The Rangers announced today that they re-signed infielder Adam Rosales to a one-year contract. According to various reports, he’ll make a $900,000 salary in 2015.

Rosales was non-tendered by Texas in December after batting .262/.328/.378 with four home runs, 19 RBI, and four stolen bases across 181 plate appearances last season, but the two sides were able to hammer out a new deal. The 31-year-old made starts at all four infield positions in 2014 and figures to serve as a utility infielder again this year.

The Rangers designated right-hander Matt West for assignment in order to clear a spot for Rosales on their 40-man roster. The 26-year-old converted infielder was limited to just one appearance in 2013 due to Tommy John surgery and had a 3.34 ERA and 64/18 K/BB ratio in 56 2/3 innings between Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock last season.
