      Anthony Varvaro: Elects free agency

      Varvaro (elbow) elected free agency after being outrighted off the 40-man roster Friday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Varvaro missed the majority of the 2015 season after undergoing season-ending surgery for a torn flexor tendon in his right arm in May. He should be ready for the start of the 2016 season though, and figures to find himself on a major league roster wherever he lands.

      Cubs claim Anthony Varvaro off waivers from Red Sox

      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.

      Red Sox pitcher Anthony Varvaro could be lefty specialist this year

      Red Sox pitcher Anthony Varvaro could become a specialist out of Boston's bullpen this season, reports Varvaro, who was traded from the Braves during the offseason, said he feels very comfortable pitching to lefties. "When I saw that first lefty step in there, it's like a comfort zone," said Varvaro. "I'm like, 'Here he is.' Then the next one, perfect. And then the third one, I'm like, 'Did they set this up to roll this way to really see [how I am against lefties]'? For some reason, I've pitched better against lefties. I don't want to say why I think that is so other people maybe catch on. I don't want to say it's a comfort zone, but I tend to have more success against lefties." Vavaro kept left-handed hitters to a .149 average in 2014 while allowing .273 to righties. Manager John Farrell wouldn't give away whether he was face exclusively lefties during the season. "Once again, he was powerful and with good late action to attack both lefties and righties," said manager John Farrell. "Varvaro, I thought, was powerful."
