Marlins’ Trevor Rogers named NL Rookie of the Month for April and May

The first two months of Trevor Rogers’ rookie season with the Miami Marlins went as well as anyone in the organization hoped. No. 4 on the starting rotation, MLB just named Rogers the National League Rookie of the Month in May.

Rogers also earned the accolade in April.

Rogers joined the Marlins organization midway through the season in 2020 and earned a spot on the 2021 opening day roster.

In 2020 Rogers went 1-2 in seven games with one quality start. He threw 28 innings and recorded 39 strikeouts for an ERA of 6.11.
