Prospect of the Day:  RHP Mark Rogers

It’s crazy how much one’s stock can change in just a few weeks. At the end of June, Mark Rogers possessed an ERA over 5.00 and was coming off his worst month of the entire season. In his three starts in July, however, he has allowed only four runs in 19 innings of work, striking out 17 batters and walking six. Add in the fact that Rogers has reportedly been hitting 94-97 MPH with his fastball, and people are starting to get excited once again about the 26-year-old right-hander.

With his age and health working against him, the Brewers will certainly want to take advantage of any value he can provide at the big league level in short order. Until the Brewers decide what they wish to do with their season, however, Mark Rogers is not a part of that plan. If the organization decides to sell, Rogers could be given a spot in the rotation in September … but only if he can prove consistently effective at Triple-A for the rest of the season.

And that’s a huge if.

    Do you see Jim Henderson getting a call up if the Brewers go into sell mode? Seems like he’s earned a September call up at least.

    I don’t quite understand why the Brewers aren’t retooling by trading away Greinke. Granted, it’s likely they will do so by the end of next week, but the fact of the matter is the farm system is relatively strong at pitching and 100% depleted of position players. So why are they pretending this is such a tough situation?

    It’s not likely we’ll make a run this season. Consequently, we need to put ourselves in a position to be competitive again next year and we can do that with a couple of quality trades that garner some big league talent. Greinke will not be easily replaced, but one of Thornburg, Peralta, Rogers or Fiers can pick up the slack. That means we can get something good in return that will be of immediate help this year and next without a horrific drop off in the rotation. I’m not interested in draft picks or a $100M contract. I’m interested in some 22-24 year old talented guys who are on the cusp.
