International bat in that shows a great deal of promise. Cousin of Washington Nationals outfielder Roger Bernadina. Room to add 10-15 lbs. Tremendous fastball hitter with some serious bat speed; destroys mistake pitches. Has trouble making contact with off-speed stuff; more so with breaking balls than changeups. Free swinger. Above-average speed. Looks lost in field at times, especially on the basepaths. Average arm strength. Has a rocking hitch in the hands (ever so slight) to go along with plus hand speed, which could improve as he matures and gains additional strength. Good, proper drive and hip rotation. Has a violent swing that gets him caught out in front on anything with movement. His brother Roger had similar traits and was able to improve his tools with proper coaching. If he establishes ability to sit on pitches and maintain patience at the plate Roderick could be dangerous.
