Rosario went 4-for-4 with an RBI and three runs in Saturday's 11-9 victory over the Red Sox. Rosario plated Kennys Vargas with a seventh-inning single, and put together his second four-hit day of July. The 24-year-old has exploded during the month, slashing .396/.411/.642 and raising his season average a whopping 62 points since July 3.
Rosario went 1-for-4 with his fifth home run in Wednesday's win over Detroit. He's hitting .348 (16-for-46) with two home runs since called back up from the minors on July 2. Rosario has been hot at the plate but may still not get everyday duty as the Twins have five outfielders they're trying to get regular playing time. Some moves at the trade deadline could free up everyday at-bats for Rosario. While he's been hot at the plate, he's walked just once since July 2 and his 2.4 percent walk rate makes him prone to slumps.
Rosario is out of the lineup for Tuesday's contest with Detroit, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports. Following three consecutive starts, Rosario will get a maintenance day as Robbie Grossman fills in for him in left and bats second. Rosario has collected 13 hits in his last 31 at-bats, boosting his BA from .198 to .242 over his last seven games.
Rosario went 4-for-5 with a home run and two doubles in Saturday's win over the Rangers. Rosario is hitting .346 (9-for-26) in six games since being recalled from Triple-A. He'll likely get extensive playing time while he stays hot, although the Twins will try to keep him and Robbie Grossman in the lineup (Grossman has been getting time at DH).
Rosario will start in left field and bat eighth in the order Sunday against the Rangers, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports. The Twins formally recalled Rosario from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday morning, facilitating the move by designating reliever Kevin Jepsen for assignment. While Rosario entered the season in a starting role for the Twins, a porous .200/.218/.313 line across 115 at-bats resulted in his demotion to the minors in mid-May. He's since heated up with Rochester, hitting .319 with seven homers and 14 doubles in 160 at-bats, but regular playing time in the corner outfield won't be guaranteed with both Robbie Grossman and Max Kepler impressing in everyday roles.
