As reported by Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, 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.
