Prospect of the Day:  RHP Mark Rogers

The 26-year-old right-hander burst back onto the scene in 2010, topping Brewers’ prospect rankings and looking to be a rock within the Brewers’ starting rotation for the next half-decade. Unfortunately, carpel tunnel syndrome and a suspension knocked him off the top-prospect pedestal, once again erasing him from the organizational plans.

He returned this season, though his improvements that shone through in 2010 were nowhere to be found. Opposing hitters have laced the baseball all over the diamond, which is evidenced through his .277 opponent batting average. He has continued to walk more players than the average Triple-A pitcher, and he also has seen his strikeouts decline.

That’s why his seven-shutout-inning performance on Tuesday evening was so encouraging. The strikeout pitch has not returned to this point in the season, but it will be interesting to see if Rogers grabs this modicum of success and really builds upon it. The Brewers will need young pitching in 2013. Rogers has a chance to be one of those young pitchers, but he does need to start pitching better and generating some improved results.

    Attaboy Rogers! Faced 2 over the minimum through 7. Nice job. I predict his next outing will be 5IP, 4H, 3ER, 4BB, 4K, 3WP, haha

    Is Jed Bradley falling apart? Seriously, what’s the dude’s problem? This is frickin’ A-ball. Chris Reed, Matt Barnes, Sonny Gray, Sean Gilmartin– all college pitchers taken after him in Rd 1 and having a heck of better start to their pro careers. Sheesh.

      I have similar questions about Bradley. Don’t like the direction he seems headed…

      As for Rogers, that projected/supposed/imagined line for his next outing doesn’t seems all that far fetched. It’s really sad because this guy has had to deal with a lot and finally seemed to have found himself two years ago. He started a September game I was at and looked pretty good, then…pffff. Really a shame, for him personally and the Brewers organization. Here’s hoping young Bradley doesn’t fizzle the same way.
