MESA, Ariz. -- Chicago Cubs pitchers Brooks Raley and Brett Marshall have been picked up off of waivers by the Minnesota Twins and Cincinnati Reds, respectively, the team announced on Tuesday.

Both players were on the 40-man roster so their losses pave the way for the Cubs to sign pitchers Jason Hammel and James McDonald. Both have been rumored to be joining the Cubs for some time.

Raley, 25, was 1-2 with a 7.04 ERA in parts of two seasons with the Cubs while Marshall moves on after the Cubs claimed him in December.

Hammel and McDonald are expected to be with the Cubs when spring training workouts begin on Friday.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs have claimed pitcher Brett Marshall off waivers from the New York Yankees, the Cubs announced Monday.

The Cubs also lost pitcher Liam Hendriks, who was claimed by the Baltimore Orioles. The Cubs had claimed Hendriks off waivers from the Minnesota Twins on Dec. 13.

Marshall, a 23-year-old right-hander, made his major league debut last season, making three relief appearances over two stints with the Yankees and allowing six earned runs in 12 innings. He spent most of last year with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, going 7-10 with a 5.13 ERA in 25 starts.

A sixth-round draft pick by the Yankees in 2008, Marshall is 36-32 with a 4.07 ERA in 115 minor league appearances and 113 starts.
