Beede (elbow) played catch Monday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Beede has a long road ahead of him, but it's certainly a positive to see him take the first step. He underwent the procedure back in March, so a typical recovery timeline would see him able to return to game action sometime around the midpoint of the 2021 campaign.
The Giants placed Beede (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Sunday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. The transaction is merely procedural, as Beede has already been ruled out for the 2020 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March. His move to the 60-day IL opens up an extra spot on the 40-man roster for the Giants.
Beede (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Friday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Beede was diagnosed with a flexor strain and a UCL sprain in his throwing elbow during spring training, and his second opinion that he received Monday revealed that the injury will require Tommy John surgery. After recording a 5.08 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in nearly a full season of major-league work last season, Beede will now face a recovery timeline that will keep him sidelined for all of 2020 and likely part of the 2021 season.
Beede will receive a second opinion on his elbow from Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Beede was diagnosed with both a flexor strain and a UCL strain in his right elbow Tuesday. He appears to be lined up for a lengthy absence, and his path forward should become clearer after Monday's visit. Dr. ElAttrache's name is nearly as synonymous with Tommy John surgery as that of fellow doctor James Andrews, though it's not yet clear if that procedure will be necessary.
Beede's MRI on Tuesday revealed both a flexor strain and a UCL sprain in his right elbow, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The Giants will have more information involving a timetable for Beede's return later this week. Although elbow injuries are very problematic for pitchers, the fact that the 26-year-old avoided any tears or structural damage to his right elbow is encouraging. If Beede is forced to miss an extended period of time to begin the regular season, Logan Webb and Tyson Ross are primary candidates to fill the No. 5 spot in San Francisco's starting rotation.
