Dodgers Injury Update: Miguel Rojas dislocates finger in winter league

By on 12/11/2014 01:30:00 PM

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.

As reported by Ken Gurnick of, Rojas dislocated his left pinky during a game in the Venezuelan Winter League. Fortunately, the X-rays showed no signs of a fracture and Rojas is expected to miss only one week.

It's important that Rojas stays healthy, considering the fact that Hanley Ramirez is now with the Red Sox. Should the Dodgers fail to address the shortstop position this winter, Rojas will likely be part of a three-man middle infield rotation with Justin Turner and Erisbel Arrubarrena.

Rojas, a 25-year old from Venezuela, hit .181 with three doubles and nine RBI in 149 at bats with the Dodgers this past season. In nine Minor League seasons, Rojas has a batting average .238 with 17 home runs and 198 RBI.
