2017

Rodgers tied for fifth across all of Low-A and was second among teenagers at the level with 19 home runs. Believed to have an above-average hit tool and plus power when he was selected third overall in the 2015 draft, Rodgers has lived up to his billing so far as a professional, but it is worth noting that he took great advantage of the hitter-friendly home park in Asheville. Rodgers slashed .318/.376/.597 with 13 home runs in 51 home games and .247/.310/.372 with six home runs in 59 road contests. Also of note: Rodgers started 24 games at second base, something that rarely happens at Low-A with high-end prospects who are going to stick at shortstop. The Rockies' affiliates above Low-A are also extremely hitter-friendly, as is Coors Field, so his numbers could be environmentally bolstered for the foreseeable future. Additionally, shortstop is no longer the wasteland it was a couple years ago, so for fantasy purposes, it is not a huge deal if Rodgers ends up at the keystone.

2016

The No. 3 overall pick in last year’s draft handled his first professional assignment well, slashing .273/.340/.420 with three home runs and four steals (on seven attempts) in 37 games in the Pioneer League. He will undoubtedly be compared to the first overall pick, Dansby Swanson, as the two shortstops rise through the minor league ranks, in part because they have somewhat contrasting profiles. Swanson was the safe option out of college, while Rodgers was the high upside prep shortstop teams could dream on. Dynasty league owners will be faced with the same predicament this offseason. Rodgers has more upside in the power department, thanks to a quick bat and loft-generating swing, and it is easy to get excited about him calling Coors Field home someday. Rodgers’ 37:15 K:BB was quite palatable, so batting average should not be a major concern, although Swanson probably has the edge there. The one knock on Rodgers is that he is probably four years away from the big leagues.
