The Blue Jays have signed pitcher Jeff Beliveau to a minor league contract.
The lefty also has a sweet invite to spring training this year. Beliveau played for Tampa Bay from 2013-2015, with 2015 being a year he’d particularly like to forget. Only pitching in five games that year, the soon-to-be 30 year old chalked up an ERA of 13.50. While he showed some promise with the Cubs Single-A affiliate this past season, it’s doubtful we’ll see a whole lot of him back on the major league stage.
Here’s what else is happening around the American League East:
Baltimore has signed catcher Welington Castillo to a one-year contract.

Don’t know what to get the Blue Jay fan that has everything? This stained glass window of Edwin Encarnacion’s bat flip should suffice.
Pablo Sandoval is chugging along on his journey to be a healthier, more agile, and all around better Red Sox. But is he really making progress towards being great or just keeping up with league averages?
The Yankees would like to reacquire Justin Wilson, please and thank you. Their bullpen could stand to use the depth.
The Rays are after the offensive stylings of Franklin Gutierrez, who is arguably the best free agent bat currently on the market.
