Biographical Information[edit]

First baseman Jason Rogers has played in the Milwaukee Brewers system since 2010, making his major league debut in 2014. He was drafted by the club in the 32nd round of the 2010 amateur draft.

He played for the AZL Brewers in 2010 and hit .281/.368/.394 with 45 hits in 42 games. The next year, he hit .277/.337/.431 with 7 home runs and 40 RBI in 71 games split between the Helena Brewers and Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. In 2012, he hit a combined .301/.405/.449 with 11 home runs, 66 RBI, 35 doubles and 12 stolen bases in 133 games split between Wisconsin and the Brevard County Manatees. He was a Midwest League Mid-Season All-Star after his performance with Wisconsin (.301/.394/.485, 6 HR, 43 RBI) and he was named a MiLB.com Organizational All-Star following the season. With the Huntsville Stars in 2013, he hit .270/.346/.468 with 22 home runs and 87 RBI in 133 games. He was named to the Southern League's Mid- and Post-Season All-Star teams that year.

He hit his first career homer for the Brewers against Travis Wood of the Chicago Cubs on May 9, 2015 in a 12-4 Brewers win; however, it was overshadowed by Cubs top prospect Kris Bryant's own first major league homer, which came in the same game. On September 28th, he hit a pinch-hit grand slam off St. Louis Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal in the 9th inning to give the Brewers an 8-4 win. He played 86 games that year, hitting .296 with 4 homers and 16 RBIs while seeing most of his playing time at first base as a right-handed platoon partner for Adam Lind. On December 17th, he was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates in return for two minor leaguers, OF Keon Broxton and P Trey Supak.
