Tampa Bay has avoided arbitration with Sean Rodriguez, signing the infielder to a one-year, $1 million deal.

Rodriguez hasn’t hit as well as hoped based on his minor-league track record, batting just .225 with a .658 OPS that included a measly .607 mark this year, but he’s gotten 378, 436, and 342 plate appearances for the Rays during the past three seasons.

At age 28 he figures to fill a similar utility man/quasi-starter role in 2013.

    I don’t like this move, to me he is a miner league Montgomery level player.

    He’s already had more than enough chances because Maddening Joe kept running him out there night after night along with Pena no matter how bad they both were doing their imitations of Hoovers, Orecks, Dysons and Eurekas.

    This money should have gone to keeping Keppinger on the team and would have been a way better value.

    SeanRod should have been swept out of town with Pena.
