Marlins Starter Throws Near-Perfect Outing; To Be Activated for Wednesday Start

The Miami Marlins will be getting their promising young starter back on Wednesday. 

Starter Trevor Rogers is expected to activated on Wednesday to start against the Tampa Bay Rays. 

Rogers has had a really rough season this year, posting a 5.85 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 83 strikeouts over 87 innings pitched. He also has an ugly 4-10 record. 

Last season, as a rookie, Rogers put up an impressive 2.64 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 157 strikeouts over 133 innings. He was an All-Star and finished second in Rookie of the Year voting. 

The twenty-four year old showed shades of his 2021 form in his latest rehab start this past Thursday, racking up a phenomenal 12 strikeouts over six innings of no-hit baseball. He also walked just one batter. 
To make things even better, Rogers told reporters that his back "feels the best it has in his professional career." In addition, he said he's in a great place both mentally and physically, a very positive thing to hear.

It would be great to see Trevor Rogers show that last year's phenomenal rookie season was no fluke, and he can get back to dominating at the major league level again. 

Rogers was the 13th overall pick of the 2017 MLB Draft by the Miami Marlins.
