance of the Year after his incredible job out of the bullpen.

The Eagles are set to begin their season in the Big-Eight Tournament. They will face Coral Springs Charter, which features former Assistant Coach Max Boling making his head coaching debut with the Panthers.
