CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs have claimed left-hander Joseph Ortiz off waivers from the Texas Rangers.

The 24-year-old Ortiz missed much of last season due to a broken left foot. He was limited to 15 minor league appearances after he went 2-2 with a 4.23 ERA in 32 games for Texas in 2013.

The Cubs announced the move on Monday, which fills out their 40-man roster.
