HBT Extra: Previewing the NL East

5 Comments

This is a bit of a time warp. We actually taped this NL East preview a few weeks ago, before all the other HBT Extra previews we did. It got lost in the video shuffle somewhere, however (i.e. I’m really disorganized sometimes, guys).  But here it is, better late than never.

Except for any of the parts that are now outdated or wrong. Then it’s worse late.  But I pick the Phillies to win the division, so you Philly deadenders will like it anyway. At least until you forget that I picked the Phillies sometime this spring and accuse me of being a hater.

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.
