San Francisco Giantsleft-hander Taylor Rogers experienced some frustration on the mound near the beginning of the season.
This frustration ultimately resulted in him actually throwing his glove in the trash can when he returned to the Giants dugout.
Oddly enough, this move may have been the catalyst for bigger and better things.
The Giants are currently on a roll right now, and so too is Rogers.
San Francisco is now 10 games above the .500 mark and just 2.5 games back of first place in the NL West, having won seven of their last 10.
As for Rogers, he has posted some impressive stats since he tossed his glove in the trash.
The lefty has appeared in 26 games and has worked a total of 23.2 innings, allowing just one earned run and posting an ERA of 0.38.
On Twitter, Giants analyst Leo Luna posted some of Rogers stats since he threw away his glove.

In addition, Rogers has held opponents to a .148/.228/.198 slash line.
It s certainly a rare occurrence for a pitcher to be so frustrated that he throws his glove in the trash.
It s even more rare that a pitcher would proceed to go on an epic run since having done it.
But such has been the case for Rogers, who has quickly become a viable piece in the Giants bullpen since he made this decision.
Perhaps a new glove was all he needed.
San Francisco is red-hot at the moment and they are looking to gain some more ground on the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL West as the second half approaches.
