Rosales gets shiner in BP

|
ARLINGTON -- Adam Rosales sported quite the black-and-blue shiner over his left eye Thursday, as a result of a line drive that ricocheted off the pitcher's L-screen and came back to hit him during Wednesday's batting practice.

Manager Bob Geren initially described his infielder as having "a little [Mixed Martial Arts] look to him" and on Thursday dropped another sports movie reference.

"He's got a Rocky Balboa eye," the skipper said. "He's a tough kid."

The bruise didn't keep Rosales off the field, where he hasn't committed an error in 28 games as a second baseman. The 26-year-old is one of just two American League qualifiers at second base without an error.
