Jose Reyes won’t be ready to return from DL when eligible

1 Comment

Jose Reyes is eligible to come off the disabled list on August 23, but yesterday manager Terry Collins indicated that the shortstop returning from his injured hamstring then is highly unlikely.

Reyes was initially given a 2-3 week recovery timetable and has yet to begin baseball activities, so it’s hard to imagine him making it back in just 15 days.

Ruben Tejada has made all seven starts at shortstop in Reyes’ absence, with Angel Pagan filling the leadoff spot.

And of course the longer he’s gone the more speculation there will be about how much free agent money Reyes is losing because of injuries.

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.
