Eddie Rosario News
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario is back in the starting lineup Wednesday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks and right-hander Ryne Nelson. Rosario has been out since July 15 due to a hamstring issue but gets back into the lineup looking to bounce back from a tough month of July to this point. The veteran is hitting just .156 with a .541 OPS across 35 plate appearances this month after he broke out with a .325 average and nine home runs across just 23 games in the month of June. He will take his usual spot in left field and hit in the seven-hole Wednesday night in Atlanta.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario (hamstring) continues to sit out on Tuesday as the team takes on the Arizona Diamondbacks. Rosario is currently dealing with right-hamstring tightness and hasn't played since Saturday. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for now. With Rosario still out, Sam Hilliard will get the start in left field and will be in the nine-hole against Diamondbacks right-hander Zach Davies. The 31-year-old Rosario is a decent power bat when the Braves are facing right-handed pitching. He's hit .255 (71-for-278) this year with 15 long balls, 44 RBI and 39 runs scored. He's had only 33 at-bats against southpaws and is surprisingly hitting .364 (12 hits) against them, but only with three of his 15 homers.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario (hamstring) was removed from Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox with right hamstring tightness. He tweaked his hamstring while tracking down a double during the fifth inning. The 31-year-old was replaced by Kevin Pillar in the sixth inning. Rosario went 1-for-2 with a solo home run before exiting. He is considered day-to-day, and the Braves should have an update after the game. Pillar would see an uptick in playing time if Rosario were to miss additional games. The 34-year-old can be used as a streamer in deep leagues after slashing .252/.284/.485 with six home runs, 17 RBI, 16 runs, and three stolen bases over 109 plate appearances in 2023.
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.
