AUG. 22: After clearing waivers, Rosales declined his outright assignment to Triple-A, tweets Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He will be released as a result.
AUG. 19: The Rangers have designated infielder Adam Rosales for assignment, the club announced. He’ll be replaced on the active roster by Hanser Alberto. Texas needed a 40-man spot for the activation of Derek Holland.
Rosales, 32, owns a .228/.296/.342 slash over 125 plate appearances on the season. The light-hitting utilityman has filled in all over the diamond, but has logged most of his innings at second. Interestingly, Rosales’s batting line this season is a near-perfect match for the .227/.294/.342 slash that he has compiled over parts of eight big league campaigns.
