Cubs claim Brett Marshall off waivers from Yankees

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.
