DateQuestionAnswer
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)What's the best baseball prank you've seen or heard about?
(Rob from Brighton, MA)
I'll tell you the story, but don't repeat it. When Blake Beavan was coming up in the Rangers minor league system, he had to deal with the reality that the mid-90s gas he had in high school wasn't a part of his professional repertoire. He obviously wanted it to re-merge, but he became a better pitcher for it and now he's a major league arm.

This is a secondhand story, but it comes from a vey reliable source and I've confirmed it with other eye witnesses to the event. One night, former number one pick Kasey Kiker was charting Beavan's start, and he kept a second chart in order to pull off this prank. He filled the extra chart with fastballs in the mid-90s, and when Beavan showed up after the start to see how he threw, Kiker informed him that he was dealing with the fastball, working it back into his high school mid-90s level. Beavan, always the cocky pitcher, had a bounce in his step with the affirmation that his once dead velo had risen from the grave, just as he had predicted.

Beavan is feeling good, and goes to take a shower. When he returns, Kiker puts the real chart on his locker and makes a point to tell him that the chart he originally showed him was bogus and that he was still the same 90-91 pitcher he had been as a pro. Beavan's mood was crushed. Kiker was rolling. Cruel joke. Its one of my favorite Kiker stories, and I have a ton of them, What a character. (Jason Parks)
2011-06-03 16:00:00 (link to chat)You have mentioned Trevor Story, who is following Blake Beavan as a potential first round pick from my old high school. Is there any chance Texas would spring for the local boy again after trading the first one? And, would he remain at shortstop or project to a different position? (for any team, not just Texas)
(jhardman from Irving High School Class of 1980)
He looks like he could stay at short, but I don't think he's in the Rangers mix at 33. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you see Blake Beavan doing down the road? He's definitely getting more Ks and the command is as sterling as ever. He also appears to keep the ball down.
(Conjunction from Dallas)
I'm coming around on him. He's a weird one to deal with because he's just not what we thought he would be. That said, he's a very efficient pitcher built for innings, and while he's probably not a star, he's the kind of guy who is going to give you 200+ solid innings a year and that's incredibly valuable. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, why has your opinion on Blake Beavan been so affected by the scouting reports on his velocity? His numbers at Low-A Clinton were still very solid considering he was a first-year player in full-season ball, and it's not that uncommon to see a young pitcher lose velocity in his first full season.
(Joey Matschulat from Tyler, TX)
It's not uncommon to see that, but it is uncommon to see that big a velocity drop. Yes his numbers are solid, but when you look at the numbers that are really important at the low levels, 73 Ks in 121.2 innings is a cause for concern. (Kevin Goldstein)
