Eddie Rosario went 1-for-4 and drove in a run in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday.
It's been a slow go for Rosario this spring. He's missed most of the team's games due to triceps tendinitis and hasn't hit very well when he has been able to play. He is slated to be the Twins' starting left fielder again this year. Mar 16 - 9:33 PM

Eddie Rosario returned to action as a DH on Thursday and went 0-for-3 against the Rays.

Rosario had been sidelined for a week by triceps tendinitis in his throwing arm. He'll likely DH a couple of more times before returning to the outfield next week.

Eddie Rosario (triceps) resumed throwing Wednesday in Twins camp.

Rosario made two sets of 20 throws from a distance of 60 feet and reported feeling strong. The 26-year-old outfielder is scheduled to return to Grapefruit League action at DH on Friday and should resume playing the field early next week. He's on track to be ready for Opening Day.

Eddie Rosario (triceps) is expected to resume throwing on Wednesday.

Rosario has been slowed by some mild triceps tendinitis, but he is scheduled to return to Grapefruit League action in the DH spot on Friday and he should resume playing the outfield early next week. The 26-year-old is expected to be ready for the start of the 2018 regular season and makes for a nice mid-round fantasy outfielder coming off a career-high 27 home runs.
Mar 13 - 4:57 PM

Eddie Rosario (triceps) hopes to serve as the designated hitter in games soon.

It was revealed last week that Rosario was dealing with mild triceps tendinitis. That he could DH soon is a good sign, but he still hasn't been cleared to resume throwing. As of now, it's not something that is expected to impact his readiness for the season, but the situation warrants monitoring in fantasy leagues.

Eddie Rosario (triceps) has yet to resume throwing.

It was reported Friday that Rosario was cleared to resume all baseball activities, but apparently he's still not throwing yet. We're not at the point yet that we should be overly worried about Rosario's availability for Opening Day, but it would obviously be nice to see him throwing and back in game action soon.
Mar 11 - 12:24 PM

Eddie Rosario (triceps) has been cleared for all baseball activities.

Rosario hasn't been allowed to throw for the last few days because of mild right triceps tendinitis, but he's feeling better. When he'll be ready to return to Grapefruit League action isn't known yet, but it shouldn't be long.
Mar 9 - 8:12 AM

Eddie Rosario is in "no-throw status" in Twins camp due to mild triceps tendinitis in his right arm.

Never a good sign, but it's better that this is happening in early March than mid-to-late March. Rosario can still get himself ready before the start of the 2018 regular season as long as the tendinitis does not linger too long. He is 3-for-13 with a home run and a stolen base so far in Grapefruit League play.
Mar 7 - 9:04 AM

Eddie Rosario homered as the Twins' cleanup hitter Friday against the Blue Jays.

Rosario looked like the favorite to bat fourth for the Twins a week ago, but the arrival of Logan Morrison changed that. He could still bat fifth, but that would likely mean back-to-back lefties, what with Morrison likely to bat cleanup. Rosario projected as a top-30 fantasy outfielder as a cleanup man, but his stock would dip if he's going to bat sixth.
Mar 2 - 3:45 PM

Eddie Rosario went 4-for-5 with a homer, two doubles and three RBI against the Indians on Tuesday.

Rosario makes some interesting choices on the basepaths and his defensive numbers have really fallen off a cliff, but he's been a very reliable bat in recent months. His 27 homers in 527 at-bats this year are four more than he had in 788 career at-bats coming into this year. He's also up to 78 RBI this year after totaling 82 in his first two seasons.

Eddie Rosario homered twice Sunday in the Twins' 13-7 win over the Blue Jays.

Rosario kicked off the Twins' seven-run second inning with a solo shot against Blue Jays starter Joe Biagini. He also singled in that frame and then belted another solo blast in a six-run fifth inning for Minnesota, finishing the day 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBI. Rosario is now batting .295/.333/.521 with 26 home runs, 72 RBI, and 73 runs scored in 139 games this season.

Eddie Rosario hit his 24th home run of the season in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Rosario got the Twins on the board with a solo dinger off Jays starter Marco Estrada in the fifth inning. It was his only hit in three at-bats. The 25-year-old had a modest eight-game hitting streak snapped on Friday, so Saturday can serve as the first day of his next one. Rosario is batting .292/.330/.508 with 24 homers, 70 RBI, 71 run scored and nine steals through 138 games overall.

Eddie Rosario hit a two-run homer off Phil Maton in the bottom of the 10th to give the Twins a 3-1 win over the Padres on Wednesday.

To go along with his 23rd homer, Rosario also collected his 30th double and his 31st walk tonight. All of those are career high. The one high he won't be exceeding this year is triples; he had a league-high 15 in 2015, but he's settled for two this year.

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-4 with a homer, four RBI, and a stolen base in Friday’s win over the Royals.

Rosario got the Twins on the board with a sacrifice fly in the first inning before slugging a three-run homer off Ian Kennedy in the fourth. He’s now up to 21 homers on the year after hitting 23 homers in 214 games through his first two seasons in the majors.

Eddie Rosario blasted two homers and drove in three runs during a thrashing of the White Sox on Wednesday.

He swatted a two-run dinger off starter Derek Holland and followed that up with a solo shot off reliever Mike Pelfrey. He's now doubled his home run output from a year ago. He has a .292 batting average with 20 home runs, 58 RBI and 64 runs scored in 468 plate appearances. The 25-year-old has developed into a quality fantasy outfielder and has the potential for more.
