Detroit Tigers catcher Jake Rogers is not in the starting lineup Thursday against the Seattle Mariners. Rogers has impressed over his first 12 big league games, smashing four home runs and collecting seven RBI since being called up. John Hicks will be behind the plate and bat eighth against right-hander Matt Wisler. He can be safely ignored in all formats.
Detroit Tigers catching prospect Jake Rogers has been promoted to Triple-A. The Tigers' eighth-ranked prospect raked to a tune of a .302/.429/.535 slash line to go along with five home runs, 17 runs, and 21 RBI with the Erie SeaWolves. He is also one of the best defensive catchers in the minor leagues. While he may not see the field until late 2019 or early 2020, he could very well be worth the wait. Dynasty league owners may want to take notice.
