Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Headed to alternate camp
Rodgers was optioned to the Rockies' alternate training site Wednesday.Rodgers was expected to make the Rockies' major-league roster to begin the season, but he'll instead head to alternate camp ahead of Opening Day on Friday. The 23-year-old completed his rehab from the shoulder surgery that he underwent last June and should be the Rockies' top option to fill in if middle infield help is needed. The highly-rated prospect's major-league debut last year didn't go as planned as he hit .224/.272/.250 with seven RBI and 27 strikeouts over 25 games before his season was cut short with a torn labrum.
Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Set for reserve role
Rodgers is expected to be begin the season on the major-league roster and should see occasional starts at second base, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.The 23-year-old availability for original Opening Day was in doubt as he continued his recovery from shoulder surgery last June, but he completed his rehab and will be available for the start of the shortened season. The starting jobs in the middle infield are locked up by Trevor Story and Ryan McMahon, but Rodgers could still see some starts at second base when McMahon covers first base in place of Daniel Murphy. However, Garrett Hampson and Chris Owings will also be competing for those opportunities.
