Congratulations to Carlsbad’s own Trevor Rogers, who was called up to the Majors this week and is expected to start for the Miami Marlins in the second round of Tuesday evening’s double header against the Mets. The seven-inning game is serving as a makeup game to last week’s postponement.
Rogers participated in the Marlins major league spring training and has been pitching at the organization’s alternate training site. Trevor, a Carlsbad High standout, was a first-round draft pick in 2017. Carlsbad couldn’t be more proud of Trevor, who has maintained a high level of involvement in our community even after he made it to the big leagues.
Trevor Rogers struck out six batters in his opening performance in the Major Leagues Tuesday night, and the Miami Marlins went on to shut out the Mets in both games of their doubleheader. He pitched four innings and gave up no runs.
You couldn’t have asked for a better first outing, and we know that the Miami Marlins can expect a lot more from the Carlsbad High School standout. He also did a great job in his interview after the game and talked about playing baseball since he was five and getting to represent New Mexico. It was nice to have some positive news.
From the office of Mayor Dale Janway
