Colorado Rockies: Top 10 Prospect Update
MLB Pipeline’s top prospect in the 2015 draft, the Rockies were lucky to get Brendan Rodgers with the third-overall pick. As a kid straight out of high school Rodgers has been solid during his short pro career although he is frequently competing against older guys. As a 19-year-old Rodgers is currently playing in Low-A Asheville where he has launched 14 home runs with a .277 average in 90 games. Scouts compare Rodgers offensive game to that of Tulowitzki.

It is unclear if Rodgers will stay at shortstop or move over to second base at some point, but the bat will definitely play in the bigs. Rodgers best tool is his bat speed and easy stroke which generates a lot of power. At only 19, Rodgers doesn’t have much of a resume and projects to enter the big league picture at some point in 2018.
