CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - - Boston College's Jed Rogers (Westerly, R.I.) was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 22nd round as the 663rd overall pick of the 2001 lottery. Rogers was the lone Eagle selected through the 25th round.
Rogers helped the Eagles finish their season at 29-22-0 overall and 11-13-0, eighth in the fifth-ranked BIG EAST conference. BC won 10 of its last 12 games, a stretch that included seven victories in nine opportunities vs. BIG EAST foes. The only two losses came against then second-ranked Notre Dame (May 12).
Rogers, who graduated from BC with a degree in economics, tallied a 3-5 record and 5.08 ERA in 56.2 (third on the BC squad) innings. He led the Eagles to the 5-3 win over Seton Hall (May 6), surrendering three runs on seven hits. In his previous start, Rogers pitched a 7.0-inning complete game for the win over Villanova (April 28), allowing only two runs and fanning six batters. The senior right-hander was saddled with the hard-luck loss vs. Rutgers, after allowing only four earned runs on five hits in 5.2 innings of work. On March 23, he struck out a career-high seven batters in 6.0 innings of work to take the loss at West Virginia.
