Endy Rodriguez keeps collecting awards.
The Pirates catching prospect was named the South Atlantic League MVP for the 2022 season. Rodriguez hit .302/.392/.544 this year for Greensboro. He ranked fourth in league OPS, though he maintained his production over 370 plate appearances, which is the second highest among the top ten hitters in the league.
While he was with Greensboro, Rodriguez played second base, left field, first base, and had his time behind the plate. He caught 27% of runners stealing, but made some big strides in his defense throughout the season. By the end of the year, he caught 45% of runners in Double-A.
This is the second year in a row that Rodriguez has been named a league MVP. He won the Florida State League MVP award last year for his time in Bradenton. Yesterday, we named Rodriguez our 2022 Minor League Player of the Year.+ posts
