Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Fully clear of rehab work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers has been working out at a local high school during the MLB shutdown and has finished the rehab work from last year's shoulder surgery, Gerard Gilberto of MiLB.com reports.

The 23-year-old saw some action in spring training before things were shut down due to the coronavirus, going 3-for-7 in four games. Rodgers missed the second half of the 2019 season after undergoing surgery in June to repair the labrum in his right shoulder, limiting his season to 62 games between Triple-A and the majors. The potential for expanded rosters if/when baseball resumes likely means he'd be with the major-league club for the start of the season.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Expects to play infield next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) said Thursday that he expects to see action in the field in a Cactus League game "within a week," Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

While it once seemed to be a foregone conclusion that Rodgers would open the season on the injured list as he continued his rehab from July shoulder surgery, the 23-year-old has made tremendous progress over the past couple months, keeping hope alive that he'll be ready to go for Opening Day. Per Saunders, Rodgers will make his spring debut Thursday as a designated hitter in the Rockies' split-squad game against the White Sox. He's expected to make a few more appearances as a DH before potentially drawing a start at second base or shortstop next week, which would represent the final hurdle he needs to clear to prove he's healthy. Since Rodgers still has minor-league options remaining, the Rockies may prefer to have him open the season at Triple-A Albuquerque so he can play on an everyday basis. In any case, he likely won't have to wait long before making his 2020 debut with the big club.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Ready for DH work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) said he will serve as a designated hitter in one of the Rockies' split-squad games Thursday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Rodgers has made rapid progress in his recovery from July surgery to repair a torn labrum, as the Rockies were previously uncertain that the 23-year-old would be ready to play in games at any point in spring training. After he was able to gradually ratchet up the intensity of his workouts in the last few weeks, however, Rodgers looks like he'll be ready to make his Cactus League debut in a purely offensive role. The Rockies haven't indicated if Rodgers will be able to play the middle infield before the end of spring training, making it uncertain if he'll be included on the Opening Day roster.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Expected to DH next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) is on track to make his Cactus League debut as a designated hitter at some point next week, and he could be ready to play second base before spring training concludes, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

When Rodgers underwent surgery last July to repair a torn labrum, the prevailing belief was that his recovery would extend into the first month of the regular season. The 23-year-old has since accelerated his timeline, however, as he's been able to perform full baseball activities for the past three weeks to put himself on track to participate in spring games. Despite his rapid progress, Rodgers still seems likely to either open the season on the Rockies' injured list or report to Triple-A Albuquerque to begin the year. Colorado wants Rodgers to play on an everyday basis, and it would probably behoove the organization to have him shake off the post-surgery rust in the minors rather than at the big-league level.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Progressing faster than expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) could play in the field before the end of spring training, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Rodgers underwent right labrum surgery in July and was expected to see some at-bats as a designated hitter this spring, but manager Bud Black said Saturday that his recovery is going faster than expected, and he could be ready to play in the field prior to the end of spring training. Rodgers' recovery will still likely extend into the regular season, but Saturday's update is encouraging for his eventual return.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Could get DH work in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said that Rodgers (shoulder) could get some at-bats as a designated hitter in Cactus League games this spring, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Rodgers is still recovering from the season-ending procedure he required last July to repair the labrum in his right shoulder. While the fact that he's apparently close to being able to hit against live pitching is a positive sign, Rodgers remains further behind in his throwing program. Per Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post, Rodgers has advanced to throwing long toss from 120 feet, but he'll need more time to build up his arm before he's cleared to throw at maximum velocity in the infield. As a result, the Rockies don't anticipate that he'll be ready to take part in game action at the big-league level until May at the soonest.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Slightly behind schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers is slightly behind schedule in his recovery from July shoulder surgery, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

The news contrasts with reports from early in the offseason, when Rodgers said that he was ahead of schedule. It remains to be seen exactly when he'll be back on the field, though it may make sense for him to open the year at the Triple-A level as he works his way back from his long absence, as he struggled to a .224/.272/.250 line in his 25-game debut last season. Per Thomas Harding of MLB.com, Rodgers isn't expected to return to the majors until May.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Ahead of schedule in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers said Saturday that he's progressing well from June surgery to repair the labrum in his right shoulder, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. "A couple of months ago, I couldn't even feel my arm and now I'm back to pretty much full activity, other than throwing and hitting a baseball," Rodgers said. "Those are things that are going to come. It's a crazy surgery, so you just have to be smart with it."

