O's claim righty Hendriks off waivers from Cubs

The Orioles have claimed right-hander Liam Hendriks off waivers from the Cubs before he could throw a pitch in the Chicago organization.

The Cubs claimed Hendriks from the Twins on Dec. 13.

He appeared in 10 games (eight starts) for the Twins in 2013, going 1-3 with a 6.85 ERA in 47 1/3 innings. He also made 16 starts for Triple-A Rochester.

Hendriks was signed by the Twins as an international free agent in '07, and would be the third Australian-born Oriole in club history (John Stephens in '02 and Damian Moss in '03) if he makes it to the Majors with Baltimore.

Over six seasons in the Twins' Minor League system, Hendriks went 42-28 with a 2.99 ERA in 100 games (98 starts).
