Player Outlook
Miguel Rojas took hold of the primary shortstop role for the Dodgers last season after youngster Gavin Lux went down with season-ending ACL and LCL tears in his right knee during spring training. The veteran gave the team steady defense but minimal offensive production, finishing with a .236/.290/.322 slash line, five homers, 31 RBI and eight stolen bases over 423 plate appearances. Those numbers were nearly identical to what Rojas posted in 2022 in his final season with Miami and are a good indicator of what should be expected of him in the latter stages of his career. The veteran has just one double-digit homer season and one double-digit theft campaign over his 10 big-league seasons, so he's never been an exciting fantasy option. He'll be almost entirely off the radar next year, as he's expected to take on a bench role with Lux returning as Los Angeles' starting shortstop.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Belts second long ball

    Rojas went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional RBI against San Francisco in a 5-4 win Wednesday. Rojas put the Dodgers on the board with a run-scoring groundout in the second inning, then gave the team a four-run lead with a solo shot in the fourth. The long ball was his second through nine plate appearances this season -- a surprising development given that he hasn't posted double-digit homers in any campaign since going deep a career-high 11 times in 2018. With that in mind, it's not logical to expect Rojas to continue to flash power, especially since he typically starts only when Los Angeles faces a lefty starter.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Swats homer Friday

    Rojas went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-3 win against the Cardinals. With Los Angeles going up against lefty Zack Thompson, Rojas logged his first start of the campaign while Gavin Lux got the night off. Rojas made the most of the opportunity, gathering two hits, including a solo homer to left field in the seventh inning. The veteran is slated to get regular starts at shortstop when Los Angeles goes up against lefty starters, but it's not expected to be a straight platoon with Lux, per Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Will start occasionally vs. lefties

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Rojas will get some starts at shortstop against left-handed pitchers, but he won't be part of a strict platoon, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rojas got the bulk of playing time at shortstop last year after Gavin Lux tore his ACL in spring training and was lost for the season, and he finished the campaign with a .236/.290/.322 slash line along with five homers, 31 RBI, 49 runs and eight steals. With Lux back in the fold for 2024, Rojas is slated to work in a reserve role, with Lux starting at second base and Mookie Betts taking over at shortstop. When the Dodgers go up against southpaws, Betts will sometimes slide over to second while Rojas gets an opportunity at shortstop, but Roberts' comments make it clear that this won't be more than an occasional lineup change.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Back in action Tuesday

    Rojas (lower leg) is starting at third base and batting eighth for the Dodgers in his return to action Tuesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Rojas had to be scratched from Sunday's lineup with some lower leg soreness but is back out there a couple days later. The veteran infielder is prepping for a utility infielder role in 2024.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Scratched with leg soreness

    Rojas was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks due to lower leg soreness, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Even though Rojas was scratched, Ardaya notes that the veteran infielder was still taking groundballs in pregame warmups, so the leg injury likely isn't a major concern. Rojas made 109 starts for Los Angeles during the 2023 season, but he'll likely be in line for more of a reduced role in 2024 with Mookie Betts and Gavin Lux slated to serve as the Dodgers' primary starters in the middle infield.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Returns to lineup

    Rojas is starting at shortstop and batting ninth Saturday against Arizona in Game 1 of the NLDS, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rojas missed the Dodgers' final two regular-season games after getting hit in the hand by a pitch. He was given extra time to recover thanks to the team's first-round bye, and he'll return in time for the start of Los Angeles' playoff run. The 34-year-old is slashing .300/.338/.429 with two homers and seven RBI in 24 contests since Sept. 1.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Making progress with hand/wrist

    Rojas (hand/wrist) is playing in an intrasquad game Wednesday at Dodger Stadium, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. Rojas missed the final two games of the regular season after taking a pitch off his left hand/wrist last Friday in San Francisco, but the Dodgers are off until Game 1 of the NLDS this Saturday and the veteran shortstop should be ready to rock. Chris Taylor and Enrique Hernandez filled in at short in his absence.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: On bench again Sunday

    Rojas (hand) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Rojas will sit for the second straight game to close out the regular season after being hit by a pitch on the left hand Friday. The 34-year-old will have nearly a week to rest up before Game 1 of the NLDS next weekend. Enrique Hernandez is starting at shortstop Sunday in San Francisco.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Not starting Saturday

    Rojas (hand) will not start Saturday's game against San Francisco. Rojas left Friday's game after getting hit in the hand by a pitch. He escaped with nothing worse than a bruise but has no reason to risk anything Saturday with the Dodgers locked into the second seed in the National League. Chris Taylor will get the start at shortstop in his absence. Skipper Dave Roberts noted before Saturday's game that the swelling in Rojas' hand has gone down, and the team has put a CT scan on hold for now, per Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Diagnosed with hand contusion

    Rojas was diagnosed with a left hand contusion following his exit from Friday's game against the Dodgers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. It sounds like a fracture has been ruled out after Rojas got plunked by a 94.7 mph fastball in the top of the seventh inning. Los Angeles might be careful nonetheless with the veteran shortstop over the final two games of the regular season, as the team looks ahead to the playoffs. Amed Rosario took over at short Friday, and Chris Taylor and Enrique Hernandez would also be options at the position.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Exits after HBP to hand

    Rojas was removed from Friday's game in San Francisco after taking a pitch off his left hand, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Sean Hjelle struck him with a 94.7 mph fastball in the top of the seventh inning, following some jawing between the NL West rivals in the bottom of the sixth. Rojas finished the night 0-for-2 with the HBP. Amed Rosario took over at shortstop for Los Angeles in the bottom of the seventh.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: On bench Thursday

    Rojas is out of the lineup Thursday versus the Rockies. Chris Taylor will play shortstop and bat sixth in the Dodgers' series finale at Coors Field. Rojas went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 8-2 victory over Colorado, but he carries a rough .238/.289/.324 season slash line in 420 total plate appearances.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Smacks homer Monday

    Rojas went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Monday's 8-3 win over the Tigers. This was Rojas' second homer in his last three games, an unusual bit of power from the light-hitting shortstop. He's been steady at the plate in September, going 16-for-45 (.356) with four extra-base hits and six RBI over 14 contests. The 34-year-old is at a .239/.294/.331 slash line with five homers, 30 RBI, 47 runs scored and eight stolen bases over 115 games this season while routinely hitting at or near the bottom of the order.

  • Dodgers' Miguel Rojas: Hits go-ahead homer

    Rojas went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 6-3 win over the Mariners. Rojas snapped a 20-game homer drought with his go-ahead blast in the fifth inning. The infielder was at least productive during the power outage, going 19-for-64 (.297) in that span, though he picked up just four RBI. He's seen steady playing time at shortstop this year, posting a .237/.293/.322 slash line with four homers, 29 RBI, 45 runs scored and eight stolen bases through 113 contests.
