An Auburn signee, Rodgers had an up-and-down spring in terms of his velocity, and scouts who saw him with his best velocity like the 6-foot, 185-pound southpaw in the first three or four rounds. Rodgers' calling card last summer on the showcase circuit was his sharp breaking ball. At its best, it's a plus curveball thrown with some power in the 75-78 mph range. At times this spring Rodgers wore down and got on the side of his breaking ball, causing it to be a bit slurvier and less enticing for scouts. His fastball velocity usually resides in the 88-91 mph range, but at times Rodgers will pitch at 90 and touch 93, and he'll throw a lot of strikes with his two best pitches. Rodgers' changeup requires projection but he shows enough feel for pitching to get scouts thinking he can remain a starter.
