Eddie Rosario News
Cleveland Indians outfielder Eddie Rosario (abdomen) is doing rotational exercises and progressing well in his rehab program, according to Mandy Bell of MLB.com. Rosario has been out since just before the All-Star break with an abdominal strain, and while there is still no timetable for his return, manager Terry Francona said that he expects the team will have a better idea of Rosario's situation when the team is in Cleveland this weekend. The power had taken a dip this year, but Rosario has still remained fantasy relevant in deeper formats as he is slashing .254/.296/.389 with seven home runs, nine steals, 46 RBI and 29 runs scored over 76 games. While Rosario has been out, the Indians have been rolling with Harold Ramirez and Oscar Mercado in left field. Once Rosario returns, you'll see Ramirez and Mercado return to more of a bench role.
Cleveland Indians outfielder Eddie Rosario (abdomen) was placed on the 10-day injured list with an abdominal strain. He aggravated his abdominal injury on Monday and will miss at least the next 10 days. The 29-year-old outfielder is eligible to come off the 10-day injured list on July 16. It's unclear if the Indians' outfielder will need additional time to recover. Rosario is slashing .254/.296/.389 with seven home runs, 46 RBI, 29 runs scored, and nine stolen bases across 306 plate appearances in 2021. Fantasy managers should continue to stash Rosario if they can. Oscar Mercado should see an uptick in at-bats while Rosario is sidelined and is a speculative add in deep-league formats
Cleveland Indians outfielder Eddie Rosario (abdomen) is likely headed to the injured list after aggravating his abdominal injury on Monday, according to Indians manager Terry Francona. Rosario was initially pulled from Thursday's game against the Astros with the same issue and missed Friday's contest before returning to the lineup Saturday. The development is disappointing, given that the 29-year-old started off July by going 4-for-10 with one homer and two doubles. Rosario has provided some modest power and speed in deep mixed leagues. Oscar Mercado, who had a great rookie season in 2019 with 15 home runs and 15 stolen bases, will have some short-term power/speed upside in deep mixed and AL-only leagues with more playing time.
Coming off a career 2019 campaign, outfielder Eddie Rosario slashed .257/.316/.476 with 13 home runs and 42 RBI in just 231 plate appearances with Minnesota in 2020. Now with the Indians, Rosario will call Progressive Field home for 2021. Though he won't be hitting against Indians' pitching, Rosario has had tremendous success in Cleveland throughout his career. In 177 plate appearances (45 games) at Progressive Field, Rosario owns a career .353/.379/.653 line with 11 HR and a 1.031 OPS. Looking at Rosario's 2020 metrics, managers could shy away from Rosario due to a low overall exit velocity and overall hard-hit rate that ranked in the bottom third of MLB. This would be misguided. Rosario's 2020 metrics in these areas were relatively consistent with career averages resulting in 25-to-30 HR production. Furthermore, Rosario's 2020 zone contact rate of 84.2% was identical to his 2019 contact rate, and his 2020 14.7% strikeout rate (up ever so slightly from 14.6% in 2019) remained elite in the top-11% of MLB. Notably, Rosario's 2020 EV on FB/LD dipped down to 92 mph from 93.9 mph in 2019. This, coupled with a move to a less potent Indians' lineup, may slightly impact HR and RBI returns (if it outweighs his move to a better ballpark), but not enough to justify passing on Rosario at an ADP of 117.5. The always underappreciated but consistent Rosario should provide managers with a .270 average, 27-32 HR, and 90-100 RBI as an OF2/3 around the 120th pick. Draft with confidence.
