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.”
