“Stay strong my people,” Rodriguez posted on Twitter, responding to an official Puerto Rico tweet asking for prayers.
He added in Spanish, “Bendicines a todos y rezando mucho por mi familia, amigos y todos ustedes,” which, roughly translates to “blessings for everybody and prayers for my family, friends and all of you.”
Never miss a local story.
Rodriguez was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in July. The Rangers have two players from Puerto Rico currently on their 40-man roster — Alex Claudio and A.J. Jimenez.
