Tampa Bay deals for left-hander Beliveau

BALTIMORE -- The Rays acquired pitcher Jeff Beliveau from the Rangers on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations.

Beliveau is a 26-year old left-hander who has a 1-0 career record in 22 games, all in relief and all with the Cubs last season.

The Rangers picked up Beliveau on waivers from the Cubs on Dec. 21, 2012.

Texas had optioned Beliveau to Triple-A Round Rock, and the lefty was designated for assignment on April 8. He had made just one appearance for Round Rock this season, throwing two scoreless innings in an April 7 game vs. Omaha.
