The Lancaster JetHawks (High-A) placed Colorado Rockies' top prospect shortstop Brendan Rodgers on the 7-day disabled list over the weekend. He reportedly has a 'minor' hand injury and will be sidelined for the neat future.

Rodgers is the Rockies clear cut No.1 prospect as he earned top overall prospect status on every major prospect list this past offseason. Drafted third overall in 2015 by Colorado out of hugh school he has struggled with the durability over the longer pro seasons. Rodgers will be eligible to make his California League debut on Friday.

In 2016 at Single-A Asheville Rodgers slashed .281/.342/.480 with 19 home runs in 110 games played.
