Back on May 3, the Chicago Cubs claimed right-handed reliever Anthony Varvaro off waivers from the Red Sox. But a recent MRI revealed a torn flexor tendon in his pitching elbow and so the Cubs have returned him to Boston as damaged goods. Alex Speier of the Boston Globe explains

Varvaro is now on the disabled list with the Red Sox and won’t pitch again this season. The 30-year-old had an impressive 2.63 ERA, 1.079 WHIP, and 50/13 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings last summer with the Braves.
