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.
