Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 50 88-90 91 Mild sink down in the zone, plays fairly true overall, below-average movement; above-average control
CB 40 78-79 82 Slurvy shape at bottom of velo band; early action, trackable; higher velo band has more bite, shorter action, sharper
CH 45 83-85   Primary off-speed; deceptive arm speed, generates late tumbling action; poor command, frequently left it over the plate

Rogers is a good competitor who throws strikes, but he can get predictable with his sequencing, often leaning on a formulaic fastball-early, changeup, curveball progression. He lacks a big-league out pitch, though there is some mild organizational interest on account of solid-average control and left-handedness. He profiles as an upper-level arm who offers emergency utility as an up-and-down starter.

Command- 40/45
Control- 55/55
