Rodriguez went 2-for-6 with a game-tying RBI double in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning victory over the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez came through with a two-out two-bagger in the ninth to plate Pedro Florimon and knot the score at 5-5. The 31-year-old is enjoying his best month of the season, with six homers, 16 RBI and a .333/.381/.684 line over 57 September at-bats, along with hits in 11 of his last 12 games.

Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a two-run single and a solo homer in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

He was the driving force behind the Pittsburgh offense in this one, as he has been over the last week and a half. Indeed, the ultra-versatile utility man (he's played every position but pitcher and catcher this year) has gone absolutely bonkers at the plate recently, hitting a ridiculous .417 with six homers and 15 RBI over the last 10 games. With his wide positional eligibility, Rodriguez makes for an excellent down-the-stretch add to help fill lineup gaps.

Rodriguez went 4-for-8 with a pair of dingers in the twinbill against Cincinnati on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The impending free agent continues to raise his price tag, belting 17 homers with 50 RBI in 256 at-bats. His defensive versatility will likely make him an attractive free agent candidate.

Rodriguez went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit three-run homer in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez was the hero in this one, turning a one-run deficit into a two-run lead with one swing off Phillies closer Jeanmar Gomez in the top of the ninth. He couldn't have hand-picked a better time for his 13th long ball of the season and first since Aug. 14. Those who kept him in the lineup during what was supposed to be a routine day off will be pleasantly surprised.

Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Monday's loss to the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez was making just his third start of the month, as he has struggled with the bat in September. The utility man has matched his career high with 12 home runs and is just one RBI short of his career-best 41, but playing time could be sparse the rest of the season.

Rodriguez was unavailable Monday due to sore hamstring, Root Sports Pittsburgh reports.

EDGE Analysis

He injured himself during Sunday's tilt. The versatile Rodriguez is sliding under the radar in 2016, but he's already tied his career high in homers (12) and an .840 OPS in 232 plate appearances also represents his best mark in nine seasons.

Rodriguez went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI during Sunday's blowout win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez was a crucial factor in the early lead Pittsburgh built, as he crushed an opposite field three-run homer in the first inning to go up five. He later knocked in another run with a single, giving him his first four-RBI game since April of 2014. Rodriguez has seen sporadic playing time this season, but he has started four of the last six games and could continue seeing an uptick in playing time if he keeps producing for the 19th-ranked Pirates offense.

Rodriguez was the hero of Friday's 3-2 victory over the Reds, smacking a ninth-inning pinch-hit solo homer in his only at-bat.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran connected off reliever Ross Ohlendorf for a 413-foot shot to left that gave the Pirates only their second win in the last seven games. The blast was Rodriguez's second career game-ending homer and his first round-tripper since July 10. The 31-year-old has only 45 at-bats since July 2 and 187 overall on the season, but has managed a solid 11 homers and 33 RBI-- along with 13 doubles and a triple-- over those opportunities.
