Video: Marlins pranked Trevor Rogers with All-Star news
The Miami Marlins pulled a cruel prank on Trevor Rogers on Sunday.
Rogers was named one of the pitchers on the NL All-Star team. He learned of the news after Marlins manager Don Mattingly shared it with him.
Unfortunately for Rogers, Mattingly did not share the news in a very straightforward manner. The manager actually tried to prank Rogers by telling the southpaw he was being sent down to Triple-A to manage his innings.
Here is the video:

Rogers did not seem to moved at either piece of information. Maybe he was too focused on his upcoming Monday start against the Dodgers.
The 6-foot-5 lefty entered Monday’s game 7-5 with a 2.14 ERA and 110 strikeouts. He has been a top player for the Marlins this season and is deserving of the honor. Being sent down to the minors would have been bonkers.
