Rodriguez will remain the ninth-inning reliever until Drew Storen returns from the disabled list after the All-Star break. Entering Monday's action, Rodriguez had a team-leading eight saves with a 4.70 ERA.
Johnson doesn't want to hear questions about Rodriguez's role with the team. In fact, Johnson went so far as to say that Rodriguez is doing a great job.
"Don't be asking those questions to me [any more]," Johnson said. "If there is something that is going to change, I'll volunteer it. [Rodriguez] has done a great job. It was a muddy field yesterday. I don't know anybody who could have gotten Votto out yesterday. [Votto] was unbelievable."
