RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

From a pure fantasy perspective, Rosario was magnificent in his rookie season, leading all catchers in baseball with 28 home runs and finishing with a commendable .270 batting average, 71 RBI and 67 runs scored in an efficient 396 at-bats. However, a position-leading 13 errors and 21 passed balls tested the patience of both coaches and a struggling Rockies pitching staff often reluctant to throw breaking pitches to Rosario, yielding an underwhelming 1.8 WAR for the young catcher. Rosario even showed some flaws offensively, striking out in 23.2 percent of his at-bats while walking only 25 times -- both of which were actually improvements from his Double-A campaign the season before. Rosario will enter the season as the Rockies' top catcher, but his ineptitude defensively and his weak plate discipline could allow veteran Ramon Hernandez to see more action than fantasy owners might like. Rosario was sent to winter ball to refine his catching skills, and if an improvement in defense keeps Hernandez's starts less frequent, 35-home run potential is not out of the question.

2012

Rosario has the physical tools - raw power and a big arm - that make him a prized prospect in the Rockies' system. He swatted 21 homers at Tulsa over 405 at-bats before getting a taste of Colorado down the stretch. At 23 and having lost some development time to a torn ACL suffered in August of 2010, it's likely that Rosario will open the 2012 campaign at Triple-A. Although his plate discipline is a concern and he still needs some defensive polish behind the plate, Rosario's timetable to become the Rockies' starting catcher could be accelerated with the decision to trade Chris Iannetta to Anaheim.

2011

Rosario, one of the top prospects in the Rockies' system, had a breakout season in Double-A Tulsa hitting .285/.342/.552 with 19 homers in 270 at-bats last year. Unfortunately, he suffered a torn ACL in August, an injury that required surgery to correct. His rehab is expected to sideline him through the early part of spring training. Once healthy, expect Rosario to pick up where he left off and push for a late-season callup. Depending on what Chris Iannetta does, the job may be Rosario's by the time he arrives with the big club.

2010

Rosario had a quiet 2009 at High-A Modesto before hitting .302 with four homers and 12 RBI in 15 games during the Arizona Fall League. Rosario looked very focused and sharp in the fall, perhaps finally healthy after dealing with an inflamed wrist in August. At best, he is an average defensive catcher and thus far at the plate, he's been a streaky hitter. It's possible his bat will play in Colorado because he has the bat speed and quickness at the plate to drive the ball to all fields. Still very young, Rosario should be able to improve his game at Double-A in 2010, and his offensive potential makes him worth targeting in keeper leagues.

2009

Rosario is an excellent long-term catching prospect who can be expected to stay behind the plate as he gets older thanks to a strong arm. He'll reach full-season ball in '09 on his way to being 2012's Geovany Soto. Rosario's long-term future may well be in a different organization, so don't count on Coorsflation. He's a keeper, regardless.
