[edit] Biographical Information

Pitcher Paco Rodriguez became the first player selected in the 2012 amateur draft to reach the majors when he made his big league debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers that September.

After attending high school at Gulliver Preparatory School in Florida, Rodriguez was selected by the Houston Astros in the 48th round of the 2009 amateur draft but did not sign. Instead, he opted to attend the University of Florida. As a junior there, he went 3-2 with a 2.08 ERA, 79 strikeouts, and 4 saves. He was then selected by the Dodgers in the second round of the 2012 draft.

Rodriguez began his pro career with the Great Lakes Loons in 2012 and did not allow an earned run in 6 appearances with the club. He was then promoted to the AA Chattanooga Lookouts, for whom he was 1-0 with a 1.32 ERA and 3 saves in 15 outings. The Dodgers called him up to the majors in September, and he made his big league debut on September 9th against the San Francisco Giants. He faced only one batter, Brandon Belt, and retired him on a groundout.
