#Cubs Jokisch claimed by Marlins

Eric Jokisch, 26, was claimed off waivers by the Marlins on Thursday. The left-hander, who was drafted in the 11th round in 2010, spent the majority of the last two seasons at Triple-A Iowa.

Lefty Tyler Ihrig was promoted from Class A Myrtle Beach to Iowa to take Jokisch’s spot. He made one spot start for Iowa last May 12, and gave up two runs off five hits over five innings.

Left-handed pitcher Giovanni Soto also reported to Iowa Thursday. The Cubs acquired him from the Indians for cash on April 11.
