BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario. Top 5 global prospect?
(John from NY)
Nah, that's a little too high. I like Rosario a lot, but he's more of a top ten guy to me than top five. There are about to be some graduations, I think, so maybe he ends up there, but not right now. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-09-07 19:00:00 (link to chat)So who do you take J.P. Crawford or Amed Rosario and do you have a guy who could really rise in prospect ranks next year?
(Mike from NY)
Crawford. I'll be a homer and take Thomas Szapucki for the second part. I guess this begins the Thomas Szapucki portion of the chat. (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Whats your Amed Rosario prospect evaluation/projection? Top 10 prospect this offseason?
(Rick from Montville)
I'd say Rosario's not a terrible bet for the top 10. We had him 15th at mid-season, and all he's done since is hit .341 as a 20-year-old in AA. I liked him at lot in a brief look at the Future's Game, and Thomas Desmidt has a pretty glowing report on him from earlier in the season here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=341 (Wilson Karaman)
2016-08-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you project Dom Smith and Amed Rosario?
(Earl from Michigan)
Dom Smith is a pretty polarizing guy, and I'm firmly in the nonbeliever camp. The red flags are everywhere, and I'm just not convinced that he'll be able to hold his own at first base. Honestly, get excited for Peter Alonso. I'm probably the high guy on him for our team, but I've seen him a ton, and I think he's going to mash. Intelligent hitter, great pitch recognition, plus power to all fields. I'd bet on him over Smith pretty comfortably.

I covered a ton of the Florida State League this year, and Amed Rosario made suffering through the heat worth it whenever I saw him play. I know our fantasy staff has sung his praises enough to convince the masses of his potential, but he's really something to see in person. I think the upside here is regular All-Star, and anchor of the Mets infield. Also, if you haven't yet, go follow him on Twitter, he's great. (Will Haines)
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Whats your opinion on Amed Rosario? Top 10 prospect with at least 60 FV?
(Gref from NY)
He's not in my personal top-10, but I'm not on the Prospect Team -- so I defer to them on this. I don't think he has impact-enough potential to be in the top-10. (J.P. Breen)
2016-08-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)Breakout years for Dom Smith and Amed Rosario. What does that mean for their prospect statuses and their MLB projections going forward? Thank you
(Brooke from NJ)
That they'll be ranked higher next year? Smith still needs to add some power, and Rosario has only had six weeks of exposure to the high minors. There's a lot to like, especially with Rosario, but there's still a far amount of downside risk, too. Projections systems have long memories, but they've both moved the needle a little long-term this year, though. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Big Yankee fan here. My friend who is a Mets fan is trying to tell me Amed Rosario is better and will be better in MLB than Gleyber Torres. Tell him that hes wrong please
(Dan from Yankee Farm)
Eeeeeeesh. Just agree with your Metsfan friend to both be happy your respective New York team has a quality shortstop prospect in the pipeline. (Adam McInturff)
2016-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Amed Rosario? Can he be an impact regular/4+ WAR guy?
(Greggy from NC)
Without question. His upside competes with any shortstop in the minor leagues right now not named Brendan Rodgers (Yes, JP Crawford is the best shortstop prospect, but that's mainly because his floor is just stupid high). Gotta give it time and there's some volatility here, but without question he has that in him. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Amed Rosario? Top __ prospect this offseason, and at best, __ WAR per year player.
(Riley from AZ)
20 and 3. I think Rosario is the type of guy to have a four-win season and a one-win season back to back based on batted balls and defensive metric data, all while being roughly the same player. But I don't know anything. (Bryan Grosnick)
2016-07-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Whats your take on this Amed Rosario craze? What kind of big-leaguer do you see him becoming?
(Hunter from NY )
He's good! The insane numbers at Double-A should come down soon (he's only 82 PAs into the level after all) but if it all clicks, he's a solid top-of-the-order guy with good defense up the middle. Probably a bit more valuable in real life than in your fantasy league, but we'll see. (Nicolas Stellini)
2016-07-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario or Gleybar Torres- Fantasy wise?
