7/16: Rodgers has shoulder surgery

When Rodgers was coming out of the Florida high school ranks as the top-rated prospect in the 2015 Draft, he was seen as a prep shortstop who could drive the ball better than any high schooler at that position since Carlos Correa in 2012. Taken No. 3 overall and signed for a franchise-record bonus of $5.5 million, he's lived up to that billing by hitting pretty much everywhere he's been, going to the Futures Game twice and reaching Triple-A just before his 22nd birthday. He made his big league debut in 2019, only to have a torn labrum that required surgery end his season in July.

Rodgers has displayed premium bat speed from the outset of his career, with the ability to hit for average and power. He barrels balls up consistently and can drive the ball to all fields, with plenty of over-the-fence power now, and with more to come. He doesn't walk a ton, and can get a little pull-happy at times, but he did improve his walk rate and lower his strikeout rate in Double-A in 2018.

The Rockies love having their infielders learn multiple positions while developing in the Minors, and Rodgers has proven to be quite adept at it. While not overly quick, his arm, hands and instincts would allow him to stick at shortstop long term and the Rockies believe he's above-average at second and third as well. A shoulder issue kept Rodgers from going to the Arizona Fall League, but he should be healthy and ready to contribute at some point in 2019.
