The Chicago Cubs claimed right-handed pitcher Miguel Socolovich off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, and optioned him to Triple-A Iowa. In a corresponding move, catcher Blake Lalli was designated for assignment. In three different stints with the Orioles in 2012, Socolovich posted a 6.97 ERA in six relief appearances. He was designated for assignment on Aug. 14.
