|Cubs Claim OF Neal Off Waivers From Yankees
|CHICAGO (AP)--The Chicago Cubs have claimed outfielder Thomas Neal off waivers from the New York Yankees and transferred pitcher Rafael Dolis to the 60-day disabled list.
Neal hit .325 with two home runs and 29 RBIs in 72 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He had his contract selected by the Yankees on June 14 and played in four games with the Yankees in two big league stints, collecting two hits in 11 at-bats. He was designated for assignment on Friday.
Dolis has been on the disabled list since June 1 because of a strained right forearm. He has no record or ERA in five relief appearances with the Cubs this season.
The moves were announced on Monday.
