Giants call son of Hall of Famer Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez to join the Major League Pitching Staff



The Giants apparently will postpone a roster on Monday afternoon bringing Dereck Rodriguez to the majors. He said so much on Instagram with the caption "Just got the best call of my life !!!!! It's showtime !!!!"

Rodriguez's first name is actually Ivan Dereck Rodriguez and, yes, that sounds pretty familiar. While many of us pine for the son of a Hall of Famer named Vladimir Guerrero, this kid is the son of Hall of Famer catcher Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez.

Dereck, 25, was actually a sixth year student who chose high school outfielders and played a few seasons with minors outfielder before moving to the pitcher in time for the 2014 season. He was with the Twins organization until this off-season, when he signed as a minor-league free agent with the Giants.

In nine triple-A starts this season, Rodriguez is 4-1 with an ERA 3.40, 1.19 WHIP and 53 strikeouts against 11 hikes in 50 1/3 innings.
