Eddie Rosario News
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario is hitting leadoff on Thursday in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers and right-handed opener Joe Kelly. Rosario previously hit fifth in Atlanta's Game 4 win with shortstop Dansby Swanson batting leadoff. The outfielder hit .259 with a .305 on-base percentage, 14 home runs, and 11 stolen bases in 412 plate appearances during the regular season. He's reached base 11 times in his last three games against the Dodgers, collecting a pair of four-hit games in the process.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario is starting in left field and batting fifth on Wednesday in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series. Rosario is hitting .400 with a .464 on-base percentage in 27 plate appearances this postseason. He's been particularly productive as of late, with five hits and a pair of walks in his last 10 plate appearances. The outfielder previously hit leadoff in the first three games of the series but will bat fifth against Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Julio Urias. In 120 plate appearances against left-handed pitching during the regular season, Rosario hit .265 with a .288 on-base percentage, a 76 wRC+, and a .651 OPS.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario is in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the National League Championship Series. The veteran is batting leadoff on Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Reliever Corey Knebel will start the game for the Dodgers. While Rosario doesn't have a hit in four career plate appearances against Knebel, he does have a hit in each of his four postseason appearances this year. The 30-year-old hit .259 with a .305 on-base percentage, 14 home runs, and 11 stolen bases in 412 plate appearances during the regular season.
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.
