Pirates Recall Jason Rogers, Option Cole Figueroa to Indianapolis


The Pittsburgh Pirates recalled 1B/3B Jason Rogers on Friday and sent infielder Cole Figueroa to Indianapolis to make room on the roster.

Rogers is having a terrific season in Indianapolis, hitting .366/.435/.683 in 11 games. He has played third base three times, first base three times and served as the DH in the other five games. Rogers homered off Homer Bailey in Thursday’s ballgame, his third home run of the season.

Figueroa was 0-for-9 in eight games for the Pirates, being used mostly as a pinch-hitter. He did not start any games. His only time spent on defense was late in games, playing two innings at second base and three frames at third base.

Rogers is in the starting lineup tonight, batting sixth and playing first base.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball. When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
