Diamondbacks Claim Alex Sanabia

The Diamondbacks have claimed pitcher Alex Sanabia off waivers from the Marlins, according to a team press release. Sanabia, 25, posted a 4.88 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 4.1 BB/9 in 55 1/3 innings out of the Marlins rotation this season. In late May, the Marlins placed Sanabia on the disabled list with a groin injury, and he did not appear again in 2013. He has a 4.15 ERA in parts of three big-league seasons.

Sanabia is a fly ball pitcher whose fastball typically comes in at around 90 MPH, and he has never posted impressive strikeout rates, so his upside appears to be somewhat limited. Teams typically value pitchers who are capable of making big-league starts, however, particularly when they aren't yet arbitration-eligible.
