Rangers sign INF Rosales to $750K, 1-year deal

The Texas Rangers have agreed to a $750,000, one-year contract
with utility infielder Adam Rosales.

Rosales was eligible for salary arbitration before the deal
announced Thursday.

The Rangers also signed left-hander Aaron Poreda and outfielder
Brad Snyder to minor league contracts with invitations to major
league spring training.

Rosales is a .219 career hitter in 319 major league games with
Cincinnati (2008-09), Oakland (2010-13) and Texas (2013). He has
started at all four infield positions, and also played left
field.

During a two-week span in August, Rosales was sent back and
forth between the Rangers and Oakland. The A’s designated him for
assignment twice in that span, and he was claimed both times by
Texas, which also moved him off its roster once before getting him
back for good.
