Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was Rodriguez's fourth of the season and second in four games since he was traded back to Pittsburgh. He's started three of the last four games -- one at shortstop, one in right field and one at second base. He should continue to see semi-regular starts while serving in a super-utility role.

Rodriguez was traded to the Pirates for a catching prospect on Saturday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The exact prospect headed to Atlanta has not been announced. Rodriguez was dealt after the Pirates claimed him on waivers. He will serve as a utility option for Pittsburgh, so this move doesn't necessarily increase his fantasy value. Rodriguez was hitting .162 (.250 BABIP) with two home runs and one steal in 47 plate appearances this season.

Rodriguez is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez was given the first crack at the starting left field duties with Matt Kemp (hamstring) on the shelf, but the Braves will try out Matt Adams in left field for the first time to try to get the offense back in gear. The utility man has been pretty awful since returning from a shoulder injury, as he holds just a .138 batting average on the season.

Rodriguez is out of the lineup Monday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez picked up the first two starts in left field following Matt Kemp's (hamstring) placement on the 10-day disabled list Saturday, but wasn't able to do much with the opportunity, going 0-for-8 with five strikeouts in those contests. Manager Brian Snitker will see if Danny Santana can offer better production from that position Monday, but if he's unable to get the job done, reserves Lane Adams and Micah Johnson could receive trials in left field.

Rodriguez will start in left field and bat eighth Sunday against the Phillies, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's the second consecutive start in left field for Rodriguez, who may be first in line for regular duties at the position following Matt Kemp's (hamstring) placement on the disabled list. While Rodriguez's surprisingly quick return from a shoulder injury suffered in an offseason car accident has made for a nice feel-good story, he's yet to produce much through 11 games with the Braves, going 4-for-26 with two home runs.

Rodriguez launched a pinch-hit, two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Although he proved to put the Braves' only runs on the board in one swing, Rodriguez's return from an offseason shoulder injury hasn't been pretty. The homer was just his second hit in 15 at-bats since being activated, and he also has eight strikeouts to his name already. The utility man will likely be relegated to a reserve role for the rest of the season if he continues to scuffle at the dish.

Rodriguez (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and is in the starting lineup for Monday's contest with the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

After initial reports suggested that the utility man would miss the entire 2017 campaign, Rodriguez will return to provide the Braves with lots of positional versatility. He'll bat seventh and play third base in his first game back, although it seems like he'll act in more of a reserve role now that he's back in the fray.

Rodriguez (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the DL prior to Monday's game against the Cubs, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran utility player signed with Atlanta in the offseason but has yet to make his Braves debut after a car accident in February. Rodriguez posted a career-best .859 OPS last season with Pittsburgh but likely won't see much playing time off the bench barring a trade or injury to a starter.

Rodriguez (shoulder) will continue rehabbing in the minors over the weekend before being re-evaluated by the team prior to Monday's game against the Cubs, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez has played in nine rehab games with various minor-league teams in the Braves' organization, going 3-for-32 with one RBI during that span. The infielder has been progressing quickly, but he is likely still another couple weeks away from returning to the big-league club. There will be more information with a clear timetable for the rest of his recovery after this weekend.

Rodriquez (shoulder) may begin his rehab assignment at Triple-A Gwinnett as soon as this weekend, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

The shortstop has been out since undergoing shoulder surgery this February, but has continued to move along at a timely pace during his recovery. He has already played in four games with a couple different teams in the Atlanta system, and this would mark another key step in his advancement. Rodriguez is still expected to rejoin the team in late July if all goes well.
