Al Pedrique, manager of the Triple-A Tucson Sidewinders for the last two seasons, will replace Rodriguez, who started working for the team in 2001.
Bench coach Glenn Sherlock will take over as first-base coach.
Robin Yount will move from first-base coach to assisting Manager Bob Brenly on the bench.
Pitching coach Chuck Kniffin and bullpen coach Mark Davis will remain in their positions.
