Mark Rogers appears headed for disabled list
By Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel

Phoenix - There was no official word Monday, but indications are that right-hander Mark Rogers will open the season on the disabled list while trying to build arm strength.

"Wednesday, we'll have a better plan on what we're going to do," said manager Ron Roenicke. "We know what we want to do. We talked to Mark this morning, (GM ) Doug (Melvin), (assistant) Gord (Ash) and I. We know what we're going to do. We just need to figure out going forward, especially the next couple of weeks, how we go about it. And Mark agrees."

Rogers has struggled all spring with command and a drop in velocity, which eliminated him from the running for the starting rotation. He has said he is not injured, but the Brewers still could put him on the DL under the auspices of shoulder weakness or something like that.

"There's not (structural) issues," said Roenicke. "That's a good thing.

Major League Notebook: Rogers continues comeback in rehab
From staff and news services

Mark Rogers allowed three hits and two runs in two innings Sunday in a rehab start with the Class A Brevard County Manatees as he continues his comeback from a shoulder injury.

Rogers, a Milwaukee Brewers farmhand from Orrs Island, is on the 60-day disabled list because of what the team has termed right shoulder instability -- a muscle injury in the back of his shoulder.

The former Mt. Ararat High star and 2004 first-round draft pick has not pitched in the majors this season.

Rogers retired the first five batters he faced Sunday before giving up a single, a double and another single.

It was his second rehab start, following a two-inning outing Wednesday for the rookie-level Arizona Brewers in which he allowed one hit and struck out four.
