Rogers could provide boost to Brewers rotation
Pitchers went 3-1 in seven starts last year
PHOENIX — A healthy Mark Rogers could be a big boost to a Milwaukee Brewers rotation that has three openings in spring training.
Rogers, a 2004 first-round pick, had right wrist surgery in 2011. He missed the entire 2007-08 seasons with two shoulder operations.
Rogers was healthy last season and went 3-1 with a 3.92 ERA in seven starts when he was called up in late July to replace Zack Greinke, who was traded to the Los Angeles Angels.
With 2012 starters Greinke, Shaun Marcum and Randy Wolf gone, the Brewers’ rotation is fronted by Yovani Gallardo and Marco Estrada, but the competition is wide open after that.
