The Rockies top prospect will be out of action for a little while. After being pulled from Sunday’s game early, Brendan Rodgers was placed on the 7-day disabled list yesterday with a quad strain, according to MLBPipeline. The move was retroactive to Tuesday which means he could be eligible to return early next week. However, since muscle strains can be tricky there is no guarantee that that will be the case.
Rodgers was pulled from Sunday’s game after hitting a double in the first inning. The double raised his season line for the Hartford Yard Goats to .273/.333/.434. His batting line had been steadily rising after a slow start in Double-A as he adjusted to the new difficulty. Unfortunately, we will now have to wait a little while to see that development continue.
This will be Rodgers second stint on a minor-league disabled list this year after he began the year on Lancaster’s DL with a minor hand injury and missed the first few weeks of the season. Upon returning from the DL, he destroyed High-A to the tune of .400/.419/.700 before being promoted to Double-A. Hopefully, this injury will be similarly minor and his return will be just as dynamic.
