Brendan Rodgers, the consensus top prospect of the Colorado Rockies, has been promoted from Double-A Hartford to Triple-A Albuquerque, according to a Rockies official.
Rodgers, 21, was producing to the tune of a .275/.342/.493 slash for the Yard Goats in 2018, with 17 home runs and 62 runs batted in through 95 games. He was selected as a middle infielder by the Rockies with the third overall pick of the 2015 June Amateur Draft out of Lake Mary High School in Florida.
In their recent update, MLB.com ranked Rodgers at the game’s 6th-best prospect, while ESPN’s Keith Law placed him at 29th in his pre-season rankings. Baseball America considers Rodgers the 22nd best-prospect in baseball. Rodgers was a mid-season All Star for Class-A Asheville in 2016, Class-A Advanced Lancaster in 2017, and Double-A Hartford in 2018. This season also marked the second straight year in which Rodgers was a participant in the Futures Game.
