Brendan Rodgers News
The Colorado Rockies and second baseman Brendan Rodgers avoided salary arbitration on Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $2.7 million deal. In his fourth year in the big leagues with the Rockies in 2022, Rodgers slashed .266/.325/.408 with a .733 OPS, 13 home runs, 63 RBI and 72 runs scored in 581 plate appearances and a career-high 137 games. He hasn't been much to look at from a fantasy perspective with only 28 home runs, 123 RBI and no stolen bases in four seasons at Coors Field, but offers the Rockies great defense at the keystone and could develop more power along the way. Rodgers remains a decent selection as a middle infielder in deep mixed leagues in 2023.
The Colorado Rockies activated second baseman Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) from the injured list on Thursday and placed outfielder Connor Joe (ribs) on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Rodgers went on the IL a week ago and will be back for the final handful of games in the 2022 regular season. It remains to be seen if he'll be back in the starting lineup on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants. The 26-year-old is returning to a .261/.319/.396 slash line with 11 homers, 61 RBI and 68 runs in 502 at-bats this year. Joe will miss the rest of the regular season with his injury. He'll finish his season hitting .238/.338/.359 with seven home runs, 28 RBI, 56 runs scored and six stolen bases in 111 games in his second season in Colorado.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants. Rodgers is dealing with a hamstring injury and was last in the lineup on Sunday. There's a chance he'll be back in the lineup this weekend against the San Diego Padres, though, since his MRI results were encouraging. With Rodgers out another game, Ryan McMahon will get another start at second base and bat leadoff against Giants right-hander John Brebbia on Thursday. McMahon has some DFS sleeper appeal once again despite going 0-for-4 in the loss to the Giants on Wednesday. The 27-year-old has 17 home runs and 63 RBI in 487 at-bats on the season.
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.
