Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Records lone Arizona hit
Rojas went 1-for-3 with a steal in Tuesday's loss against the Brewers.
Rojas was one of the lone bright spots for Arizona, as he recorded the team's sole hit on the night. The hit, a single to lead off the seventh inning, spoiled Milwaukee's bid for a combined no-hitter and put him in position to swipe second base, which he did successfully. The stolen base was his 23rd of the season and third in his last five games. Over 506 plate appearances in 2022, Rojas has slashed .267/.347/.380.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Doubles twice in three-hit game
Rojas went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in Sunday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Giants.
Rojas collected six hits in three games in this weekend series versus the Giants. He added four RBI, two runs scored and a pair of stolen bases. He slumped in September, but he could finish the year strong with a small burst of offense in the final week.

Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Adds steal in loss
Rojas went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 10-4 loss to the Giants.
This was Rojas' first multi-hit effort since Sept. 11. The 28-year-old had a rough month, going 15-for-74 (.203), which cost him some playing time in combination with sloppy defense. He's been more good than bad in 2022 overall, logging a .264/.345/.376 slash line with eight home runs, 51 RBI, 64 runs scored and 21 steals in 120 games.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Returns to lineup
Rojas started at third base and went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Giants.
Rojas was held out of the starting lineup the previous three games -- two against left-handers and one against a right-hander -- largely due to erratic defense. He returned to action against San Francisco righty Alex Cobb Going forward, he could share third base with righty-hitting Emmanuel Rivera or switch hitter Sergio Alcantara.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Remains infielder for now
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Rojas will remain an infielder through the end of the season, Jose M. Romero of the Arizona Republic reprots.
Rojas has had recent defensive issues and was held out Friday's starting lineup for the third straight game -- two against a lefty and one against a righty. The recent lineup decisions appear to be more about the defensive issues than a lefty-on-lefty matter, but Rojas has not started the last four against lefties. Lovullo said he'll continue to use him as an infielder, but there will be discussions in the offseason about what may be the best fit for Rojas, who has experience in the outfield and at multiple infield positions. Next season's outfield appears well stocked, so he would be unlikely to get 500 plate appearances if limited to outfield. Pending any offseason acquisitions, Rojas could move back to being a super utility player, but that would also cap his opportunities.... See More ... See Less

Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Defense costing playing time
Rojas was held out of Wednesday's start because he's slipped defensively, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
The lefty-hitting Rojas is usually a lineup staple against right-handed starters -- Dustin May was on the mound for the Dodgers -- but he was replaced at third base by Emmanuel Rivera, a right-handed batter. Rojas failed to convert three chances during an ugly eighth inning Tuesday, when the Dodgers plated five runs in a 6-5 Arizona loss. "I told him he has to work out here pregame, he's got to get back to the basic fundamentals and develop that feeling and flow and a confidence in picking up ground balls," manager Torey Lovullo said. Infield coach Tony Perezchica is working with Rojas on the infielder's technique. Rojas is tied at 32nd out of 36 qualified third basemen with a minus-7 outs above average.... See More ... See Less
