Player Note: Mark Rogers, RHP, Milwaukee Brewers

Mark Rogers - Mike McGinnis

Mark Rogers, RHP, Milwaukee Brewers
Bats: R Throws: R HT: 6-2 WT: 205 DOB: January 30, 1986

With 49 career innings pitched in the majors, Rogers is one inning short of losing rookie qualification. I generally use 50 innings for starters and 30 innings for relievers as the cut-off for eligibility, not worrying much about service time considerations except in extreme cases. In any event, Rogers last year showed (again) what he can do when he's healthy: throw a 92-97 MPH fastball, a hard slider, a softer curve, and a rare (but effective) changeup. Command issues are still present, and of course every time he takes the mound there is a chance his shoulder will shred or his elbow blow up or a piano fall on his head. At age 27 he has nothing left to prove in the minors, so it all comes down to a bet on his health. He has the stuff to be a number two starter if his arm lets him. Grade C+.
