Amed Rosario was born November 20, 1995, in Santo Domingo, Distrito Nacional, Dominican Republic. He is a shortstop in the MLB.
Rosario signed with the New York Mets as an international free agent in July 2012. It was the largest international signing bonus given by the Mets. Rosario made his professional debut in 2013 with the Kingsport Mets. He started 2014 with the Brooklyn Cyclones and was promoted to the Savannah Sand Gnats in September. Rosario was promoted to the Binghamton Mets on June 23, 2016. He was named to the 2016 MLB All Star Futures Game and went 1-for-2 in the game. Rosario ended 2016 with a .324 batting average, 5 home runs, and 71 RBIs.
The Mets added Rosario to their 40-man roster after the 2016 season. Rosario made his MLB debut on August 1, 2017 against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. In that game, Rosario recorded his first career Major League hit off of Scott Oberg. On August 11, 2017, Rosario hit his first career Major League home run off of Héctor Neris. He had his first career multi-home run game on May 20, 2018, hitting two home runs against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
On January 7, 2021, the Mets traded Rosario, Andrés Giménez, Josh Wolf, and Isaiah Greene to the Cleveland Indians for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco. In March 2021, the Indians began transitioning Rosario into a role as an outfielder with the help of coach Kyle Hudson, implicitly giving the starting shortstop job to Giménez. During Rosario's first three innings in the outfield during a spring training game, he committed three errors which led to eight unearned runs being scored. Rosario's only prior experience in the outfield was three innings spent in left field with the Mets in 2019. Giménez was demoted to the minors on May 18. Around that same time, Rosario became the team's regular starting shortstop. On August 31 against the Kansas City Royals, Rosario went 5-for-5 with a career-high 5 RBIs. It included two home runs, one being the first inside-the-park home run in his career. Rosario finished the 2021 season batting .282/.321/.409 with 11 home runs, 57 RBIs, 77 runs and 13 stolen bases in 141 games.
In 2022 he led the major leagues with nine triples, and had the lowest walk percentage among major league batters (3.7%), while batting .283/.312/.403 with 86 runs, 11 home runs, and 18 steals in 22 attempts. He led the major leagues in infield hits, with 35.
