Amed Rosario could be answer to Mets’ outfield problem

There is also an opening at 1B, 2B, 3B, C, in the bullpen, the starting rotation, and, if they move Rosario to CF, at SS.

How the Mets can save Amed Rosario

Although he’s eating up service time on the Mets, sending him down won’t necessarily fix his problems. Watching him this season, he’s shown glimpses of figuring it out. As long as it’s not a confidence problem, and it doesn’t appear that it is, let him keep working against the best competition in the world and see how it plays out. He’s proven he can handle the minors. Remember, player development is not linear. Sometimes a team just needs to be patient.

Amed Rosario hopes to steal some knowledge from Jose Reyes on being more aggressive on the bases | Newsday

Yes, please.

This year, Rosario said his plan is to be “100 percent” aggressive on the bases.

“If God provides me with health, I’ll be able to steal a lot of bases,” he said through an interpreter.

Count manager Mickey Callaway among the believers in that possibility. But base-stealing is a skill that takes time to develop, just like hitting and fielding.

“Base-stealing is something that is an art and it takes time to build, unless you’re just clearly outrunning the baseball,” Callaway said. “Baserunning takes great leads, a lot of instinct, a lot of research on what the pitcher’s doing and what he’s not doing.

“He can be a huge threat. He’s obviously one of the faster guys, footspeed-wise, in the big leagues. So if he can really hone in on his skills to really steal bases and get better and better at it, he can be a perennial base-stealer if he wants.”

Said Rosario of Callaway’s vote of confidence: “It’s very important to me. That encourages me to go and steal a lot of bases.”
