He's had both shoulder and elbow issues in the past, but was given a clean bill of health recently by Dr. James Andrews. Beimel will likely be relegated to organizational depth for the major league bullpen. The veteran hasn't played in a game this season.

Beimel earned his first save since June, 2009, with Washington. He's been with three MLB teams since then.
"I was very amped," Beimel said to MLB.com. "With the second hitter, I actually had to step back a little bit and realize, 'Hey, you're in the game right now and still pitching. Don't let the adrenaline overtake you and control you.' If you use adrenaline, it's good. But if you let it run you and you're throwing pitches up there you're not supposed to be throwing, it's not a good thing."

"I've never experienced anything like this, it's pretty crazy," Beimel said to MLB.com. "It's pretty crazy, every ball is either falling in or I'm making bad pitches. I've got to get it going soon, I've got to get a few outs. In 2008, I had my worst Spring Training up until this year and it was one of my best seasons. Maybe luck will turn in my favor."

His numbers withstanding, what he brings to that bullpen is experience and gives it a calming effect down there."
