Hitting seventh for the Colorado Rockies, second baseman Brendan Rodgers
Like Ryan McMahon, Colorado Rockies infielder Brendan Rodgers can be a great offensive threat.
When healthy and when given a chance to play for the Rockies in 2021, Rodgers flourished.
Overall, he hit 15 homers and had 51 RBI with a slash line of .284/.328/.470 in 102 games but from July 26 on (55 games), he hit .299/.326/.502 with 10 home runs and 31 RBI. If he had that for a full, 162-game season, he would have had 29 home runs and 91 RBI.
That’s not bad at all for a seventh-place hitter.
Hitting eighth for the Colorado Rockies, catcher Elias Díaz
Elias Díaz hit .246/.310/.464 with 18 home runs and 44 RBI in 2021 in a season that was the best offensive season for a Rockies catcher in a long time.
But from June 25 on (67 games, 55 starts), he hit .297/.356/.589 with 16 homers and 36 RBI. That pace for 162 games is 39 homers and 87 RBI. He wouldn’t be playing 162 games but if the Rockies could get 20 homers and 60 RBI from their catcher hitting eighth, their dream lineup would be phenomenal.
