Rojas will be hitting second and playing third base for the Marlins as they host the Mets on Friday, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports. The 27-year-old will be getting a rare start at the hot corner, subbing for regular third baseman Martin Prado. In 20 July at-bats, Rojas is hitting .350 with only two strikeouts. Although he doesn't hit for any power, Rojas makes for a sneaky play on Friday as he hits in front Christian Yelich, Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna.
Rojas is penciled in at second base, batting eighth, against the Cubs on Thursday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. Rojas returns to the Marlins lineup, replacing Derek Dietrich, who is getting a day off with lefty Jon Lester on the mound for the Cubs. Rojas will look to reverse his fortunes this month as he's batted 5-for-32 (.156) since June 1.
Rojas is in the lineup and batting ninth for Wednesday's game against the Twins, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports. Rojas will start in place of Adeiny Hechavarria at shortstop in order to give him a break, but the Venezuelan has struggled over his past 11 games, going just 2-for-18 at the plate.
Rojas is in the lineup and batting eighth for Thursday's game against the Pirates, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. With Derek Dietrich day-to-day with a wrist injury, Rojas will likely find himself in the starting lineup more often than not until he is back to full strength. The 27-year-old is hitting .268/.311/.321 with seven runs and six RBI through 41 games this season.
Rojas (shoulder) entered Wednesday's game against the Pirates as a pinch runner and scored the winning run. Rojas, who has not seen the field since suffering a shoulder injury Monday, was forced into action after Derek Dietrich hit by a pitch on his left wrist. Rojas stayed in the game and played defense,confirming previous reports that he'll look to play through the injury. Rojas will likely put his ailing shoulder to the test with Dietrich expected to miss a few games.
