Rojas is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.
After turning in his second two-homer game in as many Saturdays, Rojas will retreat to the bench for the series finale in what's likely just a routine rest day. Since settling in as Arizona's primary leadoff man May 26, Rojas is hitting .194 and getting on base at a .275 clip. He doesn't appear at risk of losing hold of a full-time role, though Rojas could end up settling lower in the Arizona lineup more frequently.
Rojas went 2-for-5 with a pair of solo homers in Saturday's loss to the Angels.
Rojas was the star of the show offensively for Arizona in the loss, going deep in the seventh and ninth innings. It was the second two-homer game of the month for the utility man, though he is batting only .184 (7-for-38) overall in June. Rojas ranks second on the team with nine homers on the campaign, though he has knocked in only 20 runs.
Rojas went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Angels.
Rojas' streaky season continues. The utility player entered the night batting .086 (3-for-35) over the previous 10 games. He's experienced vast stretches of peaks and valleys, batting .200 in April, .320 in May, and .152 thus far in June.
Rojas isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Athletics.
Rojas will get a breather after he went 0-for-8 with five strikeouts across the past two games. Ildemaro Vargas will start at second base and bat ninth.
Rojas went 2-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs in Saturday's 7-5 loss to Milwaukee.
Rojas took little time to snap an 0-for-9 skid at the plate, hitting a leadoff homer in the first inning. He went yard again in the seventh, and both long balls went over the center field fence. The 26-year-old has a .264/.341/.456 slash line with seven homers, 17 RBI, 29 runs scored and two stolen bases in 205 plate appearances. He's established himself as a leadoff hitter as well as a versatile option on defense.
Rojas is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets.
Rojas heads to the bench for the first time since May 10, ending a stretch of 21 consecutive starts for the 26-year-old. After a wretched start to the season, Rojas began to turn things around at the plate in late April and has since established himself as an everyday player. Though he'll be sitting with southpaw David Peterson on the mound, the lefty-hitting Rojas should still find himself in the lineup more often than not against both lefties and righties.
Rojas went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Giants.
Rojas ran his hit streak to six games, going 10-for-23 with five doubles and three RBI during that run. The utility player has been filling in at second base and right field while Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) and Kole Calhoun (hamstring) are sidelined. The Diamondbacks have dropped 10 straight, falling to last place in the NL West, so they may decide to begin preparing for next season. That means potentially handing second base to Rojas even when Cabrera returns.
Rojas went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the Rockies.
Rojas started in right field as Josh Reddick moved to center for the resting Ketel Marte. It was the third straight game with a two-base hit for Rojas, who has a nine for the season, tied for the lead among Diamondbacks hitters. The 27-year-old utility player continues to get regular playing time, filling in at second base and outfield while Arizona copes with injuries to Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) and Kole Calhoun (hamstring), both of whom are expected to be out until mid June or later. Rojas has taken advantage of the opportunity, positing a career-high slash line (.288/.354/.485) over 147 plate appearances.
Rojas started at shortstop and went 1-for-4 with a double in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.
Rojas spelled Nick Ahmed at shortstop and could see more consistent action in the infield going forward. He had been filling in at right field, making five straight starts there while Kole Calhoun (hamstring) is sidelined. That was before the Diamondbacks purchased the contract of Josh Reddick, the veteran right fielder who joined up with Arizona in April, then hit .304/.365/.478 in 11 games for Triple-A Reno. There's a glaring need at second base since Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) hit the injured list, and Rojas could be the primary fill-in there.
Rojas isn't starting Monday's game against the Marlins.
Rojas will get a breather after he went 7-for-15 with two doubles, two runs, a walk and two strikeouts in the last four games. Pavin Smith will shift to right field while Daulton Varsho takes over in center.
Rojas went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Arizona's 4-2 loss to the Mets on Saturday.
The Diamondbacks were quiet offensively Saturday, but Rojas produced another multi-hit game. He is currently riding an eight-game hitting streak in which he is batting .452 with four home runs, six RBI and nine runs. In contrast, he started the season 2-for-31. The 27-year-old is slashing .277/.355/.506 in 93 plate appearances.
Rojas went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Friday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Mets.
Hitting eighth in front of the pitcher didn't cramp Rojas' style, and he extended his hitting streak to seven games with the performance. The 26-year-old is slashing .429/.448/.929 over that stretch with four homers, six RBI and eight runs as he solidifies a spot in Arizona's everyday lineup.
Rojas isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Marlins.
Rojas has gone 8-for-19 with four home runs, a double, seven runs and six RBI across the last five games. However, Pavin Smith will shift to right field while Tim Locastro starts in center.
Rojas went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Marlins.
The 26-year-old got Arizona on the board in the fifth inning by taking Sandy Alcantara deep. Rojas is on a tear, going 8-for-19 over the last five games with four of his five homers on the year, and with Kole Calhoun (hamstring) likely out until mid-June, he'll get a chance to settle in as the starting right fielder.
Rojas went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two additional runs scored in the 14-6 loss Saturday to the Rockies.
Rojas took Lucas Gilbreath deep to lead off the ninth inning. This was Rojas' third game in a row with a home run. He is heating up at the right time for a team that is dealing with many injuries. The 27-year-old struggled to start the season, but Rojas is batting .394 with four home runs, nine RBI and 11 runs over his last 11 games.
Rojas went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 7-2 win over the Rockies.
Rojas took Jordan Sheffield deep with one on in the eighth inning Friday. This was Rojas' third home run of the season and second in as many games. The 27-year-old, who started his third straight game in right field in place of the injured Kole Calhoun (hamstring), is taking advantage of this opportunity to flash some power, although he is still slashing just .200/.304/.383 in 69 plate appearances.
Rojas started in right field and went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Thursday's victory over the Rockies.
The 26-year-old smacked a solo homer off Antonio Senzatela in the fourth inning, his second of the season. It was Rojas' second straight start in right following the injury to Kole Calhoun (hamstring) that landed him on the injured list. The left-handed hitting Rojas is slashing .196./.309/.333 as he looks to build off this current momentum.
Rojas started in right field and went 0-for-4 in Wednesday's 12-3 loss to the Padres.
The Diamondbacks placed Kole Calhoun (hamstring) on the injured list Wednesday and will need fill-ins for the next 10 days at minimum. That means Rojas, who made a leaping catch against the fence to rob Fernando Tatis of a home run, could be part of the outfield rotation in the near term. He'll split time with Pavin Smith as well as Daulton Varsho, who was summoned from the alternate camp Wednesday to help fill out an outfield missing Calhoun, Ketel Marte (hamstring) and Tim Locastro (finger).
Rojas entered Tuesday's game as a pinch runner and played right field after Kole Calhoun (hamstring) was removed from a 5-1 win over the Padres.
Calhoun came up lame after stealing third base and was pulled from the game. With Pavin Smith already in the game at first base, the Diamondbacks opted for the multi-positional Rojas as a replacement. Calhoun will have an MRI on Wednesday and presumably will miss that night's game at least. Manager Torey Lovullo has a few options in right field should Calhoun require a stay on the injured list. Smith tops the list followed by Rojas and Josh VanMeter.
Rojas went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI in a 7-0 win Sunday over the Braves.
Rojas started in right field in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Braves. The utility man knocked in Nick Ahmed with a double in the first inning, then again on a single in the sixth inning. Rojas often comes off the bench but has started three of the last four games. He is batting .191 in 56 plate appearances.
