Rojas went 1-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI in Sunday's win over the Phillies. Rojas drove in a pair during the fifth inning on a single to center field, giving Miami a 6-5 lead. The 29-year-old is off to a solid start in the month of July as he's hitting .304 with four RBI and three stolen bases through 14 games. Rojas will enter the break sporting a .254/.309/.348 slash line and a .657 OPS over 95 games in the first half.
Rojas will start at third base and bat seventh Sunday against the Phillies, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. Rojas' playing time trailed off earlier this month shortly after everyday third baseman Martin Prado's return from the disabled list, but the former has seen his starting opportunities tick back up heading into the break. With Prado getting a breather in the series finale, Rojas will enter the starting nine for the fourth time in five games. The 29-year-old's ability to play all four infield spots may continue to earn him a healthy workload, even though he lacks a direct path to a full-time role at any position.
Rojas is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rays. Rojas will get a well-deserved rest after playing all 16 innings at third base and finishing 2-for-5 with a pair of walks across seven plate appearances in the Marlins' 9-6 loss Tuesday. Yadiel Rivera will step in at third base in Rojas' stead and hit seventh in the series finale.
Rojas is out of Saturday's lineup against the Mets, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. He recently returned from a minor hand injury, and is hitting just .218 with zero home runs in 78 at-bats in June. JT Riddle will start at shortstop while Yadiel Rivera gets the nod at the hot corner.
Rojas (hand) is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. Rojas was held out of the lineup the last two days due to his sore hand, but he felt good enough to play the field for the final frame of Sunday's contest, and is ready to return to action Monday. Rojas will man the hot corner and hit sixth against Arizona starter Shelby Miller.
