Adam Rosales has elected free agency.

Rosales was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock after clearing waivers but refused his minor league assignment. He played a utility role for Texas, starting games at left field, first base, second base and third. The 32-year-old is a .227 career hitter across 430 major league appearances.

Rangers designated INF Adam Rosales for assignment.

Rosales has hit only .228/.296/.342 across 55 contests with the Rangers this season. Hanser Alberto is taking his spot on the roster.

Adam Rosales went 4-for-4 with four singles in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

As a team, the Rangers racked up 13 hits, and Rosales did his part with four singles. He also scored two runs in the 8-0 win. With just 69 at-bats, any big hitting game tends to move Rosales' batting line significantly. He's now hitting .246/.307/.391 with three homers and seven RBI. Despite the perfect game, he'll need consistent at-bats before he can be relied upon in deeper AL-only formats.

Adam Rosales blasted a two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Rangers to a 5-2 victory over the Yankees in New York.

It was the second straight start that Rosales has made at second base and he made the most of it, going 2-for-3 plus a walk, though he was caught stealing. Though he's hitting just .214/.279/.375 on the season, he could be interesting in AL-only formats if he's indeed seeing the bulk of playing time at second base.

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.

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 purchased the contract of INF Adam Rosales from Triple-A Round Rock.

Rosales has posted a decent .276/.349/.434 batting line with seven home runs and 43 RBI in 72 games this season at the Triple-A level. He'll act as a utility infielder.
Mon, Jun 30, 2014 02:59:00 PM

Rangers sent INF Adam Rosales outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

Rosales was designated for assignment by the Rangers on March 30 and passed through waivers unclaimed. He'll function as organizational infield depth for Texas.

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.
