Mets rookie SS Amed Rosario is heating up as he spends his second month in the majors.
Rosario, 21, is hitting .256/.287/.427 with four HR, two doubles, three triples, and 8 RBI in 117 at-bats since making his big league debut last month.
In September, Rosario -- who missed roughly a week recently due to a finger injury -- is hitting .353/.421/.412.
One area where Rosario needs to improve is his two-strike approach, especially when it comes to chasing pitches that are off the plate away.
"He needs to choke up, be able to put that ball in play the other way, and use his speed," SNY's Nelson Figueroa explained.
According to Figueroa and SNY's Jim Duquette, Rosario has sparkled at times defensively and has improved with the limited experience he's had so far in the majors, but still needs to refine his game as far as knowing the speed of the runners and making all routine plays look routine.
