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.
