Rojas broke a scoreless tie with his solo shot in the fifth inning Tuesday night. The veteran shortstop has not had a great year with the bat overall, but he has raised his average nearly 40 points in the last 10 days. In that stretch, Rojas has gone 10-for-34 with three doubles and a homer.
Marlins INF Miguel Rojas announced on the Chris Rose Rotation Podcast Wednesday that he is nearing completion on a two-year extension to stay in Miami through 2023.
Rojas has been as steady as they come at the shortstop position, in what has otherwise been a series of revolving doors around the rest of Miami's roster. Rojas has also flashed his ability as a hitter, specifically in 2019 and 2020. He'll hope to get back to that type of hitter in 2022, when he'll try to lead an extremely young Marlins roster to a successful season.
Miguel Rojas is day to day with a left knee contusion. He should be able to return soon.
Rojas has hit .268/.324/.395 with eight homers on the season for the Marlins. He's had a decent season.
Marlins' infielder Miguel Rojas was pulled from Sunday's contest against the Phillies with a sore left trapezius muscle.
Prior to exiting Sunday's game, Rojas was 0-for-4 with a strikeout. Although he was pulled late in the contest, manager Don Mattingly is hopeful that the injury isn't too serious, and although there's no definitive timetable for Rojas' return, the initial prognosis seems positive.
