MILWAUKEE (AP) — Miami Marlins shortstop Miguel Rojas left Sunday’s game against Milwaukee after straining his left shoulder strain while diving for a ground ball in the second inning.

Rojas was moving toward second when Jesus Aguilar’s grounder got past him for a single. Rojas dived, rose to his knees and held his left wrist. He was replaced by Mike Aviles.

Rojas is batting .270 with 18 RBIs in 78 games.
