Brendan Rodgers News
Colorado Rockies infielder Brendan Rodgers is out of Saturday's starting lineup versus the San Francisco Giants. Rodgers missed some action recently due to an illness, but this absence appears to be rest related. The 27-year-old will get a breather after going 5-for-20 over his last five games. Harold Castro will cover second base and bat eighth versus right-hander Logan Webb on Saturday. Fantasy managers should adjust their lineups with Rodgers on the bench.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers (illness) is back at second base and is hitting fifth for the Rockies on Friday against left-hander Hyun Jin Ryu and the visiting Toronto Blue Jays. Rodgers will be playing in his first game since Sunday due to an illness, but it shouldn't really move the fantasy needle. The 27-year-old has only managed to play in 20 games this year for Colorado due to injury, and he's gone just 17-for-78 (.218) with no home runs, four doubles, a triple, 10 RBI and eight runs scored in 84 plate appearances. Believe it or not, Rodgers is also still searching for his first career stolen base in his fifth MLB season, and he's only hit 28 home runs in 1,182 career trips to the plate.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers (illness) has been scratched from Wednesday's starting lineup against the visiting Atlanta Braves. Alan Trejo is now starting at the keystone and batting eighth against Braves rookie right-hander Darius Vines. Rodgers will now miss his second straight game due to an illness. Not many fantasy managers were going to be starting the 27-year-old anyway, as he's hit just .218/.274/.295 with no home runs, 10 RBI and eight runs scored in 78 at-bats in 2023 in yet another disappointing season in Colorado. Trejo is a defense-first player that's hitting .235 (40-for-170) with only two homers, 21 RBI, four stolen bases and 16 runs scored in a bench role for the Rockies.
Colorado Rockies second baseman Brendan Rodgers enters his fifth season in the major leagues in 2023 needing to do something to earn the trust of fantasy managers. He finished the 2022 campaign with a .266/.325/.408 slash line with a .733 OPS, 13 home runs, 63 RBI and 72 runs scored in a career-high 581 plate appearances and 137 games played. The 26-year-old did win his first Gold Glove award on defense, but on the offensive side, he's left a lot to be desired. Injuries had been an issue for Rodgers previously, but even with better health in 2022 he disappointed. There's nothing sexy that stands out about his game for fantasy purposes, and he's struggled to hit well on the road early in his career. Making things worse, he has yet to steal a base in the big leagues. A post-hype breakout probably isn't coming, although youth makes him a decent middle-infield flier in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.
