While watching Rodgers go to work over the course of the entire 2011 season, he was almost flawless and picked apart opposing defenses with ease.
He spent plenty of time in the offseason taking batting practice from sausages, proving his skills to scouts, and pitching to his real life friend and Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun.
