Brendan Rodgers News
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers (hamstring) will miss "at least a month" due to a hamstring strain suffered on Saturday, according to William Ladson of MLB.com. Rodgers injured himself attempting to steal second base, and early reports had suggested he would be able to return in time for Opening Day. Now it appears he'll miss significant time, which will likely lead to Ryan McMahon moving to second base, Josh Fuentes to third and C.J. Cron taking over at first base.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers, who injured his hamstring on Saturday while attempting to steal second base, has a shot to be ready for Opening Day. Rockies manager Bud Black told reporters on Sunday that the "training staff is encouraged" by Rodgers' hamstring. "Some of the things they look for--if he feels it walking, if he feels it in certain movements...he doesn't," Black added. It's still very early as the 24-year-old strained his hamstring just one day ago but the early indications are positive. This is very good news as Opening Day approaches because the injury looked much worse than the diagnosis. The team will continue to provide updates on Rodgers as the regular season inches closer but they sound optimistic that he'll be ready to go, barring any setbacks. This should please fantasy managers that have already rostered Rodgers in hopes that he reaches his potential this season.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers injured his hamstring while attempting to steal second base in the fifth inning of Saturday's Cactus League game vs. the Mariners. Rodgers was 1-for-2 with an RBI single for exiting the game. He stopped short and starting limping before dropping to the ground as he approached second base. He was able to walk off on his own and it appears, at least initially, that a serious injury has been avoided. Outfielder Chris Owings shifted down to second base to replace Rodgers while outfielder Jameson Hannah moved to centerfield and took his spot in the batting order. We should learn more about the injury in manager Bud Black's press conference but consider Rodgers day-to-day for now. Garrett Hampson, who's primarily played in the outfield in Cactus League play, will likely shift down to second base for as long as Rodgers is out.
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.
