Chicago Cubs Pitcher Goes Unclaimed On Waivers; Sent Outright

It's surprising no team put in a claim for him.

As a result, the Chicago Cubs have sent pitcher Anthony Kay outright to Triple-A Iowa.

The twenty-seven-year-old southpaw passed through waivers unclaimed after he was designated for assignment earlier last week.

Over the last four seasons, Kay recorded a poor 5.48 ERA in seven starts and 21 relief appearances for the Toronto Blue Jays. 

In the minors this past season, Kay compiled an underwhelming 5.48 ERA, 1.64 WHIP, and 23 strikeouts over 21.1 innings of work. In four starts and nine relief appearances, the twenty-seven-year-old held a 1-3 record.

He'll continue to function as rotation depth for the Cubs at Triple-A and will likely get a chance in the majors at some point during the season. 

Kay is a former first-round pick by the New York Mets in the 2016 MLB Draft.
