Brendan Rodgers’ hit his first home run of the season last night, one of his four hits in a Lancaster victory.

The Rockies top prospect spent the majority of the first month of the season nursing an injury, but the shortstop has started to make up for lost time with a blistering start to the 2017 season.

The four hit night on Sunday lifted him to a .352 average on the season. Since his return, Rodgers has gotten a hit in 10 of his 13 games, knocking in nine runs and slapping six extra base hits. The former first round pick’s hot start has upped his already sky level prospect stock. The shortstop’s continued production could see him in Denver sooner rather than later.

It was a clean sweep for the Rockies last night as all of the affiliates and the parent team won last night.
