Rodgers (undisclosed) was released by the Astros on Thursday.
Rodgers was designated for assignment by Houston earlier in the week and it wasn't long before the team opted to release him. The 28-year-old was in the midst of a rehab assignment for an undisclosed injury, and it's unclear when he's expected to be healthy. Rodgers has a 3.83 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 35:18 K:BB in eight starts with Triple-A Round Rock this season.
Rodgers (undisclosed) was designated for assignment, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
He is in the midst of a rehab assignment from an undisclosed injury but has not pitched in two weeks, so perhaps he suffered a setback. The Astros needed to clear a 40-man roster spot after selecting Abraham Toro's contract from Triple-A.
Rodgers (undisclosed) has made three rehab appearances with the Astros' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate, covering 7.1 innings and giving up two runs while striking out eight.
Rodgers has been on Triple-A Round Rock's 7-day injured list since July 4 with the unspecified injury. The right-hander tossed only 16 pitches in his most recent appearance in the Gulf Coast League, suggesting the Astros may be preparing for him to fill a relief role once he rejoins Round Rock.
Triple-A Round Rock placed Rodgers on its 7-day injured list July 4 due to an unspecified injury.
With a 3.83 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 49.1 innings at Triple-A this season, Rodgers has been a solid if unspectacular member of the Round Rock rotation. While his numbers alone weren't making the case that he was deserving a promotion to Houston, a healthy Rodgers may have gotten a trial in the Astros rotation this week while the team continues to wait for Brad Peacock (shoulder) to return from the 10-day IL. Rodgers is without a clear timeline to return from Round Rock's IL, and his window for a potential callup might have already closed by the time he's back to full strength.
Rodgers was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Rodgers made just three appearances in his time in Houston, allowing nine runs in five innings. Cionel Perez will take his spot in the bullpen.
Rodgers was called up from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
Collin McHugh (elbow discomfort) landed on the injured list, so Rodgers was summoned to take his place in the bullpen. Rodgers has not pitched in the big leagues since 2016. He had a 3.22 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 32:16 K:BB in 44.2 innings at Triple-A and should pitch in low-leverage situations.
The Astros optioned Rodgers to their minor-league camp Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Rodgers was one of six players sent packing as the Astros reduced their big-league camp contingent to 55 men. The right-hander, who gave up five earned runs and 15 hits in his eight Grapefruit League innings, will likely slot into the Triple-A Round Rock rotation to begin 2019.
Rodgers will start the Astros' first Grapefruit League game Saturday against the Nationals, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
According to Jake Kaplan of The Athletic, manager A.J. Hinch said that the Astros "wanted to reward [Rodgers] and his rehab and getting back to camp healthy and feeling good by giving him the first start." It's a nice gesture, but the 28-year-old seems like a long shot to crack Houston's rotation out of spring training. After returning from Tommy John in July last year, Rodgers posted a 5.49 ERA and 30:10 K:BB in 41 innings of work at Triple-A.
Rodgers (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Friday and was sent to Triple-A Fresno, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.
Rodgers underwent Tommy John surgery in May of 2017, but he completed his rehabilitation assignment Friday and he'll serve as pitching depth for Houston with the potential for a late-season callup. Prior to suffering the injury, Rodgers made three starts for the Grizzlies in 2017, posting a 1.10 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with 11 strikeouts over 16.1 innings.
Rodgers (elbow) threw 37 pitches (26 strikes) and allowed four runs in two innings for short-season Tri-City on Wednesday.
Rodgers was making his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery in early 2017. The 2016 Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Year threw just 16.1 innings last season before exiting his third start with the problem that later required surgery.
Rodgers (elbow) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Low-A Tri-City on Wednesday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.
Rodgers has been on the shelf all season while working his way back from Tommy John surgery that he underwent in May of 2017. Considering how long he's been sidelined, Rodgers is expected to require an extended rehab stint. Once he's finally deemed healthy, Rodgers will likely report to Double-A Corpus Christi or Triple-A Fresno.
The Astros placed Rodgers (elbow) on the 10-day disabled list Thursday, MLB.com reports.
Rodgers underwent Tommy John surgery about 11 months ago and is close to resuming mound work, potentially setting him up for a mid-summer return from the disabled list. Prior to hitting the DL last spring, Rodgers was a fringe member of the Houston bullpen, so there's a high likelihood that he'll be optioned to Double-A Corpus Christi or Triple-A Fresno once he's activated.
Rodgers (elbow) is making progress in his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery and could pitch a full bullpen session before the end of camp, OIiver Macklin of MLB.com reports.
Rodgers underwent the surgery last May, so there's no real expectation that he'll be able to do much for the Astros in 2018. Prior to the surgery, Rodgers had put up some good numbers for Triple-A Fresno in the Pacific Coast League, posting a 2.67 ERA over his previous 148.1 innings.
Rodgers (elbow) will participate in pitchers' fielding practice and do "some light throwing" during spring training, per manager A.J. Hinch, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Hinch said Rodgers may throw a bullpen session within the next six weeks, however, the pitcher estimated his first bullpen will be sometime in May. The 27-year-old right-hander was coming off the best season of his career when he injured his elbow last spring and underwent Tommy John elbow surgery last May. He had a 2.86 ERA over 132 innings for Triple-A Fresno in 2016. Ideally, Rodgers would be a depth-starter option for the Astros, but the injury puts him out of the mix for that role.
Rodgers (elbow) is working out at Houston's spring training facility in Florida, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Rodgers underwent Tommy John surgery last May and is not expected to be pitching in a competitive environment until this summer. If he were healthy, Rodgers would open the season in the rotation at Triple-A Fresno and be a depth starter for the Astros. The 26-year-old right-hander has put together a nice run for the Grizzlies since the start of 2016, posting a 14-4 record with a 2.68 ERA and 5.3 K/BB rate. That's pretty effective pitching for the Pacific Coast League.
Rodgers (elbow) played catch Monday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery May 2, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The soon-to-be 27-year-old Rodgers will remain on the 60-day disabled list and probably won't be ready to pitch in game action until the summer of 2018.
Rodgers (elbow) was recalled from Triple-A Fresno and placed on the 60-day DL, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
He underwent Tommy John surgery back in May, and was promoted and placed on the 60-day DL simply to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Justin Verlander. Look for him to return to the mound next summer.
Rodgers (elbow) underwent UCL reconstruction surgery Tuesday which will put him out for the season, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Rodgers was forced out of a start at Triple-A in late April, and it seems that the worst-case scenario came to fruition. The 26-year-old was humming in the minor leagues this season, sporting a 1.10 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in three starts with Fresno, but now he'll focus on rehabbing his elbow in preparation for a return sometime during the 2018 campaign.
Rodgers is being evaluated for an injury to his right elbow, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Rodgers was flown back to Houston to visit team doctors after being lifted prematurely from his last start. The severity of the injury is currently unknown, though any injury to a pitcher's throwing elbow is often cause for concern. "We're currently determining next steps," Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "We should know something by early next week." Expect an update on his status once the Astros release more information.
Rodgers left his last start with Triple-A Fresno with an arm issue and is being evaluated, MLB.com's Brian McTaggert reports.
He has already been placed on the 7-day DL after leaving his last start after 4.1 innings, despite having not allowed a run on three hits and zero walks. The 26-year-old righty had a 1.10 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB in 16.1 innings this season prior to the injury.