(Ben from Chicago)
Let me preface by saying I'm not a fantasy baseball person. But I'll say Torres. Rosario is in Double-A, and the age difference is just a year, but Rosario's still a lot of potential to me. The reports on Torres seem to favor him. I'll be seeing him in Tampa in a bit, so I'll have an even better idea then. (Jessica Quiroli)
2016-07-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tell me about what you saw from Amed Rosario, I want to know everything; he's my favorite prospect! What kind of MLB player do you think he'll become?
(Adamah from NY)
Since I just answered a question about him, I'll continue my thoughts. What stood out in conversations about him is that he's being looked to as a leader, and he's embraced that. That's always a good sign. He's teachable. He wants to learn. I wasn't surprised he got promoted to Bing, and would assume he starts there for a full season in 2017. (Jessica Quiroli)
2016-07-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was hoping you could give some more insight into what you predict from Amed Rosario. Fair to think he can be a 4 WAR guy?
(Adamah from NY)
Lots of good talk about Rosario today! haha I don't mind. I know Mets fans are super excited and hopeful about his development. He's emerging as a team leader, and he's working on pitch recognition. He's only 20, so he's got a ways to go and time to grow. I'd predict he's in Double-A to start 2017, but might depend on how he does in the final stretch of this season. (Jessica Quiroli)
2016-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario! Tell me what your thoughts are!!!
(Amed from Rosario)
Lot of Rosario questions in the queue: I'm always a little nervous of players whose offensive value is totally driven by their hit tool. It's the hardest tool to evaluate, and if it ends up a little light of expectations, it's hard for a player to recapture that "lost" value somewhere else. That said, I've heard good things, and he'll stick at shortstop. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario. What's your take? Future first division starter? Where would he be on top prospect lists right now?
(Artie from Pittsburgh )
A lot of Amed Rosario questions in the queue, is he doing well or something? I joke.

I have not seen him or St. Lucie yet as the scheduling forced me to pick between Fort Myers in Lakeland, or St. Lucie in Tampa during the same week...I picked Fort Myers.

Thomas Desmidt will have an eyewitness report up on him soon though! (Steve Givarz)
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)Which mets prospects do you like and why? How many first division regulars? Thanks a ton, Steve
(Greg from Ny)
I have not had a chance to see St. Lucie yet. I have been told that Amed Rosario is a GUY. I would talk to Thomas Desmidt for all mets related questions. (Steve Givarz)
2016-06-07 12:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Amed Rosario's Potential?
(Craig from NYC)
I guess Rosario could be this Summer's Robles? Gotten huge reports on him both internally here at BP and from scouts that have seen him. He is repeating (though still young for the level) and I do want to see how the approach holds up in Double-A, but the offensive tools seem to be catching up with the defensive ones. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-06-13 23:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Amed Rosario's potential?
(Dan from nyc)
I just wrote about him in the MLU the other day, he's one of the best SS prospects in baseball at this point. The bat has really shown impressive progress in one of the worst offensive leagues in the minors, and the defensive projection hasn't changed from being very good. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Amed Rosario going to be a fantasy stud?
(Sam from Colorado)
Another popular name in the queue... Amed Rosario is not someone I've put eyes on yet but I asked around on him. Glove first guy who is going to stick at short with a bat that is a touch long at times and doesn't lead to much hard contact. I'm not a fantasy baseball expert but I wouldn't invest too much yet. (James Fisher)
2016-06-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of potential does Amed Rosario have? Stud?
(Dan from NYC)
Yep. Stud. He's been really impressive in 2016. He gets overshadowed by some of the other shortstop prospects, but he really shouldn't. He's got as high as ceiling as any of them outside of Rodgers. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-06-16 21:00:00 (link to chat)How good could Amed Rosario be in fantasy? I remember seeing "Poor Mans Addison Russell"
(Keith Hernandez from Jerry Seinfeld's apartment )
Has the upside to be a five-category contributor who slides easily into the top-10 at shortstop. Don't sleep on his bat. (Bret Sayre)
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario - a top fantasy stud?
