Esmil Rogers outrighted to Triple-A

(5/24/2014) Blue Jays reliever Esmil Rogers cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo Saturday. He is off the team's 40-man roster.  

Report: Blue Jays DFA Esmil Rogers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) The Blue Jays have cut ties with reliever Esmil Rogers to make room for fellow pitcher Liam Hendriks, per SB Nation. The former has been designated for assignment.

Rogers has deteriorated after a decent 2013. He owns a 6.97 ERA and has given up 28 hits, including five home runs, in 20 2/3 innings. He has walked seven and fanned 21.

The disenchantment with Rogers confirms a disaster in the trade that brought him from Cleveland for productive and versatile Mike Aviles and Yan Gomes, who has emerged as one of the better offensive catchers in the game.


Blue Jays to open year with eight-man bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) The Blue Jays announced Wednesday they will open the season with an eight-man bullpen. The bullpen will include closer Casey Janssen, Sergio Santos, Steve Delabar, Brett Cecil, Aaron Loup, Todd Redmond, Esmil Rogers and Jeremy Jeffress.

Esmil Rogers hanging on to hopes for roster spot


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Esmil Rogers took a step forward in his quest to land a roster spot Thursday with a strong performance as a starter against a Phillies lineup boasting several starters.

Rogers lowered his spring ERA to 5.27 by pitching 4 2/3 innings and giving up just one run on five hits. He walked one and fanned six. He has had his strikeout pitches working throughout the spring, but has struggled to keep runs off the board.


Esmil Rogers strikes out six in rocky outing Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Blue Jays starting pitcher Esmil Rogers continued his quest to win a spot in the team's rotation Thursday against the Astros. Unfortunately, it was not his best effort.

Rogers was tagged for a spring-high four runs on five hits and two walks in three innings. The only bright spot was his spring-high six strikeouts. 

After giving up two runs on a Cesar Izturis single in the second inning, Rogers then served up back-to-back home runs to Carlos Correa and Jon Singleton to begin the third inning.

Rogers' ERA jumped from 4.50 to 7.00. He does have 12 strikeouts in nine innings, with 10 coming in his last two starts.


Esmil Rogers earns first start of the spring


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Esmil Rogers got his first start of the spring on Sunday against the Yankees.

Rogers surrendered a solo home run to Jose Bautista in the opening frame for his only blemish of the day. He allowed one run on three hits and no walks while striking out one over two innings of work. He has allowed three runs over three innings this spring.

Esmil Rogers, Dustin McGowan get first spring chances


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) The Blue Jays enter spring training with a spot open in their rotation, and a pair of contenders received their first cracks at the job in Thursday's game against the Phillies.

Esmil Rogers, who posted a 4.77 ERA in 137 2/3 innings for the Blue Jays last year, got the first turn. Unfortunately, he struggled, as he was tagged for two earned runs in one inning of work. He allowed one hit, a two-run home run following a walk, while adding one strikeout.

Rogers was followed out of the bullpen by Dustin McGowan, who appeared in 25 games a year ago, all as a reliever. He tossed one scoreless inning, retiring all three batters faced in order.

According to the Toronto Star, neither Rogers nor McGowan is considered a frontrunner for the final rotation spot, though both could wind up in the bullpen.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

It's Rogers' first year of arbitration eligibility. He went 5-9 with a 4.77 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 96:44 K:BB ratio in 137 2/3 innings last season.


Blue Jays tender contracts to three


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) The Blue Jays tendered contracts to three players Monday, ahead of the league-imposed deadline. The team opted to bring back pitchers Esmil Rogers and Brett Cecil, along with outfielder Colby Rasmus, and their salaries will be determined based on the results of the arbitration process if contracts cannot be agreed to ahead of time. 

Esmil Rogers takes loss in Baltimore


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2013) Blue Jays starting pitcher Esmil Rogers made his final appearance of the season Wednesday in Baltimore. Toronto gave him a 3-0 lead after the top of the third inning, but Rogers couldn't hold it in the loss.

Rogers fell to 5-9 on the season as he allowed six earned runs on eight hits and a walk over 4 1/3 innings in the loss. He threw 76 pitches before getting pulled in favor of Aaron Loup. Rogers allowed two homers and struck out two batters. His ERA finishes at 4.77 on the year for Toronto.

Rogers finished with a record under .500 on the season with a so-so ERA. He is not guaranteed to have a rotation spot next season. Rogers will not make another start this year.

Esmil Rogers walks five in short outing


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2013) Blue Jays pitcher Esmil Rogers was pulled after just 2 1/3 innings in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Red Sox, giving up two earned runs on three hits and five walks while striking out two.

Rogers threw just 29 of his 60 pitches for strikes, but he came into the game having not walked more than two batters in any of his previous eight starts. He takes a 5-8 record, 4.52 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 94:43 K:BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Orioles.


Esmil Rogers take no-decision in quality start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2013) Blue Jays starting pitcher Esmil Rogers tossed a quality start Saturday against the Orioles, but he settled for a no-decision in a 4-3 win.

Rogers limited the Orioles to three runs in six innings of work, but actually exited the game in line for a loss. The Blue Jays' offense rallied for the win, but not until the seventh inning, so Rogers was unable to extend his winning streak to three starts.

Rogers struck out seven and walked two, while allowing five hits. He threw 59 of 101 pitches for strikes in the game. He remains 5-7 in the season, while his ERA rose ever so slightly to 4.47.

