Being at Arizona State almost hurts Rodgers because it's easy for scouts to compare him to another former Sun Devil and say, "Well, he's not Mike Leake." While Leake does have better stuff and athleticism, Rodgers still has plenty to offer. Like Leake, Rodgers is a bit undersized, and his stuff plays up because of his varied arsenal and pinpoint command. He fills up the strike zone with an 88-92 mph fastball and adds three solid secondary pitches: a curveball, slider and changeup. His slider is the best of the three and might be a tick above-average, but his command is better than his pure stuff. Scouts see Rodgers as a back-of-the-rotation starter and worry that his slender, 6-foot-2, 198-pound frame may not be able to withstand the grind of 180 innings and that over a full season his fastball might be below-average at times.
