Twins LHP Taylor Rogers (finger) has decided to not undergo surgery.
The 30-year-old reliever is opting for rest and recovery. Surgery would've definitely sidelined him for the season, though there's still a chance that he doesn't pitch again this year.

Rogers suffered the injury on Monday and will head to the IL for the first time in his career. It could affect whether or not he gets traded this Friday.
Twins reliever Taylor Rogers leaves with a left middle finger sprain. Rogers threw five pitches before leaving with zero innings pitched.
Hopefully, this was just precautionary for Rogers, but he has struggled in July with a 6.48 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 8 1/3 innings.
Twins reliever Taylor Rogers is drawing significant trade interest ahead of the trade deadline. MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the southpaw is "very popular on the trade market."
Rogers, 30, was selected to the American League All-Star team this summer. He has amassed a 3.59 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and .247 OBA while walking just eight batters and striking out 59. The Twins, who have already traded Nelson Cruz, are an interesting team to watch ahead of the deadline. Beyond Rogers, names to monitor in Minnesota include Jose Berrios and Byron Buxton.
