On Thursday, August 8th the Oakland Athletics claimed utility infielder Adam Rosales of waivers from the Texas Rangers. This is the third time this season that Rosales was placed on waivers. Just over a week ago he was placed on waivers by the Athletics and picked up by the Rangers. Earlier this season the Athletics placed Rosales on waivers and no one claimed him so he was outrighted to Sacramento. This will be his third stint with the Athletics this season.
The corresponding 25 man roster move has not been announced.
Based on recent history we’ll see if the team that holds Rosales has the hot hand.
