JUST IN: Philadelphia Phillies manager wants Rojas to win. . .

After a strong rookie season but a disappointing showing in the playoffs, the Philadelphia Phillies’ young star must earn a spot in the middle heading into 2024.
By now, we all know the story about the Philadelphia Phillies’ outfield situation last year.
Their defense is terrible, with Bryce Harper unable to play right field, and they were rumored to be looking for reinforcements at the trade deadline before bringing in rookie Johan Rojas.
The 23-year-old was a revelation for the Phillies defense as he made an immediate impact and turned the outfield into a more solid unit.
However, Rojas contributed little at the plate in the playoffs, hitting .
163 with 15 strikeouts in 43 at-bats.
Because of this, President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski said after the year’s end that the star defender would have to earn a spot in the lineup next season and would not be eligible for the job.
Manager Rob Thomson hopes the second-year player can make that happen and start with the major league team in 2024.
Perhaps the bad reviews for his offense were exaggerated based on his playoff numbers.
He batted .
430 with two home runs, 13 extra-base hits, and 23 RBIs in 149 at-bats during the regular season, but Philadelphia now wants to win a World Series title and all needs it.
Players provide value as the calendar turns to fall.
Thomson definitely wants Rojas to win the job.
It’s up to young people to go out and earn money.
