ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Texas Rangers have agreed to a $750,000, one-year contract with utility infielder Adam Rosales.

Rosales was eligible for salary arbitration before the deal announced Thursday.

The Rangers also signed left-hander Aaron Poreda and outfielder Brad Snyder to minor league contracts with invitations to major league spring training.

Rosales is a .219 career hitter in 319 major league games with Cincinnati (2008-09), Oakland (2010-13) and Texas (2013). He has started at all four infield positions, and also played left field.

During a two-week span in August, Rosales was sent back and forth between the Rangers and Oakland. The A's designated him for assignment twice in that span, and he was claimed both times by Texas, which also moved him off its roster once before getting him back for good.
