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. Sep 20 - 5:41 PM

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.
Aug 8 - 11:04 PM

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.
Jul 24 - 12:51 AM

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.
Jul 2 - 10:09 PM

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.
May 18 - 7:39 PM

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.
May 15 - 3:56 PM

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.
Apr 21 - 5:09 PM

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.
