October 2023 Update (End of Season)
A breakthrough year in High-A ball saw Kala'i Rosario fill up the stat sheet with 27 doubles, 21 homers, 94 RBIs and 75 walks in 118 games for the Midwest League champion Kernels. He was named the Midwest League MVP. Taken at the end of a shortened, five-round draft in 2020, Rosario has developed a little slowly, but at age 20, he looked like a prototypical right fielder. It's worth noting that Rosario cooled down significantly in the second half and Arizona Fall League, so the key will be recapturing his juice from the first half.
July 2023 Update
Like many before him, Kala'i Rosario escaped the offense-suppressing conditions of the Florida State League and saw his production elevate along with the line drives. Rosario's 12 home runs through the first three months at Cedar Rapids matched his full-season total last year at Ft. Myers, and his OPS is up by more than 100 points. The Twins have always liked the 21-year-old right fielder's RH swing, and now he's flashing some real patience. Given his profile, Rosario will need to keep sustaining and growing at the plate in order to be a major-leaguer.
