RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

In his third season in the majors, Rojas appeared in 100 games for the first time in his career in 2016. Rojas was mainly used as a late-game defensive substitute last year, appearing in 123 games but only starting 44 of those and only registering 214 plate appearances. However, his versatility makes him a valuable utility man for the Marlins, something manager Don Mattingly has embraced, playing Rojas in more than 15 games at first base, second base, third base, and shortstop last season. In 2016, Rojas slashed .247/.288/.325, outperforming his main competition at shortstop, Adeiny Hechavarria, who only produced a .236/.283/.311 line himself. He has started 26 games at shortstop in each of his last two seasons in Miami, and with trade rumors swirling around Hechavarria, there have been talks about Rojas assuming a larger role in the Marlins' 2017 infield, but he's unlikely to be more than a glove-first utility player.

2016

Rojas began the year with Triple-A New Orleans, but spent significant time in the big leagues due to various injuries around the Marlins' infield. After a dismal start, Rojas hit a huge hot streak at the end of the year to bring his batting average up to a respectable .282. He's still considered a glove-first infielder and his power numbers aren't there, but the 26-year-old does possess the ability to play all over the infield and even appeared once in left field. A strong spring at the plate could warrant a spot on the Marlins' 25-man roster as a utility player for Rojas, though his starting opportunities could be limited when the infield is healthy.

2015

Rojas appeared in 85 games for the Dodgers in 2014, collecting most of those innings as a defensive replacement at shortstop when Hanley Ramirez was limited by various ailments. He held his own at hitter-friendly Albuquerque, putting a .302/.353/.434 line together over 173 plate appearances. Keep in mind, however, that the .434 Triple-A slugging percentage was Rojas' best mark since his 2009 stop in the Midwest League at Low-A Dayton (.339 SLG). When he's on a big league roster, Rojas will be used off the bench as a defensive replacement. He'll compete for a utility role with the Marlins after he was traded from the Dodgers in the offseason. Don't be surprised if he begins the year back at Triple-A while serving as organizational depth.
