The Diamondbacks have signed reliever Kameron Loe to a minor league deal, MLB.com’s Bernie Pleskoff reports. Loe was released by the Braves on Monday. He’ll report to Triple-A Reno.

Loe, 32, has been well-traveled lately. He signed with the Giants in January, but they decided to head in another direction, releasing him at the end of spring training. The Royals grabbed him as a free agent in April, but they released him on May 24 after posting a 4.09 ERA in 11 innings at Triple-A Omaha. The Braves signed him two days later.

In 17 1/3 innings with Triple-A Gwinnett this season, Loe posted an 8.83 ERA with a 16/3 K/BB ratio.

A day after throwing an immaculate inning — getting through an inning on three consecutive strikeouts with nine pitches — against the Mariners, Dodgers reliever Zac Rosscup was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left calf strain. The move made room on the 25-man roster for Kenley Jansen, who is back after missing some time due to an irregular heartbeat.

Rosscup pitched the ninth inning of Sunday’s 12-1 win over the Mariners. He struck out Kyle Seager, Ryon Healy, and Cameron Maybin on three pitches each. Rosscup is the fourth pitcher to throw an immaculate inning this season, joining Kevin Gausman, Max Scherzer, and German Marquez. 2018’s four immaculate innings is still far behind 2017’s record of eight.

Rosscup has pitched only 6 2/3 innings in the majors this year. He has yielded five runs (all earned) on seven hits and a walk with 10 strikeouts. He missed a significant amount of time earlier this season due to a blister on his left middle finger.
