Rangers re-signed INF Adam Rosales to a one-year, $900,000 contract.
If Rougned Odor is set begin the season as starter, Rosales' signing ultimately allows the Rangers to send Luis Sardinas and Jurickson Profar to the minors for more seasoning. It also might end Ed Lucas' chance of making the team. Rosales, 31, hit .262 with .706 OPS in a smattering of 2014 at-bats. He'll once again back up each infield position. Jan 5 - 5:54 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rangers have re-signed Adam Rosales to a one-year, $900,000 deal.

Texas non-tendered Rosales in December, but a reunion was inevitable after Rosales found a cold market and Texas couldn't find suitable infield depth. That last issue was pressing, as the Rangers are currently projected to go with 20-year-old Rougned Odor at second, with 21-year-old Luis Sardinas behind him. The 31-year-old Rosales, who will resume utility duties, batted .262 with four homers and a .706 OPS across 56 games last season.

Jeff Wilson of the Fort-Worth Star Telegram writes that the Rangers are optimistic about re-signing Adam Rosales.

Rosales was non-tendered by the Rangers in December, but they still hope to bring him back for a lesser salary. The 31-year-old batted .262 with four home runs and a .706 OPS over 56 games this season and would function as a utility infielder if he returns.

Rangers non-tendered INF Adam Rosales.

He had been slated for his final year of arbitration. Rosales holds value because he can play everywhere, which means he'll catch on somewhere. Still, he's just a .226/.294/.342 career hitter.

Adam Rosales went 3-for-4 with a steal in Wednesday's 6-1 win against the A's.

He's 6-for-12 (.500) with two walks over his last three games, the past two of which have come against his former team. Which must be sweet. You might recall last year's Rosales transaction shenanigans between these two clubs. If not, here's your primer: The A's DFA'd him on Deadline Day, the Rangers claimed him on August 2, they DFA'd him on August 5, the A's claimed him back on August 8 and DFA'd him on August 10. The Rangers got him back for good on yet another claim two days later. Rosales has surprisingly turned into a productive AL-only player as the season winds down. He's now slashing .297/.371/.445 across 46 games.

Adam Rosales slugged two homers Wednesday in the Rangers' 3-1 victory over the White Sox.

Rosales provided all the offense that Texas needed with a two-run second-inning shot and a seventh-inning solo blast. The 31-year-old has been effective in limited action since being added to the major league roster in late June, boasting a .324 batting average and 1.028 OPS in 17 games. But that high rate of production probably wouldn't continue if he were to be offered regular playing time.

Adam Rosales belted his first home run of the season as the Rangers fell to the Athletics 9-3 on Sunday.

Rosales got the Rangers on the board in the second inning by taking a Scott Kazmir offering over the wall in left field for a two-run homer. He finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting .250/.333/.417 with five RBI in his first 24 at-bats on the year.

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.
