4. Miguel Rojas

It's been a couple months since Dave Roberts announced that Mookie Betts will see regular playing time at second base in 2024, but the clock has been ticking for Miguel Rojas since that day.

The 34-year-old has been an absolute liability from the plate over the last two seasons. He's never been known for his offense, but it's become especially egregious as of late.

Rojas proved his 2022 slash line of .236/.283/.323 was no fluke when he followed it with a nearly identical .236/.290/.322 in 2023.

He's still a plus defender, but he's seen his game deteriorate in that area lately as well, and when you're such a huge negative from the dish you need to be that much better in the field. And heading into his age-35 season, we can expect him to have lost a step defensively too.

There's no denying how good the top-end of this Dodgers roster is. But a player like Rojas still holding a spot on the 40-man roster highlights a real depth issue that must be addressed.
