RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Wes Rogers.
Rogers is a speedster, though he's not exactly the size of a prototypical leadoff hitter (6-foot-3, 180 pounds). However, power has not yet shown up as a big part of his game. He is known mostly for his base-stealing abilities, as he swiped 43 bags this past year, giving him 96 over the past two seasons, while being caught just 13 times over that stretch (88 percent success rate). He improved his walk rate from 9.0 percent to 10.1 percent while cutting his strikeout rate from 19 percent to 17.6 percent in 2016. He will begin the 2017 season at Double-A Hartford looking to make more hard contact, as his ISO has been below .120 in each of the past two seasons. A fourth-round pick out of Spartanburg Methodist College in 2014, Rogers must prove he can hit for average at the higher levels in order to become a part of the Rockies' future plans. Colorado also happens to be flush with outfielders ahead of him on the organizational depth chart right now.
There are certainly aspects of this lanky 6-foot-4 outfielder’s profile that might scare prospective dynasty league owners away. He will be 22 when he first reaches High-A this season, and has just six home runs in 489 career plate appearances in the lower levels. However, he also has 68 steals in 117 games while never hitting below .273 or striking out at more than a 19.1 percent clip. Last year he slashed .273/.358/.392 with three home runs and 46 steals on a 92 percent success rate while striking out just 61 times in 321 plate appearances. In the batter’s box his build and loopy swing resemble that of a right-handed Gregory Polanco, and his game is also similar to Polanco’s, with a bit more speed, and slightly less power potential. Rogers should continue to post impressive numbers at High-A Modesto, and his tools could allow him to be one of the big risers up prospect lists in 2016.
