Mark Shapiro, Cleveland Indians president: "When we assess talent acquisition, we factor in all variables relative to a player's performance -- tools, character, personality and medical risk are among the main areas of evaluation. "Sexual orientation has not and never would be an area of consideration, and it certainly would not prevent us from acquiring a player we felt could help the team be in a better position to win a championship."

After a slow start in the Carolina League, Rodriguez has started to come alive with the bat with the warmer weather, and after going 5-for-5 on Sunday afternoon, he's now hitting .275/.309/.424. His approach still needs a lot of work, but his kind of overall skill set is a rarity.
