Rogers was released by the Pirates on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Rogers requested the release so he could sign with a professional team in Japan, but leaves after two relatively productive seasons with Triple-A Indianapolis. Despite his .289 batting average and nine home runs this season, the 29-year-old was mainly bound to serve as organizational depth behind rising first baseman Josh Bell, catalyzing his request for a release. Rogers went 2-for-25 with nine strikeouts for the Pirates last year, his last appearance in the majors.
