    View Draft Report
    Rogers underwent Tommy John surgery in April 2013 as a senior at New Albany (Ind.) High, but returned to form quickly and made his Louisville debut just 11 months later. He became a midweek starter for the Cardinals soon thereafter and became a key part of their weekend rotation as a sophomore. At 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Rogers has a near ideal pitcher's build. He locates his 87-91 mph fastball, mixes in a slider that flashes average at his best and below-average at other times and a usable changeup. Rogers' mix of three pitches and an ability to locate them makes him a potential back-end starter. He is a draft-eligible sophomore.
