|Eddie Rosario receives 50-game suspension |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(1/4/14) Twins infielder Eddie Rosario has received a 50-game suspension for a "second positive test for drug of abuse," the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Rosario was given the suspension in November but had been waiting on the results of his appeal. He hit .302/.350/.460 with 10 home runs, 73 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 496 at-bats with high Class A Fort Myers and Double-A New Britain in 2013.

(12/17/13) Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario will wait a few more weeks on the results of his appeal, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Rosario was hit with a 50-game suspension in late November, but appealed the ruling. Rosario claims he took pain medication for an arm injury, which triggered the test. He said he's used a similar medication, potentially the same one, in the past and it never caused a positive test. A person with direct knowledge of the case says it's "unlikely" Rosario will win his appeal.

(11/20/13) The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that Twins second base prospect Eddie Rosario has received a 50-game drug suspension from Major League Baseball.
The news of the suspension came from Rosario himself, as MLB did not make an announcement, indicating that Rosario may have made an appeal. Rosario informed the general manager of his Puerto Rican Winter League team, as he thought the suspension applied to winter league play.
Playing for Double-A New Britain and Advanced Class A Fort Myers in 2013, Rosario turned in a .302 batting average with 10 home runs and 73 RBI.

(7/17/13) Twins second base prospect Eddie Rosario has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games for Double-A New Britain. Rosario is batting .366 (15 for 41) with one home run, five doubles, five runs and six RBI in his last 10 games.
Since his promotion from Class A Fort Myers, Rosario is batting .306 with a .438 slugging percentage, .806 OPS, one home run, two triples, nine doubles, 13 RBI and 20 runs in 31 games. Through 83 games this season, Rosario is batting .320 with a .374 on-base percentage, .494 slugging percentage and .868 OPS.
|Eddie Rosario promoted to Double-A |

(6/10/13) Twins second base prospect Eddie Rosario was promoted from Class A Fort Myers to Double-A New Britain Sunday, according to MLB.com. Rosario finished with a .329/.527/.903 slash line in 52 games for Fort Myers, while adding five triples, six home runs, 13 doubles, 35 RBI and 40 runs.
"Eddie's one heck of a second baseman. For a wiry guy, he's got a lot of pop, hits the ball well," Miracle manager Doug Mientkiewicz said.
|The Twins transitioned Eddie Rosario from center field to second base in 2012 in part because they felt they had a need there long-term. But with Brian Dozier's emergence in 2013, the Twins can afford to take it slow with the 22-year-old. In long-term keeper leagues, it's probably for the best. Rosario held his own after a midseason promotion to Double-A New Britain but still hasn't demonstrated the full extent of potential. He won't ever rank among the league leaders in home runs or stolen bases, but he'll contribute a fair number of both -- and with a high batting average to boot. Comparing him to Martin Prado might seem to be shortchanging his upside in some ways, but if that's the kind of player he ends up being, he'll have been well worth the investment. Just don't count on him getting more than a September callup in 2014.
