Rojas, who came over to the Marlins in the Dee Gordon trade with the Dodgers, is mostly known for his glove and hit just .181/.242/.221 across 162 plate appearances last year. The 26-year-old could get a shot if there's an injury to Adeiny Hechavarria.

As a pure defensive-minded utilityman, he's a tough guy to dedicate a roster spot to, though a nice player to have in Triple-A in case the starting shortstop goes down.
