Cubs signed RHP Joseph Gardner to a minor league contract; assigned him to Double-A Tennessee.

Gardner was released by the Rockies at the end of spring training after struggling in 2013 at Double-A Tulsa. The 26-year-old righty was a third-round pick in 2009.

Rockies sent RHP Joseph Gardner outright to Double-A Tulsa.

Gardner was designated for assignment earlier this week but has cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. It's no surprise, given his 7.01 ERA at Tulsa this season.

Rockies designated RHP Joseph Gardner for assignment.

The move was made to clear room on the 40-man roster for Mitchell Boggs. Gardner holds a 7.01 ERA at Double-A Tulsa this season and should pass through waivers unclaimed.

Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Joseph Gardner from Double-A Tulsa.

Acquired in the Ubaldo Jimenez deal, Gardner posted a 3.97 ERA with 99 strikeouts over 138 1/3 Double-A frames this season. He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.

Rockies acquired RHPs Joe Gardner and Alex White, 1B-OF Matt McBride and a player to be named later from the Indians for RHP Ubaldo Jimenez.

Gardner, a 2009 third-round pick, has a 4.99 ERA over 19 starts with Double-A Akron this season, averaging 5.5 K/9 and 4.3 BB/9. Baseball America ranked the 23-year-old as the Indians' No. 9 prospect coming into the season. If he doesn't make it as a starter, his ground ball tendencies could be quite useful out of the bullpen in Colorado.
