      Wilin Rosario: Elects to become free agent

      Rosario will become a free agent after declining his outright assignment to Triple-A, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Due to poor defensive abilities as a catcher, Rosario was forced to play a platoon role at first base in 2015. However, after playing arguably worse at first base, the Rockies opted to end the experiment and designate the 26-year-old for assignment. Rosario will likely sign with another team interested in his offensive prowess, but it remains to be seen if he will earn enough plate appearances to become fantasy relevant once more.

      Rockies' Wilin Rosario: Designated for assignment

      Rosario was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Friday, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports. With the Rockies opting against playing Rosario behind the plate in 2015, the 26-year-old was relegated to a platoon role at first base, logging 242 plate appearances (94 vs LHP) in 87 games. His defense at first base was arguably even worse than his defense at catcher, and the team ultimately decided to bump him from the 40-man to make room for more promising young players. Perhaps Rosario will draw interest from some AL teams while on waivers.

      Wilin Rosario has productive night, but Rockies fall to D-Backs

      Wilin Rosario went 2 for 3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored in the Rockies' loss to Arizona on Thursday. Rosario has really fallen out of favor in Denver, but he's always been able to hit. He got the start Thursday because he is batting well over .300 against lefties with an OPS just shy of 1.000 over his last three seasons. If Rosario can find a DH role in the AL next year or an everyday catching job for a team who wants to take a risk, he'd become instantly fantasy relevant.

      Rockies 1B Justin Morneau held out of Saturday's lineup vs. lefty

      Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres. Wilin Rosario will take over at first base with left-hander Robbie Erlin toeing the rubber for San Diego. Morneau has fared well since his return earlier this month (.303/.395/.455), but figures to continue sitting whenever the Rockies face a lefty.

      Rockies recall Wilin Rosario, two others from Triple-A on Tuesday

      Rockies slugger Wilin Rosario has been recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque. Rosario had two stints with the Rockies earlier this season, but was rather disappointing at the plate. The catcher/first baseman hit .273 with just five home runs in 183 at-bats for the Rockies. His numbers were a little bit better with the Isotopes, hitting .297 with five dingers. Rosario is in the starting lineup for Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks. He will be at first base and bat cleanup. The Rockies also recalled infielder Cristhian Adames and left-hander Rex Brothers from Triple-A, as rosters expanded on Tuesday.
