The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Rodgers is a clockwork automaton made of mostly gears and various time-telling instruments. Records of the player's life before Blaseball, including their creation, have been lost to time.
Rodgers is known for bringing a small antique watch to each inning pitched. Due to a family curse, Rodgers may only throw a pitch when the second hand is touching the hour hand. If Rodgers attempts to throw a pitch when the second hand is elsewhere on the clock face, the pitch will float calmly to the middle of the plate, allowing the batter to get an easy base hit. How they became a pitcher with this unfortunate ailment is unknown.
It should be noted that Rodgers spends their time crafting watches, when they are not pitching. Despite Rodgers's best efforts, it would seem that the watches they create consistently turn out cursed. It is unclear if this watch-making hobby is related to their family curse or their creation.

One of Rodgers's most infamous creations is a tasteful analog watch in a chromed case with matching band. Over a white face with black lettering, delicate black hour and minute hands move counter-clockwise. In tiny slab font just above the 6 o'clock position are the words "Mortal Coil". There is no crown or other visible mechanism. While worn, the watch indicates the hours and minutes remaining in the wearer's life with the 12-o'clock position representing the fatal moment. However without any indication of days or years, one remains uncertain if their final moment is the next "midnight" or a thousand midnights hence. This has driven many a wearer, understandably, to great distraction and calamity. Its whereabouts are currently unknown.
