2019 FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: BRENDAN RODGERS 2B/SS COLORADO ROCKIES

Another day and another top prospect has arrived in the majors.  Following closely on the heels of the Milwaukee Brewers promoting top second base farmhand Keston Hiura, the Colorado Rockies on Thursday made it official their calling up of second base/shortstop Brendan Rodgers from Triple-A.  The former third overall pick in the 2015 MLB draft, Rodgers was hitting .356 with 9 home runs in 152 at-bats at that level and he clearly has the look of a player who no longer is challenged by minor league pitching.  With just a 16.4 K/9 and very solid 9.2 BB/9 as well, Rodgers is checking all of the boxes in terms of his development as a hitter and so now let's see where this goes.  Already on top prospect lists prior to each of the last two seasons, Rodgers in the friendly hitting confines of Coors Field will likely be worth checking out.  The power is obvious here and again the atmosphere in his new home will likely further assist his work in that category.  Even more noteworthy is that Rodgers has really come a long way this season with his pure hitting as he came off a .232 average at Triple-A last season which followed a .275 stint at Double-A.  Rodgers also chipped in a total of 12 steals during those two stops last season which means he has something to offer in that category as well.  Whether this will all translate right away to useful fantasy baseball numbers in 2019 is not known just yet but Rodgers should be scooped up where available.
