Dodgers Rumors: Reunion with Amed Rosario Not Likely This Winter

Now that the Dodgers offseason has started much earlier than anyone would have liked, the team has plenty of decisions to be made. First, they need to figure out who they want to bring back from the 2023 team, and then they can worry about other free agents.

LA was very successful during the 2023 season but fell flat when it mattered most. While there may be some players that they bring back for next season, they can’t afford to just run things back with the same roster.

One of those players that the team will need to decide on is infielder Amed Rosario. He was acquired from the Cleveland Guardians at the trade deadline for Noah Syndergaard.

He gave the team a decent right-handed bat off the bench, but his position proved to be redundant for this club. Insider J.P. Hoornstra of The Orange County Register provided some insight into Rosario’s future with LA moving forward.

Did well to learn second base on the fly and provide a right-handed bat off the bench after being acquired from Cleveland for Noah Syndergaard in July. It wouldn’t take much to make his roster spot redundant – a bounceback season by Miguel Vargas, a return to health by Gavin Lux, re-signing Hernandez – making it unlikely Rosario returns to the Dodgers.”

Per J.P. Hoornstra of The OC Register

Rosario wasn’t awful with the Dodgers, but he never produced in the way that LA had hoped. His future with the team essentially was sealed when he was left off the postseason roster, so there isn’t a good chance he will come back.

With LA, he hit .256 with 18 runs batted in over 48 games. He provided them with a nice depth piece to use down the stretch of the season, and, unfortunately, we didn’t get to see if he could give them anything in the playoffs.

He is still only 27 years old, so he will latch on with some club for next season. Assuming he isn’t back, we wish Rosario good luck wherever he continues his career!
