Wilin Rosario hit his 5th home run of the season on Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks. The blast was his first since June 6th.
Rosario is splitting time with Nick Hundley at catcher right now, and Hundley is playing quite well. Playing part time certainly has not helped Rosario's cause. He is only one year removed from being the promising young player who hit over 20 home runs two seasons in a row. Until he has a chance at seeing consistent playing time don't bank on that player showing back up.
Wilin Rosario went 3-for-5 with a RBI single, two solo home runs, and a strikeout against the Marlins on Saturday.
Rosario finally woke up his power bat, hitting his first homers since May 14th. He absolutely smashed one of the long balls, hitting a 457 foot shot to center, completely owning Miami's starter David Phelps. Rosario is getting too few plate appearances to warrant use in anything but NL-Only leagues, despite his .311 average.
Wilin Rosario went 3-for-5 with a run, and an RBI during Friday night's loss to the Giants. He now has 5 multi-hit games in his last 10 games. Rosario has bounced back after a slow start to the season resulted in him being optioned to triple-A.
Rosario is the Rockies' hottest hitter right now, posting a .328/.339/.541 slash line over 22 games with the club. He is starting to show signs of being the player he was in 2012 and 2013. With catcher-eligibility, legitimate power, and more than half his games played in Coors Field; Rosario is looking like a player that should be more than 37% owned in Yahoo! leagues.
Willin Rosario has been getting extra opportunities as of late with Justin Morneau injured. On Wednesday Rosario went 2-for-4 with a double and scored one run.
Rosario has been playing well in regular plate appearances since Morneau went down. Before today he was hitting .270 with one home run and five runs batted in over his last 10 games. Even when Morneau is ready to return, Rosario may keep getting regular at-bats. Keep him active in your lineup until he is sent back to a platoon role.
Willin Rosario will be the Rockies first baseman for the immediate future as Justin Morneau nurses concussion-like symptoms. In his start at first base he went 0-for-4, striking out once and leaving two runners stranded.
Rosario ran into Mike Bolsinger on Sunday who has been pitching exceptionally well this season.The entire Rockies lineup struggled as they failed to put up a run. While Rosario went hitless today, he is a solid start in most leagues at catcher, due to his catcher eligibility. Rosario will be useful as long as Morneau remains out of the lineup.
