BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Rogers was once a highly regarded prospect in Colorado's system, but he never managed to find the kind of success expected of him in the rotation. He finally moved to the bullpen full time last year, and after his midseason trade to Cleveland he began to thrive. Rogers has always been more of a control than a command guy, and in the pen, where he can work in short bursts, he doesn't have to worry about being as fine with his pitches or about giving hitters different looks. He was pitching in favorable low-leverage situations, sure, and he may not have the command to be a seventh- or eighth-inning guy, but he definitely has the stuff to be a solid reliever if he can just keeps the walks at a reasonable rate.
2012 Rogers was ineffective working mostly out of the bullpen in 2010, so the Rockies moved him to the rotation, where he added "can't throw strikes or keep the ball in the park" to his repertoire. The organization has stressed the importance of developing pitchers from within so that they don't have to adjust when moving from wherever they were to a less forgiving environment. It is a nice theory but one that doesn't apply to Rogers, against whom opponents have hit .356/.418/.572 at Coors Field. Rogers has a strong arm, but unless he figures out how to pitch at his home park, that won't be enough to keep him employed.
2011 A lanky righty converted from shortstop upon signing out of the Dominican, Rogers was shuffled between the major-league bullpen, rotation, and Triple-A throughout 2010, never spending more than a month in one place, so its no wonder that he never seemed to settle down. Bad luck on balls in play as well as struggles in his hitter-friendly home ballparks and against left-handed batters contributed to his poor showing. Hes still an option at the back of the major-league rotation, but it would be to his benefit to be left alone to work things out as a Triple-A starter before the team starts jerking him around again. Ironically, his ultimate destiny could be the role of a Ramiro Mendoza-like utility pitcher.
2010 A converted shortstop, Rogers whips surprising mid-90s heat and a good curve out of his slight frame, and managed to work his way up to a major-league cup of coffee while still just learning how to pitch. He exhibited terrific command at Tulsa but struggled somewhat in the PCL, so hes not a finished product. Hes close, though, and should became an inexpensive back-end rotation option sooner rather than later.
2009 Rogers' numbers as a 22-year-old in the California League are good, but hardly eye-popping. There are extenuating circumstances, as the guy is just learning how to pitch. A converted shortstop, Rogers entered the year with just 34 games of professional mound experience, but more than held his own thanks to a low-90s fastball and surprisingly advanced curve. The Rockies think he's one of the best sleepers in the system.
2008 Converted infielder Esmil Rogers held his own in the Sally League in his first full season of pitching.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone's talking about all the possibilities for the 5th Blue Jays starter, but no one seems to be talking up me. Why not, I'm healthy again.
(Kyle Drabek from TheT.O.dog)
It's probably got something to do with your walk rates over your career. You've pitched in MLB for parts of four seasons and have had a BB% over 10 in three of them. That being said, I'm not a big Esmil Rogers fan and I don't trust Brandon Morrow at all. It's likely you and Sean Nolin will be in the mix. (Mauricio Rubio)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does a pitcher with a delivery like Esmil Rogers who seems to put a lot of strain on his arm cause a lot of concern about his durability? How would you try to prevent an injury for a pitcher like Rogers if your a manager or in the front office?
(Alex from Toronto)
Yes, he scares the crap out of me. I don't think you can prevent it. I think you let him rip it until it rips off. (Jason Parks)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 20 team dynasty league, would you drop Jacob Turner, Esmil Rogers, or Nate Eovaldi when Erasmo becomes active?
(Al from NC)
Esmil. (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)Greetings from the land of Rush. Who should I use as my closer this year? If it isn't Janssen or Santos, which other live arm in my pen should I be looking at?
(John Gibbons from Toronto, Ontario)
I'm a big Santos fan and thought he'd be effective in the role last year, but obviously health is a concern. Jason Collette and I were just discussing this offline this morning, and he's bullish on Steve Delabar and Esmil Rogers as deep sleepers should neither of the top two options be able to ring the bell. I'd like to say those were my great suggestions but I can't steal Jason's thunder. (Cory Schwartz)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)What about Esmil Rogers this year? I know it's just one game but he looked filthy. I've heard his stuff is not that far from Ubaldo, or is that crazy talk?
(Rob from Alaska)
Rogers may look good, but that's probably crazy talk. He's more of a back-end option. (Ben Lindbergh)
