Beckham batted .217 with five home runs and a .655 OPS in 85 games for the Braves this year. The veteran infielder has hit just .158 with a .499 OPS since the All-Star break.
Rodriguez has compiled a .264 batting average while totaling 263 games over six Minor League seasons. The 23-year-old infielder has played just one game above the Class A Advanced level.
