Taylor Rogers News
San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Taylor Rogers succeeded in getting the final out of a one-run game against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday. Rogers was tasked with getting the Giants out of a two-out, runner-on-first situation after Camilo Doval gave up four runs in a disastrous outing. Fortunately, Rogers was up to the task. He now has a 3.06 ERA and 1.16 WHIP, and could be the next man up for saves given Doval's recent struggles. The Giants bullpen has a lot of good options, though, so it wouldn't be a given that Rogers would assume the closer role. It is a situation to keep an eye on for fantasy managers looking to shore up their bullpens.
San Francisco Giants reliever Taylor Rogers recorded his first save of the season in the Giants' 5-2 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Rogers inherited two runners in the 11th inning with one out and caught Jazz Chisholm looking on strikes, followed by a hit batsman and ground out to complete the save. The 32-year-old has been struggling since the beginning of the season despite a small sample size, but Wednesday's outing is a step in the right direction. In 4 2/3 innings of work, Rogers owns a horrid 13.50 ERA, 2.36 WHIP, with three strikeouts. The Colorado native hasn't had enough opportunities to make amends for his poor performance on the mound, but it's still early on the season and Rogers has plenty of time to find his groove. In 2022, the southpaw posted a 4.76 ERA (3.31 FIP), 1.181 WHIP, and a 30.7% strikeout rate across 64 1/3 innings.
San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Taylor Rogers was asked to take the mound in the ninth inning during Sunday's game against the Kansas City Royals. The left-hander was able to get through all three of the batters he faced and earn his first save of the season. Normally, Camilo Doval is the primary closer, but he received the day off after struggling during his last outing. The expectation is that Doval will remain the team's closer. However, it wouldn't be shocking to see Rogers get a few more chances whenever Doval isn't available.
New San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Taylor Rogers might struggle to log saves at the rate he did this past season. Rogers spent most of the 2022 season with the San Diego Padres before being dealt to the Milwaukee Brewers in the Josh Hader trade. Overall, Rogers pitched to a 4.76 ERA, a 3.31 FIP, 84 strikeouts, and 19 walks in 64.1 innings spanning 66 appearances. Most crucially for fantasy managers, the veteran logged 31 saves, while also registering four holds and four pitcher wins. Despite the save numbers and a FIP that suggested he was much better than his ERA would indicate, Rogers looks like he will have more value in saves+holds leagues this coming season as opposed to more standard-scoring fantasy leagues. That's in part due to Camilo Doval's emergence as San Francisco's primary closer last year. The Giants aren't hurting for ancillary save options either, with John Brebbia, Scott Alexander, and Taylor's twin brother Tyler Rogers on hand as late-inning options. If Doval struggles, Taylor Rogers could potentially find himself pitching in the ninth inning more often, but as of right now, he looks more like a handcuff option for fantasy managers.
