Tonight, 2004 1st round pick Mark Rogers will finally make his first major league start. Because of two shoulder surgeries it is probably at least 1 or maybe even 2 years later than most would have thought. But, he worked hard made it all the way back and has had his second consecutive healthy season. He still throws in the mid to upper 90's. To me this is a very big deal, Rogers making this start tonight at Miller Park. When a team is starved for young starting pitching that can throw hard like the Brewers are, seeing a guy they drafted and developed finally get there after some adversities, it is pretty cool. Rogers will also make a start vs the Mets in New York next week. It sure would give the Brewers and fan base some hope for the pitching going into 2011 if Rogers can have two good outings to end a down 2010 season. Congrats Mark, go get em now!
