Marlins trade SS Miguel Rojas to Dodgers for prospect

MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins have traded shortstop Miguel Rojas back to his original team, the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Marlins are getting infield prospect Jacob Amaya. The Dodgers needed a shortstop after seeing Trea Turner leave in free agency and sign an 11-year, $300 million contract with the NL champion Philadelphia Phillies. The 33-year-old Rojas has a $5 million salary in the final season of a $10 million, two-year contract, then can become a free agent. He was the longest-tenured member of the Marlins, having been with the club since 2015.
