Dodgers News: Miguel Rojas Provides Update On Cramp That Forced Him Out Of Wednesday’s Game
Dodgers starting shortstop Miguel Rojas left Wednesday’s 10-5 win over the Giants early with what appeared to be a cramp. Rojas was running out an infield single, but came up gimpy as he got to first base. He was forced to exit the game, invoking some fear in Dodger fans.
Fortunately, it didn’t take too long for the Dodgers to announce on Twitter that Rojas was, in fact, dealing with a hamstring cramp, which didn’t get better in time for him to stay in the game. Then, after the game, Rojas told Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic that he was fine, and that his leg cramped up because it was wrapped too tight for protection from the groin injury he was dealing with last week. He also said he could have stayed in the game if he had more time to take the wrap off.
This is great news for the Dodgers, as Rojas is one of only two shortstops on the roster. When Rojas missed time last week due to his groin injury, Chris Taylor stepped in, and struggled mightily at the plate.
If Rojas were to miss time, Taylor would be the only other shortstop on the roster — and if his struggles continue, the Dodgers would really be in a tough spot.
But fortunately, this was just a cramp, and Rojas should be good to go for Friday’s game against the Chicago Cubs.
