Twins' Taylor Rogers: Picks up win in extra innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers (2-4) earned the win Tuesday against the Tigers. He allowed one unearned run on two hits while fanning one across just one inning.

Rogers pitched the top of the 10th for the Twins and allowed the second-base runner to cross home plate on back-to-back one-out hits, but he bounced back to close the inning rather quickly. The offense backed him up with two runs in the bottom of the 10th, though, so Rogers ended as the winning pitcher in this extra-inning contest. Rogers has nine saves this season and should remain as Minnesota's primary closer alternative in both the final games of the regular season and the playoffs.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Implodes in non-save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers (1-4) gave up two runs on two hits and a pair of walks in one-third of an inning to take the loss Monday versus the White Sox.

Rogers allowed four of the five batters he faced to reach base, and the two runs he gave up were enough to stick him with the loss. The 29-year-old saw his ERA balloon to 4.86 with a 1.56 WHIP in 16.2 innings this year. He is 9-for-11 in save chances across 18 appearances.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Picks up save No. 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers allowed one run on two hits (one home run) but was still able to shut the door on the Indians for his ninth save of the season Friday.

Rogers allowed a solo shot in the ninth to Jose Ramirez but was ultimately able to get the job done for his ninth save on the year. Rogers dons a 4.11 ERA across 15.1 innings which isn't something to get too excited about but his 19:1 K:BB suggests he does a fantastic job withholding his opponents from getting free passes.

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

Rogers tossed one scoreless inning Friday as he earned the save in Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Tigers. He allowed one hit and no walks while striking out one.

The Tigers struggled offensively throughout Friday's matinee, and Rogers came on to slam the door as he picked up his first save since Aug. 24. The southpaw bounced back from a rough appearance his last time around and now carries a 4.05 ERA over 13.1 innings this year.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Takes loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers (1-3) was tagged with the loss Monday against the White Sox. He gave up three runs (all unearned) on three hits while fanning one in one inning.

Rogers has allowed two or more hits in six of his last nine appearances and has given up runs in three of his last four contests, but the 29-year-old left-hander should still be considered the top candidate for saves in Minnesota. He owns a 3.60 ERA in his last five appearances.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Locks down seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning Monday, earning the save over Cleveland.

Rogers needed just 11 pitches to roll through the top of Cleveland's lineup, working around a two-out single by Francisco Lindor. It was his first scoreless appearance since Aug. 16, but he's recorded saves in two consecutive days.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Records sixth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers picked up the save in Sunday's win over the Royals, allowing one run on two hits in one inning pitched. He struck out one.

Rogers entered the game with the Twins leading 5-3 in the ninth. He allowed a double to Hunter Dozier and an RBI single to Maikel Franco but got Alex Gordon to fly out to end the game. Rogers now has six saves on the campaign, but he will look to bring down his 5.23 ERA moving forward.

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

Rogers couldn't lock down the save opportunity against Milwaukee on Tuesday, pitching one inning and allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and a walk while striking out two.

Rogers came on in relief of Kenta Maeda, who was in line for a win after not allowing a hit until the ninth inning. Unfortunately, Rogers was unable to preserve a three-run lead, yielding a pair of hits and a walk to allow the Brewers to tie the score. The blown save was the second of the campaign for the southpaw, who now sports a 4.82 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season.

August 16, 2020 11:48 AM
Twins' Taylor Rogers: Records fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers allowed two hits and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to record the save in the first game a doubleheader against the Royals on Saturday.

Rogers was called upon to protect a two-run lead, and he never allowed the tying run to reach base despite allowing two hits. He erased a leadoff single by inducing a double play to the next batter and followed up another single with a strikeout to close the game to get his fifth save. Rogers has given up runs in two of his last four appearances to inflate his ERA to 4.91, but his skills remain in place as he has a 9:0 K:BB across 7.1 frames for the season.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Locks down fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning Monday, striking out two batters and picking up the save over the Brewers.

Rogers allowed a two-out double to Manny Pina but fanned Mark Mathias to finish off the game. It was encouraging to see the 29-year-old lefty turn in a solid performance after blowing his last save opportunity. He's sporting a 3.38 ERA with a 7:0 K:BB across 5.1 innings this season.

