Beede to make MLB debut, start tonight

MLB.com @sfgiantsbeat

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants announced after their 2-1 loss to the D-backs that right-hander Tyler Beede will make his Major League debut Tuesday night when he starts the second game of the series.

Beede's arrival briefly caused apparent consternation among the Giants' decision-makers, who couldn't immediately settle on dates for Beede's assignment and for Johnny Cueto's next start. The state of Cueto's ankle, which he tweaked in his previous outing, apparently became an issue, as did Beede's scheduling. Cueto will start Wednesday's series finale, the Giants announced.

Beede's recall will become official Tuesday. The Giants' initial motivation for summoning him was to keep the rotation's other starters on their regular four days' rest.

Beede said before Monday's game, "All I know at this point [is] I've got my spikes on and I'll get ready for whenever they call my name."

Beede, 24, was San Francisco's No. 1 selection in the 2014 Draft (14th overall). Due to inclement weather in Tacoma, where Sacramento opened its season, the Giants sent Beede to join Class A Advanced San Jose to prevent him from getting too much rest. He pitched a five-inning one-hitter last Thursday against Inland Empire at San Bernardino, allowing one run while walking three and striking out four. MLB Pipeline ranked Beede fourth among the organization's top 30 prospects.
