    Originally from the Dominican Republic, Rosario transferred to the P27 Academy in Lexington, S.C. for the 2023 season. That’s the same program that produced Dodgers sixth-round righthander Logan Wagner in 2022. Rosario is a 6-foot-2, 215-pound righthanded hitter with plenty of physicality and tools, including one of the best arms in the class. He registered an outfield throw of 101 mph at Perfect Game’s National Showcase in 2022, and also has solid running ability and big raw power. That raw power comes with an offensive approach and swing that needs to be refined and simplified, as Rosario features plenty of moving parts with both his hands and a large leg kick. He does have good bat speed and twitchy hands, but he’s often overly pull-happy and will aggressively expand the zone and swing-and-miss with enough frequency to raise questions about the overall quality of his hit tool. Rosario has exciting upside, but might be better off proving his hitting chops with Chipola (Fla.) JC next year, and he could be an interesting option for the re-implemented draft-and-follow system because of that.
