R.J. Rodriguez to play for Lincoln Saltdogs this season
Revolution career saves leader R.J. Rodriguez has opted to sign with the Lincoln Saltdogs of the American Association rather than return to York. Of course, the AA season ends before the Atlantic League season, and we often see players move from one league to the other for the ALPB stretch run. If Rodriguez does something like that, York would almost certainly be the destination for him, but not until August. Should the Revs find themselves gearing up for another playoff run, Rodriguez could be a valuable addition at that time, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
There are other familiar names on Lincoln’s roster that have made stops in York: Starting pitcher Justin Edwards (’11), infielder David Espinosa (’12) and outfielder Stephen Douglas (’12).
