RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Mark Rogers.
Rogers did not have a special Triple-A campaign, posting just a 4.72 ERA in 18 starts, but he saw his first extended major league action and managed to hold his own, posting a 3.92 ERA and showing a renewed strikeout ability, with 41 punchouts over 39 innings. Rogers' biggest problem in his career has been his health, but he managed to throw a career-high 134.1 innings in 2012. Rogers will likely open next season in the minors given that he will be on an innings limit again, but a better showing with Nashville could convince the Brewers he is worthy of more starts at the top level.
Rogers continued his astounding return from two major shoulder surgeries to have a solid season in 2010. He started at Double-A Huntsville and finished with a few starts in Milwaukee. Rogers has had a problem with his control in the minors, but has no problem missing bats. He throws a mid-90s fastball and combines it with a plus curve. The Brewers would love to see him develop a bit more and contend for a rotation spot this spring.
Rogers returned after missing two seasons due to shoulder surgeries and was impressive for High-A Brevard County. He had a 1.68 ERA with a 9.39 K/9IP in 64.2 innings while getting his velocity back up into the mid-90s. An abysmal Arizona Fall League performance put a little bit of a damper on his year, but not that much. The Brewers will try to up his innings a little bit in 2010 and push him to Double-A Huntsville. All he needs to do is improve his command (and stay healthy) before he'll be in Milwaukee, either in the bullpen or the rotation.
Rogers shows as much potential as any pitcher in the minors, but has yet to put it all together. He has a fastball that hits 100 mph and a upper-80s slider and has drawn comparisons with John Smoltz. The problem is his lack of any control. Last season he had a 5.07 ERA and struck out 96 in just 71 innings but also walked 53. His ERA is slightly higher than it should be due to a .368 BABIP, so in that context he did pitch a little better than it looks. Rogers was shut down with shoulder soreness in July. He returned to pitch four rehab innings, but the Brewers aren't taking any chances with him and won't let him pitch again until this spring. He may get bumped up to Double-A Huntsville to start next season.
Rogers has a tremendous arm and tons of potential, but has yet to turn that into on-field production. On the plus side, he struck out 109 batters in 98 2/3 IP, but he also walked 70.
Rogers, the Brewers first round pick in the 2004 draft, started out in low rookie ball and had a 4.81 ERA in 26 2/3 innings. Depending on how he does this spring, he could find himself in low Single-A ball but will more likely get another year of rookie league experience. He's got a very hight ceiling but is still a long way from making the majors. As with any high school pitcher, he'll need to avoid the injury bug in order to get to Milwaukee.
A top first-rounder in 2004, his pitch repertoire has yet to be developed beyond a mid-90s fastball. A sharp curve and change up need some work but that’s expects from a high schooler
