Blue Jays reassigned LHPs Jeff Beliveau, Chad Girodo, and Tim Mayza, and RHPs Leonel Campos and Casey Lawrence to minor league camp.

He made his return from labrum surgery last year while posting a 2.54 ERA and 66/29 K/BB ratio over 49 2/3 innings between the Orioles' High-A and Double-A affiliates. Mar 28 - 12:57 PM

Blue Jays signed LHP Jeff Beliveau to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Beliveau, who turns 30 in January, split last season between the Orioles' High-A and Double-A affiliates while posting a 2.54 ERA and 66/29 K/BB ratio over 49 2/3 innings in his first year back from shoulder surgery. He has previously appeared in the majors with the Rays and Cubs and could be in the mix for a bullpen spot at some point in 2017 if he can prove his health and effectiveness.

Jeff Beliveau appeared in a game Monday for the first time since undergoing labrum surgery, pitching a scoreless frame on the minor-league side.

Beliveau is two years removed from posting a 2.63 ERA with the Tampa Bay Rays, including a 10.50 K/9, so he still has a chance to be a useful big-league reliever. For now, he's been sent to the minors and will try to earn his way back into relevance.

Orioles re-assigned LHP Jeff Beliveau and OF Alfredo Marte to minor league camp.

Beliveau entered spring camp behind the rest of the bullpen hopefuls as he recovered from shoulder surgery, and just didn't have enough time to secure a spot. He'll get his opportunity with the Orioles at some point during the upcoming season.

Jeff Beliveau (shoulder) threw another bullpen session Thursday without issue.

He should soon move on to facing live hitters. Beliveau entered Orioles camp this spring on a bit of a delay as he continues to recover from last year's shoulder surgery. The left-hander is still hoping to claim a spot in Baltimore's Opening Day bullpen, but it probably won't happen.

Jeff Beliveau (shoulder) is slated to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

Beliveau is slightly behind the other hurlers in camp as he returns from shoulder surgery. While the club plans to bring him along slowly, he does not currently have any restrictions. He's looking to secure a spot in the club's Opening Day bullpen.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Thursday that Jeff Beliveau (shoulder) is not a full-go yet.

Beliveau underwent surgery last April to repair a labrum tear in his left shoulder. That kind of procedure usually comes with a 12-month recovery timetable, and some pitchers never make it back to full strength. Beliveau is doubtful to make the Opening Day bullpen, even if he suddenly catches up with the other relievers in Orioles camp.

Orioles signed LHP Jeff Beliveau to a minor league contract.

The 28-year-old southpaw is expected to receive an invitation to spring training as well, and could have a chance to compete for a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. Beliveau owns a 4.00 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 47/21 K/BB ratio over 45 innings in his big league career.

Jeff Beliveau has elected free agency.

He refused an outright assignment by the Rays and will now look for a gig elsewhere. Beliveau put up a 3.62 ERA over 36 relief appearances across the last three seasons for the Rays while striking out over a batter per frame. He shouldn't have trouble finding work.

Rays activated LHP Jeff Beliveau from the 60-day disabled list.

Beliveau underwent surgery early last season to repair a torn left labrum and isn't expected to be ready until midseason. The 28-year-old had a 2.63 ERA in 24 relief innings with the Rays in 2013.
Thu, Nov 5, 2015 05:10:00 PM

Rays transferred LHP Jeff Beliveau from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

They also announced that Beliveau would undergo surgery to repair a torn left labrum. It's an operation that's going to knock the southpaw reliever out for the remainder of the season.

Jeff Beliveau was diagnosed with a left shoulder impingement following an MRI.

Beliveau has been dealing with an arm issue dating back to spring training and was placed on the disabled list over the weekend. He expects to know more about a timetable after seeing the team doctor Wednesday.

Rays placed LHP Jeff Beliveau on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury.

He first began dealing with a "dead arm" in spring training and said Friday that it's yet to go away. Riefenhauser has been recalled to replace Beliveau on the roster.
Fri, Apr 17, 2015 03:53:00 PM

Jeff Beliveau has been diagnosed with a mild left lat strain.

Beliveau left Saturday's Japan Series game after 1 1/3 innings. He'll be evaluated later Saturday, but there's no reason to push him and risk further injury for what amounts to an exhibition. His Japan Series is likely over, but he should still be fine for the start of spring training.
Sat, Nov 15, 2014 05:01:00 PM

Jeff Beliveau was removed from Saturday's game in the Japan Series after 1 1/3 innings.

It's unclear at the moment if he was pulled as a precautionary measure or if he sustained some sort of injury, but was shown stretching his left side. The team should provide an update on his status once more information is known.
