Mariners' Josh Rojas: Could see more time at third
Rojas, who's projected to fill the strong side of an infield platoon with Dylan Moore, is now likelier to do so at third base rather than second as a result of the Jorge Polanco trade, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Kramer notes that Polanco should play either second base or shortstop based on his big-league resume. As a result, Rojas -- who contributed a solid .272 batting average and .721 OPS across 134 plate appearances after his trade from the Diamondbacks last season -- could see the majority of his time at the hot corner. Offseason arrival Luis Urias is also a candidate to see time at third base. Rojas could end up in a super-utility role instead, as he's played every position except catcher, first base and center field during his five-year MLB career.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Josh Rojas: Receives $3.1 million from Mariners
The Mariners and Rojas avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.1 million contract Thursday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Rojas was in his second year of arbitration eligibility. The 29-year-old infielder posted a .589 OPS with the Diamondbacks in 2023 before putting up a .721 OPS following a trade to the Mariners. Rojas looks to be at the top of Seattle's second-base depth chart, although he'll have to hold off others.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Josh Rojas: Clubs homer in win
Rojas went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two total runs scored in Friday's 8-0 win over the Rangers.
Rojas had gone 26 games without a homer, hitting a paltry .236 in that span, but he swatted a solo shot in the third inning and added an RBI single in the fourth in Friday's contest. The second baseman is batting .280 with Seattle, an improvement on the .228/.292/.296 slash line over 59 games he managed with Arizona this season prior to be dealt to the M's. All four of his homers have come with his new squad, and he's added 40 RBI, 47 runs scored, 12 stolen bases and 17 doubles between both clubs this year.... See More ... See Less

Rojas went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run in a loss to the Reds on Tuesday.
Rojas authored one of four two-hit efforts for the Mariners, posting his out of the bottom of the order. The trade deadline acquisition had been mired in a 2-for-15 funk in the seven games since his previous multi-hit tally, but a productive second half of August has helped Rojas maintain an impressive .282/.333/.436 slash line in 25 games with the Mariners thus far....
