The Cubs have designated 25-year old lefty reliever Jeff Beliveau for assignment. Beliveau pitched in 22 games (0 starts) for the Cubs last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 1-0 with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.87 WHIP. He also pitched in 37 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Cubs last year and he was 4-5 with a 3.89 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. The Cubs should try to deal Beliveau, as he might get claimed off waivers.
UPDATE: (12/22/2012) – The Cubs have lost Jeff Beliveau on waivers to the Texas Rangers.
