Adam M. Rosales (born May 20, 1983 in Park Ridge, Illinois) is an American Major League Baseball infielder for the Oakland Athletics.

He made his major league debut as a pinch hitter for the Cincinnati Reds on August 9, 2008. Rosales was recalled from Louisville on August 20 following the injury of Jerry Hairston, Jr.

Rosales began the 2009 season with the Triple-A Louisville Bats after failing to earn a spot on the Reds' roster. He was called up on April 28 following the placement of Edwin Encarnacion on the 15-day disabled list. On February 1, 2010, Rosales was traded along with Willy Taveras to the Oakland Athletics for Aaron Miles and a player to be named later.

Rosales, who is of Mexican American descent, attended Maine South High School in Park Ridge, Illinois and Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

According to the website Tater Trot Tracker, on June 12, 2010, Rosales took 15.47 seconds to round the bases after hitting an outside-the-park home run, the fastest such trot that year. Teammate Dallas Braden said that Rosales "plays like he hasn't slept in four days."
