Rosario, 22, hit nine home runs while driving in 51 runs and hitting .256 in 154 games for the Mets in 2018. The first half of the season paled in comparison to what the kid did later in the season.
His strong second half (alongside double-play partner Jeff McNeil) provided great hope for the middle of the organization’s infield.
The remaining Japan All-Star Series is as follows:
• Saturday: 4:30 a.m. ET
• Sunday: 5 a.m. ET
• Tuesday: 4:30 a.m. ET
• Nov. 14: 5 a.m. ET
• Nov. 15: 4 a.m. ET
