LHP Gaub claimed by Rangers

LHP John Gaub was claimed off waivers by the Rangers.

The Rays had claimed Gaub off waivers from the Cubs on April 5, and the 27-year-old was working middle relief for Triple-A Durham, going 0-1, 4.32 with one save in 16 2/3 innings over 16 games.

The Rays took him off the 40-man roster Monday to make room for the addition of INF Drew Sutton, who was acquired from Pittsburgh's Triple-A team to fill the void created by Jeff Keppinger's injury. Gaub had four big-league appearances with the Cubs in 2011.

The Rangers optioned Gaub to Triple-A Round Rock.
