Theo Scoops Up Drake Britton Off Waivers

Britton (L), Epstein (R)
Theo Epstein took advantage of his knowledge of Drake Britton by scooping up the left-hander off waivers from the Red Sox. Epstein probably was instrumental in drafting the Texas native in the 23rd round of the 2007 draft—unless it was during his Gorilla Suit Period. Britton posted a 2.93 ERA in limited action over two seasons with Boston. The Cubs released Gonzalez Germen to make room for Britton on their 40-man roster.
