Sean Rodriguez

For this post, I'd appreciate the help of especially the Angels fans on this site (along with everybody else).  I want to figure out the Angels 2B issues.  They have Howie Kendrick, Erick Aybar, Maicer Izturis, and then Sean Rodriguez (in AAA).

Howie Kendrick is hitting 

Team League AVG G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP SLG OPS
LAA AL .227 47 172 22 39 6 1 4 21
8 33 6 2 .273 .343 .616

Erick Aybar is hitting

Team League AVG G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP SLG OPS
LAA AL .277 40 141 14 39 9 2 1 13
6 16 1 1 .305 .390 .695

Maicer Izturis is hitting

Team League AVG G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP SLG OPS
LAA AL .261 35 111 20 29 3 0 0 13
7 13 5 1 .303 .288 .592

Sean Rodriguez is hitting

Team League AVG G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI TB BB SO SB CS OBP SLG OPS
SLC PCL .276 52 185 39 51 6 2 19 57 118 19 60 6 1 .358 .638 .996

Obviously, Sean Rodriguez has the best power out of the three.  He is also a plus defender (I don't know how well Aybar and Izturis field, but I'm guessing they are solid considering their SS background) while Howie Kendrick is a poor defenseman.  I know his ML debut last year was less than memorable, but his AAA stats are outstanding; his OPS has been near 1.000 for quite a while, while LAA's other 3 2B candidates have not topped .700  My question is why hasn't he gotten another shot (other than Scioscia loving little bunting 2B) and who you would most like to have at 2B and why.
