Miguel Rojas went 1-for-2 with a go-ahead sacrifice fly in Friday's 2-1 win over the Nationals.

Rojas made yet another start at shortstop with Adeiny Hechavarria sidelined due to a hamstring injury. Unfortunately, he's not much of a fantasy option. The 26-year-old is batting just .228/.267/.304 with zero homers and zero steals through 41 games this season.

Miguel Rojas went 3-for-4 with a triple in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Rojas was called up in late June to act as a utility bat. The three hits he recorded on Thursday were his first three of the season. Playing for Triple-A New Orleans prior to the call-up, he hit .302/.345/.431 over 64 games. He doesn't figure to see enough significant at-bats to become fantasy relevant.

Marlins recalled INF Miguel Rojas from Triple-A New Orleans.

The 26-year-old infielder has the ability to play three different positions in the infield and will provide depth on the bench for the Marlins. He was hitting .302/.345/.431 with three homers and 23 RBI in 64 games at Triple-A.

Marlins optioned INF Miguel Rojas to Triple-A New Orleans.

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.

Infielder Miguel Rojas was sent from the Marlins to the Dodgers in Wednesday's seven-player trade.

Rojas was the defensive replacement for Hanley Ramirez at shortstop last season, but he proved pretty hopeless with the bat, hitting .181/.242/.221 in 162 at-bats. 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.
