Sydney's loss may be Hobart's gain with Tom Rogers re-joining the Hobart Hurricanes for BBL11.
The side's penultimate player, the 27-year-old bowling all-rounder played with the Hurricanes from BBL07 to BBL09 before signing with the Sydney Sixers as a replacement player last year.
"To be back in purple with players that I know well, and in a program I enjoy and have had success in, is really exciting," Rogers said.
"The Hurricanes have a really exciting squad this season with a good mix of national and international talent, so hopefully, when I get the opportunity, I can contribute with both the bat and the ball this season, and help the team take that next step."
Born in the ACT, Rogers moved to Tasmania in 2017 and was rewarded with debuts in all three formats in that season, playing his first Hurricanes game in Launceston against the Thunder.
His debut Sheffield Shield season saw him named in the team of the year, taking 37 wickets at an average of 18.37 to finish at the Tigers' equal-leading wicket-taker alongside Jackson Bird.
He also averaged just under 25 with the bat, scoring 80 to earn the Tigers a spot in the competition's final.
On the Big Bash stage, the fast bowler has taken nine wickets from his 12 games, sporting a best bowling of 3-31 in the BBL07 semi-final, once again helping his side through to the grand final.
Uncontracted with the Tigers, Rogers returned to the state's one-day side in their 45-run loss to Queensland, taking one wicket.
The Big Bash League season kicks off on December 5, with the Hurricanes' campaign starting against Rogers' former side, Sydney Sixers, at UTAS Stadium on December 8.
