On the highly anticipated tender/non-tender day in the MLB, the Cubs have claimed RHP Robert Stock off waivers from the Boston Red Sox.
The 31-year-old appeared in ten games for the Red Sox during the shortened 2020 season, compiling an 0-1 record, 4.73 ERA, 1.95 WHIP, and 14 strikeouts over 13.1 innings.
Over the course of his career, Stock has pitched in 52 games, compiling 63.2 innings, a 2-2 record, a 4.24 ERA, 67 strikeouts, and a 1.54 WHIP.
Prior to joining the Red Sox in 2020, Stock spent 2018 and 2019 with the San Diego Padres. Stock was a second-round pick in 2009 by the St. Louis Cardinals, but he spent time with the Houston Astros, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Cincinnati Reds before debuting with the Padres. The Philadelphia Phillies claimed Stock off waivers in 2019, but the righty never made an appearance with the parent club.
