The Chicago Cubs claimed Baltimore Orioles reliever Alex Burnett on waivers Monday and he will take Kyuji Fujikawa's spot on the roster.

Burnett, a right-hander, has a 4.73 career earned-run average in 176 appearances for Minnesota and Baltimore.

Fujikawa will be placed on the 15-day disabled list later Monday.

The reliever told the Japanese media on Sunday he felt a snap in his elbow on a pitch to the Reds' Joey Votto.
