GREAT NEWS today reported by Adam McCalvy. 2004 1st round pick Mark Rogers who has not pitched in a game in two years because of various shoulder injuries faced live hitters this week in Maryvale. Ken Macha told reporters Mark looked "a little tentative" but its just damn good news to hear Rogers threw off a mound to batters.
Being a huge fan of Mark's since we drafted him on potential alone, it's great to hear he is progressing. Hopefully he can continue to throw with no sidetracks, if he can keep progressing he could be a wild card for this teams pitching staff at some point maybe not this year but next. I'm sure he will start off the year at one of the Brewers A ball clubs and then possibly move up to AA or AAA depending on how well he feels and is throwing.
