Amed Rosario starts in left, while young infield takes shape: Guardians takeaways

CHICAGO -- Amed Rosario is starting in left field Monday night for the first time since the season opener on April 7 against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium. Rosario has been the Guardians’ regular shortstop since that outfield experiment, but plans could be changing with Andres Gimenez seeing more time at shortstop. Gimenez started at short Monday night for just the seventh time this season.

Guardians' Amed Rosario: Back-to-back three-hit games

Rosario went 3-for-4 in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the White Sox. Rosario recorded three singles for a second straight game, but unfortunately the three batters right behind him went a combined 0-for-10 in this contest. The 26-year-old has lifted his slash line to .240/.295/.279, but he's still without a home run through 112 plate appearances. He's added a stolen base, seven RBI and 12 runs scored. With Andres Gimenez holding down the shortstop spot, Rosario has moved into a starting role in left field of late.

Guardians' Amed Rosario: Dealing with sore wrist

Rosario is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics with what manager Terry Francona has said is a sore left wrist, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Rosario will be on the bench for a third straight game due to the issue, which Francona said has been bothering the 26-year-old off and on since the start of spring training. Francona indicated Saturday that the Guardians are hopeful the issue won't sideline Rosario for too long, but a trip to the injured list could grow more likely for the shortstop if he doesn't show improvement following Monday's off day.

Ball once again finds Guardians’ Amed Rosario at the wrong time, wrong place

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It wasn’t as memorable as the first time, but it carried more weight because the game counted. In the spring of 2021, the Indians decided to try newly acquired shortstop Amed Rosario in center field. He debuted in a Cactus League game against the Angels at Tempe Diablo Stadium. In three innings, he made three errors as the Angels scored eight unearned runs against ace Shane Bieber.

Why Andres Gimenez over Gabriel Arias? Myles Straw endorses Amed Rosario in LF– Terry Pluto’s Goodyear Scribbles

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Scribbles in my notebook after walking through the Guardians clubhouse and realizing this team is even younger than I thought:. 1. Some fans wanted to know why Andres Gimenez is still in major-league camp while phenom Gabriel Arias was sent to the minors. How about this: At 23, Gimenez is the veteran compared to the 22-year-old Arias. It’s more than age, but it makes the point of how the Guardians are expected to be the youngest team in MLB again this season.

Guardians' Amed Rosario: Inks new deal

Rosario agreed to a one-year, $4.95 million contract with the Guardians on Monday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. Rosario's contract for 2022 will more than double what he took home a season ago ($2.4 million). Last year he slashed .282/.321/.409 with 11 homers, 57 RBI and 13 stolen bases over 141 games. Rosario is an appealing fantasy option as long as he is playing every day and hitting high in the batting order. Guardians manager Terry Francona said last week that Rosario will move primarily between shortstop and left field in 2022, according to Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

When it comes to the Cleveland Guardians name change, Amed Rosario gets it

The Cleveland Guardians will be well represented by Amed Rosario. Amed Rosario is really immersing himself within the Cleveland Guardians fanbase. He wasn’t the focal point of the Guardians and Mets trade that saw Francisco Lindor get sent off to New York, but he was the player that stepped up in the first Lindor-less season the Guards have had in some time.

Guardians' Amed Rosario: Will see time in left field

Manager Terry Francona said Rosario will split time between shortstop and left field this season, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Rosario was primarily a shortstop last season, but Cleveland's prospect pool is deep at that position, whereas there's no clear everyday starter across the outfield yet. In 2021, Rosario slashed a solid .282/.321/.409 with 13 stolen bases, 11 home runs, 57 RBI and 77 runs scored in 141 games while often hitting near the top of the order. Those numbers play better in fantasy as a shortstop, but it was the second-best season of his career and his .340 BABIP suggests some slight regression may be due.
