Rogers throws sim game
Kenny Rogers just finished his three-inning, 52-pitch simulated game Friday afternoon. He didn’t look particularly happy at times, and he had a handful of breaking balls in the dirt, but he wasn’t hit all that hard. The fact that the sound system at McAfee Coliseum was blaring music the whole time probably didn’t make him all that happy. You wouldn’t be, either, if your shot to get back into the rotation hinged on how you pitched to Abba’s Dancing Queen or a remake of Instant Karma.
We’ll see what the verdict is from the manager later today. At the moment, he’s hitting BP off of Van Slyke.
