Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Sits again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas (shoulder) remains out of the lineup Monday against the White Sox.

Rojas left Saturday's game against the Dodgers and did not start Sunday's contest, though he did appear off the bench. Yadiel Rivera remains the starter at shortstop in his absence. Rojas is expected to test his shoulder prior to Monday's clash and is hopeful to start a game within the next few days, per Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Absent from Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas (shoulder) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Dodgers, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Rojas exited Saturday's contest early and was diagnosed with a shoulder strain. It's unclear how long the injury will keep him out, though Yadiel Rivera is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in his place.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Diagnosed with shoulder strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas was removed from Saturday's contest with a strained right shoulder, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

It was speculated that Rojas had exited the game due to an injury to his leg, but it was instead a shoulder injury. It's unclear how he suffered the injury or how long he will remain out of the lineup. Yadiel Rivera took over at shortstop in his place.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Removed from Saturday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas was removed from Saturday's contest against the Dodgers with potential injuries to his hand or leg, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Rojas was banged up throughout the contest, with the first potential injury occurring to his hand after he reached down to the ground to steady himself while striking out in the first frame. In the fourth inning, he fouled a ball off his left leg before ultimately being removed in the fifth inning. There are no details as to the severity of either potential injury, and Yadiel Rivera replaced him at shortstop.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas went 3-for-5 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

After going 0-for-7 to begin the second half, Rojas rebounded with his 11th multi-hit effort in his last 20 games -- a stretch during which he's slashing .361/.396/.482. The 30-year-old doesn't offer much upside in counting stats, but he's proving to be a useful fantasy asset for rosters that need a batting average boost.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Smacks first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas went 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

After going yard 11 times last season, he finally hit his first home run of 2019 to lead off Thursday's game. Despite the lack of over-the-fence power, Rojas has been able to tally extra-base hits, including eight doubles over the last 16 games. His potential for run production is limited at the top of a lackluster Marlins lineup, but he's shown off his speed this year with six stolen bases.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas went 3-for-3 with an RBI and a run in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

The 30-year-old just keeps on racking up base knocks. Rojas has seven multi-hit performances in his last 12 games, slashing .417/.473/.542 over that stretch, albeit without much production -- zero homers, one steal, five RBI and seven runs. In fact, he's still looking for his first home run this season after slugging a career-high 11 in 2018. However, Rojas already has a career-best 20 doubles to go along with a .294 batting average, so some of those two-baggers could start flying over the fence in the second half.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Collects four hits versus Natonals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas went 4-for-5 with three doubles, two RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base during Thursday's 8-5 loss to the Nationals.

Stephen Strasburg silenced most of Rojas' teammates, but he was a one-man wrecking crew in this one as he notched his second career four-hit game. He was at the heart each of his team's three scoring plays in this one, including a two-run double before scoring in the third inning. While Rojas has eight hits in this last 15 at-bats, this was the first time he's really hit the ball with authority, and he's not a particularly valuable fantasy asset at the moment, aside from the occasional stolen base.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Ejected from Tuesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas went 2-for-3 with a HBP and a double before being ejected from Tuesday's 6-1 loss to the Nationals.

It's not entirely clear what Rojas said to warrant his eighth-inning ejection, as he was in the dugout at the time after striking out, but his issues with home plate umpire Mike Estabrook apparently extended back to a blown check-swing call in his first at-bat. He's unlikely to face additional league discipline -- a good thing for the Marlins, considering the shortstop's .333/.415/.444 slash line over his last 20 games.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Settling into leadoff role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas will start at shortstop and lead off Saturday against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

At least for the time being, Rojas looks to be the Marlins' top option in the table-setting role, as he'll lead off for a fifth consecutive game. With no home runs in 275 plate appearances, Rojas brings little to no power to the table but has at least been somewhat useful in deeper mixed leagues and NL-only formats thanks to his five stolen bases and .274 batting average.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Three hits in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Six different Marlins had multi-hit efforts in the 16-0 rout, giving Rojas a chance to be productive even from the bottom of the order. The shortstop has hit safely in seven straight games and 13 of his last 14, slashing .346/.386/.404 over that stretch with two steals, five RBI and seven runs.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Wednesday's win over the Tigers.

The shortstop put together his first multi-hit performance since May 1, hitting a miserable .151 (8-for-53) in 15 games in between. Rojas is still looking for his first homer of 2019 after slugging a career-high 11 last year, but his .250/.307/.291 slash line through 44 contests is otherwise right in line with his career numbers.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Rejoins Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas (ribs) is starting at shortstop and batting eighth Friday against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Rojas was removed from Wednesday's game after an issue cropped up with his rib cage, but he's good to go following Thursday's scheduled off day. The 30-year-old will look to break out of his current slump, as he is 2-for-20 over his last six games.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Day-to-day with rib issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas described the injury that took him out of Wednesday's game as an issue with his rib cage, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. "Nothing serious," Rojas said. "I don't think it's muscular or anything, or something that is going to keep me from playing. I feel one of my ribs went out of place. Every time I get it adjusted, I feel fine."

It doesn't sound like Rojas will be out for long, as he could return to the lineup as soon as Friday. The veteran shortstop is slashing .242/.299/.288 through 39 games and is still looking for his first homer in 2019 after launching a career-high 11 last year.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Dealing with back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas exited Wednesday's game against the Rays with back spasms, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Rojas appeared to tweak his back while running the bases and attempted to remain in the game, but was removed shortly after retaking the field. The 30-year-old will have a full day to recover with Thursday's scheduled off day and should be considered day-to-day.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Leading off Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas will start at shortstop and lead off Thursday against the Cubs, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Rojas usually bats in the bottom half of the order versus right-handed pitching, but he'll draw a plum assignment against Yu Darvish with normal leadoff hitter Curtis Granderson resting in the day game after a night game. No matter where in the lineup he's slotted in this season, Rojas has made little fantasy impact with a .259 average, zero home runs and one stolen base across 126 plate appearances.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Registers eighth RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Rojas got the Marlins on the board in the fourth inning with an infield single, but it was the only run Miami would put up on the day. He extended his hitting streak to five games following Sunday's performance.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas is out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Rojas began the season in a short-side platoon at shortstop with JT Riddle but had started the last four games entering Sunday. Rojas has certainly looked the better of the two at the plate with a .316/.372/.421 slash line. Riddle will nonetheless enter the starting lineup for the series finale, batting sixth.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Collects three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas went 3-for-3 with three runs scored and one RBI in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Phillies.

Rojas had his second three-hit game of the season as he received the start at shortstop for the fourth straight game. The 30-year-old is slashing .316/.372/.421 with four doubles and six RBI through 38 at-bats.

Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Back-to-back starts vs. righties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rojas will start at shortstop and bat fifth in Thursday's game against the Reds, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Rojas entered the season in the short side of a platoon at shortstop with JT Riddle, but he may have emerged as the Marlins' preferred option at the position. The lefty-hitting Riddle is on the bench for the second straight game against a right-handed starting pitcher (Sonny Gray), affording Rojas another spin in the lineup. Rojas is slashing a modest .250/.323/.321 through 31 plate appearances this season, but he's still been more effective than Riddle, who is off to a 4-for-23 start and has struck out nine times while taking no walks.
