Jason Rogers: Released by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was released by the Pirates on Friday.

Rogers requested the release so he could sign with a professional team in Japan, but leaves after two relatively productive seasons with Triple-A Indianapolis. Despite his .289 batting average and nine home runs this season, the 29-year-old was mainly bound to serve as organizational depth behind rising first baseman Josh Bell, catalyzing his request for a release. Rogers went 2-for-25 with nine strikeouts for the Pirates last year, his last appearance in the majors.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Back in spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers is 1-for-4 across three spring games since returning from an ankle injury.

It appears Rogers is feeling better, as the 29-year-old has now played in three straight games after missing the majority of March with an ankle injury. He's expected to start the year at Triple-A Indianapolis, and given Pittsburgh's depth ahead of him at first base, it will be difficult for Rogers to earn big league playing time this season.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Cleared for all activities but running
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers (ankle) has been cleared for all baseball activities except running, Stephen Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Good news on the rehab front regarding Rogers, who is expected to begin the season at Triple-A Indianapolis. The first baseman will face an uphill challenge to see major league playing time this season, as the Pirates boast solid depth at the position.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: In walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers has right ankle discomfort after injuring his foot before Wednesday's game, BIll Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. He is currently in a walking boot and will be re-evaluated in a week.

The Triple-A Indianapolis asset is around camp as depth, but is trying to prove he should at least be on the shuttle to the majors this year. Rogers will probably miss at least a few days in his quest to do so.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was designated for assignment Friday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

The Pirates will give Rogers' spot on the 40-man roster to Nefi Ogando, who was claimed off waivers Friday. Rogers struggled in his brief stint with the Pirates in 2016, collecting just two hits with nine strikeouts in 25 at-bats. He'll now be subject to waivers and could land with a team looking to add organizational depth at either corner infield spot.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

Rogers has predominantly seen time at third base at Triple-A this season, but he has also started games at first base and left field. That defensive versatility, if it even qualifies as such given the fact he doesn't play any up-the-middle positions, is about all he can hang his hat on. Rogers is slashing .263/.338/.371 with six homers in 420 plate appearances at Triple-A this year. He has a solid approach and makes good contact (18.6 percent K-rate), but he is pretty uninteresting in fantasy.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday.

Rogers saw just one pinch-hit opportunity in his short stint with the Pirates, striking out in Saturday's contest against the Cubs. He'll now return to the minors, opening up a spot on the 25-man roster for the Pirates' recall of catcher Jacob Stallings.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Bill Brink reports.

He has a .286/.346/.429 slash line with four home runs in 45 games for Indianapolis and has been particularly devastating against lefties (.339/.414/.484). To that end, he will likely get some starts at first base against southpaws along with some pinch-hit opportunities when a lefty is pitching, limiting his value to daily leagues.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Optioned to Triple-A on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Rogers was first called up on April 22, but he's been a putrid 1-for-13 with six strikeouts since then, so he'll head back to the minors for more regular playing time. The move hasn't been officially announced yet, so there is currently no corresponding move, but there is some speculation that Rogers' demotion could mean that Jung Ho Kang (knee) is close to returning to the Pirates.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Gets Sunday starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers will start at first base and bat fifth Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

GM Neal Huntington said Sunday that Rogers "commands the zone and can drive the ball." Rogers went 0-for-2 with a walk in his season debut Friday and has never faced starter Robbie Ray.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Pittsburgh debut on tap Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers will make his debut for the Pirates on Friday, batting sixth and starting at first base.

Rogers currently has no path to steady playing time, but the infielder has hit well in the majors. In 2015, he compiled a line of .296/.367/.441 in 169 plate appearances for Milwaukee. At the time of his recall, Rogers was batting .366 in 41 at-bats for Triple-A Indianapolis.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Rogers was one of the final cuts by the Pirates at the end of spring training but will now rejoin the team after they optioned Cole Figueroa to Triple-A. Last season, the 28-year-old posted a .296/.367/.441 batting line with four home runs and 16 RBI over 86 games with the Brewers.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Rogers was one of the last roster cuts for the Pirates in spring training, as the team elected to keep Cole Figueroa for the remaining bench spot. The 28-year-old Rogers figures to hold down a full-time role in the minors, but his ability to play either corner spot could earn him an early-season call-up if injuries mount at either position.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: In running for bench spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers is still in the running for the team's final bench spot, along with Pedro Florimon and Cole Figueroa, Adam Berry of the team's official website reports.

Rogers seemed to grow more comfortable throughout spring training and even saw a decent amount of playing time at first base late in camp. He's a career .290 hitter with an .838 OPS in the minor leagues. Since Sean Rodriguez is the only other backup middle infielder on the roster, it's likely the team goes with Florimon or Figueroa over Rogers, but Rogers could prove to be a sneaky midseason pickup in fantasy leagues.

Pirates' Jason Rogers: Opportunity knocked out?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The addition of David Freese lessens the chance Rogers makes Pittsburgh's Opening Day roster, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Pirates GM Neal Huntington said Freese will "bounce around the field for us." Rogers is batting .200 in 20 spring at-bats and has looked slow running the bases. The nearly 28-year-old holds a .290/.372/.466 line in the minors, but he's running out of time.

December 17, 2015 09:14 PM
Pirates' Jason Rogers: Dealt to Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was traded from the Brewers to the Pirates on Thursday.

Rogers finally got an opportunity at some consistent playing time in 2015, and responded by posting a solid .296/.367/.441 batting line with four home runs and 16 RBI over 86 games with the Brewers. He now joins a Pirates club with no clear-cut first baseman, and could battle with Mike Morse for everyday duties at the position in a much more potent Pittsburgh lineup.

With lefty on the mound, Brewers 1B Adam Lind take a seat Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brewers first baseman Adam Lind is not in the lineup Friday against the Reds.

With the left-handed Brandon Finnegan set to take the hill for the Reds, Lind will take a seat Friday. Jason Rogers will continue to see starts at first base in his stead against southpaws, batting fifth.

Jason Rogers hits home run for Brewers in win
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Brewers first baseman Jason Rogers hit a solo home run to start the scoring in the second inning of Tuesday's win over Pittsburgh. 

Rogers went 2 for 4 and drove in two runs on the day. He now has two home runs and six RBI.

Brewers go with Gerardo Parra in left field against Diamondbacks
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The Brewers are starting Gerardo Parra in left field for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. 

Parra will likely be the starter in left field for a while with Khris Davis going on the disabled list due to a torn meniscus. At first base, Jason Rogers will start as Adam Lind deals with an ailing back. 

Elian Herrera is starting at third base with Luis Sardinas at second.

Jason Rogers gets pinch-hit RBI double for Brewers
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Jason Rogers entered Saturday's game for the Brewers as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning and produced the team's only extra base hit of the day. 

Rogers had a pinch-hit RBI double, to knock in the team's third run of the day in a loss to Arizona. 

Rogers now has three doubles and four RBI on the year.
