Esmil Rogers is headed for an MRI exam after cutting short yesterday’s throwing session due to shoulder pain and the Rockies starter told Thomas Harding of MLB.com that “he suspects there is rotator cuff damage.”

Rogers is already on the disabled list with a lat strain and struggled before landing on the shelf, posting a 7.66 ERA in four starts and one relief appearance.

Harding writes that “now Rogers is looking at the possibility of a more extensive injury” and the 25-year-old right-hander noted that this is the first arm injury of his career.

For now Clayton Mortensen is filling Rogers’ spot in the rotation.

    I’m telling you. It’s the curse of the added “s”. Kendrys Morales, Dennys Baez, couple other guys.
    If he’d just change his name to Emil, order would be restored by appeasing the alphabet gods.
