10 Comments

MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo reports that the Mets will call up shortstop Amed Rosario from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday. The Mets will open a series at Coors Field in Colorado.

Rosario, 21, is the Mets’ No. 1 prospect and No. 2 overall in baseball, according to MLB Pipeline. There has been a lot of hype around his promotion, particularly since Asdrubal Cabrera suffered a thumb injury earlier this season. The Mets have used Cabrera as well as an unproductive Jose Reyes at shortstop.

With Las Vegas, Rosario hit .328/.367/.466 with seven home runs, 58 RBI, 66 runs scored, and 19 stolen bases in 425 plate appearances.
