Twins' Taylor Rogers: Grabs 20th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers recorded three strikeouts and didn't allow a baserunner over 1.2 scoreless innings to secure the save in Saturday's win over the Tigers.

Rogers entered with one out in the eighth inning and runners on first and second, but he escaped the frame with no issues and delivered again in the ninth to closes things out. The 28-year-old is 20-for-26 in save chances with a 2.51 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 75:10 K:BB this season.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Allows two hits in save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers allowed two hits and struck out two batters in a scoreless frame, earning the save over Texas on Sunday.

Rogers got the save chance while Sergio Romo worked the eighth inning Sunday after the two reversed roles on Friday. It looks like the Twins are going to be using more of a closer-by-committee strategy until one of the two pulls away with the job. Rogers is now 19-for-25 in save chances with a 2.59 ERA.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Bypassed for save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers gave up two hits and struck out two in a scoreless eighth inning Friday to record his 10th save of the season in Friday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

Sergio Romo worked the ninth and picked up his third save as a Twin, and all of a sudden it looks like manager Rocco Baldelli might be deploying a two-man, matchup-based committee at closer, as Texas sent three right-handed batters to the plate to begin the final frame. Rogers does have a 4.80 ERA through 15 innings since the All-Star break, but his 19:3 K:BB isn't a sign he's been pitching poorly. The southpaw should remain the team's top option for saves down the stretch, but Rogers might have to cede more opportunities to Romo than anticipated.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Falls to 2-3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers (2-3) allowed a grand slam while striking out one batter in one-third of an inning as he took the loss to Cleveland on Sunday.

The lefty entered a tie game in the 10th inning and put three straight runners on base before Carlos Santana smashed a game-winning grand slam. The rough outing inflated Rogers' ERA from 2.03 to 2.68, though his 68:10 K:BB still looks terrific.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Records 17th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers threw a hitless and scoreless inning to record his 17th save of the season in a 3-0 win over the Royals on Sunday.

Rogers entered the ninth inning with a three-run lead and made quick work of the Royals to nail down his 17th save. Rogers didn't allow a baserunner for the third time in is last four appearances. The 28-year-old has a 2.10 ERA and a 65:9 K:BB through 43 appearances this season.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Fans three in blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers struck out the side during the ninth but allowed the Marlins to tie the game and force extra innings during a loss Tuesday.

Rogers entered the game with the bases loaded and no outs while the Twins were clinging to a two-run lead and allowed two inherited runners to score on a single, but then he struck out the side while mixing in an intentional walk against the next four batters. All of his numbers improved except his WHIP, but Rogers now has six blown saves versus 16 saves this season. He also owns a 2.15 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 65 strikeouts in 50.1 innings.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Nabs 16th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his 16th save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Marlins.

The addition of former Miami closer Sergio Romo to the Minnesota bullpen doesn't seem to have impacted Rogers' role, as Romo worked the eighth inning in front of the southpaw. Rogers now has a strong 2.22 ERA and 60:8 K:BB through 48.2 innings on the year.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Blows save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers allowed two earned runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one to blow the save Tuesday against the Yankees.

Rogers came on in the ninth inning to protect a one-run lead against the Yankees, but failed to convert, as he surrendered a two-run homer to Aaron Hicks. While he was ultimately bailed out by the Twins' offense in the bottom of the ninth to avoid the loss, Rogers has now blown two of his last three save chances. He still maintains a strong 2.27 ERA and 11.1 K/9 across 47.2 innings for the season, though his recent struggles could cause the Twins to look for bullpen reinforcements as the trade deadline looms.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Avoids trouble to earn save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers allowed two hits and struck out one batter in a scoreless ninth inning, earning the save over the Yankees on Monday.

Rogers allowed a pair of one-out singles but managed to strike out Gary Sanchez and force an Aaron Hicks groundout to end the Yankees' first-and-third threat. Over his last three outings, the 28-year-old has given up seven hits and two runs over four innings but converted two of those three save chances. Still, he owns a 1.93 ERA and 58:7 K:BB, giving him a strong grip on the Twins' closing job unless the team acquires a big-name bullpen arm before the trade deadline.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Blows save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers (2-2) allowed two earned runs on three hits and a hit batsman while striking out one across an inning to blow the save and take the loss Saturday against the Athletics.

