Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Seth Rosin has appeared in just four Major League Baseball games since being drafted in 2010.

On Monday, Rosin's career took another turn. The Minnesota Twins signed the right-handed pitcher to a minor league deal, according to multiple sources.

Rosin allowed eight runs and 14 hits in 8.2 innings in 2016 for the San Diego Padres' Triple-A squad. The 28-year-old University of Minnesota product was drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 amateur draft by the San Francisco Giants. He was traded in 2012 to the Philadelphia Phillies, as part of the Hunter Pence deal. He was then selected by the New York Mets from the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2013 rule 5 draft. The Los Angeles Dodgers bought him out that same day, before he was waived.

The Texas Rangers picked up Rosin in 2014, before he reunited with the Phillies. Rosin signed as a free agent in 2016 with the San Diego Padres.

He holds a 12.00 ERA in six big-league innings for the Rangers and Phillies. Rosin owns a 3.95 ERA in 430.1 minor league innings.
