Beck agreed to a minor-league contract with St. Louis on Friday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Beck will provide additional relief depth within the Cardinals' organization after appearing in 20 big-league games this past season split between the Mets and White Sox. He logged a 4.50 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with a poor 21:20 K:BB across 34 innings.
Beck was assigned to Triple-A Las Vegas after clearing waivers Thursday, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.
The recently DFA'd Beck will remain in the Mets' organization, but is no longer on the 40-man roster. He'll add depth to the Mets' Triple-A bullpen and could be an option to return to the big leagues later in the season.
Beck was designated for assignment by the Mets on Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Beck was bumped off the 40-man roster after accruing a 4.50 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with a 21:20 K:BB over 34 innings out of the bullpen. The move was made to accommodate Jerry Blevins' return from the bereavement list.
Beck was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Beck will fill a low-leverage role in the Mets' bullpen after being designated for assignment by the White Sox on Saturday. The 27-year-old's ERA sits at a respectable 4.18 after falling north of 6.00 in each of his first three big-league seasons, though his 6.02 FIP indicates that he isn't really pitching any better. His 14.7 percent career strikeout rate and 12.0 percent career walk rate don't give much reason for optimism. A corresponding move has not yet been announced.
Beck was designated for assignment Saturday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Beck will be bumped off the 40-man roster after appearing in 14 games out of the bullpen this season, posting a 4.18 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with 16 strikeouts across 23.2 innings. The transaction was made to make room for the return of Carlos Rodon (shoulder) who's slated to get the nod Saturday against Boston.
Beck had his contract purchased from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.
With Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) landing on the disabled list Monday, Beck was promoted to the big club to provide an additional arm capable of pitching multiple innings out of the bullpen. The 27-year-old owns a solid 2.00 ERA and 13:3 K:BB across four appearances -- including a pair of starts -- with Charlotte this season, so he could be an option to make a spot start while Gonzalez is sidelined. That said, his 6.40 ERA across 90 major-league innings over the previous two seasons should keep expectations in check if he does get a turn in the rotation. Danny Farquhar (head) was shifted to the 60-day disabled list in a corresponding move to clear a spot on the team's 40-man roster for Beck.
The White Sox reassigned Beck to minor league camp Friday.
Beck's struggles continued in spring training as he carried an 8.59 ERA and 2.18 WHIP over 7.1 innings. The 27-year-old had a disastrous 2017 campaign with a 6.40 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 42:34 K:BB across 64.2 innings for the White Sox, making it difficult to see another extended major-league opportunity in his near future.
Beck was outrighted off the White Sox's 40-man roster Monday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
The White Sox needed to clear a couple spots for promising young prospects ahead of the Rule 5 draft, and Beck was one of the roster casualties. It's hardly a surprise as Beck struggled to a 6.40 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 64.2 innings out of the Chicago bullpen in 2017, and the peripherals suggest things could have been even worse (6.84 FIP, 2.7 percent K-BB%). He throws pretty hard, but Beck may not make 50-plus appearances for a big-league team ever again after his showing this past season.
Beck (shoulder) is healthy and available for Friday's game against Texas, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
One day after a ball up the middle hit him in the shoulder and forced him to leave the game, Beck's bruising is down enough that it shouldn't cause him to miss any time. The bigger concern for Beck is his play of late, as he's given up 14 earned runs and four home runs over his last 9.0 innings.
Beck is considered day-to-day with a bruised right shoulder, Daryl Van Schouwen of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Beck came on in relief of an injured Reynaldo Lopez on Thursday and was hit by a comebacker off the bat of Adrian Beltre. He managed to stay in the game for one more batter, surrendering a home run to Nomar Mazara. Fortunately, Beck's injury isn't viewed as serious at this time and he figures to return to the mound in the coming days.
Beck (undisclosed) was removed from Thursday's game against the Rangers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
He was called upon to relieve Reynaldo Lopez but was then hit by a comebacker before giving up a home run to Nomar Mazara. Beck was replaced by Mike Pelfrey and the White Sox announced that they will have an update on him once more information is made available.
Beck has returned to action for the White Sox after suffering a minor knee injury last weekend.
His 3.23 ERA and 1.17 WHIP are solid marks, but his 22:13 K:BB in 30.2 innings illustrates his lack of upside, and likely regression over the rest of the season.
Beck left Sunday's game against the Athletics after being hit in the back of the left knee by a line drive, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
The ball off the bat of Oakland's Khris Davis caused enough pain that the White Sox felt it would be prudent to remove Beck. The team later announced that he is day-to-day with a bruised left hamstring. Beck doesn't normally enter in high-leverage situations but has a 3.21 ERA in 28 innings of relief this season.
Beck allowed one run on two hits with no walks and a strikeout over 1.1 innings in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Padres.
Beck is used mainly in middle-relief situations when the White Sox are trailing and will be called on to pitch multiple innings. Five of his six appearances have lasted longer than than three outs. With three bullpen regulars on the disabled list, Beck will remain on the roster until some of those injured bodies return.
Beck was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.
Beck will look to improve on 2016's underwhelming performance with the big club. Last season he posted a 6.39 ERA and 1.89 WHIP over 25.1 innings (25 games). Lefties were particularly challenging for Beck as they put together a .385 batting average against the 26-year-old.
Beck was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old's biggest hope of cracking the Opening Day roster was dwindling after being passed over by many of the White Sox's top starting pitching prospects, but Beck punched his ticket to the minor leagues by allowing nine earned runs on 13 hits in just 7.1 innings pitched this spring. He does have some major league experience to his name as well as a bit of success against Triple-A hitters, so he could wind up in the Windy City later this season.
Beck will be one of several relievers looking to fill out the White Sox bullpen in 2017.
Beck, a minor league starter who began to transition to the bullpen in 2016, had a couple of stints in Chicago's bullpen last season, but was barely perceptible on fantasy radars. Lefty batters raked against him (1.115 OPS) and his control was putrid (6.0 BB/9). The team is pretty much set in the rotation and has several recent draftees and prospects that have moved ahead of Beck in terms of starting depth. If he's to head north with the White Sox in April, it will be as a reliever.
Beck has been recalled by the White Sox on Friday from Triple-A Charlotte.
Beck has spent time with both Triple-A Charlotte and Chicago this season, pitching a combined 73 innings. Since being sent back down to Triple-A on July 10, Beck has pitched 10 innings, giving up just 3 runs while striking out 10. Beck has been used mainly as a reliever this year, starting only seven of his 28 appearances.
The White Sox have optioned Beck to Triple-A Charlotte after their game on Sunday against the Braves.
Beck has struggled in limited relief action with the White Sox this season, compiling an 8.10 ERA with seven walks in 6.2 innings. The 25-year-old will head back to Triple-A Charlotte where he's pitched in 15 games, starting seven and relieving eight.
Beck was recalled by the White Sox on Tuesday.
With Zach Putnam landing on the disabled list Tuesday, the White Sox recalled Beck to take his place out of the bullpen for the time being. Beck has worked as both a starter and a reliever at Triple-A Charlotte this season, so he could provide value as a long reliever should a Chicago starter fail to go deep into their respective outing. That said, Beck's numbers at Triple-A (4.47 ERA, 1.52 WHIP) don't inspire much confidence in his fantasy upside.
