Three Guardians batters who need to get it together
3 of 4
2. Amed Rosario
The most divisive player on this list and on Guardians twitter, Amed Rosario. The Guardians shortstop has struck out 13 times in 11 games while only tallying 10 hits. While Rosario is never going to be an elite offensive shortstop, the .282/.316/.406 slash line over his first two years in Cleveland is significantly better than his current .204/.259/.224.
History shows that there will be a correction in this area and that is desperately needed as Rosario's 49 at-bats this year lead all of baseball. Cleveland is going to need a lot more production out of someone who gets to the plate this often and bats second in the order. If not, perhaps dropping Rosario down in the order or a much larger transactional move may be in the future.
