Beede was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Thursday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Beede was designated for assignment by the Giants last week and will now join the Pirates. The right-hander has a 4.66 ERA, 2.07 WHIP and 6:4 K:BB over 9.2 innings this season out of the bullpen.
Beede was designated for assignment by the Giants on Thursday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Beede made six relief appearances for the Giants over the first month of the season, and he posted a 4.66 ERA and 2.07 WHIP in 9.2 innings. The 28-year-old will now lose his spot on the 40-man roster after giving up two runs in 1.1 innings during Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.
Beede surrendered two runs on three hits and a walk with one strikeout over 1.1 innings in Wednesday's 9-1 loss to the Dodgers. Beede has allowed runs in four of his six outings this season, and he's given up multiple hits in each of his last five appearances. The right-hander now has a 4.66 ERA, 2.07 WHIP and 4:6 K:BB through 9.2 innings. He should continue to see only low-leverage work as he attempts to cut down on the number of baserunners he allows.
Beede walked three and struck out two over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 13-2 win over the Padres. Beede didn't have to be sharp with the Giants carrying a big lead. He threw just 15 of his 35 pitches for strikes in his season debut. The right-hander is with the Giants to begin the season as a multi-inning reliever, though he's viewed as a potential starter should an opening in the rotation surface. Beede didn't pitch in the majors last year after he recovered from Tommy John surgery. He posted a 6.66 ERA, 1.97 WHIP and 50:45 K:BB in 48.2 innings with Triple-A Sacramento. Given that high walk rate, it'll be important to keep an eye on his control as he progresses through the season.
Beede was informed by the Giants on Wednesday he's made the Opening Day roster, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Beede had a 5.08 ERA over 117 innings for the Giants in 2019 but missed the following campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery, and he returned to the mound with Triple-A Sacramento last year. The 28-year-old was reportedly throwing up to 98 mph during spring training, though he still surrendered six earned runs across 4.2 frames. San Francisco has five solidified starters in its rotation, but Beede could work as the sixth man of the group if the Giants elect to go that route.
