News 
 Minnesota Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario went 2-for-4 with a run in an 8-5 win over the Royals on Thursday.
Matthew Terelle
Fri, Sep 20th
Mitch Haniger (back) has still not been officially ruled out for the season, but his back hasn't shown any tangible improvement and he's likely to sit out the team's remaining games."He still has a few issues going on," manager Scott Servais said. "Obviously we're at the point in the season where it doesn't look great for him getting back on the field. I don't rule out anything, but it would be very difficult."

Notes 
 Rosario produced nearly identical stat lines in 2017 and 2018, suggesting he is a pretty safe bet to produce around 25 HRs, 10 SBs, and a batting average in the .290 range. He may lack the upside of some of the other names coming off the board around pick 80, but if you're looking for a steady across-the-board contributor, don't hesitate to call Rosario's name.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Haniger built on his impressive 2017 debut with the Mariners in 2018, producing a .285/90/26/93/8 roto line that ranked 10th among outfielders. The power and speed numbers look completely sustainable for Haniger, but his batting average could be due for a bit of regression and it may be challenging to produce 90+ runs and RBIs again in a rebuilding Mariners lineup. Haniger is unlikely to be a bust, but last season's numbers are probably closer to his ceiling than his floor.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 Oddly undervalued after hitting .290 with 27 homers and nine steals in 2017, Rosario replicated his breakout by batting .288 with 24 long balls and eight steals in 138 games. Yet he's still not flying up draft boards because of a miserable second half (.240/.262/.387) unnerved by a quad injury. This isn't a case to panic over a summer swoon, as the 27-year-old has the makings of someone who will ebb and flow throughout the season, but produce consistent annual returns. Although his value drops in OBP and points league, Rosario makes a quality five-by-five option.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Not much changed for Haniger from 2017 to 2018 besides his walk rate (10.2%) and playing time. Over a full season, the perennial sleeper translated his skills to 26 homers and eight steals with 90 runs and 93 RBI. Although his surface stats were similar, he earned last year's success with an xwOBA boost from .329 to .366. A ransacked Mariners lineup will cost him some scoring production, but the outfielder should otherwise sustain his breakout if healthy.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
 Rosario has been remarkably consistent the past two years with a .290 and .288 batting average, 27 and 24 homers, 78 and 77 RBIs and 9 and 8 steals. Expect much of the same from him again this season, making him worthy of a 6th round pick in standard leagues.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Although Haniger hasn't done it for as long as someone like Nelson Cruz or Justin Upton, he was better than both last year thanks to a .285 batting average on top of his 90+ runs, 90+ RBIs and power. Projection models are fond of him once again this year, but there is a bit more risk than the aforementioned annual powerhouses.
