As first reported by’s Carrie Muskat, the Cubs have claimed right-handed reliever Kameron Loe off waivers from the Mariners. Backup catcher Steve Clevenger was put on the 60-day disabled list with an oblique strain to clear a roster spot.

Loe was designated for assignment by Seattle late last week after allowing 11 hits, one walk and eight earned runs over his first 6 2/3 innings. The 31-year-old had a cool 3.61 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 229 1/3 innings between 2008-2012 with the Rangers and Brewers, and should have something left in the tank.

Loe will operate as a middle reliever in Chicago’s bullpen, which has been a disaster this year.

    Im starting to doubt the Cubs ever winning the world series again. Heres to another one hundred and however many years.

    Really, this is the move that leads you to believe this? Or more accurately you’re just some pathetic troll desperately searching for some attention you’re sorely lacking from real human beings.

    Its called being a Cardinals fan, we hate the Cubs.

    Little hypocritical are we? Considering you posted as well.

    What other moves have they made in last 2 years to make you think this…Don’t you realize this team is in flux until 2015? Huge changes by then…look at their minor league system. Your noted hatred for them makes it all slanted..

    How this guy still can get a job anywhere is beyond me. Might as well bring him back to milwaukee and have the old “Loe/Axford” dynamic duo back
