Rojas began his professional career in his native country, playing for Club de Deportes La Serena from 1990 to 1993. After his stint at La Serena, he signed with Unión Española. The following year Rojas made his debut for the Chilean national team, participating in a game between Chile and Argentina. After his time at Unión, Rojas was transferred to Universidad de Chile during the 1997 season.
Ricardo's continued success at both club and national team levels brought attention to him from foreign teams. At the end of the 2000 season he was signed by the Mexican club Club América. Excluding a six-month loan in 2004 to Universidad Católica de Chile, Rojas has been a staple of the Club América defense for seven years. During his stay in Mexico, Rojas won two championships with his club, in the Verano 2002 season and most recently after the Clausura 2005 tournament. Rojas played more than 200 games with Club América during his time there.
He currently is playing for Necaxa of the Primera División of Mexico. Rojas has recently been loaned back to Club América to dispute the team's pre-season games in the United States.
