Tonight’s Dodgers-Giants game is postponed

It was already a weird enough Friday schedule in that only nine games, as opposed to a full slate of 15 games, was originally scheduled. You’ll have that with built-in offdays for many clubs due to yesterday’s home openers. MLB likes to build in an offday the day following those in case of a rainout. The upshot: the lightest Friday schedule in a dog’s age.

Now make it only eight games, because one has been cancelled: the Dodgers vs. the Giants in San Francisco. Where, no, a post-home opener offday was not originally scheduled because you tend not to get a lot of rainouts in California. Indeed, this is the first postponement in San Francisco since 2006. Welp, stuff happens.

They’re likewise moving tomorrow’s game to 3PM Pacific time. It had been scheduled for 1PM. Guess they want some extra time for things to blow over. No word on the makeup, but it’ll likely be a doubleheader sometime soon. The Giants and Dodgers play each other A LOT in the early going this year.

UPDATE: The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on April 28.

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.
