Eddie Rosario News
The Atlanta Braves placed outfielder Eddie Rosario (eye) on the 10-day injured list with blurred vision and swelling in his right retina on Tuesday and recalled right-hander William Woods from the minors in a corresponding move. Rosario's injured list placement is retroactive to April 25. The 30-year-old will undergo a laser procedure on his eye that will keep him out for eight to 12 weeks, so fantasy managers can probably drop him in standard 12-team leagues. Rosario, a postseason beast last year for Atlanta, had just three hits, no home runs and no RBI with 10 strikeouts in his first 49 plate appearances this year. Guillermo Heredia, Orlando Arcia and Alex Dickerson could all see more playing time in the outfield with Rosario sidelined.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario (eye) is set to undergo a laser procedure on his right eye to address some swelling and some blurred vision. According to Justin Toscano of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Rosario could be out for 8-12 weeks following the procedure. Toscano also reported that the Braves should have a more clear timeline after the procedure is over, calling his 8-12 week timeline a "loose estimate." The 30-year-old was off to a rough start to the year, slashing just .068/.163/.091 over 15 games. He can be dropped in most standard size fantasy leagues at this point.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Eddie Rosario (eye) saw a retinal specialist on Monday and will undergo a laser procedure in the coming days to correct blurred vision and swelling in his right eye. The blurred vision and swelling in his eye certainly explains his rough start to the season -- 3-for-44 (.068 batting average) with no homers or RBI and 10 strikeouts in his first 15 games of the year. The 30-year-old is likely to be put on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday, which will open up more playing time for Marcell Ozuna and Alex Dickerson in the outfield. Hopefully for Rosario's fantasy managers, his eye procedure will clear up his vision and help him turn things around at the plate when he returns.
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.
