On Wednesday, the Dodgers swung a deal with the Miami Marlins for infielder Miguel Rojas. The 33-year-old is expected to play a big role in the infield, however, MLB Network’s Craig Mish reported that Rojas might have to undergo a procedure to clean up an issue ahead of next season.
Rojas per sources had a minor issue pop up recently after undergoing wrist surgery back in October. He’ll need a procedure on it from what I understand, but it didn’t hold up the deal with the Dodgers. The trade is complete.

Mish called it a “minor issue” that popped up after he underwent wrist surgery in October. The Dodgers knew about the issue, and knew that he would probably need to have a procedure to get it cleaned up. However, it didn’t prevent them from making the deal, which they have already announced as finalized.
Assuming he’s good to go by Opening Day, Rojas should make a good case to be in the lineup. Where he plays on the diamond will be answered in the coming months, but there’s a good chance we see him all over the field, spending time at second base, shortstop and third base. Last year, he was a Gold Glove finalist at the shortstop position.
We’ll continue to update you on this potential procedure for Rojas, but it sounds like it wasn’t a big enough issue to stop the Dodgers from making the deal happen.
