Dodgers claim Zac Rosscup

The Los Angeles Dodgers today claimed left-handed pitcher Zac Rosscup from the Colorado Rockies. 

Rosscup, 30, has made 10 relief appearances with Colorado's Triple-A Albuquerque, giving up just one earned run over 8.1 innings (1.08 ERA) and limiting the opposition to a .133 average. The Oregon native was originally selected by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, and was acquired by the Cubs in 2011 before being traded to the Rockies in 2017. Over the course of his career, the southpaw has a 3-1 record, 5.30 ERA (32 ER/54.1 IP), 1.55 WHIP in 71 career big league games over five seasons. He has limited left-handed batters to a .136 batting average (12-for-88), the third-lowest batting average vs. left-handers among active pitchers (min. 100 batters faced). Rosscup started the season on the 60-day disabled list with a blister on the left middle finger and has yet to play in the Majors this season.

To create room on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers designated left-handed pitcher Edward Paredes for assignment. Paredes, 31, has appeared in 15 games of relief for Los Angeles this season, combining for a 2-0 record along with a 5.87 ERA (5 ER/7.2 IP) and striking out eight batters against two walks.
