BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Ticketed as a reliever very early in his minor-league career, and honored as the Cubs' Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2011, Beliveau finally got his shot at the majors last year and did nothing impressive with it. Because he has the gift of being left-arm dominant, he's likely to get a few more chances and may even stick somewhere as a LOOGY, but it's looking unlikely that he finds himself as that rara avis, the lefty reliever who can pitch well against right-handers. The Rangers claimed him off waivers.
2012 Jeff Beliveau has 18th-round stuff, but the lefty is crafty enough to befuddle minor-leaguers, and he'll get a chance soon to try it in the bigs.
2011 Never trust a big butt and smile, but Jeff Beliveau is only poison to lefty batters, striking out 38 percent of them at Daytona.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Can you believe that Craig unfollowed me when I got to 420 followers? The nerve of some people. Anyway, with Matt Moore hurt, do you have any clue who will take his rotations spot or how worth it they would be to own? Also important, why is no one paying me to talk baseball? Thanks for all the answers, Kevin
(Kevin Brown from New York)
I can absolutely believe that. I think Jeff Beliveau will take his spot but I wouldn't go heavy on him. I think Odorizzi's stock goes up though. (Mauricio Rubio)
