|Rockies content with Wilin Rosario |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/21/13) Before he re-signed with the Phillies, the Rockies flirted with the idea of bringing in free agent Carlos Ruiz to limit Wilin Rosario's at-bats at catcher, giving him more playing time at first base or in right field. But according to MLB.com, they're back on board with Rosario as their primary catcher.
"Wilin is our catcher," said Bill Geivett, the Rockies' senior director of major league operations. "We just need to find ways to keep his bat in the lineup. He's in a good place and has always been willing to help the team. But at his age, we don't worry about him playing catcher."
Rosario has more home runs since debuting Sept. 6, 2011, than any other catcher, but he's considered a liability defensively. The 24-year-old is confident he's taking the steps necessary to improve, though, pointing out that 2013 NL MVP candidate Yadier Molina wasn't a good hitter when he first broke into the big leagues.
"If he can hit after a couple years playing in the big leagues, why can't I be a good catcher?" Rosario said.

(11/3/13) According to the Denver Post, the Rockies are considering using Wilin Rosario at positions other than catcher more frequently next season. In two-plus seasons in Colorado, Rosario has been used almost exclusively as a catcher, with five games at first base, three games at third base and four games at designated hitter being the sole exceptions.
The Rockies may acquire a catcher on the free agent market in order to enable Rosario to play other positions -- namely, first base and right field -- more often. The team would like to give Rosario an opportunity to improve his defense as well as appear in the lineup more frequently. Brian McCann and Carlos Ruiz are among the free agent catching options the Rockies have explored.
