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. Sep 18 - 2:04 AM

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.

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.

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.
