The Los Angeles Dodgers also seem to be moving to reinforce their strength.
MLB.com reported on the 12th (Korean time), “According to sources, the Dodgers are making moves to strengthen their shortstop position by recruiting infielder Miguel Rojas.”
Rojas played for the Miami Marlins from 2015 to last year. His big league debut was in 2014 with the Dodgers.
If the Dodgers acquire Rojas, Rojas will return to his former team. Rojas hit .26, 39 homers, 269 RBIs and an on-base percentage of .314 OPS in 955 games since his big league debut and trade to Miami.
Last season, he batted .283 OPS .606 with 6 home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games. In Miami, first base, second base, third base, and shortstop all saw infield utility. 메이저놀이터
MLB.com looked at, “Lojas has been in charge of the Miami center line since 2019, mainly playing as a shortstop.”
The Dodgers need reinforcements in the infield. This is especially true of the shortstop position. Dodgers shortstop Trey Turner left for the Philadelphia Phillies. In 160 games last season, no player recorded a batting average of .298, 21 home runs, and 100 RBIs.
Rojas has a poor batting record, but is evaluated as a player with good defense. The Dodgers have Gavin Lux in the infield, but they are paying attention to the possibility of signing Rojas, who has good defense.
