CHICAGO – The Cubs made their first acquisition of the offseason today, picking up lefty reliever David Rollins off waivers from the Seattle Mariners.

Rollins spent most of last year with the Mariners’ Triple-A affiliate in Tacoma, where he went 5-0 with two saves and a 3.77 ERA in 37 relief appearances.

The 26-year-old southpaw also pitched in 11 games for the Mariners, going 1-0 with a 7.71 ERA.

Rollins was originally drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 24th round of the 2011 draft out of San Jacinto College.
