ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Trevor Rogers, the 6’6 left-handed pitcher, will be present at the 2017 MLB Draft. The first two rounds will be going on Monday night, with 1st round action starting at 5 p.m. on MLB Network.
Rogers is expected to go in the 1st round and some reports show him going as high as the top 10. The long, lanky left-hander does have a fastball that reaches the mid 90s, and that plus his size has garnered a lot of big league attention.
Rogers took a trip to Kansas City this past week to meet with the Royals, and he said it was a great experience.
“Got to meet the whole organization up to the general manager and the scouting director, who will ultimately be making the decision in the end. I got to walk out on the field and put a little Royals uniform on and it was very awesome,” said Rogers
