Taylor Rogers News
Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Taylor Rogers (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left middle finger strain Tuesday. Rogers suffered the injury during an appearance in Monday's game, throwing a wild pitch and immediately exiting the game. It's unfortunate timing for the All-Star southpaw, who was expected to be an attractive target at the upcoming trade deadline, given his strong 3.35 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 59:8 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 40 2/3 innings. With Rogers injured, Hansel Robles will be expected to see the lion's share of the save opportunities moving forward, making him a savvy add where he was dropped.
Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Taylor Rogers (finger) left his outing on Monday against the Detroit Tigers with a left middle finger sprain. Rogers threw a wild pitch and immediately walked off the field, so there's a good chance this injury will require a trip to the injured list for the left-hander. The 30-year-old was an All-Star for the first time this year and has a 3.35 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and excellent strikeout (35.5 percent) and walk rates (4.8 percent), but he's recorded just nine saves on a bad Twins team this year. Fantasy managers need to plan for Rogers to be on the shelf for a little while, at the very least. If you're seeking saves, Hansel Robles will likely be the next man up, so run to the waiver wire and pick him up if he's available in your league.
Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Taylor Rogers (hand) exited Monday's game early with an apparent hand injury, according to Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com. Park reports that the ball slipped out of Rogers' hand during a pitch, and he was indicating something on his pitching hand before exiting the game with a trainer. There's no word yet on the injury or severity, but this comes at a poor time for the Twins, as he could be a good trade target for multiple teams. Consider him day-to-day for now, and keep an eye out later tonight for updates on his condition.
Despite the nine saves, fantasy managers who drafted Taylor Rogers were left rather disappointed after 2020. The good news is the ERA was certainly inflated due to a career-high .400 BABIP and career-low 60.3 LOB%. His 2.84 FIP was actually one point lower than in 2019. He also continued to limit the free passes with a lowly 4.4 BB%. The small sample COVID-disrupted season produced a fluke Away-game split where he allowed seven of nine ER after posting a 1.25 ERA on the road in 2019. In fact, you can point to one single road trip where he surrendered four runs in just two games in early August which contributed to almost 50% of his earned runs on the season. Rogers recently agreed to a $6 million deal to avoid arbitration, while teammate Tyler Duffey signed a $2.2 million deal. With Trevor May now with the New York Mets, it appears the roles atop the Minnesota bullpen will remain the same at least to begin the 2021 season. We fully expect positive ratio-regression and numerous save opportunities to lead to a nice bounce-back campaign for the southpaw closer. His current NFBC ADP of 139 feels a tad high, but he could still return value with a secured job and solid ratios.
