Brendan Rodgers News
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.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, a walk, and two runs scored in a 9-8 win over the Nationals on Friday. Rodgers had a big game at the plate, reaching three times and driving in three runs. He swatted his 13th homer of the season in the fifth inning, a two-run blast, before hitting the go-ahead RBI single in the ninth inning to give Colorado a 9-8 lead. They would go on to win the ball game as a result of base knock. He's now homered twice in the last seven games and is rocking a .860 OPS over that span. Overall, the 25-year-old is slashing .284/.333/.466 with 13 home runs and 45 RBI across 328 at-bats.
Colorado Rockies infielder Brendan Rodgers went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts in a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday. Rodgers only picked up one hit on Tuesday but it was a big one. He broke up a 2-2 tie in the top of the fifth inning when he took Touki Toussaint deep for a two-run shot with Raimel Tapia aboard. The 25-year-old infielder is now up to 12 home runs for the season to go along with 42 RBI. He's slashing .281/.330/.459 across 320 at-bats as well. He's been solid, not special, but it's a step in the right direction for the former top prospect. If he can finish the year on a hot streak then he'll be a trendy pick in next year's drafts.
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.
