Eddie Rosario News
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario (hamstring) is serving as the designated hitter and is batting sixth on Monday against the Pittsburgh Pirates and right-hander Roansy Contreras. Rosario missed Sunday's series finale against the Houston Astros with a sore hamstring, but he'll return a day later. The 30-year-old should continue to start regularly against right-handed pitchers moving forward. Rosario has been a bit better of late, but overall he's hitting a rough .187/.239/.313 with four home runs, 18 RBI, 17 runs scored and three stolen bases in 180 plate appearances over 53 games for Atlanta in 2022. Rosario can be a streaky hitter, but he's yet to really go on a hot stretch at the plate this season.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Houston Astros. Rosario is dealing with a sore left hamstring and should be considered day-to-day. The 30-year-old left-handed slugger only has 165 at-bats on the season and is hitting a rough .188/.240/.315 with four home runs, 18 RBI, 17 runs scored and three stolen bases for the Braves. With Rosario on the bench Sunday, Marcell Ozuna will return to the lineup in left field while hitting eighth against Astros right-hander Jose Urquidy. Ozuna hasn't played since being arrested on Friday morning for driving under the influence.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup on Tuesday against the division-rival New York Mets. Rosario was injured on Monday and will likely miss a couple of days, but the Braves expect him to avoid a trip to the injured list. With Rosario sidelined, Robbie Grossman is starting in left field on Tuesday and is batting ninth against Mets right-hander Taijuan Walker. Grossman has gone 5-for-19 (.263) with no homers, one RBI and a run scored in his first eight games in Atlanta after being traded from the Detroit Tigers. The 32-year-old veteran was plagued by injuries earlier in the year and hit just .205/.313/.282 with two homers, 23 RBI, 24 runs scored and three stolen bases in 83 games for the Tigers.
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.
