After suffering a hamstring injury in spring training, Brendan Rodgers is finally making his return to the Colorado Rockies roster.

The Rockies announced the move today, prior to the start of their three-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The move was expected as the team optioned Alan Trejo down to the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes after their game on Wednesday.

Rodgers has been with Albuquerque since May 14th, marking his first game action since the injury in March. In his five games with the Isotopes, Rodgers has hit well, going 7-15. He collected nine total bases, hit two doubles and drove in three runs on his rehab assignment.

Selected out of high school with the third overall pick in the 2015 draft, Rodgers made his major league debut in 2019 but has only accrued 97 career major league at bats to this point in his career. Although injuries have slowed the top prospect’s development over the past few seasons, there are still high expectations for Rodgers to become a prominent piece of the Rockies future.
