Wilin Rosario hit a two-run homer in the Rockies' loss to the Padres on Monday.
The one-out fifth inning shot off Eric Stults was Rosario's only hit in four at-bats. Rosario missed a game over the weekend with a sore wrist, but he's suffering no ill effects with homers in each of his past two games. The Baby Bull hasn't done much this season outside of that pair of round-trippers, however, slashing .214/.277/.405 over 42 at-bats. Apr 15 - 1:51 AM

Date:

Wilin Rosario hit his first home run of the season Sunday, but the Rockies lost to the Giants.

Rosario hit 21 homers last season and is one of the more powerful catchers in the game, so it's surprising that it took 13 games to hit his first homer of 2014. It was only his third RBI and the 25-year-old is batting just .211, both numbers that should fix themselves quickly. He's not in the lineup for his defense, after all.
Apr 13 - 7:21 PM

Wilin Rosario (wrist) has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Saturday.

Rosario was a late scratch on Friday due to a left wrist strain that he sustained sliding during Tuesday's contest. The Baby Bull is hitting .233/.314/.300 with no homers and two RBI in his first eight games.
Apr 12 - 1:00 PM

Wilin Rosario was scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Friday due to a left wrist strain.

He sustained the injury sliding on Tuesday. It doesn't appear to be anything serious, so expect to see him back in the lineup before the end of the weekend. Jordan Pacheco will handle the catching duties in his absence.

Wilin Rosario has been scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Friday.

No word yet on the reasoning behind the late scratch, or whether or not Rosario is dealing with a minor injury. Jordan Pacheco is starting behind the dish and will hit seventh for the Rockies.
Apr 11 - 7:37 PM

Wilin Rosario had a nice day at the plate in Sunday’s loss to the Diamondbacks, going 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and a run scored.

The hard-hitting backstop has yet to leave the yard this season and has only driven home one run, but is hitting a respectable .294/.381/.412. He also drew a walk on Sunday, which is something that he did just 15 times during the 2013 season.
Apr 6 - 6:41 PM

Wilin Rosario (calf) will not play until Friday.

Rosario has a large purple bruise on his right calf, but it's not a major concern. He should be good to go for Opening Day.
Mar 26 - 12:21 PM

Wilin Rosario didn't play Tuesday due to swelling in his left calf.

Rosario dealt with a left calf issue late last season, as well, but the Rockies aren't concerned. The catcher could be back in the lineup on Wednesday or Friday.
Mar 25 - 7:31 PM

Wilin Rosario hit his second spring home run against the Mariners on Saturday.

It was Rosario's only hit in three at-bats, but the catcher is still hitting .323 on the spring. The two-run shot gave him seven RBI in Cactus League play. He enters the season as the Rockies' unquestioned starter behind the plate.
Mar 22 - 8:03 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said that Wilin Rosario will get "plenty of work" at first base this spring.

The Rockies want to keep Rosario's bat in the lineup as much as possible, so they'll give him some time at first base this season on days when he needs a break from catching. The 25-year-old has started four games at the position in his career.

Wilin Rosario could miss the final two games of the 2013 season as he continues to deal with a sore calf.

Rosario had planned on returning to the lineup on Friday, but tried to run before the game and felt lingering soreness in his calf. The Rockies won't push him and risk further injury, so consider it unlikely that he'll return this weekend.

Wilin Rosario (calf) remains out of the Rockies starting lineup on Friday.

The 24-year-old backstop was expecting to return on Friday, but apparently isn't quite ready yet. Jordan Pacheco will get the start behind the dish and hit eighth against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.
Fri, Sep 27, 2013 07:06:00 PM

Troy Renck of the Denver Post expects Wilin Rosario (calf) to return to the lineup Friday.

Rosario hasn't played since aggravating his calf injury on Tuesday. The 24-year-old is sporting a nice .292/.315/.486 batting line with 21 homers and 79 RBI this season.

Wilin Rosario (calf) won't return until this weekend.

Rosario's left calf is feeling better, but he's not quite ready for live action. Jordan Pacheco is behind the plate for the Rockies on Tuesday night.

Wilin Rosario (calf) hopes to return to the Rockies lineup before the end of the season, but has not yet been cleared to do so.

He's making slow progress since being forced from Tuesday's game after aggravating his calf injury. The 24-year-old backstop has been arguably the top fantasy performer at the catcher position this season, hitting .292/.315/.486 with 21 homers, 79 RBI and four stolen bases. Jordan Pacheco is getting the start behind the plate in his place on Friday.
