Dodgers acquire right-handed pitcher Seth Rosin


LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today acquired right-handed pitcher Seth Rosin from the New York Mets in exchange for cash considerations after the 25-year-old was selected by New York in the Major League phase of the Rule 5 draft from Philadelphia.

Rosin, a 6-foot-6, 250-pounder, spent the 2013 season with the Phillies' Double-A Reading club, going 9-6 with a 4.33 ERA in 26 games (23 starts). In four professional seasons, Rosin, has gone 14-12 with 12 saves and a 4.00 ERA in 108 games (42 starts), after he was originally selected by the Giants in the fourth round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Minnesota.

Including Rosin, the Dodgers have acquired only 12 players through the Rule 5 draft since 1981 and four of those players have made the Opening Day roster, last occurring with right-handed pitcher Carlos Monasterios in 2010.

The Dodgers now have 36 players on their 40-man roster.
