RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Rosario missed the first two months of the 2014 season while serving a 50-game suspension for his second positive test for a drug of abuse, and he went on to bat just .243/.286/.387 in 87 games between High-A Fort Myers and Double-A New Britain. He did salvage his season to a certain extent by hitting .330/.345/.410 in the Arizona Fall League. Rosario had drawn walks at a decent rate but saw a sharp decline in 2015. He does make good contact and has shown good power through his minor league career. However, the off-field problems and a lackluster minor league season saw his prospect status take a hit. He also permanently moved to the outfield after playing second base the year before. While Rosario may not be viewed as a cornerstone of Minnesota's rebuilding effort, a strong start to the 2015 season could still see him in the majors this summer.
Rosario is one of Minnesota's best prospects after hitting .329/.377/.527 in 52 games at High-A Fort Myers and then .284/.330/.412 in 70 games at Double-A New Britain. He was moved to second base from the outfield for 2013, which should increase his chances to find a job with the Twins thin on infield talent. However, he had 14 errors at second base last year and it's not sure if he'll stay at the position. Rosario draws walks at a decent rate, makes good contact and has shown good power through his minor league career. He would have been a candidate to be called up early in 2014, but he was suspended 50 games by MLB for violating the minor league drug policy. He's appealing the suspension, but if it holds up, the missed time may hurt his development and will likely delay his debut with the Twins. He could still be with the team in September if the time off doesn't hurt him, and he may be Minnesota's starting second baseman or left fielder in 2015.
Rosario has become one of Minnesota's top prospects after hitting .296/.345/.482 at Low-A last season just age 20. Rosario missed six weeks after getting hit in the face by a line drive, but it did not seem to faze him as he had a .963 OPS after he returned. He draws walks at a decent rate, makes good contact and has shown good power through his minor league career. He moved to second base from the outfield last season, which could accelerate his advancement in a Minnesota organization devoid of strong middle-infield prospects. However, he made 15 errors in 65 games and it is not clear if his defense will be viable enough to keep him in the infield at higher levels. He will likely begin the season a High-A and could make an impact in the majors as early as 2014.
The 2010 fourth-round pick out of Puerto Rico crushed the ball for a second consecutive season in rookie ball, hitting .337/.397/.670 with 21 home runs for the Elizabethton Twins in the Rookie Appalachian League. The Twins moved to him second base during instructional league, which should enhance his fantasy value if he sticks in the infield. He's a rising prospect to grab in keeper leagues as a result.
