  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Designated for assignment

    Rojas was designated for assignment by the Angels on Monday.

    Rojas has been at Triple-A Salt Lake since early May, but he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster after he was recently reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list. Over 13 minor-league games this year, he's hit .224 with a triple, nine runs, six RBI and a stolen base.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Reinstated from injured list

    Rojas (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

    Rojas spent nearly two weeks away from Triple-A Salt Lake, but he'll be able to rejoin the minor-league club after clearing the league's health and safety protocols. Over 11 minor-league games this year, he's hit .256 with a triple, eight runs, four RBI and a stolen base.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Goes on Triple-A COVID-19 IL

    Triple-A Salt Lake placed Rojas on its COVID-19 injured list Sunday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Though he was optioned to Salt Lake on Friday, Rojas would have been a candidate to rejoin the Angels after infielder David Fletcher (hip) was placed on the injured list Sunday. However, Rojas' move to Salt Lake's COVID-19 IL will thwart those plans and prompt the Angels to bring Luis Rengifo up from Triple-A. The transaction also simultaneously opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for outfielder Aaron Whitefield, whose contract was selected from Double-A Rocket City.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Sent back down

    Rojas was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    He got into just one game during this latest stint in the majors. For the season, Rojas has a .130 average with zero home runs, zero steals and eight strikeouts in 23 at-bats.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Gets call to bigs

    The Angels recalled Rojas from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    In a corresponding move, Jo Adell was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake, which will allow him to play on an everyday basis in the minors. Meanwhile, Rojas gives the big club some more defensive versatility, as he has experience at three infield spots and in the corner outfield. Rojas will likely join Adell at Salt Lake as soon as utility man Matt Duffy (illness) is cleared to return from the COVID-19 injured list.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Optioned to Triple-A

    Rojas was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.

    Rojas began the season on the major-league roster since Taylor Ward (groin) was on the injured list. The 29-year-old Rojas appeared in six games and hit .150 with two doubles, a run, an RBI and six strikeouts. He'll now head to the minors after Ward was reinstated from the 10-day IL on Saturday.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Wins Opening Day roster spot

    Rojas is on the Angels' Opening Day roster, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Rojas will take on a bench role for the Angels early in the regular season since Taylor Ward (groin) has been placed on the 10-day injured list. Rojas appeared in 61 major-league games last year and hit .208 with six homers, 26 runs, 15 RBI and two steals.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: In play for roster spot

    Rojas has the "slight edge" for a spot on the Angels' Opening Day roster if the team decides to carry nine rather than 10 relief pitchers, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Joe Maddon indicated Monday that Los Angeles is still deciding whether to carry nine or 10 relievers at the start of the season, and the team has yet to finalize its roster. If the Angels do indeed decide to go with a nine-man bullpen, Rojas is the slight favorite over Michael Stefanic to earn the team's final roster spot. The 29-year-old swung a hot bat this spring, slashing .444/.545/.926 with three home runs, eight RBI and a 6:3 BB:K.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Smacks third homer

    Rojas went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a 6-4 loss to the Mariners on Saturday.

    Rojas took Seattle starter Chris Flexen deep to left in the fifth inning to tie the game at 1-1 but was removed in the seventh for a pinch hitter. The utility man is just 2-for-26 over his last nine games and is slashing .212/.278/.406 on the season.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Not starting Friday

    Rojas isn't in the lineup Friday against Seattle.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Rojas isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

    Rojas went 0-for-2 with a run and a walk in Tuesday's series opener, but he'll be on the bench for the third time in the last four games. Juan Lagares will start in right field and bat seventh.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Sitting again Sunday

    Rojas is on the bench Sunday against the Mariners.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Takes seat Saturday

    Rojas is out of the lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

    Rojas started the past seven games in right field but will head to the bench after posting a .494 OPS during that stretch. Juan Lagares will start in his place Saturday.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Sticks in lineup

    Rojas will start in right field and bat sixth Sunday against the Athletics.

    Rojas will pick up his third start in four games, and he looks like he'll fill a near-everyday role in the Los Angeles outfield while all of Mike Trout (calf), Jo Adell (abdomen) and Justin Upton (back) are on the injured list. Neither Trout nor Adell is expected to play again in 2021, while Upton's return date is up in the air. Those absences should lead to plenty of opportunities for Rojas over the final two weeks of the campaign.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Homers in win over White Sox

    Rojas went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Thursday in a 9-3 victory over the White Sox. He was also caught stealing.

    Rojas, who was recalled from Triple-A on Wednesday, received his first start with the big-league club since early July and responded with a productive afternoon. He singled in the second inning, then homered off Reynaldo Lopez in the fourth to extend the Angels' lead to 7-0. It was the fifth long ball of the year for Rojas, who is hitting just .220 with a .702 OPS in 141 plate appearances.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Called up to replace Adell

    The Angels recalled Rojas from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Though he was able to earn a spot on the Angels' Opening Day roster, Rojas hasn't impressed across multiple stints with the big club this season, slashing .211/.263/.406 in 137 plate appearances. With a .759 OPS for Salt Lake on the campaign, Rojas hasn't performed dramatically better in the minors, but he could be in store for semi-regular playing time nonetheless after Jo Adell (back) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. In addition to Adell, the Angels already have two other starting outfielders on the IL in Mike Trout (calf) and Justin Upton (back).

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Sent to Triple-A

    Rojas was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

    Rojas has appeared in 46 games for the Angels this season, but he was unable to retain his spot on the big-league roster while hitting .211/.263/.406 with four homers, 13 doubles, 10 RBI and 19 runs in 137 plate appearances. The 28-year-old could rejoin the Halos later on when a utility player is needed.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: Remains on bench Wednesday

    Rojas is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Boston, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    It appeared that Rojas could be on line for an extended look at third base following Anthony Rendon's (hamstring) placement on the injured list, but he will take a seat for the second straight game Wednesday. Luis Rengifo will man the hot corner and bat ninth.

  • Angels' Jose Rojas: No longer starting Tuesday

    Rojas has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Yankees.

    Per Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times, Rojas is not dealing with any sort of injury and his removal from the lineup is simply a result of Taylor Ward (finger) feeling ready to play following pregame batting practice. Ward's entrance into the lineup pushes Luis Rengifo to third base, leaving Rojas in a bench role Tuesday.
