Zac Rosscup will report to Triple-A Buffalo after being designated for assignment on May 28, the team announced Saturday.

According to the team’s MLB.com transactions page, LHP Zac Rosscup has cleared waivers and has been sent outright to Triple-A Buffalo. The Blue Jays designated Rosscup for assignment on May 28th.

Rosscup was originally added to the MLB roster on May 24th in a flurry of roster moves after being claimed off waivers from the Seattle Mariners.

Rosscup, 30, began his career with the Tampa Bay Rays but made his major league debut with the Chicago Cubs in 2013. In 6.2 innings in his first season, he pitched to an ERA of 1.35 while striking out seven.

In 2017, he was traded to the Colorado Rockies and proceeded to appear in nine games in 2017. Shortly after, he was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers, and soon found his way to Seattle, appearing in 19 games in 2019 as a Mariner.

In just two games with the Blue Jays, the native of Clackamas, Oregon allowed three earned runs on three hits, striking out two and walking two.

For his career, he has appeared in 109 major-league contests, racking up 109 strikeouts and five wins to go along with two losses and a career ERA of 5.13 in parts of six seasons.

Rosscup was one of four pitchers designated for assignment by the Blue Jays in the month of May, the others being Javy Guerra, Jimmy Cordero, and Ryan Feierabend.
