Giants call up Ivan Rodriguez’s son Dereck

san francisco giants

The San Francisco Giants are giving a Major League debut to the son of iconic MLB catcher Ivan Rodriguez.

Dereck Rodriguez, an outfielder-turned-pitcher, is being called up by the Giants, according to his Instagram.

Pitching for Sacramento in the Pacific Coast League, Rodriguez posted a 3.40 ERA in nine starts. He will be used out of the bullpen in San Francisco.

Rodriguez was drafted as an outfielder, but the 25-year-old has only been pitching since 2013. That’s a remarkably quick rise, and now he’ll have a chance to break out of his father’s shadow and form his own big league career.
