BP Chats

2017-11-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)From a fantasy point of view, how large of a gap is there between Mike Soroka and Tyler Beede for the next few years? (30 team dynasty league)
(llama from Peru)
This is well within the fudge factor. Soroka is a better real life prospect than a fantasy prospect (and a better real life prospect than Beede), but he isn't likely to post huge K numbers and the park difference here sure appears to be notable. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-10-17 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is it me, or does it feel like a foregone conclusion that the Giants will find a way to trade for Giancarlo Stanton? Any idea what package would get it done, maybe something like Chris Shaw, Tyler Beede, Heliot Ramos, Austin Slater, and Steven Okert?
(matzabal from CO)
Haha, I'm not so sure it's foregone, but they're an easy spot to visualize him landing. I think a lot of previously rebuilding teams are probably in the running for him, since slotting him in the OF is a good way to suddenly create a good offense. Odds on, I'd say the Giants make a strong, if not the strongest run.

I don't think it's going to be a bunch of prospects for him kind of deal though. My guess is that some team is going to have to take on salary and give up probably their top prospect, especially since Jeter is going to want his GM to make an initial statement. I think I'd need Arroyo in there as well as Beede and Shaw. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)Tyler Beede, do I make it to the show in the next month for the injured MadBum? and how successful will I be?
(BUCCOFAN from London)
I don't think "for" Bumgarner. Beede is probably close to earning a shot here, but Blach is fine back of the rotation material, and I'd expect Beede'd need a bad run from Cain or an injury to get a shot. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-02-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Kate hope you're having a swell day. I was curious is there anything not to like about Tyler Beede and do you expect him to be the first SP call up for the Giants this year? Thanks for all your hard work and everyone else at BP.
(Kgraveman from Mississippi )
He's developed enough to probably be at the top of their list, and his profile makes him a good gap-filler starter. The only thing to not like is that he's not better - there's not really an extreme drawback, just a lack of ceiling. (Kate Morrison)
2016-08-15 22:00:00 (link to chat)Hello Wilson! You might know me. Who will have a bigger impact in the long run between ex-Giant prospect Phil Bickford and current Giant prospect Tyler Beede? Thank you?
(WBG from Philippines)
I like Beede by a decent margin there. Was a fan of his arsenal's depth last year, and reports I've seen from this season suggest he's started to implement the physical adjustments he needed while maturing with his sequencing and game management. I think he's a relatively high floor guy rounding out a quality a rotation. I didn't really see it in my brief looks at Bickford, and I know David Lee wasn't convinced earlier this spring at Augusta either. The delivery's kind of stiff and he's got a low drop that discounts his height and leaves the fastball wanting for plane. That's okay to a degree, as he's got deception and some late oomph to get over barrels. But it leaves a thinner margin for error, and he needs to be pretty fine consistently with it because the secondaries weren't all that impressive. Slider showed average movement but he struggled to command it, change didn't do a ton. I'd like him better as a two-pitch guy where the FB could hopefully gain another tick or three over the 89-92 range I saw him sitting. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hello. Five weeks into the season, the Giants seem to be getting a lot of good performances out of their pitching prospects. Anybody particular standing out for you?
(Richard from Boise, Idaho)
They really are. A couple of things. Tyler Beede throwing strikes is huge. It's never been a question of stuff with him. If he limits the walks, he's really interesting. I've also heard really good things on Michael Santos. Four quality pitches and he pounds the strike zone with all of them. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-04-12 18:00:00 (link to chat)Is Phil Bickford a stud or scrub?
(Victor from San Fran)
No. I think he's inbetween those. He had a fantastic debut, though, and his upside might be the highest of any of the Giants pitchers, including Tyler Beede. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-01-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Was Tyler Beede considered at all? Does SF's ability to develop pitching have any impact?
(Tyler from Milwaukee)
On some level an organization's abilities in player development are a factor, of course. But Beede hasn't made the strides that we thought he would have since being drafted, and while that doesn't mean he can't do that going forward, we're going to need to see it happen before factoring it into his prospect evaluation. (Top 101 Chat with Craig Goldstein)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think about Tyler Beede? Is it tougher for him to crack the rotation now with so many pieces already set in place for the Giants?
(JT Smooth from Loveboat Cap'n)
Vanderbilt guy...Go Dores...Um...Where were we? Beede...The raw stuff arsenal-wise is there for him to be an impact fantasy starter, no doubt. Given the Giants track record, I'm going to trust them. Seeing his control improve late last year at Double-A was encouraging. Still, he's a risky investment. (George Bissell)
2015-10-13 19:00:00 (link to chat)How much of Tyler Beede's struggles and loss of stuff in AA were due to refining of mechanics and ordered usage of certain pitches? He was 93-97 at Vanderbilt, but has been at 89-91 as a pro.
(GPT from San Jose, CA)
I'm not sure, as I didn't see him. It's not unusual for pitchers to lose some velocity out of college, but that far of a drop is concerning. If he were hurt, you'd assume the Giants would know it, y'know? That's something to keep an eye on for the beginning of next season. (Kate Morrison)
2015-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Tyler Beede's transformation from a power arm to a 89-91 sinkerballer? Is this a permanent change or does will he go back to his explosive 4S FB sometime?
(GPT from San Jose, CA)
I think you'll see an uptick in velocity soon; it looks to me like he's working on keeping the arm slot consistent, which has led to much improved command/control. The arm strength/stuff is still there for him to miss plenty of bats. He's been impressive. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has a higher ceiling/floor between Tyler Beede and Keury Mella?
(GPT from San Jose, CA)
Wrote up both here:

