Twins optioned OF Eddie Rosario to Triple-A Rochester.
Rosario was hitting just .209/.227/.330 over 115 at-bats. He posted an encouraging rookie campaign that included 13 homers, 15 triples, 18 doubles and 11 steals, but little of that versatility has come to play in 2016. Rosario won't turn 25 years old until September and has the talent to bounce back from this. For the time being, he will be replaced on the active roster by outfielder Robbie Grossman, whom the Twins signed to a minor league contract on Tuesday. May 18 - 8:50 PM

The St. Paul Pioneer Press' Mike Berardino reports the Twins have optioned Eddie Rosario to Triple-A Rochester.

This isn't an official move as of yet, but Rosario has been struggling mightily of late. The 24-year-old's listless .209/.227/.330 triple-slash is tough enough, but he compounded the issue with base-running and fielding gaffes against the Tigers on Wednesday. To the point that manager Paul Molitor opted to replace him on defense in the seventh inning. That might have been Rosario's last major league action until he can offer proof of life in the minors.

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Indians.

Rosario came through with an RBI single off Indians starter Trevor Bauer in the second inning to knock in the first Twins run of the game. He would wait until the ninth to inflict further damage, notching a big two-run double to push the score to 5-1 and provide some much-needed insurance. The 24-year-old outfielder holds an unappealing .212/.231/.337 triple-slash across 104 at-bats. He should be in play for double-digit steals and homers when all is said and done, but does not offer fantasy upside outside of very deep AL-only formats.

Eddie Rosario had a 4-for-4 day in the rout of the Brewers on Thursday.

Rosario needed this with Oswaldo Arcia honing in on his starting job. Rosario had been hitting just .178/.229/.356 in 45 at-bats.

Eddie Rosario is not in the Twins' lineup Friday.

He's getting a breather after picking up two hits in his first 12 at-bats. Danny Santana is in left field in Rosario's place.
Apr 8 - 4:31 PM

Eddie Rosario homered and walked Thursday as the Twins topped the Red Sox 7-4.

Rosario opened the spring batting second, but he's set to hit fifth now, which is much better spot for someone with his talents. The homer was his fourth in 56 at-bats this spring, while the walk was his third. Last year, he had 13 homers and 15 walks in 453 at-bats.
Mar 31 - 4:49 PM

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-3 as the Twins' No. 5 hitter Sunday against the Yankees.

Manager Paul Molitor has looked at Rosario as a No. 2 hitter this spring, but today he was using something much closer an ideal setup, with Brian Dozier leading off, Joe Mauer batting second and Miguel Sano occupying the third spot. We're hoping that's the way it looks at the start of the regular season, too. Rosario, who had a .289 OBP last year, belongs in the middle of the order, not near the top. He's had a nice spring, with a .313 average and a .625 slugging percentage in 32 at-bats. Of course, he's yet to draw a walk.

Eddie Rosario is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

Eddie Rosario went 1-for-4 with a triple and three RBI as the Twins dropped a heartbreaking decision to the Tigers on Friday in Detroit.

Rosario got the game's scoring started with a three-run triple in the fifth inning and came around to score on a sacrifice fly. Unfortunately, that would wind up being the extent of the Twins offense in the ballgame. The 23-year-old has done a nice job in his rookie season, slashing .268/.289/.462 with 12 homers, 49 RBI and 11 stolen bases.

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Angels.

Rosario smashed a two-run homer off Angels starter Matt Shoemaker in the third inning. It was his 11th of the season. His current seven-game hitting streak has boosted his season triple-slash to .273/.293/.462. In addition to the 11 taters, the 23-year-old outfielder has driven in 44 runs and stolen 11 bases.

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk and a steal Wednesday against the Tigers.

It was a rare walk. Rosario's K/BB was a scary 47/8 in 194 at-bats before the All-Star break, but it's worse at 57/5 in 199 at-bats since. Still, he's showing nice pop and playing pretty good defense, which is enough to keep him in the lineup.

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-4 with a two-run triple and a double in Saturday's win over the Astros.

Rosario snapped a 1-1 tie with his two-run triple off Astros reliever Luke Gregerson in the ninth inning. It was his 11th three-bagger of the season. The 23-year-old outfielder is throwing up some nice numbers this season, including a .271/.290/.450 triple slash, nine homers, 39 RBI and 10 steals.

Eddie Rosario connected for a grand slam in the third inning of Thursday afternoon's 6-4 loss to the White Sox.

An Eduardo Escobar infield single and a pair of walks issued by White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija set the stage for Rosario to work his grand salami magic with two outs in the third inning. The 23-year-old outfielder is posting one of the sneakier productive seasons in the bigs in 2015, as he maintains a .271/.291/.446 triple-slash with nine homers, 10 triples, 37 RBI and 10 steals.

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-5 with a triple and a home run in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

The triple was Rosario's 10th of the season, second in the majors only to Kevin Kiermaier. He also has eight home runs after Tuesday's solo shot. The 23-year-old is having a quietly steady debut season, batting .276/.298/.454 in 89 games.
