RotoWire News: Rosario is expected to start Friday's Grapefruit League game, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune reports. (3/23/2017)

Profile: Rosario has the talent of an All-Star with very, very poor execution. He has a great arm, very good speed and ample power from a relatively slight frame and can make contact with virtually any pitch. Unfortunately, he's taken it as a personal challenge to do just that, as only two batters with at least 800 plate appearances over the last two seasons — Jonathan Schoop and Salvador Perez — have lower walk rates than Rosario's 3.3% mark. Only Adam Jones has chased more pitches out of the zone than Rosario's 43.9% over that time frame. Essentially, Rosario is pretty much at his ceiling unless he can develop better plate discipline. He's hit .268/.292/.443 over 828 major league plate appearances, which isn't particularly impressive for a corner outfielder who took a step back in his second season both offensively and defensively. Chances are it'll get worse, as pitchers attacked the zone with relatively the same frequency against Rosario in 2016 as 2015. As that number plummets, it'll be on Rosario to salvage his MLB career. There's an extremely good player in here, but can Rosario find it? At the very least, time is on his side — he'll spend nearly all of 2017 as a 25-year-old. (@Brandon_Warne)

The Quick Opinion: Rosario is just one tool away from being a possible star. Unfortunately, that tool is plate discipline, which can be really hard to develop at the game's highest level. He may platoon with Robbie Grossman this season but still should be good for double-digit home runs, a few triples and maybe some steals as well. He'll be a possible value pick in deep leagues.
