Dodgers acquire two prospects for De Jong

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers dealt right-handed pitcher Chase De Jong to the Mariners on Wednesday for a pair of Minor Leaguers, shortstop Drew Jackson and right-handed pitcher Aneurys Zabala.

The move clears a spot on the Dodgers' 40-man roster.

Jackson, 23, has a career .288 batting average with 63 stolen bases, eight home runs and 73 RBIs along with a .363 on-base percentage in 183 games in two professional seasons after being drafted in the fifth round out of Stanford in 2015. He was the 12th-best prospect in Seattle's system, according to MLBPipeline.com.

Zabala, 20, has a 4-13 record with a 4.49 ERA and has recorded four saves in 44 career games (12 starts) over three Minor League seasons. He was ranked No. 22 in the Seattle system by MLBPipeline.com.