The 23-year-old indicated that he expects to resume throwing and hitting in about a month, putting him "a couple steps ahead" of where he expected when he required the season-ending procedure. With Rodgers tracking toward being 100 percent for spring training, he should get the chance to contend for the everyday role at second base. Given that he batted only .224/.272/.250 in 81 plate appearances in the majors before getting hurt, however, Rodgers is more likely to open 2020 at Triple-A Albuquerque.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Shifted to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

This move is simply procedural, as Rodgers has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery to address a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Harrison Musgrave (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move and optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Out for season after surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers (shoulder) announced via Instagram on Tuesday that he underwent surgery and is out for the season, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Rodgers landed on the injured list in late June with a right shoulder impingement after dealing with some discomfort over the previous few days. The 22-year-old was pictured in a hospital bed with his right arm in a heavy brace/sling and finished the post by saying, "See you in 2020." According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, Rodgers underwent surgery to address a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right shoulder impingement, retroactive to June 24.

According to Kyle Newman of The Denver Post, the highly-touted rookie said he first felt the shoulder discomfort after a throw to first base in Colorado's game against the Dodgers on Saturday, and it's been impacting his ability to get the proper backspin on his throws, so he'll head to the 10-day IL to recover. Ryan McMahon will continue on at second base, while Trevor Story (thumb) could be back this weekend.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers is not in Monday's lineup against the Giants, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Rodgers has started three straight games at shortstop with Trevor Story (thumb) on the injured list, going 0-for-10 with five strikeouts during that stretch. Pat Valaika is starting at shortstop in this one.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

Trevor Story (thumb) was sent to the injured list Thursday, allowing Rodgers to rejoin the Rockies just five days after being optioned back to the minors. The 22-year-old Rodgers appeared in 21 games during his first stint with the big club, slashing .246/.300/.277 with seven RBI and a 31.4 percent strikeout rate. Rodgers will likely fill in for the injured Story, though Pat Valaika is starting at shortstop Thursday.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

The highly-rated prospect didn't exactly impress in his first taste of big-league action, hitting .246/.300/.277 and striking out 31.4 percent of the time over 70 plate appearances. His opportunities to start were dwindling, as he'd started just twice in the last six games, so he'll head back to the minors in search of regular playing time. Jesus Tinoco was recalled in a corresponding move.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

Rodgers heads to the bench after three consecutive starts. Since two of those starts came against left-handed pitchers, it's probably too early to conclude that he's usurped Ryan McMahon as the team's primary option at second base. McMahon has been occupying the larger side of a platoon at the position, and Rodgers' pedestrian .581 OPS since his promotion from Triple-A Albuquerque hasn't helped the rookie's case for eating into McMahon's role.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Sits again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers remains on the bench Friday against Toronto.

Rodgers sits for the second game in a row and the third time in four games. The 22-year-old's .303/.361/.364 slash line translates to just an 82 wRC+ when factoring in the Coors Field effect. Ryan McMahon and his .260/.356/.449 line (99 wRC+) will remain in the lineup at second base.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Benched for second time in series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

The rookie will head to the bench for the second time in the series and for the third time in six games. Though he appears to rank ahead of Ryan McMahon in the pecking order at second base, the Rockies' reluctance to commit to Rodgers in a full-time role is undoubtedly annoying for fantasy managers who scooped him up off the waiver wire. It's especially frustrating given that Rodgers has gotten off to a 10-for-32 (.313 average) start to his MLB career.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Rodgers has reached base safely in six of his first eight games in the big leagues this season, but he's set for a breather. Ryan McMahon draws the start at the keystone and will bat sixth in Rodgers' absence.

May 26, 2019 12:40 AM
Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers will head to the bench Saturday against the Orioles.

Rodgers has started five of eight games since joining the big-league roster and has gone 7-for-21 with a double. Ryan McMahon will start at the keystone in his absence.

Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Three-hit day in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodgers went 3-for-5 with a double, a run and an RBI in the Rockies' 9-3 win over the Pirates on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old flashed some of the ability that made him the club's top offensive prospect, lacing three hits including his first career two-bagger. He now has four hits in his first 13 at-bats with a pair of RBI through his first three games at the big-league level.
