Eddie Rosario

Team: Puerto Rico
Position: 2B/CF
Bats: Left. Throws: Right

Rosario has a future with the Twins to go along with his present for Puerto Rico. The question about his role going forward is this: Where will he play? He has been a center fielder whom Minnesota is trying to make into a second baseman. Puerto Rico's WBC roster lists him in the outfield, so it'll be interesting to see where he plants himself on the field in his first WBC game on March 8. Either way, the kid can hit. He led the Appalachian League with 21 home runs and a .337 batting average in 2011; and in his first four spring training games this year, he hit .625.
