Rogers gave up two hits and one walk over three scoreless innings during Saturday's loss to the Yankees. He struck out four and didn't factor in the decision.
The 22-year-old has struggled to find much consistency in 2020, but he had no issues during Saturday's short outing. Rogers will finish his rookie campaign with seven starts and a 6.11 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 39:13 K:BB over 28 innings.
Rogers (1-2) took the loss Monday, giving up five runs on eight hits and two walks over four innings as the Marlins fell 5-4 to Atlanta. He struck out six.
Miami scored three runs in the top of the first inning, but Rogers immediately gave the lead back with interest, surrendering a four-spot in the bottom of the frame. The rookie southpaw will carry a 6.84 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 35:12 K:BB through 25 innings into his final start of the season Saturday, on the road against the Yankees.
Rogers allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out three across three innings Wednesday against the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision.
Rogers got off to a rough start as he allowed the first two batters of the game to reach before picking up three consecutive outs to escape the inning. He later found himself in a similar scenario in the third and couldn't get out of it cleanly as J.D. Martinez drove Alex Verdugo home on a sac fly to right. Despite needing 76 pitches to get through three innings, it was a solid bounce-back performance from Rogers after he got shelled for nine runs against the Phillies last Friday. The 22-year-old has a 6.00 ERA along with a 29:10 K:BB across 21 innings and is set to take the mound Monday against the division-leading Braves.
Rogers (1-1) took the loss in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, surrendering nine runs (eight earned) on nine hits over three-plus innings. He struck out five without walking a batter.
After tossing two scoreless frames to begin the game, Rogers got tagged for four runs in the third before the wheels came off completely in the fourth -- the first five batters all reached base before the young southpaw finally got the hook after a Rhys Hoskins homer. Rogers' ERA more than doubled as a result of the disastrous outing, and while a 26:8 K:BB through his first 18 big-league innings is impressive, he'll carry a 6.50 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 2.5 HR/9 into his next start Wednesday, at home against the Red Sox.
Rogers allowed three runs on four hits and a walk across six innings in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Rays. He struck out 10 and did not factor in the decision.
Aside from allowing three solo homers, Rogers was excellent Sunday. After striking out 11 and walking seven across his first two outings, the rookie fanned 10 Rays while allowing just one free pass. He will take a tidy 3.00 ERA into his start against the Phillies on Friday.
Rogers (1-0) picked up the win against the Mets on Monday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks across five innings pitched. He struck out five.
After five walks prevented Rogers from working past the fourth inning in his first start, the left-hander issued just two free passes in Monday's outing. Rogers spotted the Mets a 2-0 lead in the third and it was looking like he was going to be on the hook for a loss for a lot of the game. Fortunately for the rookie, Miami rallied for four runs off Jacob deGrom in the top of the sixth to take the lead. Alex Vesia replaced Rogers to start the sixth and the Marlins' bullpen held the lead to get Rogers his first career victory. Rogers is slated to make his next start Sunday against the Rays.
Rogers is slated to start Monday's game against the Mets.
Though the Marlins returned Sandy Alcantara from the COVID-19 injured list Sunday and could get two more starters in Jose Urena and Caleb Smith back this week, Rogers will be rewarded with a second turn through the rotation after a solid MLB debut. He tossed four scoreless frames in a no-decision against the Mets, working around one hit and five walks while striking out six. Rogers may need to do a better job of keeping his free passes in check if he hopes to earn any further turns through the rotation beyond Monday.
Rogers pitched four scoreless innings, allowing a hit and five walks while striking out six in a no-decision versus the Mets in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.
The 22-year-old Rogers hadn't pitched above the Double-A level prior to Tuesday's start. Outside of the wildness of his five walks, it was a respectable performance in a low-scoring contest. Rogers' time in the Marlins' rotation may be short -- once Sandy Alcantara, Caleb Smith or Jose Urena can return, it's possible Rogers returns to the alternate training site.
Rogers had his contract selected Tuesday by the Marlins and will start Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The 22-year-old was named the starter for the nightcap earlier in the day, but he wasn't yet a member of the 40-man roster. Rogers will make his major-league debut Tuesday having appeared in only five games at Double-A Jacksonville last season.
