Rosales back-and-forth between AL West contenders

August 14, 2013

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Adam Rosales is a wanted man in the AL West race.

The utility infielder with a .220 career batting average has spent the first half of August ping-ponging back and forth between the Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics, who are in the closest division race in the majors.

There have been more roster moves than games played for Rosales the last two weeks.

Oakland has designated him for assignment twice since July 31. He claimed both times by the Rangers, who also moved him off their roster once before getting him back this week.

The good news for Rosales is that his car is in Texas. After he had it shipped to Texas the first time, he didn’t have it sent back to the West Coast when Oakland re-claimed him.
