Finds opportunity in Japan

Rojas agreed Tuesday on a two-year, $5 million contract with the Hanshin Tigers of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
ANALYSIS
Rojas drew interest from both foreign teams and MLB organizations this winter after he hit .349 with 47 home runs and 135 RBI for the Korea Baseball Organization's KT Wiz to claim league MVP honors in 2020. The offer he received from Hanshin presumably trumped what other MLB teams were willing to extend him, so the outfielder looks set to remain overseas through at least his age-32 season.
