Since 2006, three organizations have handed Ronny Cedeno their starting shortstop job: the Cubs, Mariners and Pirates. Only once since then has Cedeno had an OBP above .300 (.328 for Chicago in '08.). Now 28, Cedeno is a subpar shortstop option for any team—even one of the league's worst. He strikes out more than four times as often as he walks, he doesn't have speed (32 steals, 15 times caught stealing in his six-year career) or power (31 home runs, .356 slugging percentage), and his defense hasn't rated well since 2007. He is the epitome of that stathead totem, the replacement-level player. Rule 5 pick Josh Rodriguez, 26, should be Pittsburgh's starting shortstop. Rodriguez showed plate discipline and power coming through the Indians' system, although his speed was lost to a 2009 hamstring injury that cost him most of that season. His .297/.378/.484 line at two levels last year wasn't enough to get him into the Indians' crowded middle-infield picture, making him available to the Pirates. They have slotted Rodriguez as a bench player. Rodriguez may or may not be better than Cedeno, but the Pirates have absolutely nothing to lose by playing him every day and finding out.
