  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Placed on 60-day IL

    Rogers (forearm) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Wednesday's move is simply procedural since the catcher is expected to miss most or all of the 2022 campaign after he underwent Tommy John surgery last September. He began a throwing program in early March, but it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to game action. Tucker Barnhart and Eric Haase are slated to begin the year as Detroit's top two catchers.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Starts throwing progression

    Rogers (forearm) announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he has began a throwing program.

    Due to MLB's ongoing lockout, Rogers is unable to take part in spring training, but the Tigers aren't counting on the 26-year-old to be ready to play until late in the season anyway -- if at all -- while he recovers from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last September. The fact that Rogers is playing catch again six months after surgery is a positive sign, but he'll still need to resume hitting in addition to increasing his throwing distance and velocity before he's even cleared to play in minor-league rehab games. With Rogers out of the mix for at least the next few months, the Tigers will turn to Tucker Barnhart and Eric Haase to handle catching duties.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    Rogers (forearm) underwent successful Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Manager A.J. Hinch indicated in late August that Rogers would likely miss the remainder of the season due to a right forearm strain, but it wasn't until Wednesday that it was revealed that the young backstop would require surgery. Rogers is now officially out for the remainder of the 2021 campaign, and he'll likely need most or all of the 2022 season to complete his rehab from the procedure. The 26-year-old appeared in 38 games prior to his injury and slashed .239/.306/.496 with six homers, 17 runs, 17 RBI and a stolen base.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Likely done for 2021

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Monday that Rogers (forearm) may not have time to return from the 60-day injured list before the end of the season, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Rogers has been out since mid-July with a strained right forearm. Reports from mid-August indicated that he was approximately a month away from returning, but he evidently hasn't progressed quite as quickly as the Tigers had hoped. The team is now less optimistic that he'll play again this season, though he's yet to be officially shut down.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Could return in mid-September

    Rogers (forearm) has a chance to return in mid-September, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Rogers will be eligible to return from the 60-day injured list Sept. 17, and it looks as though he may be healthy by that point. The Tigers hope he can begin a rehab assignment in approximately three weeks.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Tigers transferred Rogers (forearm) to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Recovering from a right forearm strain, Rogers will be eligible to return from the IL no sooner than Sept. 17. The catcher wasn't expected back until around that time, so the Tigers are able to free up a 40-man roster spot until he's healthy. More updates on Rogers and whether he'll play again in 2021 should become available as the season progresses into September.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Not yet throwing

    Rogers (forearm) hasn't resumed throwing and remains several weeks away from making a return to full health, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. "We won't see him in the month of August. September at the earliest," manager A.J. Hinch said. " \We just hope there are no setbacks at this point. If we do anything that causes a setback between now and September, then we're talking about missing the rest of the year."

    Sidelined since July 19 with a pronator teres strain in his right forearm, Rogers' promising campaign could be at risk of ending early if hits any snags in what's already been a slow-moving recovery process. Though the Tigers value Rogers mostly for his defensive work at catcher, he hit his stride at the plate in the month before landing on the 10-day injured list, slashing .296/.367/.611 over that stretch. Eric Haase and Grayson Greiner will continue to share the catching duties while Rogers remains on the shelf.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Out longer than expected

    Rogers (forearm) will need longer to recover than previously expected and will be shut down from baseball activities for the foreseeable future, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Rogers hit the injured list Monday with a pronator teres strain in his right forearm. Initial reports indicated he'd be out 2-to-3 weeks, but that timeline was apparently too optimistic. The Tigers do still hope he can return by the end of the season, but there's a chance his campaign is already done.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Likely out 2-to-3 weeks

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said after Monday's 14-0 win over the Rangers that Rogers will likely be out for 2-to-3 weeks after he was diagnosed with a pronator teres strain of his right forearm, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. "We hope it's going to be resolved in the next couple of weeks," Hinch said of Rogers' injury. "He's going to have a rest period here. ... Once we knew Jake was going to be down for a minimum 5-to-7 days, we made the decision to put him on the injured list. During the game, we got the update that it's probably going to be a few weeks, but hopefully not major."

    Rogers was in Detroit's initial lineup as the starting catcher for the series opener, but he was scratched shortly before the contest when his arm was "bugging him" during pregame warmups, according to Hinch. He was sent in for medical tests shortly thereafter, which revealed the forearm strain. Detroit called up Grayson Greiner to take Rogers' spot on the active roster, and the combination of Greiner and Eric Haase will split time behind the dish while Rogers is on the mend.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Shifts to injured list

    Rogers was scratched from Monday's starting nine with soreness in his right arm, and he'll now be out for at least the next 10 days. He doesn't have a timeline for his return since the severity of the issue remains unclear. Grayson Greiner was called up for catching depth while Eric Haase should take over as Detroit's top backstop.

    Rogers was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Rangers due to right arm soreness.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Goes deep in loss

    Rogers went 2-for-4 with a triple and a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

    Rogers is known more for his defensive ability at catcher, but he's held his own at the plate so far this season, as he now has five home runs and a .773 OPS through 31 games. He posted a .481 OPS in 35 games last year, so he's shown marked improvement offensively. Rogers should continue to see regular playing time behind the plate, though Eric Haase remains in the mix.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Hits fourth home run

    Rogers went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Monday's 13-5 loss to Cleveland.

    Rogers joined in on the slug fest Monday, as Detroit hit three home runs as a team and Cleveland launched two bombs. The Detroit catcher now has four home runs this season to go along with a .741 OPS. It's solid if not spectacular production, and as the team's best healthy defender behind the plate, he should remain in the lineup most days moving forward.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Starting first game Saturday

    Rogers is starting at catcher and batting eighth in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Astros.

    Rogers got a day off Thursday but will re-enter the lineup for Saturday's matinee after Friday's contest was rained out. The 26-year-old seems to have overtaken Eric Haase as the primary catcher in Detroit, as Rogers had started four straight games before his day off Thursday. Haase will occupy left field in the first game Saturday and could spell Rogers behind the plate later in the day.
