Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris will undergo a procedure to relieve pressure in his left groin, MLB.com’s Jason Beck reports. Beck adds that Norris is expected to miss 8-12 weeks recovering from the procedure.

Norris, 25, struggled in two starts and three relief appearances this season, yielding 10 runs on 16 hits and nine walks with 18 strikeouts in 15 1/3 innings.

Norris appeared to sustain the injury on Sunday’s start against the Orioles. The lefty dealt with a groin issue last season as well.

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.
