Infielder/outfielder Starlin Rodriguez added to roster
After suffering a tear in his quad during the last road trip, 2B/OF Eric Patterson is officially inactive, and will miss 10 to 14 days with the injury. To take his place on the roster, the Revolution has added another new face, Starlin Rodriguez. Like Patterson, Rodriguez has also been an infielder and corner outfielder during his career.
Rodriguez, in his sixth professional season, ended last year and begin this season at Double-A Springfield (MO) in the St. Louis Cardinals organization. The 25-year-old native of the Dominican Republic enjoyed his best professional season in 2012 at A-Advanced Palm Beach, where the switch-hitter batted .300 with eight home runs and 48 RBI in 114 games, all career-highs. Rodriguez was signed by St. Louis as an international free agent and turned pro in 2010.
