  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Heads to bench Tuesday

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Heads to bench Saturday

    Rojas is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rockies.

    Rojas hasn't been a platoon player since his return, and in fact he has some reverse splits so far this year, but he will sit Saturday against lefty Austin Gomber. Jake Hager will man the hot corner for Arizona. After a three-hit game Friday, Rojas is now batting .260/.326/.385 with four homers and five stolen bases in 46 games this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Keeps line moving in win

    Rojas went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a walk and two runs scored in Friday's 9-3 win over the Rockies.

    Rojas has posted multiple hits in three of his last four games, going 7-for-18 (.389) in that span. He was effective at keeping the line moving Friday, again serving in the leadoff role. The versatile 28-year-old is up to a .260/.326/.385 slash line with four home runs, 18 RBI, 27 runs scored, seven doubles and five stolen bases through 46 contests, and he's claimed a near-everyday role at third base with his solid hitting.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Leads off again

    Rojas batted leadoff and went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-7 win over Detroit.

    This was the second straight game in the leadoff spot for Rojas, both against righties, as it appears manager Torey Lovullo is giving Daulton Varsho a break from that role. Since being hit on the right shoulder blade May 27, Varsho had gone 15-for-86 (.174) with a .428 OPS before delivering a pair of hits, including a three-run home run, Sunday. Rojas has experience as a leadoff batter -- a career 83 games started at the top of the order is his most of any spot in the order -- and has generally hit among the top three in the order since the middle of May. The infielder initially batted in the lower half of the order following a stay on the injured list that forced him to miss the first five weeks of the season.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Resting Tuesday

    Rojas will sit Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Rojas sits after starting 12 straight games, a stretch in which he hit just .216/.2732/.333. Jake Hager will get the nod at the hot corner Tuesday.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Adds steal Sunday

    Rojas went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Twins.

    Rojas got aboard with a single in the sixth inning, stole second and scored on a Buddy Kennedy grand slam. While he's gone 3-for-20 (.150) with six strikeouts in his last five games, Rojas has added two of his five steals this season in that span. The versatile 27-year-old has a .254/.329/.388 slash line with four home runs, 16 RBI, 21 runs scored, four doubles and a triple. He's primarily played at third base lately, taking on an everyday role.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Notches steal in loss

    Rojas went 0-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and three strikeouts in Tuesday's 5-3 extra-innings loss to the Reds.

    Rojas walked and stole second in the 11th inning. He represented the winning run, but Ketel Marte's groundout ended the inning. This was the first time all year Rojas has been held without a hit in consecutive games -- he's 0-for-9 against the Reds in this series. The 27-year-old's mini-slump has dropped his slash line to .263/.346/.415 with four home runs, four stolen bases, 16 RBI and 19 runs scored through 33 contests.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Sends home two in loss

    Rojas went 1-for-5 with a two-run double in Friday's loss against the Phillies.

    Rojas doubled home Jake McCarthy and Alek Thomas in the seventh inning to bring the game within one run, but the Phillies still escaped with a win. Rojas now has at least one hit in each of his last three games and in six of his last eight, going 8-for-32 (.250) with four extra-base hits in that longer span.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Part of ninth-inning rally

    Rojas went 1-for-4 with a single, two RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 5-4 come-from-behind win over the Reds.

    Rojas' two-run single was amidst Arizona's four-run ninth inning that turned a loss into a win. He's been a remarkably consistent bat in the Diamondbacks' order, never going more than one game without a hit. The team's primary third baseman is slashing .284/.369/.463 over 28 games and 111 plate appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Slugs fourth homer

    Rojas went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a triple and an additional run scored during Wednesday's win over Cincinnati.

    Rojas returned to the lineup after being benched Tuesday and slugged his first home run since May 20, when he hit three against the Cubs. He added a leadoff triple in the seventh and came around to score on a Ketel Marte single one batter later. Across 27 games, Rojas is slashing .286/.368/.473 with four homers and 11 RBI.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Knocks in three

    Rojas went 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Dodgers.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Returns to lineup

    Rojas (hand) is starting Thursday against the Dodgers.

    Rojas was available off the bench if needed during Tuesday's series finale against the Royals, but he remained off the field for a third consecutive game due to his bruised left hand. However, he'll start at the hot corner and bat second during Thursday's matchup.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Available off bench

    Rojas (hand) was available off the bench if needed for Tuesday's game, Jack Sommers of MLB.com reports.

    The Diamondbacks did not use Rojas in their 8-6 win over the Royals. The infielder took infield and batting practice ahead of Tuesday's series finale with Kansas City, but manager Torey Lovullo preferred to "stay away" from using Rojas if possible. With a scheduled day off Wednesday, Rojas will get another 24 hours of healing in before the series opener against the Dodgers on Thursday.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Remains on bench

    Rojas (hand) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

    Rojas will be on the bench for the third game in a row due to a bruised left hand. With Rojas' main replacement in the lineup, Drew Ellis, exiting Monday's 9-5 win with side discomfort and also taking a seat Tuesday, the Diamondbacks will break in Jake Hager at third base.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Not in Monday's lineup

    Rojas (hand) isn't starting Monday against the Royals.

    Rojas sustained a bruised left hand in Saturday's win over the Cubs and will be held out of the lineup for a second straight game, even with right-hander Zack Greinke on the mound for Kansas City on Monday. Drew Ellis will remain at the hot corner and bat eighth.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Sitting out Sunday

    Rojas (hand) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

    The lefty-hitting Rojas will sit out Sunday's series finale after suffering a bruised left hand in Saturday's 7-6 win, but it's unclear if the injury or the fact that southpaw Wade Miley is on the hill for Chicago is what's keeping him out of the lineup. Regardless, newly recalled Drew Ellis will fill in at third base for Rojas.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Dealing with bruised hand

    Rojas left Saturday's game against the Cubs with a left hand contusion.

    Adding insult to injury, the bruise occured when Rojas was struck in the hand by a pitch that he swung at and struck out on, but he's at least escaped without a serious injury. He may need some time off to wait for his swelling and soreness to subside, but it appears that he's avoided the longer absence which would come with a fracture. Yonny Hernandez replaced him and could see some extra playing time if Rojas winds up being forced to sit for a few days.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Exits with left hand injury

    Rojas was removed from Saturday's game against the Cubs after being hit by a pitch on his left hand in the top of the first inning, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Rojas swung when he was hit by a pitch, so he struck out during his lone plate appearance Saturday and was replaced defensively in the bottom of the first. The severity of the 27-year-old's injury isn't yet clear, but he should tentatively be considered day-to-day. If Rojas misses additional time, Yonny Hernandez should see increased work at the hot corner.

  • Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Blasts three home runs Friday

    Rojas went 3-for-5 with three home runs, four RBI and a strikeout in Friday's 10-6 win over the Cubs.

    Rojas failed to record an extra-base hit in his first 13 games of the season, but he experienced a power surge at Wrigley Field on Friday. The 27-year-old has crossed the plate in five of the last six games and has gone 7-for-19 with three homers, seven runs, six RBI and a steal during that time.
