Rosscup joined the Rockies on a minor-league deal Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
The deal does not include an invitation to big-league camp, so don't expect to see Rosscup on the Rockies' Opening Day roster. The lefty walked 19 batters in 18 innings last season while recording a 5.00 ERA.
Rosscup was traded from the Dodgers to the Cardinals on Monday in exchange for cash considerations.
The veteran lefty has appeared for the Mariners, Blue Jays and Dodgers this season, stumbling to a 5.00 ERA. His 27.7 percent strikeout rate is strong, but it's been more than canceled out by an awful 20.2 percent walk rate. He's always been a high walk guy, but his career 14.2 percent mark is far more manageable. He'll be assigned to Triple-A Memphis for now but could be an option down the stretch if he can get his command in line.
Rosscup was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Rosscup was designated for assignment Monday and passed through waivers without being claimed. He has posted a 5.00 ERA and 2.28 WHIP across 18 innings with three big-league clubs this season.
Rosscup was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Monday.
Rosscup has spent time with three big-league teams this season but failed to impress with any of them. His 5.00 ERA in 18 innings is more mediocre than terrible, but it's come with a 2.28 WHIP and a 20.2 percent walk rate. Casey Sadler was recalled in a corresponding move.
Rosscup had his contract selected from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.
Rosscup signed with the Dodgers earlier in the month after being designated for assignment by Blue Jays. The left-hander owns a 4.50 ERA, 2.19 WHIP and 25:18 K:BB across 16 innings in 21 appearances with Toronto and Seattle this season. Caleb Ferguson was sent to Triple-A while A.J. Pollock (elbow) was shifted to the 60-day injured list in a pair of corresponding roster moves.
Rosscup signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers on Wednesday, Oklahoma City Dodgers broadcaster Alex Freedman reports.
Rosscup threw 11.1 innings for the Dodgers back in 2018, posting a 4.76 ERA. He has a similar 4.80 ERA in 15 frames for the Mariners and Blue Jays this season. The lefty owns a strong 33.9 percent strikeout rate over the last two seasons, but that's been paired with a far-too-high 16.1 percent walk rate.
Rosscup cleared waivers and elected free agency Monday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Previous reports suggested that Rosscup had accepted his outright assignment to the minors, but he's evidently made a different decision. He may still be looking at a minor-league contract for his next opportunity, as his 4.80 ERA in 15 innings this season has come with a 20.8 percent walk rate and a 2.13 WHIP.
The Blue Jays outrighted Rosscup to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.
Rosscup will stick in the organization after going unclaimed off waivers when the Blue Jays designated him for assignment last week. Between big-league stops with Seattle and Toronto this season, Rosscup has posted a 4.80 ERA, 2.13 WHIP and 22:16 K:BB across 15 innings.
Rosscup was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.
Rosscup will hit waivers for the second time in two weeks after allowing four runs (three earned) in one inning of work during his very brief stay in Toronto. Justin Shafer was recalled in a corresponding move.
Rosscup was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Thursday.
He was designated for assignment by the Mariners last week, but the Blue Jays decided he was a better use of a 40-man roster spot than Jimmy Cordero, whom they designated for assignment in a corresponding move. Rosscup's 3.21 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 14 innings for Seattle look pretty excellent, but he also walked a batter per inning over that stretch.
Rosscup was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Friday.
Rosscup has posted a 3.21 ERA with 20 punchouts over 14 innings this season, but he'll head to the waiver wire after getting booted from the 40-man roster. Seattle also optioned Erik Swanson to Triple-A Tacoma, while Matt Festa was recalled and Ryan Garton's contract was purchased from the Rainiers.
Rosscup, who allowed an earned run on two hits and a wild pitch while also recording two strikeouts over an inning against the Twins on Thursday, owns a 2-0 record, five holds, a 3.21 ERA and a 1.93 WHIP across 14 innings this season.
The veteran southpaw's WHIP leaves plenty to be desired, but Rosscup has largely limited the potential damage from his control issues by yielding just one home run thus far. Prior to May, Rosscup had mostly been used in matchup-based situations that saw him work under an inning in 11 of 14 outings, but he's now logged one full frame in four of his first five trips to the mound during the month.
Rosscup is one of the candidates for save opportunities during Hunter Strickland's (lat) absence, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The 30-year-old southpaw was one of several names rattled off by manager Scott Servais on Saturday when the Mariners skipper was asked about possible ninth-inning replacements during Strickland's time on the injured list. Rosscup has yet to record a save during a five-season major-league career, but he would give Servais a left-handed option in the ninth inning. He's already been busy in the new season, logging two innings across three appearances.
Rosscup (1-0) fired a scoreless 11th inning in an extra-innings win over the Athletics on Thursday, allowing a hit and two walks while recording three strikeouts.
The 30-year-old southpaw had an eventful frame to say the least, opening the inning by recording a pair of whiffs before surrendering a Marcus Semien single and walking both Matt Chapman and Stephen Piscotty. However, Rosscup then came up huge by mowing down the dangerous Khris Davis on three pitches to snuff out the threat. Rosscup endured an injury-plagued 2018 with the Dodgers, but he's capable of missing plenty of bats as evidenced by his 87 career strikeouts over just 66.1 innings.
Rosscup signed a one-year contract with the Mariners on Thursday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Rosscup was limited to just 17 appearances with the Dodgers in 2018 due to finger and calf injuries that resulted in a trio of trips to the disabled list. When healthy, the 30-year-old posted a 4.76 ERA and 20:4 K:BB in 11.1 innings. The southpaw has fared better against same-handed hitters throughout his career (.541 OPS against lefties, 1.023 OPS against righties), so he figures to serve as a lefty specialist for the Mariners in 2019.
Rosscup was released by the Dodgers on Thursday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Rosscup was designated for assignment earlier in the week as the club moved to protect younger players from the Rule 5 draft. The 30-year-old allowed six earned runs on nine hits over 11.1 innings for the Dodgers in 2018, and similarly has a career 5.21 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 65.2 major-league innings.
Rosscup was designated for assignment Tuesday.
A 30-year-old reliever, Rosscup posted a 4.76 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 11.1 innings in the majors last season. The move allows the Dodgers to protect a more valuable player from the Rule 5 draft.
Rosscup (calf) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sautrday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
Rosscup has allowed five runs in 6.2 innings while striking out 10 this season and is expected to return to a low-leverage role for the Dodgers' newly expanded roster.
Rosscup (calf) made a rehab appearance at Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, retiring two of the three hitters he faced while notching a strikeout.
Rosscup has only been on the shelf since Aug. 20 with the left calf strain, so he'll likely require only a brief rehab assignment before presumably joining the Dodgers when rosters expand Saturday. The lefty has made eight appearances in the majors this season, giving up five runs over 6.2 innings and striking out 10.
Rosscup was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a left calf strain.
This move allows the Dodgers to activate closer Kenley Jansen (heart) from the disabled list. Rosscup struck out three in a scoreless inning Sunday in Seattle, but must have suffered the injury at some point during that outing. It is unclear how long he will be sidelined.
