Adam Rosales has a secret.  Or, he did.

The A’s utilityman informed Jane Lee of MLB.com on Thursday that he underwent surgery on his right foot on December 8 and will need another two or three months to get back to 100 percent health.

In other words, Rosales is not going to be ready when spring training begins and is likely to open the 2011 season on the disabled list.

He is aiming to begin playing in live spring games on March 15, but he’ll only meet that goal if he avoids setbacks and that still leaves him with just two weeks to prepare for the start of the 2011 season.  The 27-year-old will probably be asked to take some reps at Triple-A Sacramento before joining the A’s around mid-April.

Rosales hit .271/.321/.400 with seven homers and 31 RBI over 255 at-bats last season.  He is expected to serve as a utilityman for Oakland in 2011 once he is fully rehabbed.
