#Cubs claim RHP Anthony Varvaro off waivers from Red Sox. LHP Joseph Ortiz DFA

Varvaro was designated for assignment by Boston on April 29 after struggling badly in three straight relief appearances. He was very good in 2014 with the Braves, posting a 2.63 ERA, 1.079 WHIP, and 50/13 K/BB ratio across 54 2/3 innings. The 30-year-old right-hander could be a nice waiver-wire grab for the Cubs.
