The Dodgers on Wednesday claimed left-handed reliever Zac Rosscup from the Rockies and designated lefty Edward Paredes for assignment.
Rosscup was originally drafted in 2009 by the Rays when Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman was running the club. After getting traded to the Cubs in 2011, Rosscup has made a combined 71 appearances at the big league level, most recently with Colorado after being traded there last season.
Spending most of the year on the 60-day disabled list stint due to a wart on his left middle finger, the 30-year-old had made 10 appearances out of the bullpen at Triple-A Albuquerque, posting a 1.08 ERA and striking out nine in 8 1⁄3 innings.
Paredes — who was optioned Tuesday to make room for Kenta Maeda’s return — has allowed five runs in 7 2⁄3 innings at with the Dodgers this season.
