• Exits after HBP to hand
    Rojas was removed from Friday's game in San Francisco after taking a pitch off his left hand, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rojas finished the night 0-for-2 with the HBP and is likely headed for scans on his hand. Amed Rosario took over at shortstop for Los Angeles in the bottom of the seventh. Rotowire.com Today, 2:05 pm
