Rogers: So Far, So Good
Rodgers, a Toronto Blue Jays cast-off, continues to impress. First in spot relief, and now with a solid start.
“Unbelievable; an unbelievable opportunity,” Rogers said. “When you come in the first inning and they got five right away, I just told myself try to throw five or six innings and win the game.”
“This is what we’ve seen from him,” Girardi said. “I just wasn’t sure how much he would be able to give us, and I think we were pretty conscious of watching his stuff continue to be sharp as his pitch count mounted. He did a great job.”
