    Never fear, Adam Rosales is here?

    Not exactly the screaming-headline kinda transaction Rangers fans are still pining for this winter, but Rosales fills an important void on this roster heading into Spring Training. Mainly, that of the primary utility infielder.

    The Rangers signed Rosales to a one-year contract after watching him play in 56 games in 2014 and hit .262. Because of the team’s countless injuries, he started 31 of the final 36 games and proved he could at least plug a hole long enough to keep the entire ship from sinking.

    Rosales was actually the team’s Player of the Month in August when he hit .352 while playing all four infield spots and being designated hitter for five games.

    A native Texan who was born in Duncanville and graduated from UT-Arlington, Richie Whitt has been a mainstay in the Metroplex media since 1986. He’s held prominent roles on all media platforms including newspaper (Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas Observer), radio (105.3 The Fan) and TV (co-host on TXA 21 and numerous guest appearances, including NBC 5). He currently lives in McKinney with his wife, Sybil, and two very spoiled dogs.
