Jake Rogers Injury

Rogers, a former third-round draft pick back in 2016, has been a serviceable option behind the plate in Detroit this season. The young backstop is slashing .239/.306/.496 with 17 RBIs and 11 walks across 38 games.

He's a great option defensively, having allowed only 3 passed balls in 310.2 innings while throwing out 57 percent of base stealers.

Detroit remains on the outside of the MLB playoff picture looking in with a 44-51 overall record, trailing the first-place Chicago White Sox by 13.5 games. Right now, the Tigers have just +20000 odds to win the AL Central division on FanDuel Sportsbook.
