Padres' Adam Rosales: Signs minors contract with the Padres
Rosales inked a minor league contract with the Padres on Friday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Rosales couldn't find his footing at the plate last season with the Rangers, slashing just .228/.296/.342 with three home runs over 114 at-bats with the club that eventually resulted in his designation for assignment in August. Rather than accept it, the veteran elected free agency and has now found a home in San Diego. The 32-year-old utility infielder now joins a San Diego organization that doesn't present a ton of outstanding options in the infield, and could provide him with an opportunity for him at the major league level. However, it seems likely he'll be bound for Triple-A to begin the season.

Rangers option Rougned Odor after losing playing time to Rosales
The Rangers have optioned second baseman Rougned Odor, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. The Dallas Morning News reported previously that Odor was on the verge of a demotion to Triple-A Round Rock. He has hit just .144/.252/.233 with one home run, nine RBI and one stolen base in 90 at-bats and has been out of the starting lineup for three straight games. "Rougned definitely will be part of a winning formula in Arlington," manager Jeff Banister said, per MLB.com. "We felt it was time for Rougned to go down and get back to being the type of player that got him here: gritty, gutty, tough at-bats, play routine defense, play with his hair on fire all over the place. "He is not unlike a lot of players who came up at a young age, had an amount of success, then the major-league atmosphere, major-league players, threw a punch at them. He needs to go down, get re-connected to the player he was, come back better and more capable of throwing a counter punch." With Odor heading to Triple-A, Adam Rosales could see more playing time at second base moving forward. Rosales has started four of the last five games at second base but has hit just .167/.222/.310 in 42 at-bats. In a corresponding move, the Rangers have purchased the contract of infielder Thomas Field from Round Rock. He has hit .298/.373/.538 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 104 Triple-A at-bats and is in the starting lineup Monday.
