Rosario is hoping to come back to the MLB after spending a season in the Korean Baseball Organization, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rosario raked during his time across the ocean, bashing 33 home runs and driving in 120 runs. Even though the KBO is well-known for being a hitter-friendly league, the 27-year-old could pose as an intriguing option for any team looking for a right-handed power bat, even if his defensive skills likely will limit him to first base.

Rosario will become a free agent after declining his outright assignment to Triple-A, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 defense 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.

Rosario was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Friday, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Rosario went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored in a loss to Arizona on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Rosario has really fallen out of favor in Denver, but he's always been able to hit. He got the start today because he is batting well over .300 against lefties with an OPS just shy of 1.000 over his last three seasons. If he 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.

Rosario hit a solo homer as part of a 2-for-3 effort in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Rosario was filling in at first base for Justin Morneau, who took a seat with lefty J.A. Happ on the mound for the Pirates. Look for the Rockies to continue to deploy a platoon at first base the rest of the season, though Rosario stands to see the shorter end of the timeshare.

Rosario singled twice and drove in two runs during Thursday's 11-3 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Rosario surprisingly picked up the start at first base with a right-hander in Ryan Vogelsong on the mound, but he acquitted himself well while manning the eighth spot in the batting order. The Rockies' decision to move Rosario to first base has largely been a failed experiment, as the former catcher has been rough defensively while seeing his power decline to career-low levels. Playing time may only grow scarcer for Rosario with Justin Morneau (concussion/neck) poised to return soon, and it wouldn't be surprising if the Rockies elected to cut ties with him entirely during the offseason.

Rosario was recalled from Triple-A on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Rosario saw very limited action after the All-Star break, and he was optioned back to Triple-A at the end of July. The 26-year-old has fared well in Albuquerque, hitting .297 in 38 games, but he won't have a clear path to consistent playing time at the big league level.

Rosario is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Rosario had started back-to-back games at first base, going 1-for-7 with three strikeouts over that span. He'll give way to Ben Paulsen on Sunday, as the two continue to battle for reps in the absence of Justin Morneau (concussion).

Rosario went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run double in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Rosario received the start at first base over Ben Paulsen even with the right-handed Chase Anderson on the mound for the Diamondbacks, and the lineup decision paid off immediately when he sparked a three-run first inning with the double. The Rockies weren't able to score Rosario when he led off the top of the 10th inning with a walk, but the loss nor the team's recent offensive struggles don't fall on his shoulders. Rosario has been one of the more productive hitters through eight games of the Rockies' 10-game road trip, going 7-for-22 with two doubles, three RBI, and two walks.
