(2:33 pm ET) The Cubs have claimed pitcher Anthony Varvaro off waivers from the Red Sox and designated pitcher Joe Ortiz for assignment, the team announced Sunday.

Varvaro made nine appearances with the Red Sox before hitting waivers, giving up five earned runs in 11 innings while striking out eight batters and walking six.

Yankees Brett Gardner: Alex Rodriguez is 'all business'
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2:06 pm ET) Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner isn't surprised by Alex Rodriguez's approach this season. 

"He’s been all business since he’s been back," Gardner said, per the Journal News. "Last year, obviously, was very, very tough for him, and tough for a lot of people, but I think ever since he’s come back he’s been all about working hard and trying to help the team win."

That's in keeping with what Gardner has seen from A-Rod in the time the two have been teammates. 

"I’ve had a chance over the last eight or nine years to really see behind the scenes and what goes into his preparation for the game, and the way that he works in the offseason. He doesn’t need to go out of his way to try to win me over," Gardner said.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
