Brendan Rodgers News
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers went 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI, and two strikeouts in a 5-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. Rodgers picked up his third triple of the season in the fifth inning, scoring Daniel Bard, and giving the Rockies a 4-0 lead. The 25-year-old showed some flashes this season and should be an integral part of the rebuilding Rockies' nucleus next year. He finishes the 2021 season with a .284 batting average, .798 OPS, 15 home runs, and 51 RBI over 387 at-bats.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers (head) was removed from Monday's game against the Washington Nationals in the first inning after being hit in the helmet by a pitch. Fortunately, he went on to pass all concussion protocols. He should be considered day-to-day. Rodgers has been hitting well lately with a .302/.323/.510 slash line in September. He has 15 home runs, 48 RBI and 47 runs over 97 games on the year. The 25-year-old has been plagued with injuries for several years, but we've finally gotten an extended look at him in the majors and he's delivered some solid production. He'll be a good mid-round target in drafts next spring.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, two RBI, and two runs scored in a 6-0 win over the Nationals on Saturday. Rodgers put the Rockies on the board in the top of the first inning with a two-run blast off Patrick Corbin, his third home run in the last four games. He later added a double and scored another run. The 25-year-old has been raking over the last 15 contests, slashing .333/.364/.587 with four home runs and 12 RBI over that span. For the year, he's got a solid .288/.337/.480 batting line with 14 home runs and 47 RBI over 333 at-bats on the year. He's looking to finish the season on a high note.
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.
