Scouting Report: Rogers checks a lot of the usual boxes for potential first-round picks while also checking some unusual ones. One of the oldest prep players in the class, Rogers attends the same school that produced big leaguers such as Shane Andrews, Paxton Crawford and more recently Cody Ross. He’s a twin whose family members have very different bodies to Rogers’ wide-shouldered, lean frame, listed at 6-foot-6, 185 pounds last summer in the Area Code Games. One of the top performers in Long Beach last summer, Rogers pumped effortless gas up to 95 mph to go with a slider with intriguing shape and action. He’s been inconsistent against inferior competition all spring, essentially dominating with a fastball around 88-90 mph coming in from his low three-quarters slot that evokes Andrew Miller. When he needs it, he’s shown the ability to go get 93-94 mph heat at will. He commands the fastball very well for his experience level. Rogers’ sweepy 10-to-4 slider can be a swing-and-miss pitch, though its shape gets loopier when he’s working to locate it, and he’ll toy with an effective changeup as well. Already 19, Rogers is old for the class but has the pitcher’s body and loose arm scouts crave. He’s committed to Texas Tech.
