J.P. Taravella pitcher Derek Rodriguez is officially committed to playing college baseball at St. Thomas University in Miami.

Rodriguez started his high school career in Orlando and then played two years on the varsity baseball team at Marjory Stoneman Douglas before coming to J.P. Taravella. In his career, he is 4-1 with six saves in 20 relief appearances.

He has helped contribute this year with his ERA of .41. He has struck out 22 hitters in 17 innings, helping the Trojans to a record of 19-4 and win the High School Baseball Network First Pitch Elite Tournament in March.

“He is a very talented kid and has a great opportunity to step in day one and get innings,” said Head Coach Joe Giummule.

Before attending STU next fall, Rodriguez and the Trojans are preparing for the District Tournament. They can potentially have a rematch against Marjory Stoneman Douglas in the final after their 4-3 win earlier this season. Following that, he will join a program at STU that is currently 33-14 this season.
