Felix Rodriguez

Félix Antonio Rodríguez (born September 9, 1972 in Montecristi, Dominican Republic) is a Major League Baseball relief pitcher for the Camden Riversharks.

Rodríguez was signed by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1989 as a free agent, originally as a catcher. He batted .291 as a catcher, but his arm was so impressive that the organization moved him to the mound in 1993. He began his major league career in 1995 with the Dodgers, was on waivers throughout 1996, was picked up by the Cincinnati Reds, where he played in 1997. In 1998, he played for the Arizona Diamondbacks, then with the San Francisco Giants from 1999-2004. He started 2004 with the Giants before being traded to the Philadelphia Phillies. It was with the Giants in Game Six of the 2002 World Series that he gave up the rally-starting home run to Angels first baseman Scott Spiezio that lost the Giants the game. He began 2005 with the New York Yankees, after being traded from the Phillies for center fielder Kenny Lofton in a one-for-one deal. In spring training 2006, he signed with the Washington Nationals, but was released at the end of the season. He subsequently signed a minor league deal with the Marlins but didn't make the team and was released on March 28, 2007. He finished the 2007 season playing for the Kia Tigers in the Korean Baseball Organization.

In 2008, Rodríguez played for the Camden Riversharks in the independent Atlantic League and had a 1.09 ERA in 32 games. In February 2009, he signed a minor league contract with the Boston Red Sox.
