Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Saturday, 4-13: Chad "Sharky" Rogers, Pensacola. Coming off a breakout season last year, Sharky is off to another good start. In the Wahoos' 5-2 loss, he went: 6 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K.
For this distinctive, highly acclaimed honor, Rogers was pushed by his batterymate, Tucker Barnhart, who went 3-4, which followed a 2-2 evening in which he drove in the game's only run.
There was also this from MiLPOD veteran Drew Cisco of Dayton: 7 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K. Apparently, his control is as advertised.
Otherwise, it was a dreadful night on the farms. Just dreadful.
