Giants agree to deal with former All-Star, pairing him with twin brother: Reports


The San Francisco Giants had a simple recruiting strategy to acquire relief pitcher Taylor Rogers: Ask his twin brother to lure him.

Tyler Rogers, also a pitcher, has been with the organization since being drafted by them in 2013, and he made his MLB debut with the club five years later.

Now he’ll share a bullpen with a familiar face, as Taylor and the Giants have reportedly agreed to a three-year contract for $33 million.

The Rogers brothers are the 10th set of twins to make it to the majors, but they’re the first to be teammates since Jose and Ozzie Canseco in 1990 as members of the Oakland Athletics. Ozzie appeared in just nine games for the A’s and only appeared in 24 major league games. Jose, meanwhile, has hit 466 homers in his career.

Taylor, despite being only minutes behind his brother, entered the big leagues two years earlier, spending his first six seasons with the Minnesota Twins (oh, the irony). They traded him to Tyler’s division rival San Diego Padres in April, but he was later traded to the Milwaukee Brewers a day before MLB’s trade deadline.

GIANTS TO SIGN FORMER ALL-STAR WHO MISSED LAST YEAR WITH INJURY AFTER CARLOS CORREA PHYSICAL CONCERNS

Taylor was closest to the Padres for most of his tenure with them, but after struggling over the summer he lost his role. San Diego acquired Josh Hader as part of their deal with Milwaukee and advanced to the National League Championship Series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Last season, the Rogers brothers became the first pair of twins to appear in the same match since the Cansecos 32 years prior, and only the fifth pair to do so in majors history.

Taylor boasts a career 3.42 ERA while striking out 10.6 in his career, but last season his ERA dropped to 4.76 despite hitting 11.8 K/9s.

Tyler has been a dependable arm in the bullpen, leading all relievers in appearances in 2020 and 2021. During his career, he threw a 2.94 ERA.

But despite being identical twins, the brothers’ pitching styles couldn’t be further apart.
