The Cubs are playing the Cardinals this afternoon. Randy Wells got the start. It went like this:
- RBI single for Albert Pujols;
- Single for Matt Holliday;
- RBI single for Colby Rasmus;
- RBI double for Yadier Molina;
5-0 lead for the Cardinals before an out was ever recorded, and Wells is out of the game. Assuming Carlos Zambrano’s digestive system can be restored to order, you have to figure that it will be Wells’ turn he takes when he returns to the rotation.
LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.
The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.
The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.
Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
