The Marlins plan to shift Miguel Rojas over to third base to cover for the injured Martin Prado.

The Marlins have recalled J.T. Riddle from Triple-A to function as their primary shortstop. Rojas is hitting .261/.330/.415 with seven homers, 23 RBI and two stolen bases on the season. Gaining third base eligibility should give his minimal fantasy value a slight boost.

Miguel Rojas homered twice and had three hits and four RBI in a loss to the Braves on Sunday.

Rojas hit a two-run shot off of Lucas Sims, and he homered again off of A.J. Minter in the top of the ninth to gives Miami a 9-4 lead. That, amazingly, wasn't enough to give Miami the victory. Rojas has swung the bat better as of late, and he's hitting .264/.322/.429 with seven homers and 20 RBI over 46 games.
May 20 - 5:34 PM

Miguel Rojas (wrist) finished 0-for-3 with an RBI sac fly Tuesday in his return to the Marlins' lineup.

Rojas made an early exit from Sunday's series finale against the Braves due to a left wrist contusion, but it was never considered a serious issue. He drove in one of Miami's four runs in Tuesday night's 4-2 defeat of the Dodgers. The 29-year-old shortstop is slashing .355/.304/.389 with five homers, 15 RBI, two steals, and 12 runs scored in 41 games this season.

Miguel Rojas was removed from Sunday's game against the Braves due to a left wrist contusion.

His wrist was pretty swollen after Sunday's game, but it doesn't appear at the moment as if it will lead to a trip to the disabled list. Keep an eye on his status on Monday if you're planning on using him in weekly fantasy leagues.
May 13 - 5:31 PM

Miguel Rojas had a big day with three hits and two RBI Wednesday in the Marlins’ loss to the Cubs.

He accounted for three of Miami’s eight hits and two of the team’s four RBI. The Marlins leadoff man began the day with a first-inning single off Jose Quintana then added to his haul with another base hit in the fifth. Later he bopped a two-run jack off Justin Hancock while trimming the Cubs’ lead to nine (it was a long afternoon for Miami). Wednesday was the shortstop’s fifth multi-hit game of the season and his second three-hit performance.
May 9 - 7:06 PM

Miguel Rojas with 1-for-3 with a homer in a victory over the Rockies on Sunday.

It's the fourth homer of the year for Rojas, and it came off of Chad Bettis in the fourth inning. There's some raw pop in his bat, but it's not enough to compensate for his lack of average or on-base percentage (.233/.288) from a fantasy perspective.
Apr 29 - 3:55 PM

Miguel Rojas ended up 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk and three RBI in Wednesday's 8-6 road victory against the Dodgers.

Rojas belted a three-run homer off of three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw in the top of the fifth inning to give the Marlins a lead they would never relinquish. Despite the big knock, don't get too carried away and overvalue him from a fantasy perspective. This was his first multi-RBI game of the season, and he entered with no RBI over the past 11 contests.
Apr 26 - 12:31 AM

Miguel Rojas went 3-for-5 and scored a run as the Marlins crushed the Pirates on Friday night in Miami.

All three of his hits were singles in this one. The Marlins' shortstop has been swinging a hot bat in the early part of the season, slashing .294/.357/.451 with a pair of homers, four RBI and a stolen base.
Apr 13 - 10:16 PM

Miguel Rojas cracked a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.

He took starter Zack Wheeler yard in the first inning for his only hit of the night, although he did work a walk as well. The 29-year-old shortstop has a .261 batting average with two homers and four RBI in 12 games. This is his fifth major league season and the first time he's hit more than one homer in a year.
Apr 11 - 9:59 PM

Miguel Rojas hit his first homer of the season in a victory over the Phillies on Monday.

The homer came in the first off of Jake Arrieta, and it was a solo blast. Rojas is in the lineup more so because of his glove than his offensive skills, but he's not completely useless with the bat. Having said that, there's very little reason to consider him as a fantasy option no matter who he's facing.
Apr 8 - 4:58 PM

Marlins and INF Miguel Rojas avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.18 million contract.

Rojas was arbitration-eligible for the first time. He hit .290/.361/.375 as a part-time player in 2017.
Jan 12 - 1:56 PM

Miguel Rojas went 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in a lopsided win over the Braves on Saturday.

Rojas registered an RBI triple in the first inning, and he finished just a home run shy of the cycle. The 28-year-old, not really known for his offense, has hit well this season, batting .290/.359/.375 across 89 games. Of course, that production is still below what a team should get from its starting shortstop, and Rojas will continue to be nothing more than a serviceable backup going forward.

Miguel Rojas knocked in four runs with a pair of doubles Monday as the Marlins beat the Rockies 5-4.

It's his first ever four-RBI game. In fact, he usually struggles to rack up that many in a month; he entered the night with 60 RBI in 351 career games dating back to 2014. In this one, though, he ruined Tyler Chatwood's night with a bases loaded double in the fourth and then added one more double to plate the Marlins' final run in the sixth.

Miguel Rojas has a slight tear in his rotator cuff, but it doesn't appear it will require surgery.

It must be a very minor tear, because Rojas was able to play on Wednesday and even hit a homer. It sounds like Rojas won't get many more starts the rest of the year, but the 28-year-old utility infielder should be able to handle the late innings as a defensive replacement.
