Rojas (finger) took part in the Marlins' batting practice session prior to Thursday's game against the Rockies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. After hitting off a tee two days earlier, Rojas took the next step forward in his recovery from a fractured left finger by taking full swings against soft-toss pitching. The fact that the injury is to Rojas' non-throwing hand will likely put him in store for a shorter rehab program, but the Marlins may still want to see him play in a rehab game or two at Triple-A Jacksonville before reinstating him from the 10-day injured list. Jazz Chisholm will continue to fill in at shortstop while Rojas is on the mend.
Rojas (finger) is beginning tee work and taking ground balls Tuesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. This marks a notable step in Rojas' return from a fractured and dislocated left index finger. With a .275 average before the injury, Rojas was undeniably one of the Marlins' most consistent hitters and has been sorely missed since landing on the injured list May 28.
X-rays on Rojas's dislocated left index finger Tuesday also revealed a small fracture, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. It's unclear how this latest update could impact Rojas's return timeline, but it certainly won't help the shortstop get back on the field sooner. The 32-year-old did begin range-of-motion activities Tuesday, which at the very least indicates that he is starting to make progress toward a return. Rojas is eligible to come off the 10-day inured list June 8, but he seems extremely likely to remain sidelined longer.
Rojas (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The 32-year-old suffered a dislocated left index finger Thursday, and it was only a matter of time before he shifted to the injured list. Rojas is eligible to be activated June 8, though it's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined. Jazz Chisholm (ankle) and Jose Devers should work at shortstop in his absence for Miami.
Rojas will require time on the injured list after he suffered a dislocated finger Thursday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports. Rojas will undergo further testing to determine the extent of the injury, but the the team is reportedly concerned about the issue. Jose Devers stepped in at shortstop Thursday, but Jazz Chisholm (ankle) could see most of the playing time at shortstop in Rojas' absence, while Isan Diaz could see increased time at second base.
