Eddie Rosario is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

It appears to be a simple day off. The Twins have shifted Aaron Hicks over to left field and are starting Byron Buxton in center.

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.
Sep 20 - 5:35 PM

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.
Sep 5 - 10:22 PM

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.
Sep 3 - 4:42 PM

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.
Aug 25 - 11:24 PM

Eddie Rosario missed the cycle by a single, knocked in three runs and scored three runs Thursday as the Twins beat the Mariners 9-5.

Rosario was hitting .272/.296/.396 a week ago. Eight extra-base hits in five games have changed that in a hurry, pushing him up to .294/.316/.462. One would think his lack of plate discipline will catch up to him at some point, but even if that happens, his defense in left field will help him stay in the lineup.
Jul 31 - 1:20 AM

Eddie Rosario hit his fourth home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

Rosario took Jeff Samardzija deep in the first inning for the solo shot, his only hit in four at-bats in the game. The homer gave him four dingers and 16 RBI through 38 games this season. Still just 23 years old, Rosario has largely held his own in his first go-round, batting .280/.304/.439 with five steals to go with his four homers.

Twins activated OF Eddie Rosario from the paternity leave list.

Rosario only missed one game. He's hit .287/.300/.425 with three homers and 12 RBI over 87 at-bats for the Twins this season.
Jun 12 - 12:27 PM

Twins placed OF Eddie Rosario on the paternity leave list.

He's only expected to miss one game, rejoining the club after Thursday's off day. Jorge Polanco has taken Rosario's spot on the roster.
Jun 9 - 11:33 PM

Eddie Rosario struck out twice and was credited with a sac bunt during Friday's game against the White Sox.

Since homering in his first major league at-bat, Rosario is 7-for-35 with one extra-base hit (a double) and a 15/1 K/BB ratio. But given his lousy Triple-A numbers, that shouldn't really come as any surprise. Instead of keeping him around as a backup, the Twins will probably return him to Triple-A soon.
May 22 - 11:12 PM

Twins recalled OF Eddie Rosario from Triple-A Rochester.

He's taking Oswaldo Arcia's (hip) spot on the roster and should see ample playing time. A former top-100 prospect, Rosario has really struggled the last two seasons since returning from a PED suspension, hitting just .242/.280/.379 this year at Rochester.
May 4 - 4:28 PM

Twins optioned OF Eddie Rosario to Triple-A Rochester.

The 23-year-old prospect hit .233/.227/.442 with a pair of homers and seven RBI in 43 spring at-bats. The Twins would prefer he play everyday at the Triple-A level to begin the season, but he should get an opportunity with the big league club at some point during the 2015 campaign.
