Adam Rosales cleared waivers last month the first time the A’s sent him down but he was picked up this time with the Rangers choosing to add him to their infield.

The 30-year-old Rosales was hitting .193/.268/.319 over 135 at-bats in his two stints with the A’s this season. He’s a lifetime .220/.289/.334 hitter with 19 homers in 809 at-bats. Rosales is best known for his home run sprints around the bases amid various other forms of hustle. He has the three fastest home runs of the season all under 16.5 seconds. The A’s had cut him to make room for the newly acquired Alberto Callaspo on the roster.
