Eddie Rosario blasted a three-run homer in the sixth inning on Friday, powering the Twins to a come-from-behind 6-3 victory over the Tigers.

The Twins entered the sixth inning trailing 3-0 before rallying for six runs, capped off by Rosario's opposite field blast off of Joe Jimenez. It was Rosario's lone hit in three at-bats on the evening. He's off to a slow start, hitting just .226/.268/.302 with one homer and seven RBI.

Eddie Rosario finished 3-for-3 from the ninth spot in the order Sunday against the Red Sox.

Rosario played well for Puerto Rico in the WBC and is 10-for-22 in Grapefruit League games. He still figures to bat at the bottom of the lineup, but if he hits, he could get a chance to start against lefties. It helps his case there that he is a strong defensive left fielder.

Eddie Rosario delivered a walk-off sacrifice fly in the 11th inning as Puerto Rico defeated the Netherlands 4-3 to advance to the World Baseball Classic championship game.

It was an anticlimactic end to a brilliant and compelling game. The score was tied at 3-3 after 10 innings, so by WBC rules, runners were put on first and second base to begin the 11th. The Netherlands got the first crack at getting a run across, but they were unsuccessful after Curt Smith grounded into an inning-ending double play. Puerto Rico had better luck, as Yadier Molina dropped down a successful sacrifice bunt before Javier Baez was intentionally walked to load the bases. Rosario then hit a fly ball to shallow center field, but Jurickson Profar didn't have enough on his throw to cut down the runner at home plate. Puerto Rico will play the winner of Team USA vs. Japan, which will take place on Tuesday. The championship game will be played on Wednesday.
Mar 21 - 8:26 AM

Eddie Rosario will play for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic.

Rosario suffered a fractured left thumb in September, but he recently began playing in the Puerto Rican Winter League and should be fine for the WBC. The 25-year-old hit .269/.295/.421 with 10 homers and 32 RBI over 92 games this past season.

Eddie Rosario (thumb) will begin playing in the Puerto Rican Winter League next week.

Rosario's 2016 season ended prematurely due to a fractured left thumb, but he's fully recovered now. He'll enter spring training without any limitations.

Eddie Rosario has been diagnosed with a fractured thumb and is done for the rest of the season.

The injury does not require surgery and only requires six weeks of rest and rehab, so Rosario should be 100 percent leading into spring training next February. The young outfielder batted .269/.295/.421 with 10 home runs and five stolen bases in 92 games this season for Minnesota. He drew just 12 walks in 354 plate appearances.

Eddie Rosario went 3-for-4 with a couple of runs scored Thursday against the Tigers.

The Twins are primarily going with Rosario in left against righties and Robbie Grossman versus lefties, which seems like the right idea. Rosario's lack of plate discipline has left him a below average starter this year, but he still looks pretty good when he makes contact. He's hitting .271 with nine homers in 328 at-bats. Unfortunately, he's walked all of 11 times (twice intentionally) in 90 games.

Eddie Rosario hit his ninth home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

The home run, a solo shot off Royals starter Dillon Gee in the second inning, was Rosario's first since August 13. It was also his first RBI in 10 games. The 24-year-old has nine homers and five steals overall, and he's hitting a passable .268/.294/.420 on the year.

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over the Royals on Saturday.

Rosario started in center field and batted ninth in the lineup, and he took Royals starter Dillon Gee deep in the sixth inning for the two-run shot. The homer was his eighth in 64 games this year. Rosario has quietly been decent at the plate in those 64 games, batting .268/.289/.439 overall.

Eddie Rosario went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's win over the Astros.

Rosario scored the first run of the game in the Twins' decisive three-run fifth inning. The 24-year-old has been nearly impossible to retire since the calendar flipped to August, picking up 14 hits in 28 at-bats. He's looking like the Twins' regular center fielder for the stretch run with Byron Buxton optioned to Triple-A.

Eddie Rosario went a perfect 4-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

All four of Rosario's hits were singles, but that's about all the fault you can find with his night Saturday. The 24-year-old has been a breath of fresh air since being recalled on July 2, batting .396 (21-for-53) with two homers, seven RBI and 11 runs scored. With the Twins going nowhere, it would behoove them to continue to find Rosario at-bats with the hope that this could finally be the breakout that has been promised for years.

Eddie Rosario went 4-for-5 with a home run to lead the Twins over the Rangers by a score of 8-6 on Saturday.

In addition to the home run he smacked two doubles and scored four runs. Just recalled from Triple-A last week, Rosario was tearing the cover off the ball in the minors but has struggled in the majors this season. Today's great game raised his OPS from .544 to .616 in one fell swoop. He has four home runs in 141 at-bats.

Twins recalled OF Eddie Rosario from Triple-A Rochester.

The Twins haven't announced a corresponding move yet, though it appears Eduardo Escobar is headed to the disabled list with a strained hamstring. Eduardo Nunez will be the primary shortstop, with Rosario providing outfield depth. Rosario was on the Twins' Opening Day roster but was sent down to Rochester after hitting only .200 over his first 115 at-bats.

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.
