Utility man Adam Rosales, who had two at-bats this month between two teams and three waiver claims, will make his first start with the Rangers on Friday night to open a three-games series at Chicago. Rosales is 4 for 7 in his career against Chris Sale, the White Sox's All-Star left-hander. Rosales is the designated hitter, and Jurickson Profar gets a day off. He's hitting only .194 against lefties.