(Zack from NY)
I don't know if he'll ever be a top fantasy stud since that's a very high bar to clear, but he's showing real progress and looking very good so far this year. If I had him as a minor leaguer on a roto team, I'd be happy. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-06-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Amed Rosario? Top 30 prospect right now?
(Alex from Georgia)
Several Rosario questions in the queue, so he's certainly a hot topic these days. I think there's a case to be made for that type of ranking, yes, for a player at a premium position who's hitting well in the pitcher-friendly FSL at the age of 20. I'll defer to our prospect team on just how high his ceiling is, though. (Daniel Rathman)
2016-06-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ronald Acuna or Amed Rosario for fantasy dynasty leagues?
(PL from MA)
Rosario at this point, since he's a level ahead and plays shortstop, but Acuna has the tools and seems to have the strike-zone discipline to be a huge offensive contributor in time. (Daniel Rathman)
2016-06-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Long term fantasy wise - JP Crawford or Amed Rosario?
(Sam from ny)
Crawford for me. Big fan of what I've read on him, in spite of the slow first half at Triple-A. (Daniel Rathman)
2016-05-16 23:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on the potential of Amed Rosario?
(Tom from Nashville)
Thomas Desmidt wrote him up extensively in a Ten Pack a couple weeks ago. Jives with other reports I've got on him showing significant physical and offensive growth in the early season. Potential first-division true SS.

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=29072 (Wilson Karaman)
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Chris. What do you think of Amed Rosario? Looks great so far. Is he a guy who could skyrocket on top prospect kids by midseason?
(Greg from NY)
A ton to like. Chance for an above-average hit tool, average power at the plate, and he can flat out pick it at shortstop with a cannon for an arm. There's a real chance he's a top 50 prospect right now, maybe higher. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-05-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of player do you think Amed Rosario could be in a fantasy sense?
(Walter Sobchak from LA)
He could be a poor man's Addison Russell in terms of his ceiling. Realistically, you're probably looking at a shortstop in the top half at his peak. (Mike Gianella)
2016-05-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario potential?
(JR from Boston)
Tremendous. Less than Addison Russell, but he has all the tools. (Jim Walsh)
2016-05-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Right up your alley! Amed Rosario - should he be bumped up to AA, or think he should stick around the FSL for a while longer, since he's so young? More power in that stick to come?
(mordecofe1 from NYC)
I'd love to see him get a shot at Double-A this year. He's played 41 games in FSL this year, but with a full season in the league last year, he could be ready for a bigger challenge. We never know until they get there! (Jessica Quiroli)
2016-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know that part of what was holding you back on Rosario was the fact he had yet to be particularly good offensively - does his hot start (especially in the power dept) make you feel more comfortable in his offensive potential or does it not matter all that much since he should really be in AA (or just sss for that matter)?
(Kevin from NY)
A few Amed Rosario questions in the queue, so we will start there. The power is nice to see, and he has always had really quick wrists. He's added some mass to back it up now too. One caveat: He is repeating the level, and I know he's still one of the younger players in the league, but guys can figure out how to hit the type of pitching you see in A+ with a long enough look. Double-A will be the real test here, and it may start within a few weeks. I will add that I am a bit more comfortable with the 'breakout,' because it matches the already existant tool profile. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you a fan of Amed Rosario? What kind of ceiling does he have?
(Lastings from Queens, NY)
I'm a fan, I guess. Not his number-one fan or anything. Ceiling? He could be Alcides Escobar. I really don't think he will be, but he could be. (Matthew Trueblood)
2016-03-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a fellow mets fan, what are your thoughts on Amed Rosario? If you need another mets fan to chat about on the new BP Mets' site, let me know.
(Silverback38 from VA)
I will not get my hopes up. I will not get my hopes up. I will not get my hopes up. (I hope he is peak Erick Aybar.) (Bryan Grosnick)
2016-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have any favorite Mets prospects?
