Cubs claim Burnett

The Orioles lost reliever Alex Burnett on Monday, when the right-hander was claimed by the Chicago Cubs off waivers.

Burnett appeared in two games with the Orioles this year, giving up three runs on four hits and two walks over 1 1/3 innings. He was designated for assignment to clear a 40-man roster spot for rookie Kevin Gausman on Thursday.

Burnett was acquired on a waiver claim from Toronto after the Blue Jays claimed him from the Twins on March 29 and designated him for assignment.
