Brendan Rodgers News
Colorado Rockies' second baseman Brendan Rodgers went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in an 11-5 lopsided loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Friday. After not starting on Thursday vs. the Marlins, Rodgers got the start at second base and hit second on Friday. He was hitless unit the top of the eighth inning when he took Ryan Hendrix deep for his second home run in as many games. The 24-year-old has been on fire over his last seven contests, slashing .500/.545/1.000 with three home runs and six RBI across 18 at-bats. The hot streak has upped his season averages to a solid .278/.355/.463 with the three home runs and 11 RBI (54 at-bats). The sample size is small but the former top prospect deserves to play every day but whether manager Bud Black decides to allow that or not is to be determined.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers produced his third home run in six games as his team lost to the Reds on Friday. Rodger's season started on May 21st, and he carries a .818 OPS, which is the highest on his club. The 24-year-old sports a .280 batting average with two home runs and ten RBI. He seems to be heating up, and the second baseman should be a player for fantasy managers to keep an eye on in June.
Colorado Rockies' second baseman Brendan Rodgers went 2-for-2 with a solo home run and two RBI in an 11-4 loss to the Marlins on Thursday. Rodgers didn't start in this ball game but made his way into the lineup in the top of the seventh with the Rockies trailing 11-0. He took Marlins starter Trevor Rogers deep for his second shot of the year, finally putting Colorado on the board. He then tacked on an RBI single in the top of the eighth inning to score C.J. Cron. The former top prospect is now slashing a solid .280/.362/.420 with two home runs and 10 RBI across 50 at-bats this year. Hopefully, the Rockies will come to their senses and start playing him every day from now on.
The oft-injured Rodgers is a young player that might benefit from a change of scenery but the trade of third baseman Nolan Arenado likely opens up some breathing room for the infield prospect to have one more shot at playing every day in Colorado. Rodgers has shown the ability to hit for both average and power in the minors but injuries and inconsistent playing time have played havoc with his MLB opportunities. He's struggled to produce a consistent launch angle while playing at the MLB level but that could also have something to do with injuries specifically repeated shoulder issues. Rodgers will enter 2021 as a wild card a player with pedigree who has had strong results at times and once looked like a potential .300 hitter with 25+ homer skills but the repeated shoulder issues cast doubt on his future. He's also dealt with a hamstring issue this spring which has cost him important development time. With an ADP nearing 383, fantasy managers are losing faith in Rodgers although he may become more attractive as the Rockies' infield picture becomes clearer as we approach spring training. If he wins an everyday gig somewhere in the infield, he deserves a late-round flyer. He should also remain on your radar in dynasty leagues at least as long as he's in a Colorado uniform.
