Per Jon Heyman, the Rangers have re-signed free agent infielder Adam Rosales to a one year deal for $900,000

Adam Rosales is a Texas Ranger again, having agreed to a one year, $900,000 deal, per Jon Heyman on Twitter.

This would appear to be a major league deal, so the Rangers will have to make a move to clear a spot for Rosales on their 40 man roster, which is currently full.  The Rangers non-tendered Rosales earlier in the offseason, rather than risk an arbitration hearing with him, but apparently both sides decided the grass wasn't greener elsewhere.

Rosales, 31, spent part of 2013 and all of 2014 with the Rangers.  A career .226/.294/.342 hitter, Rosales can play all the infield positions, and will presumably be the Rangers' primary backup shortstop.  If Ryan Rua is playing the outfield regularly, or doesn't make the team, Rosales would be the primary backup at second base and third base, as well.
