Lefty Josh Rogers had built a solid career since being drafted by the Yankees in the 11th round of the 2015 draft.  In 44 career minor league games, 39 starts, he struck out 211 batters in 241 1.3 innings and has held opponents to a .242 batting average against.

This past season he started the year off in Tampa where he went 4-3 with a 2.22 ERA in eight starts, striking out 51 batters in 52 2/3 innings pitched.  He earned a promotion to Trenton on May 26 and in his first taste of Double-A he started seven games for the Thunder where he was 4-2 with a 4.62 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 39 innings pitched.

Rogers’ season ended early when on July 18 he was placed on the disabled list with left-elbow soreness.  He ended up having surgery to have a bone spur removed and is expected to be back for Spring Training.
