Adam Rosales rode the waiver-wire coaster late last year. One day he was with the Oakland Athletics, the next with the Texas Rangers.
It became almost comical.
The Rangers acquired Rosales on Aug. 2, he went back to the A’s on Aug. 8 and then finally landed with the Rangers for good on Aug. 12.
“It was a good learning experience,” Rosales said. “I’m the kind of person who always tries to find the silver lining and just viewed it as a great opportunity every time.”
Rosales laughed about having both teams asking about different signs for each club, but is happy to be with Texas and in position to become its utility infielder this season.
“It’s been a great camp so far,” Rosales said. “We always have something going on every minute we’re out there.”
10 Left-hander Michael Kirkman is going into his 10th season with the Rangers. The 2005 fifth-round draft pick is the player with the most consecutive years in the organization.
He said it
“The more I pitched [at Rangers Ballpark], the more comfortable I got. It just seems like you have to crow-hop to get it to the plate in some places. But I was very confident toward the end and that confidence carries over to executing pitches.” — Jason Frasor on getting comfortable on the ballpark’s mound
