Solid first week in minors for Rockies' Wilin Rosario
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/4/15) Since being sent to Triple-A Albuquerque in the last week of April, Rockies first baseman Wilin Rosario has made a strong case to get a second look in Colorado at some point in the near future.
In seven games in the minors, Rosario is hitting .333 with three doubles, three runs scored and three RBI.
Rockies option first baseman Wilin Rosario to Triple-A
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) The Rockies have optioned first baseman Wilin Rosario to Triple-A Albequrque to make room for pitcher John Axford, according to the Denver Post.
Rosario is expected to play first base everyday in Triple-A and Rosario is frustrated by the move.
"I don't feel good," Rosario said. "I'd be lying to you if I said that. I need to be here. I'm playing at a big-league level.
"They need a couple pitchers this week. After that, I'll be back."
Rosario is hitting .357 with one home run and two RBI in 14 at-bats this season.
Rockies' Wilin Rosario still adjusting to first base
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario is still looking to figure things out at his new position, first base. Rosario misplayed a couple of ground balls Friday, but manager Walt Weiss still has faith in him figuring it out, according to the Denver Post.
"Both plays at first were not routine plays," Weiss said. "The ball down the line was a difficult play. ... The other was a throw in the dirt that he didn't pick. But he's working really hard and has a great attitude. I haven't backed off that all — having him at first."
Rosario is hitting .333 in 12 at-bats this season.
Rockies give Gonzalez, Morneau the night off vs. Dodgers' Kershaw
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Rockies manager Walt Weiss gave outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and first baseman Justin Morneau the night off Friday against Dodgers right-hander Clayton Kershaw in Los Angeles. Morneau is 0-for-3 lifetime against Kershaw, while Gonzalez has five hits in 30 at-bats against the Dodgers southpaw.
With Gonzalez on the bench, Weiss chose to go with Charlie Blackmon in right field, Corey Dickerson in left field and Drew Stubbs in center field. Wilin Rosario started at first and batted cleanup in place of Morneau.
Rockies' Morneau, Blackmon rest Friday against Cubs
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau and center fielder Charlie Blackmon were not in the starting lineup Friday against the Cubs. Chicago started left-hander Travis Wood.
Drew Stubbs replaced Blackmon in center field, while Wilin Rosario started at first base for Colorado.
Blackmon, who bats left-handed, is batting .143 (2 for 14) with one double and no RBI in three games. He also has one run, one walk and six strikeouts.
Morneau, who also bats left-handed, is batting .077 (1 for 13) with one double and no RBI in three games. He has no walks and one strikeout.
|2014 Summary: After experiencing a power decline in his sophomore season, Wilin Rosario seemed poised to raise his home run total in his third full year, but the 25-year-old just deepened his decline. After hitting 28 and 21 homers in his first two years as the Rockies' starting catcher, Rosario mustered just 13 last season. His power was sapped even more in the second half, when he hit four home runs in 146 at-bats, but on a positive note, Rosario became a much better contact hitter. After the All-Star Game, he struck out only 18 times and batted .301. Rosario ended 2014 with a .267 batting average, but with his lowest RBI (54) and run (46) totals as a full-timer, he ranked 14th in Fantasy points.|
Playing time status: Rosario appeared in only 106 games, as an experiment to have him play occasionally at first base never materialized. He also spent some time on the disabled list with a viral infection and a wrist injury. Rosario should increase his playing time, but a lack of a second position will limit his value.
2015 Outlook: Rosario seems far too young to have his best power-hitting days behind him, but he simply hasn't been hitting the ball as far the last two seasons. At least a slight rebound seems likely, and that would be enough to make Rosario a low-end No. 1 catcher in standard mixed leagues. That makes him a reasonable pick in the middle rounds of drafts in two-catcher formats.
