The Chicago Cubs claimed pitcher Jairo Asencio off waivers from the Cleveland Indians and designated reliever Michael Bowden for assignment Friday.

Ascencio, 28, had a 5.96 ERA in 18 games with 21 strikeouts in 25 2/3 innings with the Indians this season. He will replace Bowden, a Waubonsie Valley High School product who was sent to Chicago in the Marlon Byrd trade with the Boston Red Sox.

Bowden has a 7.45 ERA in 10 games with the Cubs.
