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