No. 1 Tyler Beede
That jersey looks good on Tyler Beede. The number one prospect most likely will break into the majors at some point this season. He is the future of this pitching staff. Giants fans got their first taste of Beede in the last exhibition game of spring training against the Oakland Athletics. He pitched well and efficient only allowing two runs to score and getting five strikeouts over four innings of work.
He performed just as well in his triple-A debut. In his lone start of the year the 23-year-old gave up only 1 run over six innings of work while striking out three and walking none. He picked up right where he left off to end the 2016 season. In his last six starts of the 2016 season, Beede only allowed seven runs and had 45 strikeouts in 39.2 innings.
Beede seems to have taken the next step in getting ready for the major leagues. The fifth starter spot will always be a question mark based on Matt Cain‘s performance throughout the year. It would take a lot for both Blach and Cain to surrender that role, but Beede is next in line
