Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 45 | Run: 55 | Arm: 50 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

Rosario was viewed by scouts as one of the best athletes in the 2016 international class, and he's done nothing to prove those scouts wrong. That athleticism, along with his promising bat and feel for the game, led the Padres to sign Rosario for $1.85 million. During his 2017 professional debut in the Rookie-level Arizona League, he finished with a .299 average and a .404 on-base percentage, the latter a product of him walking (33) nearly as often as he struck out (36). His impressive debut earned him a promotion to the Class A Midwest League as an 18-year-old in 2018. He didn't disappoint, notching a .368 on-base percentage while showcasing an incredibly advanced plate approach for his age.

Rosario has natural hitting ability thanks to a combination of bat speed, barrel control and hand-eye coordination. He has quick hands and makes lot of hard contact from the left side of the plate, and he could grow into average power. Rosario's above-average speed enables him to cover ground with graceful strides in the outfield, and club officials are optimistic about his chances of remaining in center field.

Rosario still needs time to develop in the Minors, mostly to fill out his lean and athletic frame. But the finished product could be that of a big league regular, with the athletic capabilities to do dazzling things on the baseball field - including his trademark back flips to celebrate victories.
