Miami Marlins: SP Trevor Rogers wins April NL Rookie of the Month
By Matt Melton
After an impressive month of dominance from the Miami Marlins young LHP, Trevor Rogers has been named as the NL Rookie of the Month for the month of April.
Trevor Rogers, as mentioned previously, was outstanding for the Miami Marlins during the month of April. Rogers finished the month of April with a 3-1 record to combine with a 1.29 ERA, one of the lowest among starting pitchers in the NL for the month. It’s clear why Rogers took home the award, while also receiving votes for NL Pitcher of the Month.
Rogers also in the process became the first Marlin to win the NL Rookie of the Month since Justin Bour in September of 2015.
If you take a deeper look at Rogers’ five starts made during the month of April however, the numbers of win/loss record along with his ERA may not do him justice as to just how good he was.
Trevor Rogers was outstanding during the month of April.
When looking in-depth at Rogers’ combined five starts made during April, it’s extremely evident that there was no-other player more deserving of the honor.
Rogers made five starts on the mound for Miami during the month of April. Yes, we know Rogers went 3-1 with a 1.29 ERA, but when you look a little closer, it’s evident just how good he was.
In-Depth Trevor Rogers April Stats:
- 5 starts – 28 innings pitched, 18 hits, 4 earned runs, 1 HR allowed, 10 BB, 38 K, 109 batters faced
Yes, Rogers faced 109 batters during the month, and only 18 got a hit. Sure the walks may need to go down over-time, but it’s clear why the Marlins are so high on him. Also evident by 38 K’s and a 12+ K/9, Rogers’ fastball is quickly turning into one of the best pitches on the Marlins staff.
Rogers currently ranks among the Top 10 of NL pitchers in every major statistical category, and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon. Also, whether it’s him, Jazz, or others, i’d say this isn’t the last time that the Miami Marlins see the NL Rookie of the Month in their possession during the 2021 season.
