Former Fightins' starter Seth Rosin was selected in the Rule 5 Draft on Thursday, then traded to the Dodgers.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -

The Dodgers acquired right-handed pitcher Seth Rosin from the Mets on Thursday, after the Mets selected him from the Phillies in the Rule 5 Draft. The Mets received cash to complete the deal.

Rosin, 25, went 9-6 with a 4.33 ERA in 23 starts and three relief appearances last year for Philadelphia's Double-A Reading affiliate. A fourth-round Draft pick of the Giants in 2010, Rosin struck out 96 batters and walked 35 in 126 2/3 innings.

Per Rule 5 Draft stipulations, Rosin must stick on the Dodgers' 25-man roster or disabled list all season or be offered back to his original club -- in this case, the Phils -- for $25,000. The Mets paid $50,000 to draft him for the Dodgers, who compensated New York for their trouble.
