The time has come.
Infielder Brendan Rodgers, the Colorado Rockies top prospect, appears headed to the Major Leagues. The Rockies are promoting Rodgers, 22, from Triple-A Albuquerque in time for Friday's series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies.
In 35 games at Triple-A this season, Rodgers is hitting .356 (48-135) with nine home runs and 21 RBIs.
The Rockies selected Rodgers in the first round (third overall) of the 2015 draft out of Lake Mary High School in Lake Mary, Florida.
Before the 2019 season started, MLB Pipeline ranked Rodgers as the 10th best prospect in baseball.
The Rockies have also reinstated left =-handed relief pitcher Jake McGee from the injured list. They have optioned right-handed pitcher D J Johnson and infielder Pat Valaika to Triple-A.
