Beede was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Beede gave up eight runs over 2.1 innings during Friday's spot start, but won't be needed for another turn through the rotation with Derek Holland (finger) set to spend the 10-day minimum on the injured list. The 25-year-old will hope to pick up where he left off at Sacramento, where he posted a 1.99 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 34:10 K:BB across 22.2 innings.
Beede allowed eight runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three over 2.1 innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Friday.
The right-hander had been on an impressive run at Triple-A Sacramento but could not carry that momentum in his first major-league start of 2019 (third career). While he looked decent at times -- Beede was sitting mid-90s with his fastball early on and induced quite a few empty swings; he made several mistakes, and Derek Dietrich made him pay with a pair of long balls. Incredibly, the Giants rallied and won the game in extras. Beede may get another start with Derek Holland (finger) on the injured list, but he would line up to pitch in Colorado next week, and that matchup takes him out of the conversation in most leagues.
Beede was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento for his scheduled start Friday against Cincinnati.
The length of Beede's stay on the roster could depend on how quickly Derek Holland can return from his finger injury. Beede fared poorly in two starts for the Giants in 2018, lasting a combined 7.2 innings while allowing seven runs. He's been far better in five starts for Sacramento this year, posting a 1.99 ERA and a 37.4 percent strikeout rate. Erik Kratz (hamstring) landed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Beede will be called up from Triple-A Sacramento to start Friday's game at Cincinnati, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Beede was reported to be the top candidate for the spot start Friday and manager Bruce Bochy made it official prior to Wednesday's game. The 25-year-old has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season through 22.2 innings with the Rivers Cats and has a 1.99 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 34:10 K:BB in five starts.
Beede will likely be recalled from Triple-A to start Friday's game against the Dodgers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The Giants called Ty Blach up from Triple-A Sacramento after Derek Holland (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list, but it looks as though Beede is the favorite to make a spot start in Holland's absence. Beede owns a 1.99 ERA with a 34:10 K:BB over 22.2 innings with the River Cats in 2019.
