CHICAGO (WSCR) The Chicago White Sox have claimed left-handed pitcher Leyson Septimo off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks, the team announced on Monday.

Originally signed as a free agent on February 19, 2003, Septimo was selected to participate in the 2009 All-Star Futures Game and named to the 2010 midseason Southern League All-Star Team.

In four years in the Diamondbacks’ farm system, Septimo racked up 14 saves and 192 strikeouts in 135 appearances. He had a 5.79 ERA over 172.2 innings pitched.
