Seattle Mariners rookie Julio Rodriguez is on fire this season. He’s doing things that even Mike Trout can’t do.

Seattle Mariners rookie Julio Rodriguez is quickly proving he’s worthy of the big leagues. According to Alex Mayer, Rodriguez has surpassed some of Mike Trout’s achievements. Mayer wrote: “Julio Rodriguez is the fastest player in AL history (107 career) with 20+ home runs and 20+ stolen bases, surpassing Mike Rodriguez. Trout (112 times).”

Rodriguez is fulfilling his expected potential. This season, he’s hitting .271/.328/.475 with an OPS of .803. His potential was shown early on in the minors, which helped him move up quickly in the farm system. Start the rookie league in 2018, play single A and high A in 2019, and play high A and double A in 2021. He made his major championship debut this season.

He’s hit 20 home runs in the majors and shows no signs of slowing down.

Rodriguez , nicknamed “J-Rod,” easily stands out among most potential clients. According to MLB.com, he was once the No. 3 prospect on MLB Pipeline.

If he’s like Mike Trout, he seems so far, he’s not at his peak. Trout hit .220/.281/.390 in his first season with an OPS of .671. By his second season, he was hitting 0.326/.399/.564 with an OPS of 0.963. He’s currently in his 12th season, and he’s not slowing down.

J-Rod has the same potential. If he continues on his path, he could very well be one of the best players in Major League Baseball.
