Rosales claimed by Rangers again

The Sports Xchange

Infielder Adam Rosales is probably having trouble figuring out whether his loyalties should lie with the Texas Rangers or Oakland A's.

He continued to get bounced between the two American League West leaders when the Rangers claimed him off waivers again on Monday.

Over the past 10 days, Rosales has gone from the A's to the Rangers, back to the A's and back the Rangers again.

In that span, Rosales, 30, has been designated for assignment three times and claimed off waivers three times.

This is all for a utility player who is hitting .191 this season. His only playing time in that 10-day span came on Aug. 9 for the A's, when he went 0-for-1 at the plate.

Here is the rundown on what has happened to Rosales:

Oakland designated Rosales for assignment on July 31 to make room for newly acquired third baseman Alberto Callaspo.

The Rangers claimed Rosales on Aug. 2, but he did not see any action for the Rangers, and was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Aug. 5.

Oakland then claimed him on Aug. 8, but designated him for assignment a second time on Aug. 10.

Texas claimed Rosales for a second time Monday.

He is expected to rejoin the Rangers on Tuesday.
