Rojas is expected to begin the regular season as the Marlins' starting shortstop despite a lackluster .250/.308/.458 slash line through 26 Grapefruit League plate appearances.
The 31-year-old isn't in the lineup for his offensive contributions but instead to provide steady defense behind a pitching staff that often needs all the help it can get. Rojas' hold on the starting job at the six is likely to be tenuous once the regular season begins, however; Jon Berti could push for more playing time if he keeps running wild as he did at the end of last year, and the organization may want to reward top prospect Jazz Chisholm with a callup if he proves himself at Triple-A Wichita.
Rojas is not in Sunday's lineup against the Phillies.
He hit .238 with zero home runs and one steal in his last 10 games. Jon Berti will start at shortstop and lead off.
Rojas is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.
Rojas doubled five times over his last four games, but manager Don Mattingly decided it was time to give Rojas his first day off since Sept. 11. Jon Berti will get the start at shortstop in Rojas' place.
Rojas and the Marlins agreed to a two-year contract Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the contract buys out one year of arbitration, one year of free agency, and includes a team option for a third year.
Rojas has been a steady presence for the Marlins' infield for three years in a row, so the team decided to lock him up at least through the end of the 2021 season. With the new deal in hand, expect Rojas to open the 2020 campaign as the Marlins' starting shortstop.
Rojas went 4-for-6 with three doubles and six RBI to help the Marlins to a 12-6 victory over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
It was a massive game for Rojas, who drove in half of his team's runs on the strength of a trio of two-baggers. He hasn't provided much power this season, with just five homers in 122 games, but the 30-year-old has managed a solid .288 average and the three doubles give him 27 this season. Still, he's slugging just .388, so performances like this haven't been a particularly common occurrence.
Rojas is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Brewers.
He is 7-for-32 (.219) with one home run and one steal in seven games this month. Jon Berti is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff.
Rojas went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Monday's 8-3 loss to Milwaukee.

Rojas is not in Friday's lineup against the Royals.
He will sit for the second game in a row in favor of Jon Berti. While Rojas started three straight games after coming off the injured list Sept. 1, it now looks like a clear timeshare at shortstop.

Rojas completed a five-game rehab stint between High-A Jupiter and Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday, clearing the way for his return to the majors. The 30-year-old had a .267/.309/.427 slash line in 22 games after the All-Star break before going down with the right hamstring strain.
Rojas (hamstring) moved his rehab assignment to Triple-A New Orleans on Monday.
Rojas heads to the Pacific Coast League after back-to-back rehab games with High-A Jupiter over the weekend, with the 30-year-old going 1-for-7 with a double between those contests. He'll presumably play in a couple games for New Orleans before likely returning from the 10-day injured list when rosters expand Sunday. Once reinstated, Rojas should take over as the Marlins' primary shortstop, with Jon Berti potentially shifting to the outfield as a result.
Rojas (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter on Friday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
He is expected to play five innings in his first rehab game. Rojas has been out since Aug. 6 and should not require a lengthy rehab assignment.

Rojas (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Rojas exited Tuesday's game against the Mets with a right hamstring strain, and a subsequent MRI confirmed the issue is serious enough to keep the shortstop on the shelf for at least the next 10 days. Deven Marrero was summoned from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding move, while Jon Berti, who is starting at shortstop Wednesday, will likely fill in at shortstop while Rojas is on the shelf.
Rojas (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
While the Marlins haven't announced any roster moves yet, Rojas looks like he could be headed to the injured list, as another infielder (Deven Marrero) is up from Triple-A New Orleans as a member of the taxi squad, according to Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald. Rojas was diagnosed with a strained right hamstring following his departure from Tuesday's 5-0 loss, but the Marlins are still awaiting the results of an MRI before putting a timeline on his return. Jon Berti will get the starting nod at shortstop and as the Marlins' leadoff man Wednesday and should be in line to fill those duties for the duration of Rojas' absence.
Rojas exited Tuesday's game versus the Mets with a right hamstring strain, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Rojas is out of the lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Mets, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Jon Berti will fill in at shortstop and atop the order as Rojas sits for the first time in 10 games in what likely amounts to maintenance. Expect Rojas to check back into the lineup for the second game of the twin bill, with his absence from the front end of the doubleheader sparing him from a tough matchup versus Mets ace Jacob deGrom. Rojas is batting .271 with three home runs, seven RBI and 11 runs in his 19 games since the All-Star break.

Rojas suffered the injury while running from first to third in the bottom of the third inning Thursday. The shortstop was 1-for-2 prior to being replaced by Yadiel Rivera. The Marlins will likely wait and see how Rojas is feeling during Friday's off day before determining his status for Saturday's series opener against the Rays.
