Marlins claim Preston Claiborne off waivers from Yankees

Designated for assignment by the Yankees last week, right-hander Preston Claiborne has been claimed off waivers by the Marlins.

Claiborne has held his own as a big leaguer with a 3.79 ERA and 58/24 K/BB ratio in 71 career innings through age 26, so Miami probably views him as a potential middle relief option.

He was originally the Yankees’ 17th-round draft pick in 2010 and debuted in the majors in May of 2013.
