Default Repitching a Rogue Slurry

So I bottled a Rogue clone last night and saved 15oz of slurry, hoping I won't have to buy another pack when I brew this again in a couple weeks. It's in a sterilized jelly jar with saran wrap & a rubberband on top. According to Mr. Malty, for a 2.5 gal batch of 1.050 wort, I would only need 58ml or 2oz of 14 day old slurry.

Does that sound right? Seems really low. Is there that much viable yeast in my slurry?

I'm not interested in doing a starter yet.

That does sound right, I usually pitch just a little more than the mr. Malty slurry predictions. In your case I would probably pitch ~2.5oz. For my 5 gal batches if it says 3 oz I'll pitch 4.
