Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, recovering from left ankle surgery in September, says he feels “too good” just six weeks away from spring training, per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Choo has been cleared for all baseball activities.
Choo, 32, struggled through an injury-plagued 2014 season, his first with the Rangers after signing a seven-year, $130 million contract. He compiled a .242/.340/.374 batting line with 13 home runs and 40 RBI. With a return to good health, the Rangers are hoping for a bounce-back year from Choo.
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.
