• Former first-round Draft pick Mark Rogers made an abrupt exit during his fifth Minor League rehab appearance at Double-A Huntsville on Tuesday, according to that team's Twitter feed. Rogers surrendered a home run to the first batter he faced, walked the second on four pitches and then exited with athletic trainer Steve Patera after falling behind, 2-0, to a third hitter. He threw nine pitches in all, only one for a strike.
The fifth overall pick in the 2004 Draft, Rogers has been pitching in the Minors to regain the velocity that eluded him in Spring Training and cost him a shot at a spot in the Brewers' starting rotation.
