Mark Rogers Suspended 25 Games; Tested Positive for Stimulant

Mark Rogers will be suspended 25 games for a stimulant violation. Rogers is on the Milwaukee Brewers 40-man roster, and currently pitching for Class A Brevard County. It is unknown what stimulant the pitcher took.  ESPN's Adam Rubin was the first to report the announcement, and the Milwaukee Brewers confirmed the suspension via Twitter.

The news comes 24 hours after we learned Mike Jacobs was suspended 50 games for testing positive for Human Growth Hormone. Unlike Jacobs, Rogers was once considered a former prospect and also struggling this season instead of flourishing. Rogers is posting a 9.34 ERA with almost more walks (15) than strikeouts (17) across Triple-A, Rookie ball, and Advanced-A.

The 5th overall selection of the 2004 MLB June Amateur Draft, Rogers was already done for the season because of carpal tunnel syndrome. He was scheduled to see a hand specialist in Phoenix today to have surgery to correct that problem, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel.
