Miguel Rojas Addresses Viral Clip of Him Arguing With Marlins Bench in Dodgers’ Win

The Los Angeles Dodgers just completed a three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers outscored the Marlins 17-6 in an overall dominant performance, one that was especially fulfilling for Dodgers infielder Miguel Rojas.

Rojas spent eight years of his career with the Marlins, and became their de facto team captain as his career went on. However, one young player on the Marlins, Jazz Chisholm Jr., seemed to have some issues with how Rojas was running things.

In March, Chisholm went on The Pivot Podcast and had a lot of choice words for the former Marlins’ team captain, which you can read about here.

Rojas responded on The Chris Rose Rotation, and didn’t take kindly to the words that were said about him. You can read more about that here.

That story ended up blowing over, and it didn’t appear to be an issue when the Marlins and Dodgers met at Dodger Stadium this weekend.

However, in Tuesday night’s blowout 8-2 win, Rojas entered the game for Mookie Betts, and hit a single in the bottom of the sixth inning. When he arrived at first base, he got into a verbal altercation with someone in the Marlins’ dugout. Take a look for yourself:

While Rojas seemed angry in the moment, he later went on Instagram to clarify the situation. He responded to two different posts on his Instagram story.

“Nah not talking trash, I’m giving my boy Bryan De La Cruz a little bit of love,” Rojas said in the first one.

“Nah I wasn’t chirping I was telling my boy Bryan De La Cruz that he’s ugly,” Rojas said in the second one.

This clearly wasn’t as big of a deal as it initially appeared to be, and Rojas ended up getting the final out of the series on a ground ball to second base to complete the sweep.
