[edit] Biographical Information

Eddie Rosario has been a Twins prospect.

Rosario was picked by the Minnesota Twins in the 4th round of the 2010 amateur draft; the scout was Hector Otero. He hit .294/.343/.438 that summer for the GCL Twins, with 22 steals in 27 tries. He led the Gulf Coast League in steals, tied for 5th in runs (34), was 3rd in hits (57) and was 10th in average.

In 2011, Eddie excelled as center fielder for the Elizabethton Twins, batting .337/.397/.670 with 9 triples, 21 home runs, 17 steals (in 23 tries), 71 runs and 60 RBI in 67 games. He was among the Appalachian League leaders in average (4th), runs (1st by 13 over teammate Miguel Sano), hits (91, 2nd, one behind Brandon Drury), triples (1st, 2 ahead of Sano), OBP (9th), slugging (1st, 24 points ahead of Chase Davidson), OPS (2nd, .003 behind Davidson), home runs (1st, one ahead of Sano), RBI (2nd, one behind Art Charles) and steals (tied for 9th). Despite playing in a short-season league, he led the Twins chain in home runs. He joined Jamal Austin and Kevin Pillar in the league All-Star outfield and split Player of the Year honors with Drury. Baseball America named him as the 5th-best Appalachian League prospect, between Noah Syndergaard and Drew Vettleson (Sano and Drury went 1-2) and as the 3rd-best Twins prospect (behind Sano and Joe Benson).

The Guayama native split 2012 between the Beloit Snappers (.296/.345/.490, 32 2B, 70 RBI in 95 G) and GCL Twins (7 for 19, 3 2B, HR) while playing mostly 2B. He was 6th in the Twins minor league system with 74 RBI and third in doubles (behind Chris Colabello and Oswaldo Arcia). He tied for 9th in the Midwest League in doubles. Baseball America ranked him as the 12th-best MWL prospect, between Justin Nicolino and Jorge Bonifacio.

Rosario then made the Puerto Rican national team for the 2013 World Baseball Classic.
