Rodriguez made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim against the New York Yankees on May 2, 2009, at Yankee Stadium, pitching in one inning, getting two outs, and giving up three runs.
After the 2013 season, Rodriguez signed a one-year contract with the Athletics for 2014, avoiding arbitration. However, the A's designated Rodriguez for assignment on December 18, only a couple weeks after signing the deal, removing him from the 40-man roster to allow for pitcher Eury De La Rosa to be added from the Arizona Diamondbacks. His contract was purchased from Triple-A Nashville and he was added to the Athletics active roster on May 7, 2015.
