The center fielder for Seattle Mariners, Julio Rodriguez, will make his MLB all-star debut this month Tuesday night at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.

Rockie outfielder for Seattle Mariners Julio Rodriguez is a rare breed of player. During the Monday game against the San Diego Pardes, Rodriguez belted a long home run into the left-field seats, his 15 of the season. 

Julio became the first Mariners rookie since Devin White in 1987 with at least 15 homers and 15 stolen bases before the All-Star break and also the fifth player in Seattle's history to accomplish the feat, joining Key Griffey Jr. and Alex Rodriguez.

Is Julio Rodriguez Alex Rodriguez's Nephew?

Dominican-born and raised baseball star signed a bonus of $1.75 million with Seattle Mariners. He made his professional debut with Dominican Summer League Mariners in 2018, playing primarily in right field and batting with 50 runs, nine triples, five home runs, ten stolen bases, and 36 runs batted in without being caught 219 at-bats over 59 games.

In the first half of his debut, on the eight-man field, Seattle's 21 years old all-star and rookie phenom Julio smashed sixteen home runs. 

As a kid, Julio admired Alex Rogriguez, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, and Ichiro Suzuki, among other baseball players. Alex Rodriguez is a former American professional third baseman, businessman, and philanthropist.

Rodriguez likes to set big goals and achieve them, which he learned from his father, Julio Sr, and the person he looks up to, Alex Rodriguez. Alex shares the same surname as that Julio, who was also born and raised in Dominic; this new information has brought further questions to fans, are they related, and some wonder if Julio is their nephew of Rodriguez.

Aside from his father and family, his biggest inspiration is another Rodriguez: a former bigshot player from the same Seattle Marines. As a nod to his idol and a reminder that he wants to surpass A-Rod's incredible early-career marks, he tags his photos #TheJRodShow.

Baseball Player Julio Rodriguez Parents & Ethnicity

Dominican baseball player Julio was born to his father Julio Rodrguez Sr and mother Yasmin Reyes on December 29, 2000, in Loma de Cabrera, Dominican Republic. His parents supported his decision to make a career out of baseball and provided him with every opportunity to pursue his career.

Rodriguez learned from his father and idol, Alex Rodriguez, to set big goals and work hard to achieve them. His father also comes from a baseball background as he was scouted in the Dominican Republic but was never signed.
