Mariners released RHP Mark Rogers.

Rogers posted a 3.86 ERA and 5/7 K/BB ratio over his first seven innings at Triple-A Tacoma. The 28-year-old has a long history of injuries but should get another shot somewhere as long as he's healthy.

Mariners signed RHP Mark Rogers to a minor league contract.

It's not clear whether the deal includes an invitation to spring training, but it would be a surprise if it didn't. Rogers was limited to just 22 2/3 rehab innings last season while battling shoulder and arm issues. He's always going to be injury-prone but has a nice arm and is worth a no-risk gamble.

Mark Rogers (arm) will make his first start with the Bravos de Margarita in the Venezuelan Winter League next week.

Rogers was limited to just 22 2/3 rehab innings this season while battling shoulder and arm issues. He's a minor league free agent but hasn't ruled out re-signing with the Brewers. "We’re in the process of fielding free-agent offers," Rogers' agent, Ivan Hand, said. "There’s a lot of interest in him based on (his) 2012 (performance) with the Brewers. He’s healthy now and ready to show what he can do."

Brewers sent RHP Mark Rogers outright to Class-A Brevard County.

Rogers had been on a rehab assignment in the minor leagues but was removed from the 40-man roster on Saturday. Rogers will be a minor league free agent this offseason.

Mark Rogers (shoulder, arm) will begin a rehab assignment with the Brewers' rookie-level team in Arizona Wednesday.

Rogers began the season on the DL with shoulder issues and has been shut down since early May after he felt tingling in his right arm during a rehab appearance. It's totally up in the air as to when he'll be ready to return.

Brewers transferred RHP Mark Rogers from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move was made in order to clear 40-man roster space for Donovan Hand. Rogers remains shut down after feeling tingling in his right arm during a rehab appearance earlier this month. He's out indefinitely.

Mark Rogers (shoulder) has been pulled from his minor league rehab assignment.

Rogers had a rough 11.12 ERA and 1/8 K/BB ratio in 5 2/3 innings with Double-A Huntsville and left his most recent appearance on Tuesday due to tingling in his right arm. The 27-year-old has a long injury history and began the season on the disabled list with what was termed as right shoulder instability. He has been sent back to Phoenix for further testing, after which we should know more about the next step.

Mark Rogers (shoulder) left a rehab appearance with Double-A Huntsville on Tuesday after nine pitches due to "tingling" in his right arm.

The Brewers aren't sure what's wrong with Rogers yet, but, given his injury history, a pessimistic view is reasonable. "We're still working our way through what to do with him next," said Brewers assistant GM Gord Ash said.
Wed, May 8, 2013 09:59:00 PM

Mark Rogers (shoulder) has allowed six hits, six walks and four runs in 3 2/3 innings over three relief appearances during his rehab assignment with Double-A Huntsville.

"Despite those numbers, he has improved," said Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash. "As long as we're seeing improvement, we're OK." Ash added that Rogers has touched 93 mph with his fastball but has not pitched consistently at that level. The right-hander will remain at Huntsville for a while longer. His 30-day rehab window runs out on May 23, and it seems like he'll use most of that time.

Mark Rogers (shoulder) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday at Double-A Huntsville.

Rogers opened the 2013 regular season on the 15-day disabled list because of right shoulder instability. The 27-year-old should be ready by the end of this month.

Mark Rogers (shoulder) is making the transition to the bullpen.

Rogers struggled this spring and began the season on the disabled list due to what was termed as right shoulder instability. He topped out at 92 mph on his fastball during a recent start in extended spring training and the Brewers are hopeful that his velocity will bounce back in shorter bursts. The 27-year-old is out of options, so he will eventually have to be added to the major league roster or exposed to waivers.
Wed, Apr 10, 2013 01:02:00 PM

Brewers placed RHP Mark Rogers on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 25, with right shoulder instability.

Rogers has a 7.00 ERA in nine innings this spring and has showed diminished velocity, so he'll work on building his arm strength for the time being. The 27-year-old right-hander is out of options, so something will have to give eventually.
Tue, Mar 26, 2013 02:36:00 PM

Mark Rogers is expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list when the regular season begins.

Rogers has displayed diminished velocity this spring and the Brewers want him to work on building arm strength either at extended spring training or in the minor leagues. Rogers has a 7.00 ERA in nine spring innings.
Mon, Mar 25, 2013 03:10:00 PM

Mark Rogers threw live batting practice Tuesday and hopes to return to game action soon.

Rogers has an awful 7.51 ERA and 1/10 K/BB ratio over six innings of work this spring and has also shown diminished velocity, so the Brewers have been trying to get him back on track. The 27-year-old right-hander is out of options, so the Brewers could be faced with a tough decision soon.
