Carlos Gabriel Rodríguez Orantes (born 12 April 1990) is a Panamanian football defender.

Club career[edit]

He studied and graduated in Colegio Pureza de María. Carlos Rodríguez began his career with Chepo making his debut in the Liga Panameña de Fútbol during the 2007 season. In 2008 the promising fullback was sent on loan to Uruguay's Defensor Sporting and appeared in 3 league matches for the Montevideo club. Upon returning to Chepo he quickly established himself as a first team regular and had his best season in 2010/11 in which he made 29 appearances and scored 3 goals. As a result of his play with Chepo he was signed by one of Panama's top club Tauro at the conclusion of the season.

Rodríguez was released by Dallas on November 19, 2012.[2] After a season at Chepo, he returned to Tauro in January 2014,[3] only to move abroad again in summer 2014 to play for Colombian side Fortaleza.[4]

In July 2015 he joined San Francisco.[5]
