Top Jake Rogers News

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Snaps out of slump

    Rogers went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Monday's 7-1 win over the Rays.

    Rogers came into the contest having gone 0-for-16 across his previous seven games, so the hits were much needed, though he's still batting just .119 overall in what's been a rough start to the year. The backstop is also still sitting on just one home run for the season, and he'll need to find his power stroke soon to make a fantasy impact and hold off Carson Kelly for playing time.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Struggles continue Saturday

    Rogers went 0-for-2 with a strikeout in Saturday's loss to the Twins and is now batting just .086 this season.

    Rogers is scuffling, and he's only delivered one home run so far with a nearly 40 percent strikeout rate. The 29-year-old has never been a great contact hitter at the MLB level, so if he's not providing power, his fantasy value is pretty minimal. Rogers is also ceding more playing time behind the plate to Carson Kelly, as the former has appeared in 13 games so far and the latter has made 16 appearances.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Back on bench Thursday

    Rogers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Rogers had started behind the dish in both of the Tigers' last two games, but he'll hit the bench for the series finale while Carson Kelly handles catching duties for Detroit. The two backstops have been deployed in a timeshare this season, with Kelly drawing 10 starts at catcher compared to Rogers' nine.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Sitting for second straight game

    Rogers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Rogers is on the bench for the second day in a row and the fourth time in six games, with each of those absences coming against right-handed pitching. At least for the time being, he may have moved into the smaller side of a timeshare with Carson Kelly behind the dish.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Sitting out Saturday

    Rogers is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Athletics.

    Carson Kelly will draw the start at catcher and bat ninth Saturday against Oakland right-hander Paul Blackburn. Rogers has struggled at the plate to start the season, posting just one hit and one walk while striking out 10 times over 16 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Sits out first game Thursday

    Rogers is not in the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets.

    Carson Kelly will start behind the plate in the opening game of the day, serving as a battery mate for Casey Mize. Rogers should be back behind the plate for the second game, which will feature Matt Manning on the hill for Detroit.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Rogers is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Mets.

    Carson Kelly is receiving a second straight start at catcher, although Rogers was in the designated hitter spot for Monday's game. Rogers is 1-for-10 with six strikeouts in his first three tilts this season, although that one hit was a home run.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Will sit Saturday

    Rogers is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox.

    Rogers was the Opening Day catcher for Detroit on Thursday, when he went 0-for-4 with one strikeout. Carson Kelly will draw the start behind the plate and bat seventh against White Sox right-hander Michael Soroka.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Could see time at DH

    Rogers could see some time at DH this year on days that Carson Kelly starts behind the plate, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    With Detroit only carrying two catchers on the roster, conventional wisdom would suggest that one of Rogers or Kelly would always be on the bench to provide depth if needed. However, manager A.J. Hinch suggested that both backstops could play at the same time, particularly against left-handed pitchers. This would be a boon for Rogers, who is expected to cede a decent amount of playing time to Kelly behind the dish.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: May cede playing time

    Carson Kelly is expected to play often this season, per Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic, which could cut into Rogers' role.

    Rogers should still see the majority of the playing time behind the plate after clubbing 21 home runs a season ago, but he may be at risk of sitting fairly regularly, especially if Kelly plays well. Even in something of a timeshare, Rogers offers fantasy upside due to his power potential, though he's unlikely to contribute much in the batting average category given his free-swinging approach.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Hits first spring home run

    Rogers went 2-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.

    The home run was the first for Rogers this spring, and he's now batting .250 with a robust .931 OPS in Grapefruit League play. Rogers is locked in as Detroit's starting catcher, and after hitting 21 long balls last year, there's some fantasy upside due to power potential. However, he also will likely continue to have a low batting average and high strikeout rate as an all-or-nothing type slugger.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Avoids arbitration

    Rogers and the Tigers agreed to a one-year, $1.7 million deal Thursday to avoid arbitration, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    The 28-year-old backstop slashed .221/.286/.444 with 21 home runs and a 32.3 percent strikeout rate in 107 games last year. He is a career .205 hitter, but Rogers grades out well as a defensive catcher, so he should continue to play a sizable role for the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: On bench Saturday

    Rogers is not in the lineup Saturday against the Guardians.

    Rogers will sit in the penultimate game of the season after going 2-for-4 against the Guardians on Friday. Barring an appearance off the bench, he will finish with a slash line of .297/.531/.849 and five home runs in September. Carson Kelly will start behind the plate and bat ninth.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Pops 21st home run

    Rogers went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's suspended game against the Royals, which resumed Thursday.

    Rogers hit his 21st home run of the season in the eighth inning as he continues to increase his career-best total. He came into the year with 10 total long balls in his first two MLB campaigns. Heading into 2024, Rogers has established some fantasy value due to his power potential and his role as Detroit's top catcher, though his upside is capped due to his high strikeout rate and perennially low batting average.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Sitting Thursday

    Rogers isn't in the Tigers' lineup Thursday against Kansas City.

    Rogers will get a breather Thursday after going 1-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in his previous game. Carson Kelly will get the nod behind the dish and bat eighth while Rogers is out.

  • Tigers' Jake Rogers: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Rogers is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's tilt versus the Royals, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    He has now yielded to Carson Kelly in four of the last six contests. September has been one of Rogers' best offensive months to this point, as he's put up an .810 OPS with four home runs.
