Twins OF Eddie Rosario to wait at least another day for first start


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario, who was called up from Triple-A on Monday, was not in Tuesday's starting lineup and will have to wait at least another day to get his first major-league start, reports MLB.com.

Twins manager Paul Molitor said he wanted to give Rosario another day to get acclimated.

"A lot of times you'd like to get them out there as quick as you can, but I talked to my coaches last night and we decided to sleep on it and give it another day," Molitor said. "I like the way the lineup looked last night."

Rosario missed the first 50 games of last season after a second positive test for a drug of abuse.

The 23-year old said he's been working to show better discipline at the plate after swinging wildly at the start of the year.

"That was the main thing for me," he said. "Now I have more discipline."

Rosario was hitting .242 with one triple, two doubles, three home runs and 12 RBI in 23 games in Triple-A.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins manager Paul Molitor said Rosario's promotion will "not be a long-term situation," which is why he got the call over Aaron Hicks, per FSN Sports North.

Rosario is not off to a great start offensively at Triple-A Rochester. The 23-year-old is batting .242 with one triple, two doubles, three home runs and 12 RBI in 23 games. 

Rosario has totaled a .291/.340/.480/.820 slash line over six seasons in the minors.

Thar's what I want to become. I don't want to be a Triple-A player. I want to be in the big leagues," Hicks said, per the Pioneer Press.  "I'm starting to understand this game at the big league level."

Eddie Rosario and Trevor May were optioned to Triple-A Rochester, while Mark Hamburger was reassigned down to minor-league camp.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I haven't made up my mind on how that's going to play," Molitor said. "Aaron (Hicks) knows that. I think (Jordan) Schafer and (Shane) Robinson and Eddie all know. They're out there playing. They have reason and motivation to play as well as they can. We don't have to make a decision yet. We've got a little time."

He did not appear in the majors last season, but has a chance to make the club in 2015.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2014) 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.


Eddie Rosario to wait on appeal


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) 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.
