WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Rosado, who goes by “Hommy”, is an interesting 34th round pick.  He was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 11th round last year, but opted to attend LSU-Eunice.  Baseball America rated him as the 8th best prospect out of Louisiana for the 2011 draft.  His principal tool is his bat, including good power potential.  He played third base in college, but the Pirates announced him as a firstbaseman, which probably reflects a lack of range.  He might be tough to sign, seeing as how he didn’t sign as an 11th round pick.
