Rosales (oblique) was reinstated from Triple-A Columbus' 7-day injured list Sunday and has since appeared in two games for the affiliate. Rosales was sidelined for slightly more than the minimum amount of time with the oblique injury. He'll fill a utility role for Columbus now that he's healthy again but will probably need multiple infielders at the big-league level to succumb to injuries before receiving a callup.
Rosales was placed on the injured list at Triple-A Columbus with an oblique injury Wednesday. The severity of the injury is not yet clear. Rosales is not on Cleveland's 40-man roster, so he's unlikely to be considered for a callup even if healthy.
Rosales was traded to Cleveland for cash considerations. He'll likely just add depth at Triple-A for the Indians. He was hitting .194 with a .485 OPS at Triple-A Rochester.
Rosales signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Tuesday. Rosales is back with the Twins after being cut loose by Minnesota last week. The utility man, who hit .294/.368/.735 with four homers and a 4:4 BB:K through 15 Grapefruit League games, will report to Triple-A Rochester to open the season.
Rosales was released by the Twins on Friday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Rosales held his own in camp, slashing .294/.368/.735 with four homers and a 4:4 BB:K through 15 games. Still, it wasn't enough for the utility man to secure a spot on Minnesota's Opening Day roster. Rosales will look to latch on elsewhere as a utility option.
