NEW YORK (AP) — The Miami Marlins placed shortstop Miguel Rojas on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring before Wednesday’s series finale against the New York Mets.
Rojas was injured in the third inning Tuesday night, stumbling over first base while trying to avoid a double play. He remained on the ground for a while and needed help walking off the field.
The 30-year-old is in the midst of a productive season, hitting .289 in 108 games and playing a key role defensively for a young Miami team. Rojas will undergo tests Thursday to determine the severity of the injury.
“He’s going to be missed,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “He’s a guy that you depend on to kind of run things out there, always looking to make a play and always looking to win a game somehow.”
Infielder Deven Marrero was selected from Triple-A New Orleans to take Rojas’ roster spot. He has played parts of four seasons with Boston and Arizona, hitting .197 in 158 career games.
