Padres Top Prospect Undergoes Surgery; Out Multiple Months

Tough news.

San Diego Padres top prospect Eguy Rosario is expected to miss multiple months after undergoing surgery to repair a broken ankle.

Rosario suffered the injury during Winter Ball and ultimately needed surgery.

It's a tough break for the youngster, who had a good shot of making the Padres' Opening Day roster as a utility player.

The twenty-three-year-old made his major-league debut last season, playing seven games for the Padres.

He spent the bulk of the 2022 season with Triple-A El Paso, slashing a solid .288/.368/.508, with 22 home runs, 81 RBIs, 21 stolen bases and 98 runs scored over 124 games played.

Rosario is the Padres' fifth-ranked prospect. He should be ready to return sometime this summer.
