  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Swipes another bag

    Rojas went 1-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 4-3 win over the Cubs.

    Rojas reached base safely for a sixth straight game since coming off the injured list and has swiped bags in consecutive games. He's settling in as the team's primary third baseman, although manager Torey Lovullo is shuttling three infielders -- Rojas, Nick Ahmed and Geraldo Perdomo -- between third and shortstop.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Reaches base in five straight

    Rojas went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Wednesday's 11-3 loss to Miami.

    Rojas has reached base safely in all five games since being activated off the injured list last week. The steal was the first for the infielder, who had a combined 10 stolen bases last season between MLB and the minors and was a consistent double-digit thief as a full-timer in the minors.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Not starting Sunday

    Rojas is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Rockies.

    Rojas was activated from the injured list Friday and started the past two games at third base, and he'll receive a day off after going 2-for-7 with a walk, a run and a strikeout. Geraldo Perdomo will man the hot corner in his place during the series finale.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Slots in at 3B

    Rojas started at third base for a second consecutive game and went 1-for-4 in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Rockies.

    Rojas started both games since being activated off the injured list, slotting in at the hot corner in each contest. It looks like there's no need for Arizona manager Torey Lovullo to ease him back into the lineup, and Rojas appears to be the Diamondbacks' primary third sacker.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Singles, scores in return

    Rojas started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's 4-1 win over the Rockies.

    Rojas was activated from the injured list Friday and made his season debut. He's expected to be the primary third baseman while also moving around the infield to keep shortstop Nick Ahmed and second baseman Ketel Marte fresh and healthy. That rotation, along with off days for himself, opens up plate appearances for prospect Geraldo Perdomo, who remains on the roster following Rojas' activation.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Activated Friday

    Rojas (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Friday's game against the Rockies.

    He will presumably slot into the lineup after going 2-for-5 with a double, a steal, four walks and one strikeout in two rehab games. Rojas' power could be affected by the deadened baseball, but he should play almost every day and is eligible at several positions.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Rehabbing at Reno

    Rojas (oblique) has played two games as part of a rehab assignment for Triple-A Reno. He's 2-for-5 with four walks, a double, two RBI and a stolen base.

    Rojas served as the designated hitter Tuesday then third base Wednesday, each time playing nine innings. The Diamondbacks plan to welcome him back at some point during a homestand that kicks off Friday against the Rockies.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Heads out on rehab assignment

    Rojas (oblique) will soon begin a rehab assignment and is expected back in the majors during Arizona's upcoming homestand, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Rojas, who has been getting at-bats in extended spring training games, will play for "one or maybe two games" at Triple-A Reno. The rehab assignment likely rules out a return while the Diamondbacks finish a road trip in Miami, but Rojas could make his season debut at some point during the nine-game homestand that begins Friday against Colorado. He played seven innings at shortstop Saturday, but that was to ensure he's comfortable moving around the infield if needed. Lovullo indicated Rojas will see most of his innings at third base.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: May need more time

    Rojas (oblique) is unlikely to return for Arizona's series against the Marlins beginning Monday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Rojas is still progressing and taking at-bats in extended spring training. It's unclear if the organization wants to see him on a minor-league rehab assignment or if at-bats at the team's training facility are enough.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Sees game action

    Rojas (oblique) played five innings of a game at extended spring training Tuesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Rojas had been taking batting practice and doing fielding drills, but Tuesday's activity was his first game action while recovering from injury. He's scheduled to take Wednesday off before returning to action Thursday. Rojas was seemingly headed for an everyday role at third base when the oblique injury cropped up during spring training. Since then, shortstop Nick Ahmed returned from a shoulder injury and shortstop prospect Geraldo Perdomo has been eased in to third base. If Perdomo remains in the majors to play the hot corner, Rojas could revert to the utility infield role he filled when he first came up in 2019. The Diamondbacks do not plan to use him in the outfield, a nod to the defensive lapses made by several players that have been asked to defend positions at which they are less familiar.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Ramps up to velocity machine

