Certainly the Twins outfielder -- playing right field for Puerto Rico rather than his accustomed left field -- is hitting a ton so far (6-for-11 with two doubles and a triple). It's worth noting, however, that most of Puerto Rico's games have been played at altitude.
Rosario is 25, and maybe he's ready to take the next step.
I am truly enjoying a series of videos the Twins have been posting this week, "the Escobar Name Game," in which Eduardo Escobar attempts to identify his teammates. This is Wednesday's, the position players segment, which isn't quite as funny as the pitchers (posted Tuesday):

Speaking of which:
Brian Murphy of the Pioneer Press wrote about Glen Perkins.
The good news: He is throwing without pain.
The less good news: He is nowhere near major league velocity. Not yet, at least, and perhaps not ever.
Bottom line: He's destined to open 2017 on the disabled list.
