Sandy Rosario (born August 22, 1985) is a Dominican professional baseball pitcher who is a free agent. He has played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Florida/Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants.
Rosario signed as an international free agent with the then-Florida Marlins in 2004.
He was called up to the Majors for the first time on September 19, 2010, after winning the Southern League championship with the Jacksonville Suns. In his MLB debut on September 23, 2010 against the Milwaukee Brewers, Rosario's first and third pitches thrown were hit as home runs.
The Marlins again promoted Rosario in September 2011. He made four relief appearances, yielding one run over 3 2/3 innings, striking out two and walking two.
Rosario started the 2012 season at the Marlins' Triple-A affiliate New Orleans Zephyrs and later pitched in four games for Miami, yielding six runs in three innings over four relief appearances. He was sent back down to the minors. After not receiving a September callup, Rosario was claimed by the Boston Red Sox on waivers on October 17, 2012. On November 20, Rosario was designated for assignment along with 4 others. On November 28, 2012, he was traded to the Oakland Athletics.
He was claimed off waivers by the Boston Red Sox on December 10, 2012, and then again by the Chicago Cubs on December 12. On December 20, he was claimed off waivers yet again, this time by the San Francisco Giants.
Rosario became a free agent on December 2, 2013 after being non-tendered by the Giants. He was re-signed later that month.
