Josh Rogers, who was drafted by the New York Yankees in the 11th round of the 2015 MLB Draft, is in his first season with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. He’s started 14 games this season and sports a 6-5 record and 3.35 ERA. Rogers ranked sixth among starting pitchers in the latest International League All-Star team voting update.
Here’s five things you might not know about the RailRiders starting pitcher:
1. I have a crazy shoe collection over 100 pairs of shoes.
2. I am part owner in race horses at Churchill Downs.
3. I am a 6-and-a-half handicap golfer, unless we are playing for money.
4. I have two Goldendoodles named Heater and Louie.
5. I’m better than fellow RailRiders Brandon Drury and Mike Ford at iPhone game 8 Ball Pool.
