The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired infielder Miguel Rojas from the Miami Marlins on Wednesday in exchange for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya.

Rojas, 33, returns to the team for whom he made his Major League debut in June 2014.

Rojas batted .236 with six homers and 36 RBIs in 140 games with the Marlins this past season, his eighth with the Marlins. Rojas is a career .260/.314/.358 hitter with 39 homers and 269 RBIs for the Dodgers and Marlins.

Rojas can play all over the infield but has 719 appearances at shortstop.

Amaya, 24, listed as the No. 15 prospect in the Dodgers system by MLB Pipeline, combined for 17 home runs and 71 RBIs in 133 games played between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City in 2022.
