Beliveau (BELL-uh-voh), 30, split the 2017 season between AAA Buffalo and the Toronto Blue Jays, posting a 3.04 ERA in 29 games with the Bisons (50.1IP, 34H, 17ER, 60SO, .193 avg). He appeared in 19 games in relief with Toronto from June 5-July 21, his first appearance in the Majors since left shoulder surgery in April 2015 after 5 outings with Tampa Bay.

The Valera, Venezuela native limited Triple-A hitters to a .171 (20-117) average against with Buffalo and compiled a 2.64 ERA across 13.2 innings with Toronto (4ER, 13.2IP). He was signed to his first professional contract by the San Diego Padres in 2010 and debuted with the Friars in 2014 and was later claimed on waivers by the Blue Jays in November 2016.

Maggi, 28, was Pittsburgh's 15th round selection in the 2010 draft out of Arizona State and has spent the last two years in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, earning a spot on the 2016 Texas League All-Star team at AA Tulsa. He spent the entire 2017 season at AAA Oklahoma City, batting .271 (69-255) in 84 games, appearing in 36 games at third base, 28 games at second and 18 games at shortstop.
