Cubs claim Lavarnway, Peterson

The Cubs claimed catcher Ryan Lavarnway off waivers from the Dodgers and outfielder Shane Peterson off waivers from the Athletics. To make room on the 40-man roster, pitcher Donn Roach and infielder Logan Watkins were designated for assignment.

Lavarnway, 27, has spent the last seven seasons in the Red Sox organization, batting .299 in 25 games on the 2013 World Championship team. He was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on Dec. 5 but designated for assignment on Dec. 10. He missed more than two months last season with a left wrist strain and spent most of the year with Triple-A Pawtucket, batting .283 with three homers, 20 RBIs and a .389 on-base percentage in 62 games.

Theo Epstein knows him well. Lavarnway was a sixth-round pick out of Yale in the 2008 First-Year Player Draft by the Red Sox.

Peterson, 26, batted .308 with 40 doubles, 11 homers and 90 RBIs with Triple-A Sacramento last season, and earned Pacific Coast League midseason and postseason All Star honors. A left-handed hitter, he posted a .381 on-base percentage and a .460 slugging percentage. Peterson led the league in hits and doubles and ranked second with 101 runs scored.
