I’m no one, and I have my own, well-known set of biases, so I don’t expect to convince anyone in the BBWAA of anything even if I think I’m on the side of the angels. But Rosenthal is someone with a track record and who has the respect of awards voters. His column today supporting Felix Hernandez for the Cy Young basically nails it. It strikes me that any writer with a Cy Young vote who does not cast it for King Felix must first at least try to rebut Rosenthal’s argument.
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.
