The Los Angeles Dodgers have traded left-handed reliever Zac Rosscup to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for cash considerations, the teams announced.

Rosscup, 31, was designated for assignment by the Dodgers nearly two weeks ago and reported to Triple-A after clearing waivers.

This will be the fourth team Rosscup has played for this season after brief stints with the Dodgers, Seattle Mariners, and Toronto Blue Jays. He spent 2018 with the Colorado Rockies and Dodgers.

This season, he has pitched to a 5.00 ERA, 4.95 FIP, and a 4.04 DRA while striking out 27% of hitters and walking 20% over 18 innings.

He owns a career 5.16 ERA and 4.75 FIP in 83 1/3 innings.

  1. It feels kind of funny to take cash considerations from a not so wealthy team when we’re filthy rich and are already hoarding money and not putting it into the team like the greedy owners they are

  2. I would think that any team taking Rosscup would need to be paid. What did the Cards give the Dodgers $1.00 for pitcher who only threw gas on the fire.
