SEATTLE — Without a left-handed relief specialists on the 40-man roster, the Mariners transferred to fulfill that requirement on Thursday by registering agent Zac Rosscup into some yearlong Major League deal.

The 30-year-old from Clackamas, Ore., posted a 4.76 ERA at 11 1/3 innings for the Dodgers last year, with nine hits, 20 strikeouts and four walks across 17 appearances. In addition, he put up a 1.00 ERA and 4 hits allowed over nine innings at 11 Triple-A outings.

“When healthy, Zac includes swing-and-miss stuff, which has interpreted in any respect levels” Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said. “We look forward to seeing exactly what he can do with Goodhealth and real opportunity.”

The southpaw possesses a career 5.21 ERA at 8 8 Major League excursions over five seasons, having previously pitched in 62 games to the Cubs and nine to the Rockies. 1 3 home runs have been let by rosscup but he’s got 87 strikeouts to go with 3-6 walks.

Over the past two seasons, he has awakened 30 strikeouts in 19 innings more than 27 appearances.

While Dipoto’s roster make over this off season has dedicated to shedding costly veterans and players with limited staying team control for younger prospects, then he’ll still have to fill some holes veterans on one-year deals.

Rosscup fits that mold last year for a lefty specialist who earned only over the Major League minimum of $610,000 and was released by the Dodgers at November. The Mariners traded left hander James Pazos into the Mets, and so they allowed Zach Duke to depart at no agency after also releasing veteran southpaw Marc Rzepczynski from midseason.

Roenis Elias is the only other lefty relief candidate on the current 40-man roster, but he has more of a long reliever who could take the mix for a starting role this spring.

At 38 players up, the Mariners’ 40-man roster is currently Together with the signing of Rosscup.
