There was no official word Monday, but indications are that right-hander Mark Rogers will open the season on the disabled list while trying to build arm strength. "Wednesday, we'll have a better plan on what we're going to do," said manager Ron Roenicke. "We know what we want to do. We talked to Mark this morning, (GM ) Doug (Melvin), (assistant) Gord (Ash) and I. We know what we're going to do. We just need to figure out going forward, especially the next couple of weeks, how we go about it. And Mark agrees."
