Cubs claim RHP Moscoso off waivers

SURPRISE, Ariz. — The Chicago Cubs have claimed right-hander Guillermo Moscoso off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Cubs announced the move Wednesday.

Moscoso is 11-12 with a 4.16 ERA in 57 major league appearances, including 24 starts, with Texas, Oakland and Colorado.

He went 3-2 with a 6.12 ERA in 23 appearances, including three starts, last season with the Rockies.

Moscoso was with the Kansas City Royals at the beginning of spring training, but was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on March 16.

Logano, Hamlin exchange texts

HUMBLE, Texas — Roger Penske said Wednesday that Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin have exchanged text messages since their final-lap crash at Fontana last weekend that left Hamlin hospitalized with a fractured vertebra.

Penske said he’s also sent text messages to Hamlin, who is expected to miss at least six weeks.

Hamlin acknowledged he exchanged text messages with Logano. “It didn’t go well,” Hamlin told The Associated Press.

Hamlin was examined Tuesday by Dr. Jerry Petty of Carolina Neurosurgery and Spine Associates, who determined he won’t need back surgery.

“I’ve texted back and forth with him and said that we’re thinking about him,” Penske said. “Obviously, we’re hoping for a speedy recovery. It’s never good to have a driver out for a period of time.”

He didn’t know what Logano and Hamlin said to one another in their text messages. The former Gibbs Racing teammates had a prickly relationship long before Sunday’s wreck. Logano replaced Tony Stewart at JGR in 2009, and signs of a rift between he and Hamlin surfaced after the Daytona 500, when the two exchanged barbs on Twitter.
