Rangers talking with the Rockies about Wilin Rosario

5 Comments

According to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post, the Rangers continue to talk to the Rockies about a trade for Wilin Rosario.

We heard last week that the Rockies were “trying to move” Rosario, who is a poor defensive catcher and slipped to a .739 OPS (93 OPS+) this past season. However, he would make a lot of sense for some American League teams, where he could slot in at the designated hitter spot. As Saunders notes, the Rangers are in need of a right-handed bat.

Rosario turns 25 in February and is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. MLB Trade Rumors projects that he’ll make around $3.6 million in 2015.
