Rogers (2-5) took the loss Friday as the Marlins were downed 5-3 by Atlanta, coughing up five runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over four innings. He struck out five. The southpaw served up homers in each of the first three innings before finally getting the hook after 88 pitches (54 strikes). Rogers has not been able to duplicate his 2021 breakout, and his numbers are getting worse, not better. He's been tagged for six homers in 18.2 innings over his last four starts, matching his total through 133 innings all of last year. Rogers will carry a 5.20 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and mediocre 34:15 K:BB through 36.1 innings on the season into his next outing.
Rogers (2-4) gave up one run on five hits and zero walks while striking out eight in 5.1 innings Saturday against the Brewers. He picked up the win. Rogers' slider was the story in this one, as he got a career-high eight total whiffs on 15 swings against the pitch. This was the second start in a row where he threw his slider more than his changeup, which used to be his best pitch but has been more hittable this season. This was his first start without walking a batter since his last start of 2021. He lines up to face Atlanta at home next weekend.
Rogers struck out three and allowed five hits and two walks in five scoreless innings in a 3-2 loss Sunday in San Diego. He did not factor into the decision. Rogers wasn't exactly efficient in the outing, needing 93 pitches to complete five frames, but he held the Padres scoreless nonetheless. After a stellar rookie campaign, the 24-year-old has been inconsistent in the early going this season, pitching well in four starts and poorly in the other two. As a whole, his 5.00 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 21:13 K: BB ratio are causes for concern and significantly worse than his rates last year. He will likely make his next start next weekend against Milwaukee.
Rogers (1-5) was charged with the loss Tuesday against the Diamondbacks after giving up five runs on six hits with four strikeouts and two walks over 4.1 innings. Rogers allowed only a pair of solo homers across the first four frames, but Arizona struck for three runs in the fifth to end his evening. The left-hander surrendered only one earned run in 11 innings over his previous two starts, and he was unable to hold down a Diamondbacks team which ranks last in MLB in batting average (.185). Rogers has a 6.14 ERA and 18:11 K:BB through five starts this season and next projects to take the mound Sunday in San Diego.
Rogers (1-3) allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out four across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Nationals. Rogers allowed a run in the opening frame, which was mostly produced by a wild pitch and passed ball. However, he settled in quickly and did not allow a hit across his final five innings of work -- highlighted by eight groundball outs. Rogers has now allowed two or fewer earned runs in three of his four outings to begin the season, which amounts to a 5.09 ERA and a 14:9 K:BB across 17.2 frames.
