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.
