Seth Daniel Rosin (born November 2, 1988) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball.


Rosin attended Mounds View High School in Arden Hills, Minnesota. After graduating high school, the Minnesota Twins selected Rosin in the 28th round of the 2007 MLB Draft.[1] Rosin opted not to sign, and instead enrolled at the University of Minnesota, where he played college baseball for the Minnesota Golden Gophers, he was named to the All-Big Ten team in 2009 and 2010. The San Francisco Giants selected Rosin in the fourth round of the 2010 MLB Draft, and Rosin signed. He spent 2010 through 2012 in the Giants farm system with the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes of the Class A-Short Season Northwest League, the Augusta Greenjackets of the Class A Southern League, and the San Jose Giants of the Class A-Advanced California League.

The Giants traded Rosin, Nate Schierholtz, and Tommy Joseph to the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for Hunter Pence on July 31, 2012.[2] He played in 3 games for the Clearwater Threshers of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League at the end of 2012 and was then promoted to the Reading Phillies of the Class AA Eastern League. in 2013, where he was 9-6 with a 4.33 ERA in 26 games (23 starts).

The New York Mets selected Rosin from the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2013 Rule 5 Draft.[3] He was then traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers that same day.[4]

Rosin made the Dodgers 25-man opening day roster.[5] However he did not play in the opening series in Australia and was claimed off waivers by the Texas Rangers on March 26.[6] Rosin was designated for assignment by the Rangers on April 9.[7] He cleared waivers and was returned to the Phillies, who assigned him to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs of the Class AAA International League.[8] The Phillies demoted Rosin to Reading in June.[9]