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

Rogers (1-1) recorded only one out but surrendered three hits and two earned runs to blow the save and take the loss Thursday against the Pirates.

Rogers was called upon to protect a 5-4 lead in the ninth inning, but struggled immediately. He allowed a single and double to the first two batters he faced. After striking out the third hitter of the inning, he allowed another base knock to surrender two runs to lose the game. This was Rogers' first stumble of the season, and he has still allowed opposing batters to go only 4-for-17 against him. He should remain in line for plenty of saves.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Nabs third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Saturday to collect his third save of the season in a 3-0 win over Cleveland.

That's now three saves in four days for Rogers, who has yet to give up a baserunner on the season. After emerging as a dominant late-inning arm in 2018 and seizing the ninth-inning role for the Twins last year, the 29-year-old will look to establish himself as one of the game's premier closers in 2020.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Secures second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers worked a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his second save of the season in a 4-1 win over Cleveland.

The southpaw needed only five pitches to generate three weak groundballs to shortstop Jorge Polanco in an ultra-efficient performance. Those with fantasy shares in Rogers may have panicked a bit when Sergio Romo collected the first save of the year for Minnesota, but since then Rogers has demonstrated that he has a firm hold on the closer gig.

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

Rogers earned the save in Wednesday's victory over St. Louis, pitching a perfect ninth inning and striking out two batters.

A day after being passed up for the team's first save opportunity of the season, Rogers was called upon to protect a three-run lead against the Cardinals on Wednesday. He succeeded in style, needing only 11 pitches -- nine of which were strikes -- to set St. Louis down in order. That should erase any doubt about Rogers' status as Minnesota's clear-cut closer after Sergio Romo sniped the save Tuesday.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Not used in save situation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergio Romo and not Rogers was used in a save situation Tuesday night in part because the Cardinals scored a run in the eighth to make it a three-run game, and Romo had already been "up and hot" in the bullpen, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Manager Rocco Baldelli's explanation makes sense -- why warm up two different relievers for one outing? But it's also frustrating from a fantasy perspective when every save chance matters in a short season. Rogers has yet to pitch in a game this season.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Ups fastball velocity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers raised his average fastball velocity this spring and gave up one run on six hits and one walk over five innings while striking out seven, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Park did not specify how hard Rogers was throwing, but we can assume it was harder than the 95 mph he averaged on his fastball in 2019. Seemingly everyone in the Twins' bullpen was throwing a bit harder this spring, but Rogers remains the cream of the crop and should get the majority of the save opportunities when the season gets underway.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers and the Twins avoided arbitration with a one-year deal Friday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

The financial terms of the deal have yet to be released, but Rogers should be in for a significant raise after emerging as the Twins' closer last season. He saved 30 games while posting a 2.61 ERA and a 32.4 percent strikeout rate.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Records 30th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers picked up his 30th save of the season Saturday against the Royals, striking out one and walking one in a scoreless ninth inning.

Rogers emerged from an an unclear bullpen situation to become the clear primary ninth-inning option this season. No one else has saved more than 10 games for the Twins this year, and no one on the team's current roster has saved more than three. The role is well-deserved, as Rogers owns a 2.61 ERA and a 32.4 percent strikeout rate on the season while walking just 4.0 percent of opposing batters.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Grabs 29th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers struck out one without allowing a baserunner in the ninth inning to record the save Tuesday against the Tigers.

Rogers needed only 12 pitches to record his 29th save of the season. Three days after being tagged for three earned runs, Rogers bounced back to record his eighth scoreless effort in his last 10 appearances. For the season, he now owns a 2.65 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 89 strikeouts across 68 innings.

Twins' Taylor Rogers: Struggles in ninth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rogers (2-4) took the loss Saturday, giving up three runs on three hits in one-third of an inning as the Twins were downed 12-5 by the Royals.

The southpaw entered the game in the ninth inning with the score tied 5-5 and promptly made a mess of things. He gave up a single, a two-run homer and a ground-rule double before getting the hook, with his only out coming via a sacrifice bunt. Rogers has only been scored upon in three of 16 appearances since his last blown save Aug. 1, but when he fails, he tends to do so spectacularly: Despite all the clean outings and a 23:1 K:BB through 16.2 innings over that stretch, he has a 4.32 ERA.
