As the Oakland A's continue to await the rest of Major League Baseball to have their opening day, Billy Beane, Bob Melvin and the rest of the team's braintrust has been busy filling out the rest of their 40-man roster. They made a significant move on Monday after the team sent infielder Adam Rosales to AAA Sacramento, according to CSN Bay Area.
Rosales had himself a bit of a rough spring at the plate, batting a meager .167 without a home run and only two RBI in 12 games for Oakland. He had only 18 at bats, striking out four times while walking thrice, and was 0/2 attempting stealing bases.
The A's now have 27 men left on their roster, needing to cut two more players before their 'opening day' meeting with the Miami Marlins this Friday. But first, a three game Bay Bridge exhibition series with the San Francisco Giants.
