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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Rodgers is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
This is classic Rockies, but Ryan McMahon did make a strong case for another start with two homers Sunday. The 22-year-old Rodgers went 1-for-8 with four strikeouts in his first two big-league games before these back-to-back absences. It remains to be seen how exactly the playing-time split at second base will shake out.
Rodgers is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Philadelphia, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Rodgers was relatively quiet during his first two games in the majors as he went 1-for-8 with four strikeouts and one RBI. Ryan McMahon will start at second base and bat seventh in the series finale.
Rodgers was officially called up from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, and will start at second base and bat seventh versus the Phillies, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
There was some thought Rodgers was being called up due to Trevor Story (knee) exiting Wednesday's game, but Story is starting at shortstop Friday while Rodgers remains at second base. The 22-year-old is the organization's top prospect and had an impressive start to the season with the Isotopes, slashing .356/.421/.644 with nine home runs in 35 games.
The Rockies intend to call up Rodgers from Triple-A Albuquerque prior to Friday's series opener with the Phillies, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Rodgers becomes the latest in a stream of highly touted prospects to get the call to the majors this week, with his impending promotion coming on the heels of Trevor Story exiting Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox with what the shortstop classified as a bone bruise on his left knee. While Story said that he expects to rejoin the lineup this weekend, the Rockies' decision to bring Rodgers aboard suggests the organization may not view Story's situation as optimistically. Even if Story avoids a trip to the 10-day injured list, Rodgers is likely still worthy of a speculative pickup, given that he could also be viewed as an option to displace Ryan McMahon as the Rockies' everyday second baseman. After a slow start to the season at Albuquerque, Rodgers has caught fire over the past month with a 1.152 OPS and 18 extra-base hits (including eight home runs) dating back to April 11. Perhaps more notably, Rodgers has shown significantly improved plate discipline with a 9.4 percent walk rate and a 16.4 percent strikeout rate this season, his best marks in both categories since he played at the High-A level in 2017. Though his initial MLB action will come on the road, Rodgers' potential to see regular action at Coors Field could help him become a plus source of both power and batting average.
Rodgers went 4-for-5 with a pair of homers, two RBI and three runs for Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.
The Rockies were dealt a scare Saturday when their top prospect was hit in the helmet by a pitch, but he seems to be just fine after exploding Monday for this two-homer performance. Rodgers has been absolutely mashing Triple-A pitching this season, as this brings his slash line to .346/.415/.638 with nine homers and 20 RBI in 147 plate appearances. With numbers like that, Colorado will have a hard time leaving him in the minors much longer.
Rodgers is slashing .339/.409/.603 with seven homers and 18 RBI for Triple-A Albuquerque through 121 at-bats.
Rodgers is the most highly rated prospect in the Rockies' system and he's been mashing Triple-A pitching so far this season. The duo of Ryan McMahon and Garrett Hampson has struggled to produce offensively at second base to this point for Colorado, so it could only be a matter of time before the club feels compelled to give the 22-year-old Rodgers a look at the big-league level. If they do, Hampson is a candidate to get optioned back to Albuquerque, as he's slashing just .186/.211/.267 over 86 at-bats.
The Rockies reassigned Rodgers to their minor-league camp Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Rodgers appears on track to debut with the Rockies at some point in 2019, but cracking the Opening Day roster was always an unlikely outcome. With Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado locked in long term on the left side of the infield, Rodgers should see most of his action at second base at Triple-A Albuquerque this season in preparation for an eventual move to the big leagues. The Rockies will first see if either Garrett Hampson or Ryan McMahon can be a viable option at second base before potentially giving Rodgers a look.
Rodgers went 1-for-2 with two RBI in Thursday's game against the Dodgers.
Rodgers drove in a run during the first inning on a sacrifice double play, and he plated another in the third on an RBI single to left field. He's 2-for-11 with three RBI and two runs scored so far this spring as he continues to compete for a job at second base.