(Arnold from Oregon)
Amed Rosario and Wuilmer Bucerra (Matthew Trueblood)
2016-01-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)A little low for Amed Rosario, no? Also, I noticed no Gavin Cecchini. Little love for mets SS
(Loren from Atlanta)
if you're asking if we think that we're low on the guy we ranked in a specific spot... the answer is going to be no. Rosario doesn't scream impact to me on offense, even if that upside is there. I get the desire to assume there's a ton more there given age and level, but I don't see that coming to fruition. (Top 101 Chat with Craig Goldstein)
2015-08-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you prefer long-term Amed Rosario or Ruddy Giron ?
(Carl from Chicago)
Rosario. But a fairly substantial margin. Giron has really improved, but I just love Rosario's skillset. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-08-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on some of the most overrated fantasy prospects heading into next season?
(Shawn from Richmond )
As a general rule, the guys who are overrated as fantasy prospects are the ones for whom defense is a primary part his overall value and placement on general top 100 lists. I'm not high on Mondesi in fantasy. Amed Rosario fits that description. I'm terrified of Tim Anderson but the upside is immense. Tyler Kolek. I love Gelyber but think he'll probably end up overrated in fantasy because he won't bring power or speed. (Greg Wellemeyer)
2015-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Wilson. Are there any Low Minor players whose name is not yet widely recognized and you are looking to keep an eye on as the season concludes to possibly jump on for a name breakout next year?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Leaving out the '15 draftees, Victor Robles is probably the biggest helium guy of the year. Our Mark Anderson just tossed three 7's onto his ledger, linked below. Javier Guerra and Amed Rosario are a couple interesting shortstops. And while another one, Jorge Mateo, has gotten a lot of attention for his wheels, Rockies A-ball CFer Wes Rogers is a dude with a similar skillset & more polished hit tool. Potential SB beast. Jomar Reyes is a fan favorite of our scouting team. Amaurys Minier & Lewin Diaz in the Twins system are also both interesting raw power bats. Arms you'll be hearing a lot more about include Anderson Espinoza, Franklyn Kilome, Michael Kopech (though he's suspended), and the now-in-High-A Francis Martes (whose CB is just disgusting). (Wilson Karaman)
2015-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Yo, will Amed Rosario have any fantasy value or is he more glove than offense? Thank you
(Matt from Portland)
Definitely more glove than bat. Jeff Moore raised some pretty significant concerns about his ability to make consistent hard contact in his looks earlier in the year. Should be an MLB regular thanks to a plus defensive profile though, and depending on the depth of your league that in and of itself gives him fantasy value as a shortstop. Report: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=223 (Wilson Karaman)
2015-06-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)How big is the gap between 19 year old Jose Reyes and 19 year old Amed Rosario? What chance does Rosario have at becoming as good as Reyes? I always look for the daily updates and enjoy listening to the new pod, thanks.
(chiefs1 from Jose Jose Jose)
Reyes is far ahead of where Rosario is right now. At 19, Reyes was finishing the season in Double-A and was in the big leagues by the next year. Rosario is in High-A ball but should really be in Low-A. That's not a knock on Rosario. I actually like him a lot. Reyes was just very advanced and has/had borderline HOF talent had he been able to stay healthy. (Jeff Moore)
2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Richard Urena going to full season ball. Do you think him and Gordon could be the best low-A short stops in the minors?
(Mike from NY)
I don't have a firm read on Urena beyond that he's interesting and I plan on finding out more. I still think he's behind guys like Amed Rosario and Franklin Barreto, though Gordon definitely factors in quite highly, there. (Craig Goldstein)
2015-03-25 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jordan, who do you have as some of your favorite Low Minor, high ceiling prospects to keep an eye on for 2015, and are looking to jump on before their stock gains recognition this season, ex. Tapia last pre-season or Devers by its conclusion?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Amed Rosario, Leonardo Molina, Jorge Mateo, Francisco Mejia, Lewis Brinson, Javier Guerra, and Monte Harrison are some names that jump out. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Chris, who do you have as some of your favorite Low Minor, high ceiling prospects to keep an eye on for 2015, and are looking to hop on their train before their stock gains recognition this season, ex. Tapia last pre-season or Devers by its conclusion?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Hmm, that's a good question. The first name that pops in my mind is Amed Rosario, but maybe he's a little too famous now to qualify. I'd have to think on that one and give you a better answer in the next chat. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-02-26 20:00:00 (link to chat)Better offensive upside, Willy Adames or Amed Rosario?
