Steve Rogers Stats

Steve Rogers was born on Wednesday, October 26, 1949, in Jefferson City, Missouri. Rogers was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on July 18, 1973, with the Montreal Expos. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Steve Rogers baseball stats page.

"For many people, Steve Rogers is the guy who gave up the game-winning home run to Rick Monday in the 1981 National League Championship Series. However, to think of him for just that one pitch does a disservice to a player who was a five-time all-star, an ERA leader , and the ace of the excellent Montreal Expos teams of the late 1970s and early 1980s." - Historian Norm King (SABR Baseball Biography, 'Steve Rogers', Source )

The Montreal Expos were the first Major League Baseball team based outside of the United States of America, an expansion team that first took the field in 1969, then moved to Washington, D.C. in 2006, where the franchise now plays as the Washington Nationals .

In Montreal , the Expos had three Earned Run Average (ERA) Champions . The last Expos ' pitcher to lead the National League (NL) in ERA was Pedro Martinez , who finished the 1997 season with a major league best 1.90 ERA. Dennis Martinez also had a major league best ERA in 1991, finishing the year with a 2.39 ERA. And the first ERA Champion in Expos ' history was Steve Rogers, who finished the 1982 campaign with a National League leading 2.40 ERA.

Steve Rogers was the only Expos pitcher to lead the senior circuit in shutouts twice , finishing with a NL best in 1979 and 1983. He is also the all-time Expos leader in strikeouts with 1,621 (#2 is Javier Vazquez with 1,076), games started with 393 (#2 is Dennis Martinez with 233), complete games with 129 (#2 is Bill Stoneman with 45), games won with 158 (#2 is Dennis Martinez with 100), and shutouts with 37 (#2 is Bill Stoneman with 15).

Did you know that when Steve Rogers made his Major League debut on July 18, 1973 , he took the mound wearing #45 , the first Montreal Expos player to ever use that uniform number? Rogers did not get the decision that day, but did win his next game, a 1-hitter versus future hall of famer Steve Carlton .
