    Esmil Rogers: Signs one-year contract with Korean team

    Esmil Rogers signed a one -year, $1.9 million guaranteed contract with the Hanwha Eagles of the Korean Baseball Organization.It was expected that Rogers would follow former Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario to the KBO, and he did so for a much bigger paycheck than he would've received in the United States for his services. The 30-year-old had a 6.27 ERA out of the Yankee bullpen last season, but he'll try to boost his stock in Korea and possibly garner higher demand in the U.S. in the future.

    Yankees skipper on RP Esmil Rogers: 'I believe the stuff is there'

    New York Yankees reliever Esmil Rogers had a rough outing on Friday against the Angels. Rogers entered the contest in the top of the ninth, with the Yankees leading 8-1.  But, he was unable to retire a batter, allowing five runs on four hits and a walk before getting the hook. The Yankees were able to hang on for the 8-7 win.  Despite the nightmare outing, manager Joe Girardi is supporting his 29-year-old right-hander. "I believe the stuff is there," Girardi said Saturday, per the Star-Ledger. "We've seen it. He gets swings and misses, and he can get quick outs, and he has a good fastball, and a good curveball. But his stuff has been inconsistent, and part of that could be not working on a normal basis sometimes as a long man. But you've got to figure out a way to do that and be ready to pitch when you're called upon." The poor performance on Friday lifted Rogers' ERA from 4.94 to 6.39, though he has struck 8.4 batters per-nine innings this season.

    Yankees could go with six-man rotation for a while

    The New York Yankees begin a stretch on Friday of 30 games in 31 days, so manager Joe Girardi said the team is considering adding a sixth starter to the rotation, reports"I wouldn't really call it a six-man rotation. I'd call it more of inserting a sixth man one time through, and my guess is you might see it," Girardi said. "Weather could play a role, so you just have to wait and see, but it's something that's in the back of our minds. We've kind of prepared ourselves for it."Pitchers New York Yankees , Esmil Rogers and Chase Whitley are among the candidates to fill the potentional sixth-man spot.

    Yankees' Esmil Rogers allows three runs in rotation bid Thursday

    New York Yankees pitcher Esmil Rogers surrendered three earned runs on five hits and one walk in 3 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 7-3 loss to the Phillies Thursday. "I know I (allowed) a couple of base hits; I got a homer," Rogers said after the outing, per The Journal News. "I just try to pound the zone. That’s one of the keys I got in this spring training. Today I came in a couple of times behind in the count, and I’ve got to pay for that." Manager Joe Girardi indicated Wednesday that the race for the team's final rotation spot would reach another gear this time through the spring rotation. He spoke about the merits of Rogers Thursday. "Well, he’s got a good arm," Girardi said. "He’s got four pitches that he can go to, so he’s got a couple of different breaking balls and a changeup, so it allows him to get right handers and left handers out. Larry (Rothschild)’s tried to make subtle changes to come of his mechanics to give him more consistency. It’s there, it just comes down to consistently making pitches. This was a position player who made a change, so sometimes those guys bloom a little later."

"He's throwing the ball really well," Girardi said.

    Yankees eye Esmil Rogers in role of long reliever/spot starter

    New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Thursday he would like Esmil Rogers to fill the role David Phelps had in 2014 as a long reliever and spot starter, per ESPN. "We think he’s got good stuff," Girardi said. "It’s learning how to use it and become more consistent. He’s got velocity, he’s got a good breaking ball, he's got a changeup. He has the ability to pitch. We feel he can do a lot of different things. He gives us a lot of flexibility, which is good. We like having that on our pitching staff, because you never know when something’s going to pop up."
