Rodgers (hamstring) took at-bats against rehabbing Rockies starter Kyle Freeland (shoulder) in a simulated game Tuesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Rodgers was reportedly running the bases after getting a hit in the sim game -- a sign that the 24-year-old may be nearly recovered from the right hamstring strain he suffered in mid-March.

Once the hamstring injury is in the rearview mirror, Rodgers could be a candidate to fill an everyday role in the Colorado infield alongside shortstop Trevor Story.
