If there’s a surprise player that is able to edge into the Twins outfield, you are now looking at him. Arguably my leading candidate to turn in a Danny Santana kind of season in 2015, Rosario possess the ability to play outfield at the major league level. After returning from his suspension, his 2014 season didn’t go as planned, but it’s time to get back on the horse.
With Hicks slated for center, and Arcia pegged for left, the role of Rosario immediately is unclear. With that in mind however, there’s no doubt he possesses a higher upside than depth options like Jordan Schafer and Shane Robinson. Should Rosario be able to look strong at the plate, as well as contribute defensively in left field during Spring Training, he could become an option sooner rather than later.
