Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies and Rangers "continue to have discussions" about Wilin Rosario.
The Rockies have essentially given up on Rosario catching and want to deal him, and the Rangers make a lot of sense as a trade partner. Texas has a need for right-handed power and could use Rosario as a corner outfielder, designated hitter or catcher (or all three). Rosario is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.

Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich indicated Monday that Wilin Rosario is drawing more trade interest from American League clubs.

It make sense, as Rosario is a poor defensive catcher and could be better off as a designated hitter and part-time first baseman. Thomas Harding of speculates that the Rangers could be a fit. Rosario batted .267/.305/.435 with 13 home runs and 54 RBI over 106 games this past season and is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rockies are trying to trade Wilin Rosario.

It appears that they've finally decided Rosario is no longer a real option at catcher. Rosenthal says the club considered sending Rosario to Triple-A last season to try him out as a right fielder, but they could instead just decided to deal him, possibly to the American League. Rosario has hit 62 homers over the last three seasons and is just now reaching arbitration eligibility, so there should be some interest.
Dec 2 - 9:01 PM

Wilin Rosario clubbed his 13th home run as the Rockies fell to the Dodgers on Sunday in Los Angeles.

The hard-hitting backstop was a tremendous disappointment at the plate this season, hitting .267/.305/.435 with 13 homers and 54 RBI in his 106 games. As far as his prospects moving forward, it's encouraging to note that he hit three of his home runs and drove home 11 runs in his final 11 games.

Wilin Rosario went 2-for-3 with a double and three runs scored as the Rockies completed a four-game sweep of the Diamondbacks with Sunday's 8-3 win.

Rosario was the man on the spot for the Rockies, scoring runs in the third, fifth and seventh innings. Rosario is red hot in recent games, hitting .700 (14-for-20) with two home runs, nine RBI and eight runs scored in the past five games. The unconscious stretch has his overall line up to .273/.310/.440 as he attempts to salvage a largely pedestrian season.

Wilin Rosario sent the Rockies home happy, clubbing a walk-off two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

The Rockies had chipped away at the Diamondbacks' five-run lead, scoring twice in the sixth and twice in the eighth to make it 6-5. With two outs and a man on, Rosario took advantage of an Addison Reed offering, sending a 387-foot blast to left-center. The catcher, who finished 4-for-5 on the evening, now has 12 homers on the season with 51 RBI and a .265/.301/.432 slash line.

Wilin Rosario went 3-for-4 and homered against the Dodgers on Monday.

It's worth wondering what's in store for Rosario after his disappointing offensive season; despite all of his success in 2012 and 2013, the Rockies tried to sign Brian McCann last winter with the idea of moving Rosario out from behind the plate. There won't really be anywhere to move Rosario this winter, so he'll either remain a catcher or possibly get traded. It'd be a case of selling low for the Rockies, though.
Sep 16 - 12:30 AM

Rockies activated C Wilin Rosario from the 15-day disabled list.

Rosario missed the last two weeks of action with left wrist inflammation. Michael McKenry played well while Rosario was out, but Rosario should return to playing pretty much every day.
Sep 7 - 1:28 PM

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

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.
Aug 6 - 1:08 AM

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.
