Brewers Outright Mark Rogers

We'll keep track of tonight's outright assignments here..

  • The Brewers announced that they have outrighted Mark Rogers off of their 40-man roster, setting him up for minor league free agency. The former No. 5 overall pick has had injury trouble for some time and hasn't been able to put it all together. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com (Twitter link) says that Rogers has been healthy as of late and even hit 93 mph in his last start for the club's high-A affiliate, but wasn't being considered for a September call-up. However, assistant GM Gord Ash says the door isn't completely closed to a return (link). Rogers was ranked as a top 100 prospect by Baseball America in 2005 and 2006.
