The Rangers and Adam Rosales have agreed to terms on a one-year contract for 2014, according to an ESPN report. 

Rosales, 30, was arbitration eligible, but instead will earn $750,000 on a big league contract.

The utility infielder was designated for assignment by the A's last August and claimed by the Rangers. Then he was designated for assignment by Texas and reclaimed by the A's, only to be designated for assignment once more and claimed by the Rangers one final time.

A lifetime .219 batter, Rosales hit .223 in four years with the A's. His best season was his first in Oakland when he hit .271 with seven home and 31 RBI runs in 80 games in 2010.

The A's signed utility infielder Nick Punto to a one-year contract on Wednesday.
