Dodgers News: Lefty Reliever Zac Rosscup Remains in Organization After DFA

The journeyman lefty finds his way back to the organization again.



Left handed pitcher Zac Rosscup, designated for assignment on Monday, cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Rosscup, 31, was in his second tour of duty with the Dodgers in 2019 after spending time with the club in 2018. In between, he saw stops with the Seattle Mariners and the Toronto Blue Jays, pitching to a combined 4.80 ERA in 21 games and 15 innings pitched.

With Los Angeles, he struggled to a 6.00 ERA in 7 games and 3 innings pitched. FIP was even more unkind to Zac coming in at 7.89.

Across 6 Triple-A seasons, he’s accumulated a 2.67 ERA in 96 games.

Chances are that it’s not terribly likely that he makes another appearance with the Dodgers in 2019. Even with the news that Scott Alexander will be shut down indefinitely, the hope and expectation is that a move to shore up the bullpen and left-handed relief will be made before the July 31st trade deadline.

His biggest highlight will forever remain his immaculate inning thrown in Seattle on August 19 last season.

  1. Sadly, when it comes to the bullpen, even the other teams are aware of its real value. “I like the guys we got.” And yes I’m going to keep repeating Doc’s immortal phrase until the FO steps up and gets a couple of guys who don’t blow leads.
