Esmil Rogers - Scouting Report Blue Jays

I think a lot of Blue Jay Fans didn't realize that the Jays traded the guy they got for John Farrell. Mike Aviles and Yan Gomes were sent to Cleveland in exchange for very hard throwing right hander Esmil Rogers. Rogers throws in the high 90's and will be a grea backend complement for Casey Jansen, Darren Oliver and the rest of the Bullpen. Rogers a fastball clocked at 95+ and a devastating splitter. The video will give you a good look at this guy and the stuff he features. I think we gave up a couple marginal players that were not going to contribute to the 2013 Blue Jays and received a plus arm. Rogers has spent most of his time with the Colorado Rockies. Rogers had an ERA of 3.06 in 2012 after coming over from the Rockies.
