Marlins Reportedly to Trade Shortstop Miguel Rojas to the Dodgers

Rojas, 34 next month, has been a high-contact, solid-defense shortstop for the Marlins for a long time, and although he may not be an everyday starter for the Dodgers, his righty bat might pair nicely in a time-share with Lux’s lefty bat (and Lux can man other positions when he’s not at short). This is a floor-raising move for a team that already had an incredibly strong floor.

It’s a good move for the Dodgers (and their pitchers), and they’ll part with shortstop prospect Jacob Amaya, who is ranked 15th in a very good Dodgers system:

Miguel Cabrera confirms plans to retire after 2023 season, but wants to stay in baseball

Miguel Cabrera, who joined the 3,000 hit club during the 2022 season, confirmed on Monday that his playing career will likely conclude sometime next year. “It feels a little weird to say that,” he told MLB.com’s Christina De Nicola. “I thought I’m not going to say never, but I think it’s time to say goodbye to baseball.”

Cabrera, 39, added that he would like to remain a member of the Detroit Tigers organization, with whom he’d like to assist younger players.

Cabrera’s announcement should come as no surprise. If anything, it was a predictable outcome given that the guaranteed portion of his contract runs through next season. (He’ll make $32 million in 2023 before being owed an $8 million buyout on a pair of club options.) Cabrera’s contract has kept him on the roster despite a cratered level of production. Indeed, he hasn’t posted an OPS+ of 100 or better since 2020, and he hasn’t topped the 110-mark since 2018.
