The Marlins and Miguel Rojas have reached an agreement for an extension that would keep the veteran with the club until 2023, a source told MLB.com.
The infielder, whose $ 5.5 million 2022 option was activated when he hit 500 shifts in 2021, would earn a total of $ 10 million in the new deal, according to MLB Network correspondent Jon Heyman.
Rojas, who will turn 33 on February 24, is the Peces member with the longest stay in the team and is considered the captain of the team. In seven seasons with Miami, he has a .271 / .325 / .375 offensive line with 32 homers and 37 ripped off in 730 games.
Another candidate for an extension on the Marlins is ace Sandy Alcantara. The right-hander, who became the first Fish to record 200 innings and 200 strikeouts in a season since AJ Burnett (2002), is eligible for salary arbitration for the first time in his career.(MLB IN SPANISH)
