Minor League Prospect Notes: Eddie Rosario, Leon Landry
**Minnesota Twins prospect Eddie Rosario missed several weeks of play after being hit in the face during batting practice in early July. He returned to the field for Low-A Beloit on July 31st. If anyone was worried about the injury impacting Rosario negatively, put those worries aside: since returning to the field, Rosario is 11-for-20 (.550) with five doubles, a triple, and three walks. His worst game since returning was on August 2nd when he went 2-for-5 with a double.
Overall, including 66 games for Beloit and five games of rookie ball rehab, Rosario is hitting .317/.376/.511 with 26 doubles, eight homers, 28 walks, and 42 strikeouts in 278 at-bats. He has some rough edges at second base but shows enough athleticism for the position and I think he can stick there.
**Acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Brandon League trade, Seattle Mariners outfield prospect Leon Landry hit for the cycle in his third game for the High Desert Mavericks of the High-A California League last night, going 4-for-5 with three runs scored and four RBI. He's 6-for-14 since the trade with two homers, and holds an overall line of .331/.362/.579 on the season, with 27 doubles, 16 triples, 10 homers, and 22 steals.
