RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
