CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs today claimed left-handed pitcher Randy Rosario off waivers from the Minnesota Twins. Chicago’s 40-man roster now stands at 33 players.

Rosario, 23, combined to go 1-0 with one save and a 3.84 ERA (26 ER/61.0 IP) in 34 relief appearances last year between Single-A Fort Myers and Double-A Chattanooga. He struck out 48 batters and walked 23 in 61.0 innings. With Chattanooga, he limited left-handed hitters to a .169 batting average against. Rosario turned in a 0.66 ERA (1 ER/13.2 IP) in six relief outings with Chattanooga in May to earn his first big league call-up on June 1 but allowed eight runs in 2.1 innings (30.86 ERA) covering two relief appearances and returned to Chattanooga on June 10.

A native of Nagua, Dominican Republic, Rosario originally signed with the Twins as a non-drafted free agent on November 20, 2010. He has gone 18-22 with two saves and a 3.37 ERA (132 ER/352.2 IP) in 107 minor league appearances (55 starts) covering the last seven seasons in the Twins minor league system.