(RTrydel from Baltimore)
Adames, but both have less offensive potential than conventional wisdom suggest. (Bret Sayre)
2015-02-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Peraza, Amed Rosario, Reynaldo Lopez, Steven Matz.. all things being equal, which one player is not least likely kept in a dynasty league?
(Ron from Texarkana)
Some double negatives there... I think Matz is the present value/upper minors guy and he has the highest value. Lopez a huge helium arm and Rosario has a chance to be a real premium guy. Pereza is a decent real life player, but 2B prospects... meh. Speed first profile and a lot of questions at the plate. Is his profile (particularly in fantasy) a whole lot different than say... Micah Johnson? (Al Skorupa)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)What prospect is going to have the biggest explosion up the prospect boards this year: Matt Olsen, Amed Rosario, Rafael Devers, or some other prospect altogether?
(Slick Rick from The Ruler)
Olson just left the Cal League so if anything, his status will probably take a hit when he posts more pedestrian numbers in Double-A. I think Devers has a chance to near top-50 status if he really rakes in the low minors, and at this point there’s not much reason to think he won’t. (Ben Carsley)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)Which low a prospect do you believe will make the most impact: Franchy Cordero, Amed Rosario, Rafael Devers, other of your choice?
(Rich from Maryland)
As much as I may drive the Amed Rosario bandwagon, I'll go with Devers here. His offensive tools are more developed and I think he could be primed for a larger breakout in 2015. (Mark Anderson)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Ozhaino Albies? Is he a better long-term SS prospect than, say, Amed Rosario or Raul Mondesi?
(Two74 from Florida)
Intriguing set of tools, but also an incredibly long ways off. Mondesi is light years ahead of Albies as a long-term shortstop prospect, and as a resident believer in Rosario, I'm not inclined to put Albies in his class either. (Mark Anderson)
2014-12-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)What are scouts saying about Amed Rosario?
(Cliff from NY)
Some highlights: strong potential to stick at shortstop; athletic actions; good instincts for the game; quick hands; ability to grow into some power; raw present defensive fundamentals; swing can get a little long and loose; high upside. (Top 10s Chat With Chris Mellen)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)In the 2nd Tier of SS prospects, who do you see having a better chance at becoming an above average offensive player between JP Crawford, Amed Rosario, and Tim Anderson?
(Tim from Columbia)
Crawford is the best offensive player of the bunch. Rosario is miles away from the big leagues and Anderson has some serious hurdles to overcome, as discussed above. Crawford is much more refined for his age and has fewer obstacles between him and the majors. (Jeff Moore)
2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)Mondesi or Amed Rosario ?
(Francisco from Atlanta)
Mondesi for me. (Top 101 Chat)
2015-02-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)What would you like to see Amed Rosario work on most this year? What is the most impressive part of his game? Biggest weakness?
(Harvey from Queens)
Toning things down at the plate. Or, at least showing that he's starting to make strides in that department during his full-season assignment. Rosario's feel for the game at a young age is probably the most impressive part. That's what leads me to believe he's going to learn how to slow things down on both sides of the ball. Biggest weakness would be the aforementioned aggressiveness and immature pitch recognition.

For what it is worth, one front office type (outside the org) I spoke to when putting the Mets Top 10 together expressed his thoughts that Rosario is the talent with the most upside in the system. (Top 101 Chat)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks Mark for taking questions today. Is Amed Rosario a future top 50/more prospects. I've been following him for a couple seasons but am not sure what insiders feel about him. Do you see his bat playing at the major league level?
(Mark from Canton)
I'm love Rosario. I saw him for 5-6 games in 2014 and I'm a big believe in his long term projection. I think the defensive profile stays on the left side with a strong chance of remaining at shortstop, and the offensive profile could be highly impressive. There's a chance he could hit for a high average, drive the ball with authority, and possibly develop legitimate over the fence power. He's a very real candidate to vault himself into Top 50 (or more) consideration, but that may have to wait for another 12 months or so. (Mark Anderson)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)Better offensive profile, Jorge Mateo or Amed Rosario?
