3/16 Cubs claim De La Cruz
The Cubs have claimed right-handed pitcher Frankie De La Cruz from the Brewers. In three games with Milwaukee this spring, De La Cruz has given up eight runs on seven hits and three walks over 3 1/3 innings. He’s been added to the Cubs 40-man roster and will compete for a spot in the bullpen. The Brewers had hoped De La Cruz would clear waivers and start at Triple-A Nashville. Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio knows the right-hander well.
