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.
