He threw left-handed and batted right-handed.
Rocker is a native of Macon, Georgia and currently resides in Atlanta.
1998 was Rocker's first season in the bigs. He was 1-3 but had a solid 2.13 ERA. The following year, an injury put Atlanta closer Kerry Ligtenberg on the DL, moving Rocker into the role, where he was 4-5 with 38 saves and another strong ERA, at 2.49. In 2000, he was 1-2 with 24 saves, again posting a low ERA, at 2.89.
During the 2001 season, Rocker was 2-2 with a 3.09 ERA and 19 saves, but after a bench clearing brawl that many people, including teammate Chipper Jones attributed to Rocker's actions, Atlanta sent Rocker, along with prospect Troy Cameron to the Cleveland Indians in exchange for pitchers Steve Karsay and Steve Reed. He struggled in Cleveland, going 3-7 with a 5.45 ERA and a mere 4 saves. The Indians chose not to retain him, and traded him to the Texas Rangers for pitcher David Elder
In 2002, he again struggled at 2-3 with a 6.66 ERA, and was released. In 2003, Rocker signed with Tampa Bay but was released after 2 appearances. He did not have a record and had an ERA of 9.00.
