Born in Buenos Aires, Rodríguez made his league debut for Boca Juniors in a 2–1 away defeat to Chacarita Juniors on December 10, 2000. He went on to establish himself as an important player in the Boca Juniors team that won a host of national and international tournament in the early 2000s. In 2003, he was part of the Boca team that won the Intercontinental Cup.
On June 24, 2013, São Paulo signed Rodríguez to a two-year contract. On April 7, 2014, after almost one year playing for São Paulo, Rodríguez, along with Fabrício, was removed from the main staff of the club, and sent on loan to Boca Juniors. Rodríguez, who had a contract with the club until June 2015, will therefore no longer play for São Paulo.
Rodríguez was part of the gold medal winning Argentine Olympic football team at the 2004 Summer Olympics and has played for the full Argentina national team on an infrequent basis since 2003. He was called by coach Diego Maradona to play in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
