Rodgers was nominated alongside Rockies’ third baseman Ryan McMahon, who lost out to former Rockie Nolan Arenado en route to his 10th straight Gold Glove at the hot corner.
Rodgers was the third overall pick in the 2015 MLB Draft and had a breakout year in 2022, solidifying himself as a solid pro starter.
