The 29 year old right-hander was claimed by the Yankees off waivers back on July 31 from the Toronto Blue Jays.
In 18 games, including one start, Rogers went 2-0 for the Yanks with an ERA of 4.68. In 25 innings, he struck out 23, but gave up 22 hits and walked 10 in those frames. His ballpark adjusted ERA+ was 84 (the league average is 100)
Rogers showed some flashes of effectiveness throughout his time with the Yankees. He could be a part of the front end of the bullpen more so then to end the game and remember, you can never have enough arms.
