Olmos was claimed off waivers by the Cubs on Wednesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. To clear room on the roster for Olmos, the Cubs released the recently acquired Brendan Ryan on Wednesday. Olmos has bounced around several organizations this offseason, including the Mariners, Cubs, Orioles, and now the Cubs once again. He'll be one of many pitchers vying for a spot in the Cubs' bullpen in spring training.
Olmos was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Thursday, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports. The Orioles will mark the Olmos' third organization in December after the tall lefty was DFA'd by the Mariners and briefly claimed by the Cubs. Olmos had trouble in his two major league starts in 2015, but fared slightly better working out of the bullpen. If he can dial in his command a bit (.5 K:BB rate in 14 IP in 2015), he could find himself in a lefty specialist role in the Baltimore 'pen.
Olmos was claimed off waivers by the Cubs Friday, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. The 25-year-old lefty has pitched in just 11 games in the majors since 2013, but will look to find a role in Chicago's bullpen next season. The move brings the Cubs' 40-man roster number to 37.
Olmos was DFA'd by the Mariners on Wednesday. Olmos finished the 2015 season at Triple-A Tacoma, and he was removed from the 40-man roster Wednesday to make room for infielder Andy Wilkins, who was claimed off waivers from Baltimore.
The Mariners recalled pitcher Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Tacoma, filling the empty roster spot created when Seattle sent down pitcher Edgar Olmos on Sunday, per a team release. Farquhar has made 30 appearances with the Mariners this season, compiling an 0-4 record and 5.75 ERA with one save.
