The Curious Saga of Adam Rosales

In case you haven't been following the story of Adam Rosales, you may not remember that the Rangers claimed him off of waivers from Oakland on August 2, presumably to force Oakland to change their signs for a series against Texas. On August 5, he was designated for assignment and claimed back by Oakland on August 8. The end, right?

Wrong. The Athletics designated Rosales for assignment once again, and in a somewhat comedic twist to the ongoing saga, the Rangers have re-claimed Rosales. He'll be added to the active roster and a corresponding move will take place, presumably to send Engel Beltre back down to AAA Round Rock since Alex Rios was picked up on Friday.

Yeah, this thing just got weird.