Rogers will start Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
While Rogers is one of the Marlins' top pitching prospects, he is not in the same class as guys like Sixto Sanchez and Edward Cabrera. He still needs to be officially added to the 40-man roster. Over his 136.1 innings in total last season between Double-A Jacksonville and High-A Jupiter, Rogers submitted a 2.90 ERA and 150:33 K:BB. Once Sandy Alcantara and Caleb Smith return from the injured list in the coming days, Rogers should return to the alternate training site.
The Marlins are expected to call up Rogers from their alternate training site to start one game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Though Rogers isn't currently on the 40-man roster, Miami would have a spot open for him after it designated reliever Sterling Sharp for assignment Monday. A 2017 first-round pick, Rogers is one of the Marlins' top pitching prospects, but the 22-year-old lefty lacks much high-level experience after having only made five starts at the Double-A level in 2019. Over his 136.1 innings in total last season between Double-A Jacksonville and High-A Jupiter, Rogers submitted a 2.90 ERA and 150:33 K:BB.
Rogers is part of the Marlins' 60-man player pool, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
He is not on the 40-man roster, but his inclusion will give him a chance to work on his development with many of the Marlins' other top prospects. Rogers is a solid pitching prospect, but he logged a 4.50 ERA in five starts at Double-A last season, so he is probably not ready to hold his own against big-league hitters.
Rogers gave up two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two in three innings in big-league camp this spring.
He was sent to minor-league camp pretty early this spring training. The 22-year-old southpaw finished 2019 with a 4.50 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 28:9 K:BB in 26 innings at Double-A and will likely return to that level when the minor-league season gets underway.
Rogers was invited to the Marlins' big-league camp Tuesday.
Rogers was taken with the 13th-overall pick back in 2017. In 23 starts for High-A Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville last season, he recorded a 2.90 ERA, a 26.5 percent strikeout rate and a 5.8 percent walk rate. Just five of those starts came at the Double-A level, though, so he likely needs some more minor-league experience before he's ready to push for a big-league roster spot.
Rogers was promoted to Double-A Jacksonville on Saturday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
The 21-year-old lefty logged a 2.53 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 122:24 K:BB in 18 starts for High-A Jupiter.
Rogers gave up two runs on four hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out six for High-A Jupiter on Sunday.
The 21-year-old southpaw has been nearly untouchable over his last seven starts, posting a 1.54 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 56:7 K:BB through 46.2 innings over that stretch. Rogers is exploding up prospect lists with a breakout season, as he's been able to hold his velocity deeper into games and improve his command and control from his shaky debut last year. He still needs to sharpen his off-speed pitches if he's going to become even a mid-rotation starter in the majors, but given his 6-foot-6 frame and arsenal, his James Paxton-like upside is starting to come into focus.
Rogers allowed an unearned run on two hits and a walk over a career-high eight innings while striking out eight for High-A Jupiter on Thursday.
Since the beginning of May, the lefty has been on an absolute tear through the Florida State League, posting a 2.44 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 62:13 K:BB through 48 innings over eight starts. Rogers had a disappointing season last year after being the 13th overall pick in the 2017 draft, but something seems to have clicked for the 21-year-old. Despite his relative lack of pro experience, a promotion to Double-A before the end of the year isn't out of the question if he keeps up this pace.
Rogers gave up a hit and two walks over six scoreless innings for High-A Jupiter on Sunday, striking out nine.
The southpaw sports a 3.02 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 65:19 K:BB through 62.2 innings this season, but those numbers mask a big turnaround in the strikeout department -- after posting a mediocre 18:7 K:BB through his first 27.2 IP, Rogers has fanned at least eight batters in five of his last six outings, boasting a 47:12 K:BB through 35 frames over that stretch. A first-round pick in 2017, the 21-year-old will move quickly up the Marlins' prospect rankings if he keeps dominating through the rest of 2019.
Rogers has posted a 2.01 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 15:5 K:BB through 22.1 innings for High-A Jupiter to begin the season.
It's always nice to see a pitcher not give up runs -- in fact, he's allowed only one unearned run over his last two starts -- but the rest of Rogers' line so far isn't that impressive. The 21-year-old southpaw isn't generating whiffs, a disappointing performance after he managed a 10.6 K/9 in his pro debut at Low-A last year, and he'll need to start dominating if he's going to live up to his billing as the 13th overall pick in the 2017 draft.