Rogers got the first two outs of the inning without incident but hit Mark Canha with a pitch and then surrendered three consecutive hits to allow the Athletics to take the lead. It was Rogers' first blown save in nearly a month, and the first earned run he's allowed in his last eight appearances. He now has a 1.97 ERA and 0.99 WHIP across 45.2 innings with 14 saves for the season.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Picks up 14th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers earned the save against Oakland on Thursday, tossing two scoreless innings and giving up two hits while striking out one batter.

After Minnesota took a one-run lead on a three-run homer off the bat of Eddie Rosario in the seventh inning, Rogers was brought in for the two-inning save. He worked his way out of a jam in the eighth, leaving the tying run stranded at second base, then retired the side in order in the ninth after the Twins plated a pair of insurance runs. Rogers appears to have a firm stranglehold on the closer job for the Twins, as he has now converted 14 of 17 save opportunities -- six of which have gone for two or more innings. He has posted an impressive 1.61 ERA along with a 0.94 WHIP and 56:7 K:BB in 44.2 innings this season.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Notches another two-inning save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers allowed one hit while striking out three in two scoreless innings to pick up his 13th save Friday against the Indians.

He is obviously dominant against lefties, but Rogers has been excellent all season in a variety of high-leverage situations. It seems that he is taking the closing job and running with it in Minnesota, as Blake Parker's last save was on June 22. This was Rogers' fifth save of at least two innings this season.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Gets 12th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers earned the save in a 7-4 win over the Rangers on Saturday, throwing 2.1 perfect innings while striking out five of the seven batters he faced.

Rogers has now converted 12 of his 15 save opportunities and has received the team's last seven save chances. The 28-year-old holds a 1.82 ERA, a 0.82 WHIP and a 51:7 K:BB this season and looks locked in as the Twins stopper going into the second half.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Notches 11th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers gave up one hit and struck out two over a scoreless inning to record his 11th save in a 4-3 win over the Athletics on Wednesday.

Rogers didn't enter the game until the 12th inning and had two runners reach base (one on an error), but he recovered to nail down the save. The left-hander has a 2-1 record with a 1.93 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP heading into the All-Star break.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Notches 10th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers tossed a perfect four-out save in Wednesday's 6-4 victory over the Rays.

Rogers was called upon in the eighth inning to replace Blake Parker with one on and two outs. The 28-year-old needed just eight pitches to complete the game and pick up his 10th save of the year. Through 30 appearances, Rogers owns a 2.04 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 42:7 K:BB.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Blows save against Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers was hit with his third blown save of the season Saturday against the Royals after he allowed one run on two hits in one inning. He struck out out one and walked one.

Rogers wasn't being used in a typical save situation, as he came in with two men on and none out in the eighth inning. He got the first two batters out but allowed the next three to reach base, driving in both of his inherited runners as well as one more. The Twins would eventually take the lead in the 10th inning, with Blake Parker recording the save.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Nails down ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers struck out one over two perfect innings to record his ninth save of the season in an 8-7 win over the Royals on Friday.

The southpaw has moved into a tie with Blake Parker for the team lead in saves, and five of Rogers' nine have come in June. On the season, Rogers sports an outstanding 1.91 ERA and 41:7 K:BB over 33 innings.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Collects eighth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers allowed a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning to secure the save Saturday versus the Royals. He did not record a strikeout.

Rogers certainly didn't take the easy route Saturday as he allowed the tying run to reach second base, but he was ultimately able to preserve the one-run lead. The 28-year-old has a 2.10 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 38:7 K:BB through 30 innings and is 8-for-10 in save opportunities while also recording nine holds.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Notches seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his seventh save of the season in a 2-0 win over the Royals.

A sore back had left Rogers unavailable over the last few days -- he hadn't pitched since June 6 -- but the southpaw looked 100 percent in polishing off the combined shutout for Kyle Gibson. The Twins continue to use a closing committee, but Rogers is the only left-handed option in the mix, leading him to two wins and nine holds in addition to seven saves in nine chances over 25 appearances.

June 14, 2019 02:12 PM
Twins' Taylor Rogers: Still recovering from sore back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers (back) could have been used in an emergency in Thursday's game, but the Twins preferred to give him more time to recover, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It sounds like he could be available this weekend, but expect the Twins to be cautious. Trevor May has entered the closer mix with Rogers ailing.
