Rodgers combines immense natural ability (especially defensively) with a great feel for the game, translating to high level usable tools. He ran 6.84 in the 60 yard dash on a slightly soft and slow track. He was a standout in the infield, both during the workout and game. He moved with fluidity and ease, while covering ground quickly and efficiently to the ball. He maintained excellent body control allowing him to adjust to odd hops, and got his glove out front and played the ball with soft and sure hands. His actions were clean and fluid, he made plays look easy consistently. His arm stroke was compact mostly, but he showed the ability to vary it as needed to make multiple throws. At the plate, he featured a simple hitting approach with quick hands and excellent barrel accuracy. His move to contact was short, and he worked the barrel through the zone with ease. In game at bats, he showed a knack for getting the barrel to contact, has excellent hand-eye coordination to work with. He showed great instincts on the bases as well, made a great read on a ball in the dirt to easily advance a base. Overall, an extremely talented player with five usable tools.
