The Minnesota Twins uprising has officially begun. The Twins ninth rated prospect, Eddie Rosario made his big league debut last night against the Oakland Athletics.
Rosario started his big big league career with a bang, literally. On the first pitch he saw, Rosario hit a one-run home run. Not a bad way to start your career.
Rosario finished the night 1-4 and his home run got the Twins on the board first en route to their 13-0 win over the Athletics. Rosario’s homer will get all the attention but, he also looked comfortable in right field. Rosario can play all three outfield spots and second base, it’s a big reason why he got the call up.
Rosario’s debut is just the first of many big league debuts that will happen for Twins prospects this season. They have a handful of prospects that are on the cusp of getting their call-up. Alex Meyer, Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano are the most popular names.
When Meyer, Buxton and Sano get the call, they will likely make their debuts at Target Field. WHen Meyer makes his first career start, Target Field will be packed. When Buxton makes his first start, they may have to turn people away at the gate.
After suffering through four straight seasons in which they lost 90 or more games, Twins fans finally have something to be excited about. Last night was an awesome moment for Rosario and the organization. There will be plenty more fun moments on the way at Target Field. Stay tuned Twins fans.
