Rojas got the start at shortstop and went 3-for-3 with a stolen base during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

He's picked the right time to heat up at the plate with the news that Martin Prado (hamstring) could miss the first month of the regular season. Rojas should handle the short side of a platoon with Derek Dietrich at third base while Prado is sidelined, and the 28-year-old might have a bit more upside at the plate than it seems at first glance given his career .274/.318/.384 line in 160 games at Triple-A with eight home runs and nine steals. His main fantasy value in deep NL-only leagues will come from his positional flexibility, however, as Rojas will carry eligibility at first base, second base and shortstop forward from 2016 in most formats.
