    Rogers identifies Giants closer Brian Wilson as one of his favorite players, and he's had a Wilson-esque career at Central Florida, with plenty of saves but also bouts of inconsistency. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound southpaw was much more reliable as a junior, throwing more strikes with two pitches that earn 55 grades from scouts. He has an 88-92 mph fastball with lift that he commands much better than he did in the past, and a curveball he can bury or throw for strikes. Rogers has flashed a changeup, and some scouts would love to see him give starting a chance because his arm is clean and he repeats his delivery.
