Ivan Rodriguez hasn’t played since July 6 due to an oblique injury and the Nationals don’t really have any room for him with Wilson Ramos and Jesus Flores splitting time behind the plate, but the future Hall of Famer is determined to play again this season.

Steven Miller of MLB.com reports that Rodriguez will begin a rehab assignment Saturday at Single-A, although he already had a rehab stint scheduled for earlier this month and had to cancel those plans.

If everything goes well this time around Rodriguez is hoping to play four games in the minors and then rejoin the Nationals late next week, by which point rosters will have expended and activating him from the disabled list without a clear role to fill won’t be an issue.

    I was 5 years old when Pudge took the field for the first time. I have followed him ever since from Texas to Florida to Detorit to NYY to Houston back to Texas to Washington. He’s a Hall of Famer, but it’s time for him to hang up his catching equipment and call it a career.

    In a perfect world, I wish he would sign a one day deal and retire a Ranger.
