Rosario went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's 5-3 extra-inning win over the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Hitting ninth behind the pitcher's slot once again, Rosario showed some extra-base power, collecting his fourth and fifth doubles of the season. The 22-year-old is still looking for his first homer or steal of the year, but his mediocre .250/.297/.367 slash line does come accompanied by eight RBI and 10 runs through 18 games.

Rosario went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Monday's 4-2 win over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The young shortstop continues to enjoy a solid start at the plate despite hitting ninth in the order, slashing .296/.321/.407 through eight games with six RBI and four runs. Rosario's still looking for his first steal of the year, and his 1:12 BB:K in 29 plate appearances suggests some rough times ahead for his batting average, but the 22-year-old's upside remains sky high even if it takes him a couple of seasons to blossom as a hitter.

Rosario is out of the lineup Thursday against the Nationals, Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a 5-for-15 mark at the plate and five RBI on the season, Rosario has thus far proven worthy of a regular role, but he'll nonetheless find himself on the bench for the second time in three games as Mets manager Mickey Callaway gives Jose Reyes another whirl at shortstop. The lineup choice doesn't appear to be a result of any dissatisfaction with Rosario's performance to date, but rather an attempt to keep Reyes sharp as the veteran prepares for a utility gig in 2018 after playing on a near-everyday basis a season ago. It's thus expected that Rosario will still be in store for the overwhelming share of starts at shortstop, though his likely assignment as the No. 9 hitter in most games will limit his run-scoring and stolen-base opportunities more than some may have expected heading into the season.

Rosario went 2-for-3 with a triple and two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

He was also caught stealing, but 22-year-olds are bound to make the occasional mistake. Rosario is off to a quick start to the season, going 5-for-15 with five RBI in five games, but hitting ninth on a regular basis won't allow him to maintain that run production pace for much longer.

Rosario is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rosario will head to the bench for the first time all season after starting the Mets' first three games and going 3-for-11 (.273) with three RBI and two runs scored. In his place, Jose Reyes will pick up the start at shortstop, hitting eighth.

Rosario went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI in Thursday's 9-4 win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Hitting ninth behind the pitcher's spot, the young shortstop was able to deliver solid fantasy value thanks to the Mets' productivity up and down the lineup. Rosario likely won't produce eye-popping fantasy numbers this season, but if he can continue producing when he gets his chances, the 22-year-old could work his way up into a better spot in the lineup in the second half.

Rosario will hit ninth, with pitcher Noah Syndergaard hitting eighth, in the Mets' Opening Day lineup, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

This actually counts as a bit of good news for the young shortstop's fantasy value, as hitting in front of Brandon Nimmo -- and, eventually, Michael Conforto (shoulder) -- should allow Rosario to see better pitches and give him more opportunities to use his speed. The 22-year-old didn't produce much offense in his big-league debut last season, but his .328/.367/.466 slash line with seven homers and 19 steals in 94 games for Triple-A Las Vegas in 2017 gives a glimpse of his upside.

Rosario went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

His fourth-inning two-bagger was the only hit the Mets scrounged up against a dominant Max Scherzer, while Rosario's deep shot to left field in the eighth was his first homer of the spring. Injuries have cost the 22-year-old some time this spring, but he appears to be rounding into form in plenty of time for Opening Day.

Rosario hit ninth in Sunday's Grapefruit League game and is expected to begin the season slotted in at the bottom of the Mets' batting order, Kevin Kernan of The New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's a small chance the young shortstop could see some work in the leadoff spot early in the season while Michael Conforto (shoulder) is on the DL, but manager Mickey Callaway is intent on loading some OBP at the top of his batting order, and at this stage of Rosario's career that's not part of his offensive profile -- he drew a walk in only 1.8 percent of his 170 plate appearances during his big-league debut last season. Hitting ahead of the pitcher in the No. 8 spot won't help Rosario's fantasy value, but the 22-year-old has the raw talent to work his way higher in the lineup with a strong start to 2018.

Rosario went 1-for-2 with a leadoff double in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

He also looked good in the field, and Rosario's groin issue appears to be behind him. The 22-year-old will begin the season as the Mets' starting shortstop, and while his primary fantasy contribution will likely come via the stolen base, he's capable of better than the .248/.271/.394 slash line he posted in 46 major-league games last year.
