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.

Rodriguez went 1-for-2 with three RBI in Friday's 8-6 victory over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran provided some very timely hitting in Friday's victory, plating Matt Joyce and Jody Mercer with a second-inning single, and then bringing Jung Ho Kang home on a sixth-inning sacrfice fly. The 31-year-old now has a modest four-game hitting streak, a bright spot in an otherwise difficult month that's seen Rodriguez slash just .211/.220/.298.

Rodriguez is in the lineup and batting seventh for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez is having a surprisingly successful season at the plate thus far, hitting .286 with six home runs and 17 RBI in 44 games. To put it in perspective, the 31-year-old had just four home runs and 17 RBI through 139 games in 2015 and his improvement along with his versatility has made him a valuable asset for the Pirates.
