Latest Update Miguel Rojas hit 1st career home run in loss to Tigers Thu Jul, 10, 03:19 AM
Is an excellent defender with soft hands and good range. He also boasts enough arm strength to play on the left side of the infield, especially shortstop.
Flaws: : Lacks ideal power for an everyday player, and he doesn't make up for it with enough stolen-base prowess either. Lacks offensive consistency, in general.
The home run was the first of Rojas' career, but just his third hit over his last 10 games. The 25-year old's days could be numbered, especially now that the Dodgers have wrapped up their two-game road Interleague series in Detroit, if this solo-blast doesn't jump start stronger, more consistent production at the plate.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Rojas was filling in for the injured Justin Turner and was giving the recently activated Juan Uribe a day of rest. He's likely day-to-day for now, and when healthy should see irregular reps to give the aged Uribe a day off now and then. Analyst: Spencer Silva
That doesn't sound like very much fun. While a split fingernail is a minor injury, it can certainly affect the way a player grips a bat. Rojas wasn't in the lineup on Friday so this may keep him out of action for a few days.Analyst: David Kerr
