I do like Dunston Jr. enough (granted, I still think this is a touch high overall ... by 3-4 spots), but unless Rosario's injury is serious, he really should be ahead by a good notch or two.

Agree there. But I voted Dunston here, in part because without knowing anything favorable about Rosario's injury, my default is that it was serious. The game account of his injury day sounded very serious, and it was clearly arm, not an oblique or an ankle or anything like that. Maybe he never had surgery, but I'm not sure on that, and even if he didn't that doesn't mean his arm is and will be 100%.

This is a case that will be fun to see play out. If we get reports in the month upcoming that he's throwing fast and fine, and he shows up in a regular April rotation pitching regular innings with good effectiveness, those doubts will fade.

That's fair. No news could be bad.
