12/23 Roster moves

The Cubs claimed right-handed pitcher Brett Marshall from the Yankees on Monday while the Orioles claimed right-handed pitcher Liam Hendricks on waivers from the Cubs. Marshall, 23, made his Major League debut last season with three relief appearances in two stints for the Yankees. He spent the majority of the year with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, going 7-10 with a 5.13 ERA in 25 starts. The right-hander tied his career high with 120 strikeouts. Marshall had been designated for assignment last Thursday by the Yankees when they signed Carlos Beltran. In Marshall’s Major League debut in relief on May 15, he threw 108 pitches over 5 2/3 innings against the Mariners.

The Cubs had claimed Hendricks, 24, off waivers from the Twins on Dec. 13. In three seasons with Minnesota, he was a combined 2-13 in 30 games (28 starts) with a 6.06 ERA.
