    "Sharky" Rogers

    Can some give me what his pitching arsenal is, and how he projects as a major leaguer?

    Thanks.

    I fully expect to see that he has a hammerhead curve, a fastball with teeth, and a slider with a bite.

    That combination of pitches has been successful for eons. And I am pretty certain that he is aggressive on both sides of the plate and really pounds the strike zone.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Sorry to derail things earlier. This is what Doug has for a write up:
    http://redsminorleagues.com/2012/10/...ts-list-11-15/

    The Good: He pounds the bottom of the strikezone and generates a high rate of groundballs with an above-average fastball. He can use his above-average slider as an out pitch when he needs a strikeout. While I didn’t see it while he was in Bakersfield, he was throwing a third pitch while in Pensacola leaving open the chance he can remain a starter.

    Needs to work on: Developing a third pitch better in order to remain a starter.

    Leadoff hitter strikes out on 3 pitches. On his way to dugout, he tells the next hitter....

    He's fastball-slider, if I remember correctly. Supposedly a groundball guy. In the mold of Zach Stewart with not quite the same velocity.

    In other words, he's a future Cy Young winner. Got it.

    Like his fb. Seems to have that "heavy" quality that sinks a bit and helps keep it in the park. I see a very real possibility he takes Leake's place eventually as Mike starts to get expensive. Corcino bust insurance.

    E.r.a. now down to 1.51 at Pensacola. WHIP at 0.90. Good control.

    What's it going to take for "Sharky" to be taken seriously?

    Define "seriously". I had him ranked 10th in the system coming into the 2013 season.

    And just so we are correct, his ERA went UP to 1.51 yesterday after allowing a run in 5 innings.

    I had him higher than 10th.

    Well how serious does someone need to take him to be "taken seriously" if being top 10 isn't serious?

    Seriously?

    Doug, my "seriously" comment wasn't directed at you.

    Reds don't have him even listed on their website in their top 20 prospects.
    http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/mlb/p...d=cin#list=cin

    Probably an oversight, or simply pushing their other prospects. But certainly Rogers is top 10. And with Cingrani with the major league club, based on Rogers numbers right now, he'd have to be in the top 3 prospects "closest to the majors", wouldn't you think? I don't include veteran pickups like Galarraga or Hessman or retreads. I'm talking true Reds developed prospects.
