Tyler Rogers allowed five earned runs (six total) on three hits in one inning of work on Thursday.
I feel bad for those in roto leagues that had Rogers active on Thursday, if anyone did. These types of outings are detrimental for team splits. It's tough to own Rogers at this point, as he's been very inconsistent in the early going this season.
Tyler Rogers recorded in the win in Wednesday's walk-off victory over the Padres.
Rogers allowed just one walk in his one inning pitched. After allowing four earned runs in 2/3 innings on Opening Day, he's bounced back nicely with three straight shutout appearances spanning 2.1 innings.
Tyler Rogers was roughed up by the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing four runs on three hits while recording just two outs.
It's a killer for anyone who started Rogers hoping he could snag some saves early on this season. The reliever came into the game when it was tied in the seventh, which speak to manager Gabe Kapler's confidence in him, but the 29-year-old couldn't solve a formidable Dodgers lineup. It remains up in the air who will get the first save chance for San Francisco this year.
Giants manager Gabe Kapler says Tyler Rogers is an option to close games this seaosn.
San Francisco lacks a true closer, though lefty Tony Watson is viewed as the favorite. Rogers is a submarine pitcher who doesn't have typical closer "stuff." The 29-year-old debuted in the majors last season, posting a 1.02 ERA across 17 appearances. It remains likely that Kapler uses a committee approach to saves this summer.
