Rangers claim Jeff Beliveau off waivers from Cubs

Jeff Curry-US PRESSWIRE

The left-hander appeared in 22 games, recording 17.2 innings pitched, a 1-0 record and a 4.58 ERA.

The Texas Rangers claimed left-handed pitcher Jeff Beliveau from the Chicago Cubs on Friday, according to Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas.

Originally drafted in the 18th round of the 2008 amateur draft by the Cubs, Beliveau rose to become the 2011 Minor League Pitcher of the Year for the organization before eventually making his MLB debut in July 2012. He appeared in 22 games, recording 17.2 innings pitched, a 1-0 record and 4.58 ERA.

Beliveau was dropped from the 40-man roster of the Cubs recently so the team could make room for the return of third baseman Ian Stewart. In 55 games, Stewart recorded a .201 average with 17 runs batted in.

Also on Friday, the San Francisco Giants claimed right-handed pitcher Sandy Rosario after the Cubs claimed him earlier in the month. Rosario played three seasons with the Marlins, but pitched in just 10 combined games and 7.2 innings, posting a 15.26 ERA.
