According to the MLB and MiLB transaction pages, the Pittsburgh Pirates have optioned 1B/3B Jason Rogers to Indianapolis. Both the Pirates and Indianapolis have off tomorrow, so we likely won’t hear about his roster replacement right away, but one would have to assume that it means Jung-ho Kang will be rejoining the Pirates when they play in St Louis on Friday. With rehab assignments limited to 20 days maximum, Kang could stay with Indianapolis as late as May 10th. He has struggled at the plate, going 6-for-40 with a .442 OPS, though he has looked better lately and his fielding has been strong the entire time.
Rogers went 1-for-13 with four walks in nine games with the Pirates. He was the best hitter at Indianapolis before getting called up, putting up a 1.118 OPS in his first 11 games.
