The A's have brought back a familiar face. Meet the 2013 A's, same as the 2012 A's

With the awkward plate collision yesterday that left Alberto Callaspo with a forearm contrusion, it appears the A's may need another backup infielder.  Hence this:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>The <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Athletics&amp;src=hash">#Athletics</a> have claimed IF Adam Rosales off waivers from the <a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Rangers&amp;src=hash">#Rangers</a>. A corresponding 25-man roster move will be made tomorrow.</p>&mdash; Oakland Athletics (@Athletics) <a href="https://twitter.com/Athletics/statuses/365539162595659776">August 8, 2013</a></blockquote>

Or, there is also this explanation:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>Adam Rosales: Double Agent sent to Texas by Billy. Returns with needed info to secure division.</p>&mdash; Omar G (@omar01) <a href="https://twitter.com/omar01/statuses/365542541124321280">August 8, 2013</a></blockquote>

In any case, begin the speculation!  The most logical move is Callaspo, but Jerry Blevins has also been struggling. There is another LHP option who could potentially work out:

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Somewhere, Nathaniel Stoltz is giddy about the latter move.
