White Sox claim Kyle Drabek off waivers from Blue Jays

Dropped from the 40-man roster by the Blue Jays, former first-round draft pick Kyle Drabek has been claimed off waivers by the White Sox.

Drabek was once a top prospect and the Blue Jays acquired him from the Phillies in the Roy Halladay trade. However, injuries have derailed his career and Drabek is now 27 years old with just five total innings in the majors since 2013 and a 5.25 ERA at Triple-A.

He could find a home as a middle reliever.
