Rockies placed C Wilin Rosario on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 23, with left wrist inflammation.
Rosario wasn't making swift enough progress from his sore left wrist, but it's not believed to be a major injury and he should be ready to return as soon as he is eligible. Rosario owns a disappointing .687 OPS with 10 home runs and 43 RBI in 91 games this year. He had an .801 OPS, 21 homers, and 79 RBI in 121 games last year. Aug 27 - 5:24 PM

Date:

Wilin Rosario (wrist) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Monday.

Rosario has now missed the last three games with a sore wrist. He had been slated to test things out in the batting cage on Monday, but it apparently didn't go well enough for the backstop to return to action. Michael McKenry is catching for the Rockies again on Monday.
Aug 25 - 7:09 PM

Wilin Rosario (wrist) will hit in the batting cages on Monday, and if all goes well will return to the Rockies starting lineup.

The slugging backstop has been bothered by the injury throughout the weekend, conceding playing time to Michael McKenry behind the dish. Fantasy owners should expect him back early in the week.

Wilin Rosario went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI as the Rockies topped the Diamondbacks 5-3 in 10 innings Sunday.

Rosario hit his first home run since July 9 in the sixth inning, and he added an RBI single in the 10th. He's enjoyed a hot start to the month of August, posting four multi-hit games in seven starts thus far. He's got his line up to .255/.294/.415 with 10 home runs on the year.
Aug 10 - 11:17 PM

Wilin Rosario went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

Rosario also walked twice, reaching base in five of his six plate appearances. The catcher has come on strong at the plate over his past nine games, going 12-for-34 with four multi-hit games in that span. The good stretch has raised his average from .238 to .252, a much more acceptable number for the talented backstop.

Wilin Rosario had a pair of hits and an RBI as the Rockies dropped the opener of a three-game series against the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.

Rosario's RBI single off Justin Verlander got the Rockies on the board in the seventh inning. The hard-hitting backstop has been a bit of a disappointment in fantasy leagues this season, slashing just .244/.279/.399 with nine long balls and 37 RBI.
Aug 1 - 10:14 PM

Wilin Rosario went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.

Rosario doubled and scored in the second inning, and he also scored in the fourth. It's been a largely down year for the 25-year-old, who is hitting .243/.281/.411 with nine home runs and 31 runs scored. He has doubled in two of the past three games, maybe a sign that he's ready to start hitting for more power in the coming days.

Rosario swatted a two-run double in the third inning before launching a solo shot off Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth. The four-hit game came on the heels of a three-hit game on Friday, as Rosario is 7-for-10 with a home run, two doubles, three RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base in his last two games. He's struggled for much of the season, but the weekend was a good reminder of what Rosario is capable of when he's on.
