The Orioles announced today that they will select the contract of lefty Josh Rogers, as Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com tweeted earlier. Righty Cody Carroll was optioned to create space on the active roster.
While he was the least-hyped piece of that swap, Rogers has been stingy during his time at Triple-A Norfolk. He’s carrying a 2.08 ERA through 30 1/3 innings, though he has managed only 5.3 K/9 to go with 2.1 BB/9 and a 41.7% groundball rate. An 11th-round pick in the 2015 draft out of Louisville, Rogers has generally turned in good results while climbing the ladder.
