Rosales rejoins A's

Adam Rosales in back with the Oakland Athletics after the club selected his contract from Triple-A Sacramento.

Rosales batted .200 with four homers and eight RBI over 48 games before the A's designated him for assignment earlier this month. After clearing waivers, he was outrighted to Sacramento on July 12.

To make room for a career .221 hitter at the major league level, infielder Vinnie Catricala was designated for assignment.
