Who is this guy? You gotta love when you go the sportsline.com to look up a player, and that’s the “picture” you find. Rogers was one of many non-roster invites to spring training, and he’s playing like he wants to stay.
I never heard the guy’s name called before he hit the walk-off granny, Big-Papi-Style the other day. A quick check on his stats and – I know it’s only spring training – but he is playing well. He’s tagged 5 hits in just 14 AB’s, including a double and a homerun. He leads the team with 7 RBI, has 2 steals, and has only struck out once.
Even if Rogers can keep up the pace, is there a spot for him? Cora is the back-up/utility infielder and Hinske the projected back-up at first. He is slated to be the starting shortstop in Pawtucket, but keep an eye on him.
