Miguel Rojas took batting practice Thursday for the first time since his early-May thumb surgery.

Jun 29 - 3:33 PM

Miguel Rojas expects to get the cast off his right thumb in about a week.

Rojas was off to a surprising start this season before suffering a fractured right thumb a week ago. He hopes to be back right before the All-Star break.
May 15 - 3:44 PM

Marlins placed INF Miguel Rojas on the 60-day disabled list with a fractured right thumb.

Rojas suffered the injury during Sunday's game and is expected to miss at least a couple of months. The move clears a spot for Tyler Moore on the 40-man roster.
May 9 - 3:10 PM

Miguel Rojas has been diagnosed with a fractured right thumb.

Rojas will be fitted with a cast and is expected to miss multiple months. It's a bummer for a guy who was off to a surprising .338/.389/.400 start at the plate. Rojas will officially be placed on the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.
May 8 - 10:16 PM

Miguel Rojas (thumb) is likely to be placed on the disabled list.

It doesn't appear that the Marlins will make a move prior to Monday's game, so perhaps they'll give Rojas' right thumb a day or two in hopes he recovers quickly. Ultimately, though, it sounds like Tyler Moore will come up to replace him on the roster.
May 8 - 5:58 PM

Miguel Rojas departed Sunday's game versus the Mets with a sore right thumb.

Rojas evidently must have hurt the thumb during a swing on his first-inning strikeout. The Marlins should have more on his status after the game.
May 7 - 2:04 PM

Miguel Rojas went 3-for-5 with two RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored Friday against the Mets.

Rojas has seven hits over his last two games. Still, the utility infielder is hitting .444 (12-for-27) against the Mets this season and .242 (8-for-33) against everyone else.
May 5 - 10:41 PM

Miguel Rojas went 4-for-5 and scored three runs in a win over the Rays on Wednesday.

All four hits were singles. He owns a .309 batting average while getting semi-regular playing time for the Marlins. He has driven in just two runs but has scored 11 times.
May 3 - 11:40 PM

Miguel Rojas went 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs Friday against the Mets.

Rojas drew a walk to lead off the bottom of the ninth against Josh Edgin and scored the winning run when J.T. Realmuto doubled to right. The 28-year-old has had a couple of strong games filling in for Adeiny Hechavarria (oblique) at shortstop, but he came into Friday’s action with a weak .239/.288/.306 batting line over 558 plate appearances in the majors. He’s not a fantasy option.
Apr 14 - 11:03 PM

Miguel Rojas went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI on Friday, leading the Marlins to a 3-0 victory over the Nationals in Grapefruit League play.

It's just the ninth win for the Marlins on the spring season. Rojas' RBI double plated Ichiro Suzuki in the fourth inning, increasing the Marlins' lead to 2-0. He's hitting a robust .424 with a 1.096 OPS in limited action this spring and should secure a bench spot on the club's Opening Day roster.
Mar 25 - 12:18 AM

Miguel Rojas has passed all concussion tests.

Rojas was hit in the face with the ball when he tried to field a throw to second base on a stolen base attempt on Tuesday. It didn't look good, but it appears that the veteran infielder will be fine.
Mar 10 - 12:40 PM

Miguel Rojas left Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals after being hit in the face with the ball on a steal attempt.

The exact nature and severity of Rojas' injury are not yet known, but the Marlins should pass along word as the contest progresses. In 194 at-bats last season, the 28-year-old infielder hit .247/.288/.325 with a homer and 14 RBI. He is fighting it out for an Opening Day bench role this spring.
Mar 7 - 2:10 PM

Miguel Rojas left Monday's game with a left groin strain.

He's being listed as day-to-day, but these can be multi-week injuries. Rojas was 1-for-2 in the game and batting .254/.290/.331 in 106 total games this season.

Miguel Rojas (shoulder) served as a pinch-runner on Wednesday night against the Pirates.

Rojas took over on the bases for Derek Dietrich after Dietrich got struck on the wrist by a pitch. The utility infielder hadn't played in a few days due to irritation in his right shoulder. He should be close to full health now.
