Wilin Rosario (C)
Willin Rosario stayed hot at the plate on Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox by going 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI. He now has his batting average at .324 for the spring.
Fantasy Impact: There were concerns whether or not Rosario would be a starter on the Rockies or if he'd even remain on the team. With the way he has been hitting in spring he should be easing those concerns as the Rockies will need to find ways to get him at bats whether it's playing him at catcher or first base. Rosario will be a potential high-value pick in fantasy drafts this season as he should provide excellent power from the catcher position.

Willin Rosario had a nice game against the Seattle Mariners. He went 3-4 with two home runs and 5 RBI.
Fantasy Impact: If Rosario keeps hitting like this in spring the Rockies will have no choice but to get him in the lineup. With the acquisition of Nick Hundley at catcher and Justin Morneau manning 1B, it was a concern as to where Rosario would play and how often. It is likely safe to leave Rosario to the waiver wire but be prepared to pounce should he get regular at bats as he offers major power potential from the catcher position.

Fantasy Impact: The Rockies signed Nick Hundley to a two year contract earlier this week, so questions are beginning to surround Rosario and whether he will be traded or kept. Rosario is one of the better young power-hitting catchers in baseball, averaging 20 homers over 114 games per season during the past 3 seasons. His fantasy stock will plummet if he remains with the Rockies, as he would likely split time with current first baseman Justin Morneau. If he does get traded, plan on him being a very solid fall-back option if you fail to draft one of the top catchers.
