Former Met top prospect Amed Rosario has his days numbered in Cleveland

Amed Rosario was once a top prospect in the New York Mets organization. For the year of his debut, 2017, Rosario was positioned as the number one prospect of the Mets according to the MLB Pipeline ranking.

With the Mets organization, Rosario did not live up to expectations. During his four years in Queens, Rosario only achieved a league-average production of 100 wRC+ in 2019.

Since he arrived in Cleveland, Amed Rosario has played multiple positions, especially in OF and SS. His offensive numbers have improved compared to those shown in Queens, although even his hitting profile continues to show deficiencies in his ability to get on base.

The Guardians have entertained the idea of ​​trading Rosario in the past, but this year is the right time. Amed is in the last year of his contract, and Cleveland has, in the figure of Brayan Rocchio the immediate replacement for Rosario.

The shortstop position is always in high demand, and some teams find themselves in need of this position. The Pittsburgh Pirates need a shortstop, although his ability to stay in the competition is questionable. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Angels may be another team needing a veteran shortstop, although they do have rookie Zach Neto at the position.

The team where Amed Rosario will end up will be the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers need a shortstop since Gavin Lux's injury and have a farm system full of options that will interest the Guardians and where they can reach an agreement.
