Wes Rogers
Name: Gregory Wesley Rogers
Born: Mar 7, 1994 in Greenville, SC
High School: Mann HS, Greenville, S.C.
Junior College: Spartanburg Methodist (S.C.) JC
Ht.: 6'4" / Wt.: 180 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 4th round (113th overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2014 (signed for $360,000)
Rogers was drafted in the 28th round out of high school in 2012 and went undrafted last year in his first year at Spartanburg Methodist. The athletic 6-foot-4, 180-pounder has a long, sleek and high-waisted physique that is similar to Dexter Fowler. He's an exceptional athlete and has to stay in center field to have value because his power is light for the corners. Some see the long-striding Rogers as an above-average defender, with instincts and range to the gaps, while others think he has marginal defensive value. He is at least an average runner who is better under way, with a below-average arm. Rogers has a contact-oriented bat and struck out in just 5.5 percent of his plate appearances, with a 17.3 percent walk rate. He lacks bat speed and doesn't consistently make powerful contact. His value will be tied to his ability to get on base. He is committed to UNC Wilmington.
