The Marlins announced after Monday’s 6-5 win over the Phillies that third baseman Martin Prado has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained right knee. Miguel Rojas was reinstated from the disabled list.

Prado, 33, has been mentioned in various trade rumors recently. The Red Sox, for example, were recently reported as having interest in a package deal with the Marlins in which they would acquire Prado as well as reliever David Phelps. Prado’s injury might mean the Marlins will have to try to move him through waivers in August instead. He hits the DL batting .254/.283/.362 in 145 plate appearances.

Rojas, 28, had been out since May with a fractured right thumb. He resumes with a .789 OPS across 73 plate appearances in the majors.

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.
