Drafted: 2005 June Amateur Draft - Round: 12, Pick: 12, Overall: 362, Team: Cincinnati Reds
Contract: $1.2M / 1 Years (2017)
RotoWire News: Rosales, who returned to the A's on a one-year, $1.25 million contract in January, could potentially back up five positions in 2017, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports. (2/21/2017)

Profile: In 2016, Rosales came to the batter's box more often than he had in any previous season since 2010. He rewarded the Padres with a discerning batting eye and easily the greatest power output of his career. The lanky infielder hit 13 bombs on his way to a .266 isolated slugging percentage and a park-adjusted offense 14% better than average, the first time he's ever posted a wRC+ over 100. He also walked in nearly 12% of his plate appearances, also a career high in MLB and the best he's posted since a 2007 stint with the Reds' Double-A affiliate. Continuing with the theme of career highs in 2016, Rosales struck out 35.5% of the time, fourth-most frequently in the league among those with at least the same number of plate appearances. Looking at his plate discipline, we see a mixed bag. He continued to chase far less often than the league, hence his walks, but he also whiffed at alarming rates both in and out of the zone leading to (another) career high in whiff rate. But when he made contact, Rosales hit the ball hard, particularly on line drives and fly balls (and he hit a ton of fly balls). Still, Rosales is a 33-year old journeyman who is slated to back up all four infield positions in Oakland. It's hard to imagine that as a situation that makes him relevant in any but the deepest of leagues. (Rylan Edwards)

The Quick Opinion: Despite career highs in power and selectivity, Rosales' ceiling is restrictively low due to playing-time constraints. He's a decent option to stream against lefties in deep or AL-only leagues.
