Most advanced defensive SS in his draft year, IMO, and makes some eye-popping plays, makes tough plays look easy, so smooth.
i feel like everything you said character-wise ISN'T true with rogowski, but thats based on seeing him play a few times during spring training. he kind of reminded me of that huge bad guy from major league. am i wrong?
