Sean Rodriguez's left shoulder surgery involved the repair of a badly torn rotator cuff, labrum damage and a biceps tendon that had to relocated.

It's no wonder that he's essentially already been ruled out for the season. Rodriguez, who suffered the injuries during a car crash in late January, is under contract with the Braves through 2018.

Sean Rodriguez underwent surgery Tuesday to repair the rotator cuff in his left shoulder.

Rodriguez, who signed a two-year deal with the Braves earlier this winter, suffered the unfortunate injury in a car crash on January 28. The expectation is that he'll miss the entire season. It's too bad, as he figured to play an important role with Atlanta. The Braves have since acquired Brandon Phillips from the Reds to play second base.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Sean Rodriguez will undergo left shoulder surgery next week and is expected to miss 3-5 months.

That would explain why the Braves are deep in talks to acquire Brandon Phillips from Cincinnati. Rodriguez suffered the injury in a car accident last week. Rodriguez was expected to platoon with Jace Peterson but now it looks like Phillips will man second base for Atlanta. The 31-year-old hit .270 while contributing a career-high 18 home runs in 140 games for Pittsburgh last season.

The Atlanta Braves confirmed Sunday that Sean Rodriguez is okay after he and his family were involved in a car crash on Saturday evening in Miami.

Rodriguez was driving with his family when they were T-boned by a driver in a stolen Miami-Dade Police cruiser. His wife Giselle is hospitalized and in fair condition while both of his children, ages eight and two, are in serious but stable condition. Our thoughts go out to the Rodriguez family at this time for a speedy recovery.

Braves signed INF/OF Sean Rodriguez to a two-year, $11.5 million contract.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported news of the signing while Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported the financial details. Rodriguez broke out with 18 homers and an .859 OPS as a member of the Pirates in 2016 and could be in line for the starting second base gig in Atlanta, at least until Ozzie Albies is deemed ready for the majors. The 31-year-old is capable of providing plenty of value in a utility role.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Braves have signed Sean Rodriguez to a two-year deal, pending a physical.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that the deal carries a guarantee of $11.5 million. Rodriguez will receive a $1.5 million signing bonus and will make $5 million in 2016 and 2017. The 31-year-old thrived in a utility role with the Pirates this past season, but he could serve as the primary second baseman over Jace Peterson in Atlanta. He also gives the Braves an alternative to Adonis Garcia at third base. Rodriguez established new career-bests with 18 homers with an .859 OPS in 2016.

Shi Davidi of reports that Sean Rodriguez is emerging as a possible fit for the Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays have also checked in with Steve Pearce as they attempt to land a right-handed bat who can play the outfield and first base. The versatile Rodriguez is coming off a career-best season where he put up 18 homers and an .859 OPS. It was reported on Tuesday that the Pirates are among five teams who have expressed interest in him.

The Pirates are one of five teams with interest in free agent utility man Sean Rodriguez, per Chris Cotillo of SB Nation.

Both sides have expressed interest in his potential return, but his representatives are trying to build a market for him elsewhere just in case progress isn't made. Rodriguez turns 32 in April and put up career-highs with 18 homers, 56 RBI, and an .859 OPS this past season. He played all four infield positions and all three outfield spots.

Sean Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Rodriguez has been treating NL pitchers like Gatorade coolers all season long, bashing 18 homers in just 267 at-bats. It's more likely a career year, but with his versatility, he'll be an interesting free agent this winter.

Sean Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored to help the Pirates defeat the Reds 7-3 in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

The homer was the fourth for Rodriguez in his last six games -- including his second Saturday, as he went deep in both ends of the doubleheader -- and he's got 16 homers and 50 RBI on the year. It'll go down as a career year for the 31-year-old, who's slashing .266/.349/.516 overall.

Sean Rodriguez went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in a win over the Phillies on Thursday.

Rodriguez hit a solo homer in the fifth inning and capped the Pirates' 15-run outburst with a two-RBI single in the ninth. He went 6-for-12 with two home runs in the four-game series against the Phils, starting three of the four games. The jack of all trades has been a quietly productive offensive player for the Bucs this year, batting .259/.343/.498 with 14 homers, 47 RBI and 40 runs scored in 124 games.

Sean Rodriguez clubbed a pinch-hit, go-ahead, three-run homer in the ninth inning of Tuesday's comeback win over the Phillies.

Jeanmar Gomez allowed a walk and a double prior to Rodriguez's blast, as he blew a save and was pulled without recording an out. It was Rodriguez's 13th longball of the season, as he's again been a useful utility player for the Pirates with a .251/.340/.485 batting line while playing all over the field.

Sean Rodriguez led off the ninth inning with a solo blast to end the game as the Pirates beat the Reds on Friday.

It was his only at-bat of the night after entering the game in a double switch. The veteran journeyman has seen part-time duty this year. He has played in 94 games but has received only 187 at-bats. He is batting .242/.327/.484 with 11 home runs.

Sean Rodriguez doubled twice and knocked in four runs Wednesday against the Mariners.

Rodriguez entered the night with a .675 OPS and no homers in 65 at-bats in June, so he had cooled considerably after his fantastic start. Still, he's been a terrific asset for the Pirates with his production and versatility this year.
