Rosario went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three runs scored during Sunday's win over Cleveland. Rosario was a late scratch Saturday because of an illness, so it was encouraging to see him return to the lineup and post a big game. He's having a respectable fantasy season with a .280/.318/.471 slash line, 10 homers, 24 RBI and 33 runs. Those numbers move the needle in deeper settings.
Rosario (illness) is back in the lineup Sunday, playing left field and batting seventh, LaVelle E. Neal of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports. Rosario took a seat for Saturday's game with flu-like symptoms but came in to left field during the bottom of the eighth inning for defensive purposes. The 25-year-old should be good to go and at full health heading into the series finale.
Rosario was scratched from Saturday's lineup due to an illness, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Rosario was being monitored during the team's batting practice and it appears he failed the inspection. With Max Kepler (foot) and Miguel Sano (illness) both unavailable Saturday, the Twins are forced to trot Chris Gimenez out to left field and bat him seventh.
Rosario is not in the Twins' lineup against the White Sox on Thursday, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. He was hitting .341 over 14 games before sitting on Wednesday, and the Twins will continue his rest as they face a left-handed arm for the second straight day, this time in Jose Quintana. Robbie Grossman will take Rosario's place, but expect the latter to return to the lineup Friday as Minnesota is slated to face Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer.
Rosario is not in the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Rosario has been heating up at the plate, as he's batting .341 over the past 14 games and currently holds a six-game hit streak. He'll receive a breather after eight consecutive starts Wednesday, however. Robbie Grossman will man left field in his stead, with Miguel Sano taking a turn as the designated hitter and Eduardo Escobar slotting in at third to round off the lineup.
