Lecure gets more out of his stuff than anyone I've ever seen though. Rogers could theoretically be better given his fastball cranks a few ticks higher, but I wouldn't say that's an easy ticket to surpassing what Lecure's done. If he ends up in the pen, saying he's demonstrably better than Lecure is practically saying he'll be a closer type arm.
