Eddie Rosario ended up 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 8-1 loss against the Indians.

Rosario has belted four homers with six RBI over his past four outings, and he has six of his nine home runs just since May 27. He is on quite the tear and it wouldn't be shocking to see him slide up manager Paul Molitor's order if he continues to deliver.

Eddie Rosario went 4-for-5 with three homers and five RBI as the Twins crushed the Mariners 20-7 on Tuesday.

When Scooter Gennett had his four-homer game last week, it raised his OPS from .758 to .914. Rosario, who has had more consistent playing time since Opening Day, merely jumped from .676 to .747 tonight. Some expected more after his fine showing in the WBC in March, but his approach at the plate remains poor and he hasn't been as impressive defensively since his rookie season in 2015. Hitting three homers off two Triple-A pitchers (Christian Bergman and Casey Lawrence) and a backup catcher (Carlos Ruiz) doesn't really enhance his stock.
Jun 13 - 11:47 PM

Eddie Rosario went 3-for-5 with a homer and two RBI in the Twins' loss to the Astros on Wednesday.

Rosario hit an RBI single in the bottom of the fourth inning, a solo homer in the bottom of the sixth inning, and a double in the bottom of the eighth -- finishing a triple away from the cycle. The 25-year-old outfielder is batting .269/.302/.431 with five home runs, 15 RBI, and 20 runs scored in 47 games this season for Minnesota.
May 31 - 4:50 PM

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-3 and lined a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Rays.

His homer off Rays' starter Jake Odorizzi tied the game at two runs apiece in the fourth inning. The 25-year-old outfielder has a .257 batting average with four home runs and 12 RBI in 43 games.
May 27 - 6:16 PM

Eddie Rosario collected his third homer and his fourth walk Thursday in the loss to the A's.

Rosario is right about on his usual paces. He had 13 homers and 15 walks in 474 plate appearances as a rookie in 2015. Last year, it was 10 homers and 12 walks in 354 plate appearances. This year, it's three homers and four walks in 97 plate appearances.
May 4 - 5:17 PM

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.
Apr 21 - 11:28 PM

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.
Mar 26 - 4:22 PM

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.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 04:09:00 PM

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.
Thu, Sep 15, 2016 04:37:00 PM

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.
