Rockies top prospect Brendan Rodgers is bidding for a promotion

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Brendan Rodgers (no. 1 PuRP) continued to punish the baseball by hitting his tenth home run of the season on Tuesday, a two-run shot that broke a 3-3 tie and propelled the Yard Goats to victory. Rodgers has hit in nine of his last ten games — including five doubles, four home runs, and fifteen RBI — and with Garrett Hampson receiving a recent promotion to Triple-A, you have to wonder if Brendan is not far behind.

Speaking of Garrett, he recorded his first two stolen bases with Albuquerque and displayed more patience at the plate by drawing two walks. He now has 26 walks to only 22 strikeouts this season, and is proving to be a major asset in the leadoff position. In the same game, Tom Murphy hit an RBI triple and Mike Tauchman picked up two more hits, raising his minor league average to an eye-popping .391 through 106 AB’s.
