Rojas, who has collected six hits in the last two games, told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that he's finally feeling comfortable at the plate, three weeks into his MLB tenure. "I'm seeing pitches well, I'm staying in the zone a lot better, not swinging at pitches out of the zone like I was early when I first came up," Rojas said. "I do feel better, but I couldn't say why that is." The Arizona native has hit safely in six straight games, going 10-for-22 with two home runs, two doubles, six runs and six RBI.

The Diamondbacks placed David Peralta (shoulder) on the injured list Saturday, so Rojas took over in left field against Milwaukee right-hander Chase Anderson. After an initial burst of activity upon his addition to Arizona's roster, Rojas is mired in a 2-for-21 (.095) slide, dropping his average to .200 over 11 games. He and the recently called up Tim Locastro should platoon in left field going forward.

Rojas had his contract selected from Triple-A Reno on Monday and was immediately put to work. With David Peralta battling neck stiffness, Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo gave the left-handed-hitting Rojas an opportunity against Colorado right-hander Peter Lambert. Rojas has put up strong numbers at Triple-A this season and is an intriguing bat with defensive versatility.
The Diamondbacks selected Rojas' contract from Triple-A Reno ahead of Monday's game against the Rockies.
The 25-year-old Rojas didn't enter this season with much buzz in prospect circles, but he put himself on the radar by slashing .315/.403/.575 with 20 home runs and 32 steals between Double-A Corpus Christi and Triple-A Round Rock in Houston's organization before he was one of four minor-league players sent to Arizona on July 31 in the Zack Greinke deal. Rojas continued to mash at Triple-A Reno, going 18-for-35 with eight extra-base hits in eight games with the affiliate before getting his first call to the big leagues. He'll likely see most of his initial opportunities at second base, with Ketel Marte likely shifting to center field on the occasions Rojas starts.
Rojas is batting .514/.575/.943 with three home runs and 14 RBI over eight games at Triple-A Reno.
Rojas was acquired by the Diamondbacks at the trade deadline, part of the return from the Astros for Zack Greinke. He plays multiple positions in the infield and outfield, bouncing around left field, right field, third base and shortstop. He could be of use at corner outfield in Arizona. The Diamondbacks' corner outfielders have collectively slugged .341 in 39 games since June 23.
Rojas was traded from the Astros to the Diamondbacks along with Corbin Martin, J.B. Bukauskas and Seth Beer in exchange for Zack Greinke, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
The 25-year-old infielder has impressive numbers at Triple-A this season: .310/.402/.586 with 12 home runs and 19 steals in 53 games. However, most evaluators project him to be a utility player at the highest level. The Diamondbacks will at least be able to give him a chance to carve out a role, as he was firmly blocked across the board in Houston.
Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said Sunday that Rojas is someone that is "seriously being considered for a spot if something comes up in the big leagues," Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Rojas, a 24-year-old infielder who plays second and third base, entered the season with little fanfare in prospect circles. The 2017 26th-round pick has overcome his modest pedigree to put himself on the cusp of the big leagues thanks to his outstanding production in the high minors. Rojas opened the season at Double-A Corpus Christi and posted a .967 OPS to go with 13 steals in 44 games, which earned him a promotion to Triple-A Round Rock last week. He's found early success at the dish in his first taste of Triple-A and could make his MLB debut later in 2019 if another injury hits the Houston infield or the respective rehabs of Jose Altuve (hamstring) and Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) proceed slower than anticipated.
