Chicago Cubs claim Sandy Rosario off waivers from Boston Red Sox

Adding to their possible options for next year's bullpen, the Cubs claimed right-hander Sandy Rosario off waivers from Boston on Wednesday.

The Chicago Cubs claimed right-handed pitcher Sandy Rosario off waivers from the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. The 27-year-old has been on the move multiple times already this offseason, moving from Miami to Boston to Oakland, then back to Boston before Chicago's claim.

With all of those aforementioned moves coming in just a few months, Rosario has clearly been a desired man. Teams keep letting him go, but the fact that he's constantly being snapped up is also somewhat of a testament to his on-field potential.

While Rosario never succeeded in his three MLB stints, giving up 13 runs over 7.2 innings, he performed quite well in the minor leagues this year. In 26 innings with Triple-A New Orleans, Rosario allowed just four runs (three earned) while posting a dazzling 24-to-2 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

In Chicago, he'll presumably be given a chance to compete for a bullpen role.
