The Mets will place starter Steven Matz on the 15-day disabled list with a tight left shoulder, James Wagner of The New York Times reports. The club hasn’t made an official announcement, but the move can be made retroactive to August 15.
Matz had been scratched from Friday’s scheduled start against the Giants. The 25-year-old has had a great season for the Mets, compiling a 3.40 ERA with a 129/31 K/BB ratio over 132 1/3 innings.
Seth Lugo started in Matz’s place on Friday and will likely continue to start as long as Matz is sidelined.
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.
