The Rangers and Adam Rosales avoid arbitration, sign a one-year, $750K deal

Well, the headline kind of says it all, but:

 

I’d like to think that this represents some stability in Rosales’ life after a year in which he was passed around like a bowl of mashed potatoes on Sunday dinner. As a reminder, this was Rosales’ 2013:

  • He was with the Athletics until August;
  • The Athletics DFA’d him and he was claimed by the Rangers;
  • He joined the Rangers, got his uniform, learned their signs and then was promptly DFA’d three days later.
  • He was claimed by the Athletics, flew to Toronto and joined his team as it prepared to face the Blue Jays.
  • The very next day the Athletics once again DFA’d him. And then;
  • The Rangers claimed him again.

Nick Punto is in Oakland now, so maybe Billy Beane will stop toying with Rosales. Maybe not. Either way: he knows that he’s gonna make $750K next year, no matter where his travels take him.

    Punto must have compromising pictures of every GM in the game.
