    • The Cubs have claimed pitcher Anthony Varvaro off waivers from the Red Sox and designated pitcher Joe Ortiz for assignment, the team announced Sunday. Varvaro made nine appearances with the Red Sox before hitting waivers, giving up five earned runs in 11 innings while striking out eight batters and walking six. He posted ERAs under 3.00 while making more than 60 appearances in each of his previous two seasons, both with the Braves, and he owns a career 3.23 ERA, 7.4 K/9 rate and 3.4 BB/9 rate in 183 2/3 innings across 166 appearances. Ortiz, whose only major-league action came in 2013 with the Rangers, has given up four earned runs in 10 2/3 innings for Triple-A Iowa while striking out just one batter and walking five. He'll likely be reassigned to Iowa if he clears waivers.
