Guillermro Rodriguez called to the show

I really like Justin Knoedler, he seems like a good catch and throw catcher which seems like what you want in a backup catcher and he's putting up a decent batting line at Fresno this year. My question is, Why would the Giants call up Rodriguez before Knoedler? I don't buy what the article on sfgiants.com states,

"[Rodriguez has] been in the organization for a while, and he knows the pitching staff from Spring Training," manager Bruce Bochy said."

Because the reason seems pretty flimsy, I saw Rodriguez in spring training and he looked pretty brutal at and behind the plate. The only reason I can think of is that if Alfonzo comes back this year they would have to option Knoedler back to AAA and they don't think that he would clear waivers again...or maybe they just want to keep getting Knoedler consistant at-bats.

Anyway, I guess its not a big deal but I would have liked to see Knoedler in the show.
