Sean Rodriguez is PTBNL in Kazmir trade's Ken Rosenthal is reporting that Sean Rodriguez is the player to be named later in the Scott Kazmir trade. Rodriguez should fit into the Rays plans next season as super-utility player, assuming they decline Akinori Iwamura's option making Ben Zobrist the starting second baseman. 

Rodriguez is hitting .301 with 29 home runs and a .402 on-base percentage. He has struck out 116 times to just 50 walks, so he'll need to work on his plate discipline in order to be an effective role player coming off the bench.
