The Rangers have claimed Edwar Cabrera off waivers from the Rockies, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post (on Twitter). Cabrera was expected to be removed from Colorado's 40-man roster this offseason.
Cabrera was sidelined all season with a shoulder injury. The left-hander made two big league starts for the Rockies in 2012 but spent the rest of the season in the minors. In 21 combined starts for the club's Triple-A and Double-A affiliates, Cabrera posted a 3.05 ERA with 8.4 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9.
The Rockies dropped another pitcher from the 40-man roster earlier today when they outrighted Manny Corpas.
