Relief pitcher Chad Beck, who pitched for Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun baseball team back in 2006, was designated for assignment by the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.

The move was made to create room on the roster for left-hander Tommy Hottovy, who the Blue Jays claimed off waivers from the Texas Rangers.

Toronto just recently re-claimed Beck only six days ago, after the Pittsburgh Pirates released him, after acquiring him off waivers back in October

The 27-year old right-hander spent the last four season with the Blue Jays’ organization, including parts of the last two seasons with the big league club.

Beck appeared in 14 games for Toronto in 2012, compiling a 6.32 ERA in 15.2 innings of work, all out of the bullpen, after going 2-0, with 18 saves, and a 1.31 ERA. at AAA Las Vegas.

Beck played briefly for the Blue Jays in 2011, throwing 2.1 scoreless innings in three outings.

Beck was drafted in the 14th round of the 2006 draft out of Louisiana by the Arizona Diamondbacks, who traded him to the Blue Jays in 2008 for infielder David Eckstein.
