Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 60 91-94 95 Short stature and D&D mechanics cause for straight FB plane; has some run/sink when down in the zone; likes to elevate for strike three; command was good in both outing; worked it east and west.
CB 55 79-82 84 Works well off his FB; good bite; two-plane break; shows the ability to drop it for strikes; can get a little loopy when left up; throws it with confidence.

Rogers pitched well in back-to-back games, showing some poise under pressure (closed both games) and maintaining his velocity well in the 2nd outing. The fastball isn't huge, but it's heavy and he commanded it well. The ceiling here isn't crazy, but he could become an up-and-down bullpen when can have some value.
