Rangers re-sign Rosales to one-year deal

Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Texas Rangers have signed infielder Adam Rosales to a one-year contract for the 2015 season.

The Rangers non-tendered Rosales back in December. He hit .262 with four home runs, 20 runs scored and 19 RBI in 56 games for Texas last season.

Rosales is a career .226 hitter with 24 home runs, 106 runs scored and 99 RBI over 375 games with Cincinnati (2008-09), Oakland (2010-13) and Texas (2013-14).

To make room on the 40-man roster for Rosales, the Rangers designated pitcher Matt West for assignment.

The Rangers also signed pitcher Juan Carlos Oviedo to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league spring training.

Oviedo went 3-3 with a 3.69 ERA in 32 relief appearances for Tampa Bay last season in his return from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander has a career 21-23 record with 93 saves and a 4.28 ERA for the Royals (2005-08), Marlins (2009-11) and Rays (2014).