    Rojas (oblique) was scheduled to hit off a velocity machine Thursday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo indicated facing the machine is a step up from normal batting practice, which suggests Rojas is progressing from the Grade 2 strain suffered late in spring training. Upon his return, Rojas is expected to serve as the Diamondbacks' primary third baseman.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Swings bat

    Rojas (oblique) has begun swinging a bat, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    That's a seemingly quick progression for Rojas, who was diagnosed with a Grade 2 strain. The Diamondbacks are getting by at third base with a rotation of bodies until Rojas is ready to rejoin the team.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Officially lands on 10-day IL

    Rojas (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Manager Torey Lovullo said Sunday that Rojas will miss "weeks, not days" due to a Grade 2 right oblique strain, so his placement on the injured list isn't very surprising. Drew Ellis will start at third base and bat eighth Opening Day for Arizona, while Sergio Alcantara should also see playing time at the hot corner while Rojas is sidelined.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Out with Grade 2 oblique strain

    Manager Torey Lovullo said Sunday that Rojas will be out for "weeks, not days" after being diagnosed with a Grade 2 right oblique strain, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Rojas was set to start on the left side of Arizona's infield, but he'll now be sidelined for Opening Day with the oblique strain. The 31-year-old could be sidelined for at least the first month of the campaign, though he doesn't yet have an official timeline for his return. Sergio Alcantara and Drew Ellis could see more playing time as a result of the injury.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Starts at shortstop

    Rojas started at shortstop and went 1-for-2 with a double in Monday's spring training game against the Dodgers.

    Rojas was the first to step in for injured shortstop Nick Ahmed (shoulder) and could be a permanent fill-in. Ahmed is considering all options -- anything to avoid surgery -- so there's a need to find someone to slot in at shortstop for the immediate future. Rojas was penciled in as the starter at third base, but there could be a bigger need at short. He started 39 games at shortstop in 2021.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Starts at 3B

    Rojas went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, three RBI and a second run scored in Sunday's spring-training game against the Royals.

    Rojas started at third base and batted second in his Cactus League debut. The versatile infielder is the leading candidate to start at third base, and he's approaching the competition like it's his to lose, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. The Diamondbacks' leadership team have talked about bringing in an established third baseman, which would move Rojas back to a utility role, but no player addition is imminent. However it shakes out, Rojas is poised to garner 500-550 plate appearances, as he did in 2021.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Works out at 3B

    Rojas has been working at third base in the early days of camp, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Arizona general manager Mike Hazen said the team is still evaluating the situation at third base and could add a candidate outside the organization, so it's not a lock that Rojas becomes the everyday man at the position. The GM said if they do add someone, it was "more realistic" that it would be as the result of a trade than free agency. Rojas can play multiple positions, and the Diamondbacks understand the value of that versatility. Hazen told Steve Gilbert of MLB.com on Wednesday that Rojas, who has outfield experience, will stick mainly in the infield in 2022. If Rojas serves in an infield-utility role, the current in-house candidates for the hot corner include Drew Ellis, Josh VanMeter and Matt Davidson, who is a non-roster invitee.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Uncertain role in 2022

    Rojas is one of several players that could start at third base in 2022, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    Arizona general manager Mike Hazen talked about the possibility of adding a third baseman, particularly one with years of control, back in November, but the lockout-impacted offseason prevented the Diamondbacks from signing or trading for one. The in-house candidates start with Rojas, who enters camp with no restrictions following a November procedure to clean up the AC joint in his left shoudler, per Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. However, the team likes his versatility, which includes experience at all infield positions and corner outfield. Josh VanMeter and Drew Ellis are also in the mix. Shortstop prospect Geraldo Perdomo would have an outside shot at the job, as Nick Ahmed is expected to open at short this season.
