The Miami Marlins have missed a key contributor to the starting lineup for nearly two weeks in shortstop Miguel Rojas. Rojas has been sidelined with a fractured and dislocated left index finger since May 27. His trip to the 10-day injured list hasn't hurt the Marlins a great deal as this team is just 2-8 in its last stretch of 10 games.

But, there appears to be some good news on the horizon. Rojas recently revealed quite the optimistic attitude about the timetable for his return.

The 32-year-old shortstop told Marlins reporters he thinks he'll be able to play shortly, "at some point, maybe starting next week." It's all about pain management as the eight-year MLB veteran attempts to make his return.

Rojas has been a bright spot for the Marlins lineup, slashing .275/.354/.433 with 3 home runs, 16 RBIs and 17 walks in 47 games this season. Still, this Marlins squad continues to struggle with their 26-34 overall record, 6.5 games back of the NL East division-leading New York Mets. Miami owns +3200 odds to win the division, according to the latest MLB odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
