Rojas who suddenly became the Dodgers’ starting shortstop gave up playing at WBC
Miguel Rojas (34, LA Dodgers), who suddenly became the main player in the backup, withdrew his participation in the World Baseball Classic (WBC).
Major League Baseball’s official website MLB.com reported on the 3rd (Korea Standard Time), “Rohas was originally scheduled to leave for Florida (to play in WBC), but changed his plan due to the injury of (Gavin) Lux.”
Until just a while ago, Rojas’ position in the Dodgers was a backup.
The Dodgers selected Lux as the starting shortstop when Trey Turner, who played as the team’s main shortstop last season, left for the Philadelphia Phillies. And Rojas was brought in from the Miami Marlins to prop up Lux.
However, Lux was out for the season due to a major injury during the exhibition game, and the Dodgers inevitably had to use Rojas as the starting shortstop.
Rojas decided to give up his dream of playing in the WBC after discussing with Dodgers manager Dave Roberts and team leaders 사설토토사이트
Rojas said, “It wasn’t an easy decision for me. “It’s very heartbreaking that I can’t play in the WBC as a representative of Venezuela,” he said adding, “It’s inevitable because I have to play every day as the team’s main player this season.”
“I’ve been preparing to play shortstop every day for the past nine years. That will not change in the future. “I’m always preparing to play 162 games, and I’m ready to play no matter what happens,” he said, vowing to fill the shortstop gap well.