Rogers' next start is set for Friday against the Red Sox.


Esmil Rogers excels in fifth win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2013) Blue Jays pitcher Esmil Rogers pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday, giving up just three hits and a walk while striking out four in his team's 2-0 win over the Twins.

Rogers is on quite a roll after allowing just one hit in 6 1/3 scoreless innings in his last start, which was also a win. He takes a 5-7 record, 4.46 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 85:36 K:BB ratio into Friday's scheduled matchup with the Orioles.


Esmil Rogers outstanding in win


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2013) Blue Jays starting pitcher Esmil Rogers was fantastic Monday afternoon in Arizona. Rogers allowed just one hit over 6 1/3 outstanding innings for the win.

Rogers improved to 4-7 on the season as he shut out the Diamondbacks over 83 pitches and 6 1/3 innings. He walked one batter and struck out five on the excellent performance. His ERA is now at 4.76.

The 28-year-old Rogers couldn't finish four innings his last time out. He was outstanding Monday, but hasn't shown that consistently for Toronto. He makes his next start Sunday at Minnesota.

Esmil Rogers' winless streak reaches 11 starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) Blue Jays starting pitcher Esmil Rogers ended up with a no-decision Tuesday after he couldn't hold a four-run lead during the first game of a doubleheader against the Yankees. The right-hander was charged with four runs on seven hits and two walks, while striking out four in five-plus innings.

Rogers was leading 4-0 before Robinson Cano cut the deficit to one with a three-run homer in the third inning. Rogers was lifted in the sixth inning after allowing a leadoff single to Alex Rodriguez. Rogers was no longer in line to win once Rodriguez scored on Chris Stewart's go-ahead, three-run homer with two outs.

Rogers is winless in his last 11 starts (0-5), but he will look to change his fortunes next time out. With Tuesday's doubleheader, Rogers will pitch either Sunday at Houston or Monday against the Yankees depending on what the Blue Jays decide to do with their rotation.


Blue Jays retool rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2013) Blue Jays starter Esmil Rogers will start the first game of a doubleheader Tuesday against the Yankees. Rogers will be on six days' rest. Mark Buehrle will start the second game of the doubleheader, according to MLB.com.

R.A. Dickey will start Wednesday and J.A. Happ Thursday. Todd Redmond will start Friday's series against the Astros in Houston.

Esmil Rogers quality in return to rotation


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2013) Blue Jays starter Esmil Rogers returned to the starting rotation Wednesday night at home against Boston in place of injured starter Josh Johnson. Rogers, who could remain in the rotation going forward, recorded a quality start despite the bullpen blowing his victory.

Rogers threw 98 pitches over six strong innings as he allowed only one earned run coming in on a David Ortiz solo homer in the sixth. Rogers allowed five hits and walked a batter with six strikeouts. His record remained at 3-7 on the year with a 4.91 ERA, however, as Brett Cecil allowed a two-run homer to Mike Napoli to tie the score in the ninth.

Rogers may remain in Johnson's rotation spot going forward, though nothing is set in stone at the moment. Manager John Gibbons does not yet have Rogers listed with another start. If he does get another, it would likely come Tuesday at the Yankees.

Esmil Rogers given the nod for Wednesday


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2013) The Blue Jays will give the ball to Esmil Rogers to start in Josh Johnson's place Wednesday against Boston, the National Post reports following Tuesday's game. Thad Weber will not get the start. 

Rogers was recently demoted from the starting rotation. He was the obvious choice to return to starting, though he's 3-7 on the season with Toronto with a 5.12 ERA. He's 2-5 with a 5.76 ERA over his last 12 starts. 


Blue Jays have options for Wed. start


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Weber, who is 0-1 this season over four appearances for Toronto with a 2.25, has made 15 appearances and 12 starts for Triple-A Buffalo this season. He's 5-3 with a 2.74 ERA over his last 10 outings with 54 Ks over 65 2/3 innings. 

Rogers was recently demoted from the starting rotation. He would be the obvious choice to return to starting, though he's 3-7 on the season with Toronto with a 5.12 ERA. He's 2-5 with a 5.76 ERA over his last 12 starts. 


Esmil Rogers removed from rotation


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Esmil Rogers serves up three homers vs. A's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Esmil Rogers struggles in defeat


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Rogers fell to 3-5 on the season as he allowed eight runs -- six earned -- on nine hits and three walks over 4 1/3 innings. He struck out three batters and threw 97 pitches. Rogers' ERA is now at 4.16 after the losing performance Monday.

The Blue Jays' starter scattered 10 hits in his last outing but gave up just two runs over seven innings. He wasn't as lucky this time around. Rogers hasn't won since June 18 and has three losses since that date. He makes his next scheduled start on Saturday at the Angels.

Esmil Rogers settles for no-decision


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2013) Toronto starter Esmil Rogers was sharp against the Dodgers from Rogers Centre Wednesday night. Rogers gave up a run apiece in the second and third innings and didn't allow another to cross on his outing.

Rogers took a no-decision as the game remained tied at two after he left. Still, he managed to scatter 10 hits and a walk over seven strong frames to give up just two earned. He struck out four batters and threw 104 pitches. Rogers lowered his ERA to 3.74 in the process.

The 27-year-old starter has been solid for the Blue Jays since joining the rotation. He's made 10 starts and has been giving the team a good chance to win. That said, his last victory was way back on June 18 against Colorado as his record remains 3-4 after the no-decision. Rogers next takes the mound on Monday at Oakland.
