Giants No. 4 starter: RHP Tyler Beede

Rookie Tyler Beede showed promise in 2019, and he will likely be given a long leash in 2020 as the organization tries to decide if he is worth keeping around as a starter going forward.

The two biggest issues with Beede are his tendency to issue free passes and his inconsistency, and those two things are obviously linked.

His 8.7 K/9 strikeout rate makes it clear that he has the stuff to compete at the MLB level, but a 3.5 BB/9 walk rate is simply too high to be a consistent starter.

Still, he is young and talented, so in a rebuild year he will be given many opportunities. If Beede hopes to wear the orange and black for years to come, 2020 might be his last chance to prove that he can be a solid big league starter.
