Rojas' importance to the Dodgers has increased with Hanley Ramirez's free-agent departure to the Red Sox, especially if the Dodgers do not acquire another shortstop and fill the position internally with a combination of Rojas, Erisbel Arruebarrena and Justin Turner.
Rojas became Ramirez's frequent defensive replacement as a rookie this past season after spending eight seasons in the Minor Leagues without playing above Double-A. In 2014, Rojas played in 85 games with the Dodgers after a June 6 callup, batting .181.
