Rogers joins Crew for opener vs. Cubs

The field is full of players at the moment, four full hours before game time, and it’s tough to tell who’s who. The Brewers are in their usual Friday throwback mode, wearing royal blue tops for early batting practice that make them extremely easy to confuse with the Cubs out for early work of their own.

Hopefully, we’ll be able to tell the teams apart later on. 
The Brewers have one newcomer at the park today in right-hander Mark Rogers, their first-round Draft pick from 2004 who was recalled from Double-A Huntsville. As reported a couple of days ago, Rogers was already in Milwaukee for his year-end motion analysis, and since he was on the 40-man roster, activating him made a lot of sense. It will be interesting to see how he’s used over the final three-plus weeks of the season, in relief or as a spot starter. Look for more on Rogers later over at
