"I can't say that I wasn't expecting it," Rodriguez said. "But I'm sad, I'm not going to lie to you. I'm just really sad because I definitely didn't want to leave the organization. But at the same time, this is a business and it's part of the game. At the same time, it's a new opportunity for me and I'm looking forward to the challenge once again, and hopefully I can do my best and get the job done."
