Here’s something you don’t see every day. Or, like, any day.

Tyler Maun of MiLB.com reports that two players on the Class-A San Jose Giants hit for the cycle in the same game last night. The players: Gio Brusa and Jalen Miller. The Giants beat the Lancaster JetHawks 18-6 as the Brusa had four hits and Miller had five in all. Miller was the Giants’ third round pick in 2015. Brusa was a sixth round pick in 2016.

Maun could not find any examples of two cycles being hit by teammates in the same game. The closest he could find was when two players in the entire league hit for the cycle on the same day, once in 1920 and once in 2008.

Pretty neat.

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.
