Eddie Rosario proves his worth in the largest showcase

Personally, the guayamés gardener Eddie rosario It came on at the right time of the season, when miles count, when all the CEOs of organizations are watching.

Rosario is a free agent at the end of the current season and the MVP postseason he registers with the Braves will place him as a sought-after player in the market.

He knows where he is and where he wants to go: towards money.

“I came to this series wanting to make my name known, show my talent and prove the type of player that I am. I think I had a level of success in Minnesota, and I know I didn’t do that well in Cleveland, so when I got to Atlanta I made it a point to show my talents appropriately, “Rosario told abcnews.go.

Rosario’s current contract is for $ 8 million. It only represented a $ 250,000 increase to his salary last year with the Minnesota Twins, who released him fearing they would have to pay him over $ 10 million if they lost an arbitration case. Ironically, in free agency what he did get was a minimal raise by signing with Cleveland.

Collectively, Rosario also aspires to go with the Braves to the World Series. It would be his first as a player and the organization’s first since 1999. Rosario has said his focus is on helping the team.

He is already a candidate for MVP of the Championship Series, a practical recognition for player agents in negotiations with teams.

At the same time, he became the first major league player to hit two home runs and a triple in a single postseason game. He is also only the second in history to have two four-singles games in a postseason; the other is Hall of Famer Robin Yount with the Milwaukee Brewers.

He’s hitting .467 in 30 at-bats in the postseason, with two home runs, eight RBIs and seven runs scored. Much of that performance has been achieved against the defending champion Los Angeles Dodgers, against whom he is batting .588. Twice he has been the hero or spark of the Braves against the Dodgers.

Has 30 years.

On Wednesday he confirmed how hot he is playing at the right time. He opened the score 1-0 with a home run down the left off left-hander Julio Urías in the second inning and buried the Dodgers in the ninth with a home run down the right off right-hander Tony Gonsolin.

In between home runs, Rosario also hit a triple that scored the Braves’ fourth run and hit a single, which put him within a double of becoming only the second player in history to hit for the postseason cycle. The first was Brock Holt, with the Boston Red Sox in 2018.
