The Giants' decision to add Beede to the 40-man roster will protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Beede got his first taste of Triple-A ball last season, as he spent the season at Triple-A Sacramento. He started 19 games and pitched 109 innings and ended the year with a 4.79 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.
Beede (groin) took the hill Tuesday at the Arizona Fall League, the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman reports.
Beede suffered a significant groin injury in late July, which ended his 2017 season before he got the chance to make an appearance with the big-league club. The right-hander was able to toss two innings against Salt River on Tuesday, allowing five earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out one. But more importantly, he was finally able to get back into the swing of things, and should be fine moving forward.
Beede (groin) is expected to miss the rest of the season, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
It's unfortunate timing for Beede, who was expected to be a part of late-season call-ups for the struggling Giants, but instead departs for the team's spring training facility in Arizona to begin rehab. The coveted prospect suffered the injury while warming up for a start with Triple-A Sacramento -- where he owns a 4.79 ERA over 19 starts this season. There still remains a possibility Beede could be back by late-September, though it appears he's more likely to make his next appearance in the upcoming Arizona Fall League.
Beede was scratched from Monday's scheduled start with Triple-A Sacramento due to a groin injury, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The pitching prospect reportedly incurred the injury during pregame warmups, although the exact nature and severity of the issue are currently unknown. Consider him day-to-day for the time being. Prior to this setback, Beede held a 4.79 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP in 19 starts for the River Cats.
The Giants are in need of another starter with Bumgarner sidelined for several weeks, and they could decide to turn to Beede, one of the club's top prospects, and who is also on the same rest schedule as Bumgarner. Expect the team to reveal who will get the nod to replace Bumgarner at some point in the near future.
