Rogers (1-0) earned the win Tuesday against the Mariners after tossing a scoreless inning. He allowed one hit and one walk while fanning one.
Rogers now has posted back-to-back scoreless appearances out of the bullpen after allowing three runs in two outings (1.2 innings) earlier this month. Rogers has three saves but has also blown two other save chances this season and, while he should remain as a reliable late-inning arm for San Francisco, it seems he will remain behind Tony Watson in the save pecking order.
Rogers struck out two batters in a perfect ninth inning Sunday, earning the save in a 4-2 win over Arizona.
Rogers needed just 12 pitches to cruise through the ninth inning Sunday and pick up us third save of the season. It was a promising outing for the 29-year-old after he'd allowed three runs over his previous two appearances, including a blown save chance on Wednesday. Still, Rogers is sporting a 6.00 ERA across 21 innings this season.
Rogers pitched a perfect ninth inning to earn the save in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
Rogers didn't record a strikeout, but he retired David Peralta, Christian Walker and Eduardo Escobar in order for his second save of the year. Tony Watson previously pitched a scoreless eighth inning in the contest, allowing one walk and adding a strikeout. It's unclear if Saturday's outing gives Rogers an edge for ninth-inning duties -- he has struggled with a 5.71 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 16:3 K:BB through 17.1 innings this season. Rogers has six holds, a blown save and a 1-3 record on his line.
Rogers has not allowed an earned run while striking out 10 in eight innings over eight appearances since blowing a save against the Dodgers on Aug. 9.
He recorded a save against the Astros on Aug. 11, and that was the last save opportunity anyone on the Giants has seen, despite the fact they went on a seven-game winning streak earlier this month. Rogers and Tony Watson appear to be the class of the bullpen, but it is unclear who would get the next save chance, given how far and few between those chances have been.
Rogers earned the save Tuesday against the Astros after pitching a scoreless inning with two strikeouts.
Rogers blew a save Sunday against the Dodgers, but he bounced back with a strong performance against Houston, and he has now delivered four scoreless outings in his last five appearances. He has gone 1-3 with a 10.61 ERA, however, as he has allowed multiple runs three times -- including four or more twice.
Rogers (1-3) allowed two runs on two hits and recorded his only out via strikeout, taking the loss Sunday versus the Dodgers.
Rogers gave up a three-run home run to A.J. Pollock in the seventh inning, which gave the Dodgers a 3-2 lead and left Rogers with the loss. The 29-year-old has five holds but also carries an unsightly 11.88 ERA and 1.58 WHIP across 8.1 innings this season. He's had three bad outings and six clean ones. Rogers has been too inconsistent to have much fantasy appeal in standard mixed leagues.
Rogers (1-2) took the loss Thursday, allowing six runs (five earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out two in one inning versus the Padres.
Rogers did just fine in the ninth inning, retiring the side cleanly, but it all fell apart when he retook the mound in the 10th. Rogers failed to record an out in the extra inning, and the damage was far too much for the Giants to overcome. The 29-year-old had produced three straight scoreless appearances after a similar blow-up on Opening Day against the Dodgers. Rogers' inconsistent pitching in non-save situations will likely keep him behind Trevor Gott and Tony Watson for closer duties in 2020.
Rogers (0-1) was charged with the Opening Day loss at Dodger Stadium on Thursday, surrendering four runs on three hits while recording just two outs.
With one out under his belt in the seventh, it all went downhill for Rogers after Mookie Betts singled and sparked a five-run rally, including a double from Cody Bellinger and a two-run single from Enrique Hernandez. Despite the loss, the 29-year-old is certainly in the conversation for saves this year. Rogers posted a 1.02 ERA and 0.85 WHIP across 17 appearances a season ago.
Manager Gabe Kapler suggested Rogers will fill a flexible role but could see save opportunities this season, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. "He's one guy we've been very clear and upfront with. There's been extra conversations with [Rogers]," Kapler said. "We see him as a Swiss army knife, a guy who can bounce back from a two-inning stint and give us an inning the next day. ... We also see his ability to perform in a traditional reliever's role. But he's mentally equipped to handle high-leverage situations. The fastball-slider combination can play to both right-handed and left-handed hitters. We also have data over the last three years that makes us confident in that assessment."
It's hard to know what exactly to make of this quote, though it's clear Rogers is going to play a big role in the San Francisco bullpen this season. Perhaps a tell: Kapler saying Rogers is "mentally equipped" for high-leverage duty, and his mention of "data over the last three years," perhaps alluding to Rogers closing in the minors in recent seasons. The submariner got the save opportunity in Saturday's intrasquad game and allowed a walkoff hit, per Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com, and the Giants are probably not going to provide a lot of save chances in a short season. That said, it sounds like Rogers has Kapler's trust, and it's not out of the question Rogers ends up seeing the lion's share of those opportunities over Tony Watson, even if he lacks the dominance typically associated with closing.
Manager Gabe Kapler said Tuesday, "We're excited about Rogers," after he retired all three batters faced in a Cactus League game against the White Sox, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR Radio reports.
Rogers made his major-league debut in 2019 and delivered a 1.02 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 16:3 K:BB over 17.2 innings while recording five holds. The 29-year-old submariner may begin 2020 in a high-leverage role, given San Francisco's lack of established back-end options in the bullpen.
Rogers fired two scoreless innings while allowing two hits and striking out three to earn his fifth hold of the season in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Braves.
Rogers has been on a roll since joining the major-league club Aug. 27, posting a 1.23 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and a 5.5 K/BB through 14 appearances. The submarine reliever isn't blowing batters away with a low-80s fastball, but his deceptive delivery and frisbee slider have kept opposing hitters off balance. The trust Bruce Bochy showed in Rogers by letting him pitch two innings against a loaded Braves' lineup is telling. The 28-year-old rookie has quickly become a high-leverage reliever for the Giants, and he is making a strong case for a bullpen spot out of the gates next season.
Rogers fired a scoreless inning while walking one and striking out two in Friday's 5-4 victory over the Dodgers.
Rogers picked up his first major-league hold after sitting down three of the Dodgers' toughest right-handed hitters in the seventh inning. The submarine righty has experienced early success with a 1.35 ERA over 6.2 innings since being called up Aug. 27. With Reyes Moronta and Trevor Gott both on the 60-day injured list, Rogers could find himself in more high-leverage situations against righty-heavy portions of opposing lineups.
Rogers had his contract selected from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Rogers will have a chance to make his big-league debut after posting a 4.21 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with a 55:28 K:BB over 62 innings this season at Triple-A. He'll work out of the bullpen while with San Francisco.
