Marlins notes: Dee Gordon gets day off; Giancarlo Stanton might face live BP soon

MIAMI -- The Miami Marlins gave All-Star second baseman Dee Gordon a rare night off Wednesday. Gordon, who has played in 110 of 126 games, leads the majors with 156 hits and a .333 average. Miami is on Day 13 of 20 in a row. Miguel Rojas started in his place batting second. Cole Gillespie, inserted into right field, got the leadoff nod. "We had talked about this three days before...

Loving That Dee Gordon Trade More Every Day

The day the Dodgers traded Dee Gordon, Dan Haren and Miguel Rojas (along with more than $12 million to cover 2015 salaries) to Miami for reliever Chris Hatcher, catcher Austin Barnes, utility guy Enrique Hernandez, and starter Andrew Heaney (who quickly became second baseman Howie Kendrick), I was thrilled. No, really: Think about what the Dodgers just did, really. In exchange...

Dodgers Injury Update: Miguel Rojas dislocates finger in winter league

The Los Angeles Dodgers head into the winter coming off a 94-win season and a loss in the NLDS to the St. Louis Cardinals. At sixth in the Major Leagues in both runs scored and ERA, the Dodgers appear well equipped heading into next season, barring injuries. On the injury front, shortstop Miguel Rojas dislocated his finger in a winter league game. View image | gettyimages.com...

Who plays shortstop for the Dodgers in 2015?

Now that Hanley Ramirez has signed to play left field (oy) in Boston, the Dodgers have a massive, gaping hole at shortstop (and in the lineup). One could argue that the hole at short is greater than the one behind the plate. There are a couple internal options to fill the void for 2015 – Erisbel Arruebarrena and Miguel Rojas. But let’s be real. Arruebarrena is coming of a less...

While that trio isn’t available tonight, I’ve added them to the depth chart anyway. That many blue names in the left column is silly. Baseball is about to get ridiculous. (It will not, however...

Mets 11, Dodgers 3: Future Dodger Bartolo Colon Beats Future Ex-Dodger Kevin Correia

Miguel Rojas ended up playing left field in this game, in case you were wondering if you missed anything. Today is Kevin Correia‘s 34th birthday, so I feel bad bagging on him, I guess, but then, I think we knew when the Dodgers acquired him that he was joining the rotation more out of injury-fueled desperation than out of any actual qualifications on his part. He may have unfairly...

Braves 3, Dodgers 2: Forget the Loss, Worry About Ryu

You can’t say the Dodgers didn’t have their chances here, you know. They put 15 men on base and brought in only two, both on run-scoring second inning singles off the bats of Carl Crawford and Miguel Rojas — two of five hits they got that inning after Ervin Santana struck out the side in the first. They even managed to get the bases loaded in the ninth inning against the basically...

Tigers 4, Dodgers 1: Max Scherzer Is Still Really Good

Gross. That wasn’t as painful as last night, but it still wasn’t very much fun. Max Scherzer allowed a mere four hits — one, shockingly, being Miguel Rojas‘ first major league homer — and along with two walks, and Joba Chamberlain & Joe Nathan allowed zero hits and zero walks, and that was that. It’s not like the Dodgers never had chances, though. Yasiel Puig tripled...

As far as “pitchers helping themselves” go, I’m not sure you’re going to do much better than Clayton Kershaw hitting a homer to break a 0-0 tie while pitching a shutout on Opening Day last year.

Cardinals @ Dodgers June 29, 2014: Justin Turner’s Terribly-Timed Injury

Another day, another injury. This time, as very much expected when we saw him limp into second base last night, it’s Justin Turner. That’s obviously 15 days a minimum, but with the way he reacted to that hamstring, don’t be surprised if it’s longer than that. If he’s back before August, I’ll be pleasantly surprised; it is one of several reasons why the Dodgers really...
