Roster Moves

The Brewers have announced that both Taylor Green and Mark Rogers have been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Green was placed, retroactive to 3/22, with a left hip labral injury. He played for Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic and started every game (three total) at third base and returned to the Brewers healthy. Until the injury, Green was in competition to start games at first base until the return of injured starter Corey Hart.

Mark Rogers was placed on the disabled list, retroactive to 3/25, with right shoulder instability. After maintaining all spring that Rogers was fine despite reduced velocity and control, both sides finally agreed that something must be wrong physically with the oft-injured pitcher. With multiple spots to win open in the rotation to start camp, Rogers was inconsistent at best during his outings. An added benefit to placing Rogers on the DL is that the team can retain him while they attempt to get him right physically. Rogers entered the year out of minor league options.
