PEORIA, Ariz. -- Rockies catching prospect Wilin Rosario said the rehabilitation on his surgically repaired right knee is going well, and he hopes to play at full speed the first week of April.
"I can't wait to get into a game," Rosario, 22, said. "Right now, [I'm] focused on the recuperation and performing well this season. My goal is to work hard and get to the big leagues. It's the same dream every Minor League player has."
Rosario, who hit .285 with a career-high 19 home runs and 52 RBIs for Double-A Tulsa last season, is on track for a return to the Minor Leagues, at least to start the season, and it appears Colorado is taking a cautious approach with its top catching prospect.
