Rogers (elbow) cleared waivers Wednesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk.
Rogers underwent Tommy John surgery in early July and is unlikely to pitch until late in 2020 if at all. He allowed 14 earned runs in 14.1 big-league innings prior to the injury.
Rogers underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The procedure was technically referred to as UCL revision, as he'd already gone through the surgery once in high school. Rogers will miss the rest of 2019 and will return very late in 2020 at the earliest.
The Orioles transferred Rogers (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Monday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
The transaction opens up a roster spot for Tom Eshelman -- who was called up from Triple-A Norfolk to start Monday's game against the Rays -- and ensures that Rogers won't be eligible to rejoin the Orioles until late August at the soonest. While Rogers has yet to formally decide on a treatment method for his UCL injury, the expectation is that he'll undergo Tommy John surgery within the next couple of weeks, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports. The procedure would keep Rogers out of the remainder of the 2019 season and likely sideline him for most -- if not all -- of the 2020 campaign, as well.
Rogers was diagnosed with a strained UCL and will receive a second opinion, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
This is a tough break for Rogers, who expressed concern over the injury Wednesday. The Orioles will wait for the results of his second opinion before moving forward, but Tommy John surgery appears to be the likeliest possibility at this point.
Rogers was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left elbow sprain.
This move comes after Rogers struggled in his most recent outing against the Padres on Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk over 2.1 innings. It's unclear how long the southpaw will be sidelined following this injury, though he should remain out of commission at least through the All-Star break. Paul Fry was summoned from the minors in a corresponding move, while the Orioles have yet to announce who will replace Rogers in the rotation.
Rogers was charged with three runs on five hits over 2.1 innings during Tuesday's 8-3 loss to San Diego. He issued one walk and had zero strikeouts.
Rogers delivered 20 of his 34 pitches for strikes and had little luck putting away hitters Tuesday. The 24-year-old was spared from being handed the loss since opener Jimmy Yacabonis allowed five runs. Rogers' 8.79 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 5:6 K:BB through 14.1 innings will keep him off fantasy radars even if he continues to see chances as a bulk reliever.
Rogers is expected to work behind opener Jimmy Yacabonis in Tuesday's game against the Padres, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Manager Brandon Hyde hasn't formally declared which pitcher will enter the contest after Yacabonis, but Rogers is the only available option capable of providing length out of the bullpen. Rogers previously followed Yacobonis on June 19 in Oakland, working three innings and surrendering three runs on three hits and a walk.
Rogers (0-1) was handed the loss Wednesday at Oakland after surrendering three runs on three hits and a walk over three innings. He struck out two.
Rogers started out with two scoreless frames after entering in the third inning, but he scuffled during the fifth and eventually served up a three-run homer to Josh Phegley. The Orioles have a pair of scheduled off days next week, so it's not clear when the 24-year-old will next be called upon to start.
Rogers will follow opener Jimmy Yacabonis on Wednesday against the Athletics, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Rogers will still cover the majority of innings Wednesday, though he'll likely avoid the heart of Oakland's order before entering. In two appearances as a long reliever this season, Rogers owns a 7.88 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 2:3 K:BB across eight innings.
Rogers will start Wednesday against Oakland, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Rogers owns a 7.88 ERA in eight innings of relief for the Orioles this season. He's been even worse in 11 starts for Triple-A Norfolk, recording an 8.51 ERA. He walked just 3.9 percent of opposing batters for Norfolk but also struck out just 13.0 percent.
Rogers was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.
The southpaw will take the spot of Josh Lucas, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain. Rogers was shelled for five runs on four hits and a walk over 3.2 innings in his lone appearance in the big leagues earlier this season.
Rogers was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk following Wednesday's loss to the Athletics.
Rogers was called up from Norfolk after Tuesday's game and allowed five runs on four hits -- including three homers -- over 3.2 innings during his lone game with the team. The 24-year-old should resume his starting role with the Tides.
Rogers was called up from Triple-A Norfolk following Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
The move comes as no surprise with the Orioles needing to bolster their pitching depth with Alex Cobb (back) moving to the injured list, though Rogers won't make the spot start Wednesday as earlier postulated. Dan Straily will instead get the starting nod, while Rogers could be used in long relief given Straily threw 44 pitches out of the bullpen Sunday.
Rogers was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday for Triple-A Norfolk and could be called up to make a spot start for the Orioles on Wednesday against the A's, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Alex Cobb (lower-back strain) was placed on the injured list, and the O's need someone to make Cobb's scheduled start Wednesday. Rogers would likely be sent back to Triple-A after that start, as Baltimore can move to a five-man rotation once Dan Straily is able to get on turn until Cobb is activated. Rogers has posted bottom-of-the-scale strikeout rates at every stop in the upper levels of the minors.
Rogers (back) was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Rogers had a decent spring, finishing with a 4.24 ERA in 17 innings, though he struck out just seven batters. He's dealing with a tweaked back, though the fact that he was optioned rather than placed on the injured list may suggest that he's expected to return soon.
Rogers exited Thursday's game against the Pirates after tweaking his back, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Rogers apparently suffered the injury after his spike got awkwardly caught on the mound. The southpaw allowed one run on two walks in one inning prior to exiting. While his removal is being called precautionary, it could prematurely end his spring with just a few days left on the exhibition schedule. It's unclear if this injury will affect Rogers' bid for one of the team's final rotation spots.
Rogers remains in contention for one of the two remaining spots available in Baltimore's Opening Day rotation, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
With Dylan Bundy, Alex Cobb and Andrew Cashner all assured starting roles, it's down to Rogers, David Hess and Mike Wright for the final two openings. Though both Hess and Wright have more experience at the big-league level, both have largely floundered in their respective cameos and may offer less upside at this point than Rogers, a soft-tossing control specialist. Rogers owns a 3.86 ERA this spring but has given up four home runs and struck out only seven across 14 innings, so he's not without his warts either.
Rogers has been sent home by the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Rogers was announced as being done as a starter last week and now will not pitch out of the bullpen either. He threw a career-high 151.1 innings split between Triple-A and the majors this season. In his 11.2 innings at the big-league level, he allowed 11 runs.
Rogers will not take the mound as a starting pitcher again this season, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Rogers has reached a career-high 151.1 innings between Triple-A and the majors this season, but could still be utilized as a reliever over the final few weeks of the season. The 24-year-old should enter spring training as a candidate for Baltimore's starting rotation.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after Friday's 14-2 loss to the Rays that Rogers would start in the series finale Sunday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
It was expected that Rogers would be shut down after he tossed 5.1 frames in his second start for the Orioles on Sept. 3, bringing his season total up to 150 innings between the minors and majors. However, with a blister preventing scheduled starter Alex Cobb from taking the hill Sunday, Rogers will get one more turn through the rotation before likely being shuttered for 2018. With an effective showing over the weekend, Rogers could bolster his case for claiming a full-time starting role with Baltimore next season.
