Mark Elliot Rogers (born January 30, 1986) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. He made his Major League Baseball debut in 2010.


He was drafted by Milwaukee as the 5th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2004 amateur entry draft out of Mt. Ararat High School in Topsham, Maine, where he was coached by Bob Neron. In 2004, he played for the Rookie league Arizona Brewers. He was promoted to the Class A West Virginia Power in 2005. Rogers split the 2006 season between Arizona and the Class A-Advanced Brevard County Manatees.

In July 2006, Rogers injured his right shoulder and underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum. In June 2007, he had scar tissue removed as a result of the first surgery. After rehabbing for the entire 2008 season, Rogers returned to the field for Brevard County in 2009. Rogers played the majority of the 2010 season with the Double-A Huntsville Stars, but also played one game for the Triple-A Nashville Sounds. On September 10, he was recalled by the Brewers, making his major league debut in that evening's game.

On August 19, 2011, Major League Baseball announced that Rogers had been suspended for 25 games "due to a second positive test for a stimulant in violation of Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program".[1]

On July 29, 2012, Rogers returned to the Major Leagues to replace Zack Greinke in the starting rotation after he was traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

On November 26, 2012, Rogers' Mt. Ararat jersey number, 8, was retired in a ceremony involving the current student body.

Rogers had a productive stint in the majors during his call-up. He went 3-1 with a 3.92 ERA, striking out 41 batters in 39 innings.
