Pudge won't be back soon

Ivan RodriguezBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Ivan Rodriguez would seem like the perfect trade candidate for a team in need of a catcher -- except for the fact that he's on the disabled list and apparently isn't going to be ready to come back anytime soon.

Rodriguez was eligible to come off the disabled list Friday, but he suffered a setback to his strained right oblique, manager Davey Johnson told reporters, including Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post.

"Pudge is not doing too good," Johnson said.

Rodriguez is expected to spend a week in Miami with a physical therapist and could then miss several more weeks recovering.

"I'm not 100 percent right now," Rodriguez told The Post. "It's still right there. If you're still hurt, it's not 100 percent. That's what it is. That area, I asked guys that have had that before. It takes some time. It's one of those pain-in-the-butt injuries."

Rodriguez will likely spend time with the Nationals' rookie level team in the Gulf Coast League.

The Giants reportedly had some interest in the veteran catcher, but it doesn't seem Rodriguez will be headed anywhere before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Rodriguez could still be traded in August if he clears waivers.
