The son of hall of fame catcher Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez, Dereck Rodriguez, made his big league debut for the Giants on tuesday.
The 26-year-old is a pitcher converted from outfielder.
He got his call-up Monday afternoon and pressed into service when Jeff Samardzija left the game with shoulder stiffness.
Rodriguez’s final line was four runs (one earned) and five hits over 3 and a third innings.
Ivan Rodriguez who was out of the country during his son’s debut, congratulated Derrick over twitter..
