Brewers | Mark Rogers struggling with command, velocity
Milwaukee Brewers SP Mark Rogers (shoulder) is struggling to regain his command and velocity during a minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Huntsville after he had shoulder issues in spring training. He has given up six hits, six walks and four runs in 3 2/3 relief innings over three appearances while striking out only one. "Despite those numbers, he has improved," said assistant general manager Gord Ash. "As long as we're seeing improvement, we're OK." Rogers was in the high 80s with his fastball this spring after normally sitting in the mid 90s. He has occasionally hit 93 mph at Huntsville, but he's been very inconsistent. Rogers will stay with Huntsville for the time being, and he's pitching in relief because that's the role he'll be used in with the Brewers.
