Eddie Rosario will not play winter ball in Puerto Rico.

This will the first time in Rosario's professional career that he has skipped winter ball. The 23-year-old is currently playing in the Arizona Fall League, so the Twins simply want him to get some rest before gearing up for spring training. The 23-year-old missed the first 50 games of the 2014 season while serving a suspension for a drug of recreational use and ended up batting .237/.277/.396 with eight home runs and 36 RBI over 79 games with Double-A New Britain.
Nov 6 - 4:31 PM

Twins prospect Eddie Rosario continued his hot hitting in Arizona Fall League play on Friday, going 3-for-6 with a run scored as Salt River and Peoria played to a 3-3 tie.

Rosario also swiped a pair of bases in the ballgame, giving him six steals in seven games in Arizona. He's hitting a blistering .455 (15-for-33) in the early going with five RBI and four runs scored. The 23-year-old outfielder is expected to return to Double-A New Britain to begin the 2015 campaign.

Twins prospect Eddie Rosario went 2-for-4 with a double for Double-A New Britain on Wednesday.

Rosario has struggled with Double-A New Britain this season, hitting .237/.274/.389 after slashing .284/.330/.412 there in 2013. Additionally, Rosario has been playing less at second base as of late, lending more credence that his future defensive home is the outfield, which would put more pressure on him to perform offensively. Rosario is just 22, but he'll need to have more good days to keep his fringe top-100 prospect status.
Aug 7 - 9:12 AM

Eddie Rosario is set to return to the Double-A New Britain lineup on Saturday after missing four games.

Twins director of minor league organizations Brad Steil described Rosario's absence as a "team situation" and said that Rosario is not injured. Rosario served a fifty game suspension earlier in the season for violating baseball's drug policy.
Aug 2 - 6:41 PM

Twins prospect 2B/OF Eddie Rosario had a huge game Tuesday, going 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double and four RBI for Double-A New Britain.

Rosario's season didn't begin until early June after serving a 50-game suspension for PEDs, and he subsequently struggled to get things going at the plate back in Double-A. However, the 22-year-old's bat has come alive in July, with a .295/.325/.577 batting line and 12 extra-base hits in 21 games. Since returning to Double-A, Rosario has played just 13 games at second base compared to 32 games in the outfield.
Jul 23 - 2:07 PM

Twins prospect Eddie Rosario went 3-for-5 with a home run in his second game for Double-A New Britain on Saturday.

In the 10 games since his return from a 50-game suspension, Rosario has hit .350/.409/.450, including 5-for-10 with a double and a home run in his return to the Eastern League. Rosario has played more center field than second base since his return, and could be in line for a full-time position change. However, the Twins could use him as a player who plays every day while moving between second base and the outfield, which would only serve to increase his fantasy value.
Jun 8 - 9:44 AM

Twins prospect Eddie Rosario went 1-for-5 with a single and a strikeout on Friday for High-A Fort Myers while playing center field.

Rosario missed the first 50 games of the season after a suspension for a drug of recreational use. After exclusively playing second base in 2013, Rosario has played center field in his first two games of 2014. Reports on Rosario's defense at the keystone were not particularly positive, so this move may be permanent.
May 31 - 12:02 PM

Twins second base prospect Eddie Rosario will make his 2014 debut with High-A Fort Myers on Thursday.

Rosario was suspended for 50 games for testing positive for use of a recreational drug. There were questions regarding Rosario's ability to handle second base prior to his suspension, and with the emergence of Jorge Polanco (who has been playing second base for Fort Myers) it will be interesting if Rosario is shifted back to the outfield.
May 29 - 10:58 AM

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Twins second base prospect Eddie Rosario has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for recreational drug use.

It's the second strike for Rosario for violating the minor league drug policy. While the 22-year-old is immensely talented, he desperately needs to get his life together off the field or risk derailing a once very promising career.
Jan 4 - 2:53 PM

Major League Baseball probably won't rule on Twins second base prospect Eddie Rosario's 50-game suspension appeal until early next month, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Rosario has told the media in his native Puerto Rico that it's "unlikely" his appeal will be successful. A source close to the situation told the newspaper that he is more confident than Rosario. "We feel confident but you never know about these things," the person said. "It was a simple mistake that could have happened to anyone." Rosario, who may have been used as a trade chip this winter if he hadn't been suspended, has said he tested positive for taking a pain medication to aid an injury to his throwing arm. "It's a red flag," an NL executive said. "Not just for what came before, but now if you acquire the player and he tests positive again -- even if it's a tainted sample or something like that -- you're looking at a 100-game suspension."

According to Sport LivePR in Puerto Rico, Twins prospect second baseman Eddie Rosario has been suspended for 50 games for violating the minor league drug policy.

The report hasn't been confirmed by MLB, but Rosario reportedly informed his winter league team in Mayaguez of the suspension, which he claims was caused by some pills he took to recover from an arm injury. One of the more promising position prospects in the Twins' system, the 22-year-old batted .302/.350/.460 with 10 home runs and 73 RBI over 122 games this past season between High-A Fort Myers and Double-A New Britain.

Twins prospect second baseman Eddie Rosario was promoted to Double-A New Britain on June 9.

Rosario, as well as top prospect Miguel Sano, were both promoted after an excellent start to the season at High-A Fort Myers. The 21-year-old was batting .329/.377/.527 with 40 runs scored, 13 doubles, five triples and six home runs through 52 games. Considering his promising bat and ahead-of-schedule development, Rosario should be a factor on the Twins infield at some point in 2014.

Eddie Rosario doubled and scored off the bench in the Twins' 8-7 win over the Marlins on Friday and is now 6-for-10 this spring.

The Twins have struggled to develop middle-infield prospects, but they seem to have a good one in Rosario, who will play for Puerto Rico in the WBC. The plan was for him to open the season in high-A ball, but he might make a case for jumping right to Double-A.
