Dodgers Acquire Seth Rosin

FRIDAY: The Mets announced (on Twitter) that they have received cash considerations from the Dodgers in exchange for Rosin.

THURSDAY: The Mets have traded right-hander Seth Rosin — their selection in this morning's Rule 5 Draft — to the Dodgers, tweets MLB.com's Ken Gurnick. GM Sandy Alderson had told reporters (including ESPN's Adam Rubin) earlier this morning that he had worked out a deal to send Rosin to another team for a player to be named later (Twitter links).

Rosin, 25, posted a 4.33 ERA with 6.8 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 in 126 2/3 innings for the Phillies' Double-A affiliate in 2013. The Giants selected Rosin in the fourth round of the 2010 draft out of the University of Minnesota and traded him to the Phillies along with Nate Schierholtz and Tommy Joseph in the Hunter Pence deal of July 2012. Schierholtz was non-tendered after the 2012 season and signed with the Cubs, leaving Joseph as the last remaining piece of that deal. Of course, Rosin is no guarantee to stick with the Dodgers and could ultimately be returned to the Phillies.

    No one tell these GMs that he was the throw-in in the Hunter Pence deal.

      Doesn’t matter. He’s likely coming back to you. He won’t stay on 40 man roster all year.

      • Mike LaRose 2 years ago

        Can he still be returned if he was traded after being a rule 5 selection?

        • Klaus D. 2 years ago

          Yes, even though he was traded, he’ll have to stay on the Dodgers’ 25 man roster all year or be offered back to the Phillies.

      • Kën Shrëk 2 years ago

        each Rule 5 pick must be kept in the major leagues the entire following season or be offered back to his former team for half of the $50,000 selection price

        • MM8677 2 years ago

          Yup and rules are the same for the team that he’s traded to.

      Clearly..I’m just going off what players they have and wondering if they’ve been linked to anyone else

      Clearly…just going off what they have on their roster and wondering if they’ve been linked to anyone to play a infield position.

  2. Wonder if the player to be named later is SS Dee Gordon…

    The phillies should have traded him before for a player to be named later instead of the mets cashing in on him

      Maybe Ruben was too busy running around to sell the hell out of Papelbon that he flew by the Dodgers.

    I have no idea if stuff like this happens a lot, but it seems like a shrewd move by Sandy (all dependent on the PTBNL, of course).

    A pitcher whose name is Rosin?

      BlueSkyLA 2 years ago

      Could be worse, his name could be Homer.

      • TommyL 2 years ago

        And don’t forget the pitcher named Balfour.

        • BlueSkyLA
          BlueSkyLA 2 years ago

          Grant Balfour, to make it even worse!

          Josh Outman is also too good to be true.

    What exactly are the Dodgers planning on doing with their infield and bench? So far I have them playing Hanley at 3rd, Gordon at SS and Guerrero at 2nd. As for the bench Sellers on the bench and Ethier or Kemp and Van Slyke. They can’t go into opening day looking how they look now can they? Just curious if they’ve been linked to any infielders besides Uribe or any bench players?

    • chandyman 2 years ago

      gordon will not be playing short. He is an awful shortstop

    • meep 2 years ago

      that would be a bad choice if they put Gordon at SS. Gordon at this point is a bench player if he makes the team. why you worrying about the team now. the season not for a little over 3 months. dodgers will have a team they just arent in a hurry to fill the roster out. also not sure if they will go 5 OF deep on the team. they only been link to i seen is uribe and michael young

    I expected the Dodgers to at least make one move during the Winter Meetings. Didnt think itd be this.

  8. Al McCullough 2 years ago

    wonder if they acquired Rosin’s bag too.

  9. Wow, some teams just love, love, love ex-Giants, like Dodgers, Pirates, Phillies, and others. Colletti could probably field a team cumulatively with the guys he has picked up over the years.

    Anyone thinking Dee will start needs to come back to reality. Never happen unless they are handcuffed with injuries

  11. T Doeger 2 years ago

    A.Guerrero has a better chance of playing short than Dee

    So are the Mets actually getting a PTBNL, or was that just another way of saying they were getting cash? I never understood these deals from the perspective of the team who picked them. Is it really worth it for a small amount of money? I’m guessing the Dodgers were concerned that someone else would pick the guy before their turn came around. As an aside, my son was very disappointed to hear that the Mets were trading him, as his name is also Seth.
