Dodgers News: Miguel Rojas Provides Update on Injury

We’re on game 5 without Miguel Rojas in the starting lineup for the Dodgers. He last played on Sunday when he felt a tweak in his groin while trying to force a double play on Arizona speedster Corbin Carroll. Rojas spoke with reporters ahead of Saturday’s game telling them that he expects to be back in the lineup as soon as Sunday.

He’s actually been ready in his eyes, but he said he said the team is trying to exercise maximum caution with the 34-year-old.

“We’re trying to be smart — and it’s not just me, it’s the organization as well. [Dave Roberts] and the front office is trying to keep me on the field… we’re thinking about the long run. … I’m feeling better. And I feel like I can play through this, but at the end of the day it’s not my decision to be out there today or yesterday or today. We’ll take it day by day.”

As Rojas also explained, the main goal is to not have the shortstop return for two games then reaggravate the injury and miss a month. In his place, Chris Taylor has filled in fine. Dave Roberts did confirm that Rojas will be in the lineup on Sunday and likely off again on Monday in San Francisco. He also confirmed that Miggy will remain the starting shortstop when he’s ready, but for now the extended look at the position for CT3 is probably good for the long run.
