Pirates Option Jason Rogers to AAA

By Jason Shetler

According to the MLB and MiLB transaction pages, the Pirates have optioned Jason Rogers to AAA Indianapolis.

Rogers didn’t make the Opening Day roster as a reserve, and began the season with Indianapolis. The 28-year-old first baseman went on a tear versus AAA pitching, as he put up a 1.118 OPS in 11 games with the Indians. 

Following the release of Michael Morse in late April, the Pirates called up Rogers shortly after to serve in a first base platoon with John Jaso for the time being. In 17 plate appearances, Rogers posted just a .603 OPS. The decision to send him back to AAA most likely means that Jung-Ho Kang could rejoin the Pirates on Friday in St. Louis.