(fred from here)
As I said in a prior question, Rosario's my boy. I really like the profile, even though he needs to refine the approach. (Mark Anderson)
2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)Last year at this time, the hype was about Cleveland's Francisco Mejia. Who is gonna be that guy this offseason?
(Jeff from St. Pete)
He's been talked about more than Mejia had at this same stage last year, but give me Amed Rosario....I'm a huge fan and think he's ready to take off. (Mark Anderson)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jorge Mateo or Amed Rosario on ceiling?
(tjco1006 from Up n In Rehab Center)
Mateo is still very raw. Rosario could play full season ball right now, no problem. I'm going to go with him, although Mateo has game changing speed and is one of the Yankees top 5 prospects. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best SS prospect in 2016?
(Mitch from ATL)
if I wanted to get risky I might say Amed Rosario. Safe answer is JP Crawford. (real life answers, not fantasy) (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)I know you recently saw Marcos Molina and Amed Rosario playing for the Brooklyn Cyclones. Are those two guys you see ending up in the top 5 of the Mets prospect list by season's end? And would you say both have star potential at the major league level?
(Calvin from Bronx)
I missed Molina, but I stay updated on his work. Both should be in the mix for the Mets top 5. Very strong system. I wouldn't say either player has star potential. I think they have major league potential with a chance for an impact future. Stars are rare. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario or Franklin Barreto?
(SK from Boston)
Rosario. He's going to stick at SS, whereas Barreto is a CF long term. I like both guys quite a bit, but the early reports on Rosario are excellent. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario future star in your eyes ?
(Cianna from New York)
It's far too early to say future star for a guy who is just in short-season ball, but I saw him in spring training and like the package. He moves well for a tall shortstop and i liked the swing in BP. Lets see how the hit tool plays in games though before we start anointing him. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Amed Rosario was getting a lot of press as an up and comer in the offseason. Any chance to see him lately? Thoughts on his ceiling?
(Greg from Omaha, NE)
He's in ext ST; will play in the NYPL for Brooklyn, where I will stalk the shit out of him. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you seen Amed Rosario yet? Anything to the early hype?
(Silverback38 from VA)
I've not seen him live at this point, but everything I've heard from scouts suggests the hype is very real. He has the potential for above-average goals across the board at a premium position. If he begins to put his tools together at all this year, he's going to be flying up prospect lists. (Mark Anderson)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where would Amed Rosario and Marcos Molina go in the Rule 4 draft if elligible?
(Al Harrington from Bucketsville NC)
Both would be 1st rounders and in the conversation among the better high school players in the country. I saw Rosario a few weeks ago and loved him. He's going to stick at shortstop and put together a mature round of BP. Looking forward to seeing him in some game action. (Jeff Moore)
2014-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Name a few of the higher ceiling prospects just outside the top 101.
(Uncle Jessie from Hazzard County)
Just to name a few: Jose Martinez, Francisco Mejia, Edwin Diaz, Jefry Rodriguez, Amed Rosario, Mauricio Cabrera

Catch a theme here? (Jason Parks on the Completed Prospect Rankings)
2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'll go ahead and apologize for the blatant fantasy question, but in a medium-deep keeper league looking for lottery tickets, which one of Gabriel Guerrero, Manuel Margot, Franklin Barreto, Amed Rosario, and Ronald Guzman would you want?
(Rob from Alaska)
You can't really go wrong with any of them if you're looking for lottery tickets. I've been particularly impressed with the reports on Rosario, but my eyes tell me Margot might be the guy I'd put my money on. (Mark Anderson)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)BA ranked Amed Rosario as the #1 prospect in the Appy League. What have you heard about Rosario?
(izzy2112 from New York)
There were some strong reviews from international scouts heading into the year and everything I heard from scouts covering the Appy League this year was positive. He is a very talented kid with a decent chance to stick up the middle and impact offensive potential. He is still extremely raw and comes with a massive risk profile, but Mets fans have every reason to be excited. (Mark Anderson)
