Player Outlook
Josh Rojas played all over the field for the Diamondbacks in 2021-2022 while posting decent numbers, but he was unsuccessful in his 59 games with Arizona last summer with a .589 OPS, and was traded to Seattle in the deal for Paul Sewald. Once added to the Mariners roster, Rojas was in the lineup on a regular basis against right-handed pitchers, and he improved his slash to a respectable .272/.321/.400 while swiping six bases over 46 games.While it was encouraging to see the numbers increase upon joining his new club, the overall numbers were still ugly, and he ranked near the bottom of baseball in hard-hit percentage, expected slugging, barrel rate and expected weight on-base average. He also remained a liability against left-handed pitching with a .562 OPS, and it seems likely he won't be in the lineup in 2024 against southpaws very often. Rojas should have eligibility at second and third base and has a chance to carve out a regular role with the Mariners, but his fantasy value is severely limited as a player that isn't likely to contribute in many categories.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: On bench for nightcap

    Rojas is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader in Colorado. Rojas will get a breather after he went 1-for-3 with a walk in the team's 2-1 extra-inning loss in Sunday's matinee. Luis Urias will replace him at the hot corner and bat eighth in the nightcap.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: Delivers as pinch hitter Wednesday

    Rojas entered Wednesday's win over the Reds as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning and remained in the game at third base, going 1-for-2 with a solo home run. Rojas immediately delivered upon being inserted into the game to lead off the seventh, slugging a solo blast for his first home run of the season and extending the Mariners' lead to 3-1 at the time. The 29-year-old has now hit safely in five straight games, and with a .343 average and .896 OPS overall this year, he's clearly been one of the most productive hitters in a collection of mostly underachieving Seattle bats.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: On base thrice in loss

    Rojas went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a walk and a run in a loss to the Brewers on Sunday. It was a busy afternoon for Rojas, who also pitched the eighth inning of the lopsided loss and gave up a two-run home run to William Contreras. Rojas' exploits at the plate were much more noteworthy, however, as the 29-year-old extended a season-opening hot streak that sees him now boasting a .412 average and .915 OPS across his first 18 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: Thriving in Cactus League play

    Rojas is hitting .357 (5-for-13) with two doubles, a home run, five RBI, three walks, a stolen base and three runs over his first seven Cactus League games. Rojas went 1-for-2 with an RBI single, a bases-loaded walk and a run in the Mariners' Cactus League win over the Royals on Wednesday, his latest taste of spring success. The 29-year-old produced a solid .272/.321/.400 line over 46 games after coming to Seattle in a trade with the Diamondbacks last season, and he appears set to primarily split time with Luis Urias at third base while also occasionally filling in for Jorge Polanco at second in the coming season.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: Could see more time at third

    Rojas, who's projected to fill the strong side of an infield platoon with Dylan Moore, is now likelier to do so at third base rather than second as a result of the Jorge Polanco trade, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. Kramer notes that Polanco should play either second base or shortstop based on his big-league resume. As a result, Rojas -- who contributed a solid .272 batting average and .721 OPS across 134 plate appearances after his trade from the Diamondbacks last season -- could see the majority of his time at the hot corner. Offseason arrival Luis Urias is also a candidate to see time at third base. Rojas could end up in a super-utility role instead, as he's played every position except catcher, first base and center field during his five-year MLB career.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: Receives $3.1 million from Mariners

    The Mariners and Rojas avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.1 million contract Thursday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. Rojas was in his second year of arbitration eligibility. The 29-year-old infielder posted a .589 OPS with the Diamondbacks in 2023 before putting up a .721 OPS following a trade to the Mariners. Rojas looks to be at the top of Seattle's second-base depth chart, although he'll have to hold off others.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: Clubs homer in win

    Rojas went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two total runs scored in Friday's 8-0 win over the Rangers. Rojas had gone 26 games without a homer, hitting a paltry .236 in that span, but he swatted a solo shot in the third inning and added an RBI single in the fourth in Friday's contest. The second baseman is batting .280 with Seattle, an improvement on the .228/.292/.296 slash line over 59 games he managed with Arizona this season prior to be dealt to the M's. All four of his homers have come with his new squad, and he's added 40 RBI, 47 runs scored, 12 stolen bases and 17 doubles between both clubs this year.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: Sitting against southpaw

    Rojas is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the A's. Rojas still has not started against a southpaw since joining the Mariners, so it should come as no surprise that he is opening on the bench Monday with left-hander JP Sears on the bump for Oakland.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: On base thrice in loss

    Rojas went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run in a loss to the Reds on Tuesday. Rojas authored one of four two-hit efforts for the Mariners, posting his out of the bottom of the order. The trade deadline acquisition had been mired in a 2-for-15 funk in the seven games since his previous multi-hit tally, but a productive second half of August has helped Rojas maintain an impressive .282/.333/.436 slash line in 25 games with the Mariners thus far.
