As the Los Angeles Dodgers continue to evaluate options to upgrade their bullpen before July 31 trade deadline, the club retained some organizational depth when Zac Rosscup cleared waivers. The left-hander was subsequently sent outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
The Dodgers designated Rosscup for assignment on July 15 in a corresponding move to recalling Casey Sadler from Oklahoma City. It marked a third time this season Rosscup was designated for assignment.
He originally joined the Dodgers from the Colorado Rockies via waiver claim in July 2018. Rosscup appeared in 17 games for the Dodgers after that point, most notably completing an immaculate inning against the Seattle Mariners.
Rosscup was released last November and went on to sign a one-year contract with the Mariners. Although it was a Major League deal, the left-hander was released in May.
The Toronto Blue Jays claimed Rosscup off waivers less than a week later, though he only appeared in two games before again getting cut once more. Rosscup then signed a Minor League contract to return with the Dodgers last month.
He’s appeared in seven games for L.A. this season, throwing three innings and allowing two runs. Rosscup is a combined 2-0 with a 5.00 ERA for the Mariners, Blue Jays and Dodgers this season.
He has allowed six runs on seven hits in six innings pitched across seven games for Oklahoma City.
