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.

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.

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.

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.

Miguel Rojas (shoulder) entered as a defensive sub Tuesday night against the Mets.

Rojas was held out of the Marlins' starting lineup after being diagnosed with a left shoulder strain on Sunday. The 28-year-old infielder probably won't get many starts the rest of the way.

Miguel Rojas will undergo an MRI on Tuesday on his ailing left shoulder.

Rojas has battled nagging soreness in the shoulder for a couple months and aggravated the ailment Sunday. The Marlins might wind up shutting him down for the season just to be safe.

Miguel Rojas (shoulder) is not in Monday's lineup versus the Mets.

Rojas left Sunday's game with a left shoulder strain and is considered day-to-day. Mike Avlies will fill in at shortstop.
Mon, Sep 18, 2017 03:24:00 PM

Miguel Rojas departed Sunday's game versus the Brewers with a left shoulder strain.

Rojas hurt himself on a dive. The Marlins should provide an update on the infielder after the game.

Miguel Rojas went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs on Friday, propelling the Marlins to a 7-1 victory over the Braves in Atlanta.

Rojas got the Marlins on the board with an RBI single in the second inning then added on a run-scoring double in the ninth. With the two-hit night, he's hitting .263/.329/.310 with no homers and 14 RBI on the season.

Marlins activated INF Miguel Rojas from the 60-day disabled list.

Rojas has been out since early May after fracturing his right thumb. He's a candidate to see starts at third base with Martin Prado (knee) out and would be an option at second if the Marlins wind up trading Dee Gordon.

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

Rojas told reporters after the workout that he is aiming to rejoin the Marlins right after the All-Star break. He's been on the 60-day disabled list since May 9.
