Tyler Beede’s rocky performance in a Triple-A bullpen last summer didn’t merit a September call-up. This summer, though, the 26-year-old right-hander from Auburn, Mass., and Lawrence Academy has been a revelation.
After a recent string of impressive starts at the big-league level around the MLB All-Star break, Beede has emerged as a promising fixture in the San Francisco Giants rotation this season.
Since being recalled from an early season stint back in Triple A, Beede has made eight starts for the Giants, posting a 3-2 record and 4.23 ERA with 40 strikeouts over 44 2/3 innings. He earned his first major-league win June 17 in a sensational start at Dodger Stadium (one run over six innings with seven strikeouts), and he’s won his last two outings with quality starts in which he hasn’t walked a batter. Beede also recorded his first major-league hit May 30.
Beede shared his thoughts on his recent stretch — and his recent personal loss — with New England Baseball Journal after the All-Star break but before his start Sunday at Milwaukee, where he struck out seven over 6 2/3 innings, allowed just three runs and no walks and posted two hits of his own.
