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

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.

Miguel Rojas expects to get the cast off his right thumb in about a week.

Rojas was off to a surprising start this season before suffering a fractured right thumb a week ago. He hopes to be back right before the All-Star break.

Marlins placed INF Miguel Rojas on the 60-day disabled list with a fractured right thumb.

Rojas suffered the injury during Sunday's game and is expected to miss at least a couple of months. The move clears a spot for Tyler Moore on the 40-man roster.

Miguel Rojas has been diagnosed with a fractured right thumb.

Rojas will be fitted with a cast and is expected to miss multiple months. It's a bummer for a guy who was off to a surprising .338/.389/.400 start at the plate. Rojas will officially be placed on the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.
Mon, May 8, 2017 10:16:00 PM

Miguel Rojas (thumb) is likely to be placed on the disabled list.

It doesn't appear that the Marlins will make a move prior to Monday's game, so perhaps they'll give Rojas' right thumb a day or two in hopes he recovers quickly. Ultimately, though, it sounds like Tyler Moore will come up to replace him on the roster.
