Adonis Rosa (Robert M. Pimpsner)


RHP Rosa To Be Promoted to the Big League

Yankees right-handed pitching prospect Adonis Rosa will be getting the call up to the big leagues according to a friend of his.  The right-hander is currently #78 in our Yankees 2019 mid-season top 100 prospects rankings.

Rosa, 24, has worked as a reliever and as a starter during the 2019 season, having appeared in 21 games between Double-A and Triple-A this season.  In 87 1/3 innings pitched this year he has struck out 76 batters and pitched to a 7-1 record with a 4.02 ERA.

As a relief pitcher, Rosa owns a 2-0 record with a 4.71 ERA and 17 strikeouts over 21 innings pitched with the RailRiders. In the rotation, he is 2-0 with a 2.31 ERA in 23 1/3 innings and has 22 strikeouts.

During his time with the Thunder this season he pitched better in relief, earning a 2-0 record with a 2.91 ERA over seven games, striking out 20 batters in 21 2/3 innings.  As a starter with Trenton, he owns a 1-1 record with a 6.33 ERA and 21 1/3 innings pitched over five games with 17 strikeouts.

Nine of Rosa’s 21 appearances were five or more innings with five of them being at-least 90-pitches thrown.

Unlike many of the pitchers in the Yankees system, he does not throw 98 miles per hour. He relies heavily on his plus command of four pitches and competitiveness that matches up with anyone in the system.

His fastball usually sits 91-93 miles per hour, occasionally getting it up to 94 at times.  He follows it up with an average curveball and slider as well as a changeup.
