Amed Rosario made his debut in August with the Mets and showed early signs of what to expect next year and beyond
August 1, 2017: The much-anticipated debut of Amed Rosario in a Mets uniform. It happened in Colorado and resulted in a 1-for-4 night in a 5-4 loss. However, it marked the beginning of an MLB career for a shortstop who blitzed his way through the ranks and made the big leagues at age 21.
Prior to that, Rosario was dominating in AAA Las Vegas. Mets fans knew it was only a matter of when Rosario would get the call. It happened as the non-waiver trade deadline and from then on, we saw Rosario in 46 games. This followed a minor league career that saw him slash .291/.336/.405.
He earned several accolades in his minor league career. He was named to two Futures Games (2016 and ’17), was a mid-season all-star three times, and earned Pacific Coast League Rookie of the Year last season.
So many were hyped for the debut of Rosario in what was an otherwise lost season. So what’s ahead for Amed? First, here’s a look back at his two-month stint in the majors.