Beede's a safer bet, although recent reports I've heard of him since his promotion suggest a player that may have a few too many cooks in his developmental kitchen right now. He brought two new pitches into his arsenal this year (cutter, 2-seam) despite an already-abundant supply of options. Mella's FB is awesome, and with standard development of his CB and CH he can turn into something. (Wilson Karaman)
2014-11-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think was the most interesting internal debate you guys had for the NL Central lists (Ranking someone 1 vs. 2, On the Rise vs. left off Top 10, etc.)?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
There is always lots of great debate -- way to many to list. A few that jump to mind (both published list and those still to come) are Almora vs Soler, Josh Bell's ultimate positioning on the Pirates list, Michael Taylor vs AJ Cole, Brandon Drury's placement in the 'Zona list, Kyle Crick vs. Tyler Beede vs. Steve Okert (was more of a comparative exercise than straight rankings debate)...

It's a daily joy to kind around evaluative approaches and argue the merits of certain player profiles in the abstract and on a specific player to player basis -- by far my favorite aspect of being involved with BP. (NL Central Top 10s With Nick Faleris)
2014-07-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Tyler Beede the perfect case why going going to college instead of accepting first round money is fairly pointless? He got $200k more by barely improving his stock, but he also probably delayed his development/free agency and took on risk that he didn't need to. The whole "getting an education" arguement is a bunch of crap too.
(Matt from Cambridge)
It depends on the end game. If the goal is to get more money, then yeah, it doesn't usually work out too well (though Gerrit Cole would beg to differ). But there is more too it than that. You're right about the education part of it - not that getting an education is bad, but just that most baseball players in the majors, even the ones who attended college, didn't graduate. Still, there is some growing up to be done. I'd argue that that part of college is much more important for these guys.

In the end, there are tons of examples where it worked out to go to college and examples where it didn't. Each guy has to make his own decision. I would say, however, that given the potential for injury, if I was a pitcher and someone was offering me line-changing (first round) money, I'd take it while I was sure I could. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Tyler Beede falling out of the first round?
(@twibnoteseric from so cal)
I don't have enough intel to say one way or another, but I know I wouldn't let that happen if I were a scouting director. He's got a very high talent level, but there are some slight tweaks I'd make with the delivery. (Ron Shah)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)What are some pitchers with the highest ceiling in the 2014 MLB draft (not named rodon, hoffman ,and kolek)?
(Silverback38 from VA)
This is a good question for Jeff Moore, but the guy I like a lot is Tyler Beede. I've heard that he has a lot of ceiling if he can figure out the command. Todd Gold wrote about him here: (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Ronit,can Tyler Beede maybe go in the top three in draft or is that not realistic and can Kyle Schwarber maybe go in the top seven or is that too high as well??? Thanks.....
(John from Boston)
I think you are too bullish on both.

Schwarber could go higher than he would otherwise if he can convince teams he's sticking at catcher, because this draft class just hasn't shown any impact bats as of yet.

Meanwhile, it's the opposite situation for Beede, who is "just another" right-handed starter in a draft full of right-handed starters at both the college and prep ranks. (Ronit Shah)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey R.J. Realistically high can Tyler Beede and Kyle Schwarber go in the upcoming draft??? Thanks....
(John from Boston)
There's enough time between now and then for one of these guys to gain helium, John, but most seem to anticipate both going in the first round. Should Beede show improved command, or Schwarber convince a few teams he can stick behind the plate, then they could certainly move up to the top half of the first round, if not higher. Even if they don't show marked improvement, someone's going to take a chance on Beede's arsenal and Schwarber's raw pop before long. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-02-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you were the Cubs picking at #4 and you had a choice between Trea Turner and Tyler Beede who would you choose right now?
(Jordan from Las Vegas)
I love me some Trea Turner, but they could use pitching. I hate when teams draft for need, however. I'll tell you in a few months after we see some more of Beede. (Jeff Moore)
