The Rockies have designated 26-year old righty reliever/starter Esmil Rogers for assignment. Rogers pitched in 23 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 0-2 with a 8.06 ERA and a 2.10 WHIP. He has now pitched in 70 games (22 starts) in his four years with the Rockies and he is 8-11 with a 6.77 ERA and a 1.82 WHIP. Rogers has given up 243 hits and he has walked 93 batters in his first 184 2/3 innings for the Rockies. For some reason, call it a hunch, I don’t think he will make it through waivers.
UPDATE: (6/13/2012) – The Rockies have dealt Esmil Rogers to the Cleveland Indians for cash considerations.
