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.
