Cubs claim RHP Brett Marshall
The Cubs claimed right-handed pitcher Brett Marshall off waivers from the Yankees Monday afternoon.
The 23-year-old saw his first major league action last season, making three relief appearances and posting a 4.50 ERA over 12 innings. Marshall spent most of 2013 in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he went 7-10 with a 5.13 ERA in 25 starts. He struck out a career high 120 batters in 138.2 innings and walked 68.
The Yankees originally drafted the Highlands, Texas, native in the sixth round of the 2008 draft. He has a career 36-32 record with a 4.07 ERA in 115 minor league games.
