Blue Jays sign LHP Jeff Beliveau

Blue Jays reportedly sign LHP Jeff Beliveau to a minor league contract. Beliveau was drafted in the 18th round by the Chicago Cubs of the 2008 amateur draft, but didn’t make his major league debut until July of 2012. He did not pitch in the majors the entire 2016 season as he split time between the A and AA affiliates of the Baltimore Orioles. During that time, he had a 4-0 record with a 2.54 ERA. This is good, but expect his numbers to be inflated if he returns to the major league level. This could be a good acquisition for the Blue Jays if he can prove himself in spring training. The Jays are lacking talent in the bullpen, especially left handers, so having Beliveau on the roster come Opening Day would be beneficial.

The Blue Jays should still look at signing Jerry Blevins and some other top relievers. They have some  money to spend and their bullpen is in diar need of a revamp.
