Rangers designated INF Adam Rosales for assignment.

Rosales went through the waiver process numerous times last season and will now go through it again. He's a career .219/.287/.335 hitter over parts of six seasons but could get a look from someone due to his versatility.

Rangers and INF Adam Rosales avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $750,000 contract.

Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas passed along the contract details. Rosales, who bounced back and forth on waivers this season, was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. Assuming he doesn't go on waivers again, the 30-year-old figures to serve as a utility infielder for Texas in 2014.

Rangers claimed INF Adam Rosales off waivers from the Athletics.

This has reached total hilarity. Rosales was claimed by the Rangers on August 2, DFA'd by the Rangers on August 5, then claimed by the A's on August 8 and DFA'd by Oakland on August 10. Now he's back in Arlington, Texas to serve as a utilityman for the Rangers.

Athletics claimed INF Adam Rosales off waivers from the Rangers.

Rangers claimed INF Adam Rosales off waivers from the Athletics.

Rosales, a fan favorite in Oakland, was sent packing by the A's after batting just .193 with four homers and a .587 OPS over 50 games this year. Texas will need to make a corresponding move to make room for Rosales on the 25-man roster. One possibility is demoting Jurickson Profar to Triple-A until September 1. Rosales will serve as a utility man in Texas.

Athletics purchased the contract of INF Adam Rosales from Triple-A Sacramento.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move. Rosales is batting .200/.273/.331 in 147 plate appearances with the A's this season and is unlikely to be fantasy relevant.
Wed, Jul 24, 2013 11:34:00 AM

The Athletics will call up Adam Rosales from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

Rosales will replace Grant Green, who was demoted after Tuesday's game. The 30-year-old batted just .200/.273/.331 in 147 plate appearances before being designated for assignment earlier this month, so the A's will have to make a move in order to add him to the 40-man roster.

Athletics sent INF Adam Rosales outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Rosales cleared waivers after being designated for assignment earlier this week. The A's will be happy to keep the 30-year-old around as infield depth.

Athletics designated INF Adam Rosales for assignment.

Rosales was batting just .200/.273/.331 in 147 plate appearances with the Athletics this season. The 30-year-old utilityman was given the boot to clear a roster spot for the arrival of top infield prospect Grant Green.

Adam Rosales hit a go-ahead homer off James Shields in the eighth in Oakland's 2-1 defeat of Kansas City on Friday.

The A's had been going with Eric Sogard against righties and Rosales against lefties, but Rosales drew the assignment against Shields tonight and came through with the big blast. As poorly as Sogard has hit, the A's will probably go with Rosales regularly for now.

Adam Rosales went 2-for-5 with a leadoff homer in Friday's win over the Yankees.

In fact, Rosales took CC Sabathia deep on the very first pitch of the ballgame. Not bad for someone who was starting out of the leadoff spot for the first time in his career. The 29-year-old is now hitting .333 (9-for-27) since coming off the disabled list and could be playing himself into a more prominent role.
