Jerry Dipoto is at it again.

The Seattle Mariners made a minor trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday, acquiring right-hander Chase De Jong in exchange for minor-league shortstop Drew Jackson and minor-league pitcher Aneurys Zabala.

De Jong, 23, was a former second-round draft choice of the Toronto Blue Jays in 2012. He spent 2016 split between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City, posting a 15-5 record with a 2.82 ERA during 26 starts.

The 23-year-old Jackson was ranked as the No. 12 prospect in the Mariners' system before the trade after hitting .258/.332/.345 with six home runs, 47 RBIs, and 16 stolen bases at Single-A Bakersfield last season. He was drafted out of Stanford by the Mariners in the fifth round of the 2015 entry draft.

Zabala, 20, was the No. 22-ranked prospect with the Mariners, posting a 1-5 record with a 2.88 ERA in 25 innings during rookie ball in 2016.

The trade is the 14th made by Dipoto since November.
