RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
