Beede joined fellow pitchers Jose Quintana and Chris Stratton and catcher Tyler Heineman as San Francisco castaways who landed with the Pirates when he was designated for assignment at the start of May. Outfielder Bryan Reynolds, traded away as a prospect, has also developed into an undisputed star, while another one of Beede’s bullpen mates, David Bednar, is the older brother of the Giants’ first-round pick last year, Will Bednar.

m. | UPDATED: June 19, 2022 at 10:26 a. | UPDATED: June 17, 2022 at 7:30 p.m.m. PITTSBURGH — About half a dozen Pirates have an inside joke going in their clubhouse here at PNC Park. PITTSBURGH — In the fifth and final inning of his start two weeks ago in Philadelphia, something clicked for Carlos Rodón. “We’ve got some forever Giants floating around here,” cracked Tyler Beede, the latest addition to what is quickly becoming Giants East. “It feels like it’s been a month,” Cobb said.

Beede joined fellow pitchers Jose Quintana and Chris Stratton and catcher Tyler Heineman as San Francisco castaways who landed with the Pirates when he was designated for assignment at the start of May. In a 2-0 win Friday over the Pirates to open a seven-game road swing, an especially efficient Rodón completed eight innings for the first time this season and worked into the seventh for the first time since his second start. Further tests revealed a strain in his flexor tendon, putting his ability to contribute at all this season into doubt. Outfielder Bryan Reynolds, traded away as a prospect, has also developed into an undisputed star, while another one of Beede’s bullpen mates, David Bednar, is the older brother of the Giants’ first-round pick last year, Will Bednar. “It’s been an easy transition just because there’s a lot of familiar faces,” Beede said. And for all eight, Pittsburgh couldn’t muster one run, or really come all that close. “It’s good to see guys who’ve been over there and can relate to my scenario being DFA’d and all that. “A flexor strain is a real injury.” Beede, the Giants’ first-round pick in 2014, had his tenure with his first professional organization come to an end when rosters were cut down from 28 to 26 players at the end of April.21 ERA over their past 82 innings. “We play 162 games in 180 days.

Beede was out of options and had been mostly relegated to a mop-up role in the Giants’ bullpen. “In a sense I saw it coming. The recent stretch of strong pitching has allowed San Francisco to win seven of nine while getting only 3.2 million but came with an additional $2. The writing was on the wall,” Beede said. “I don’t want to say I was expecting it because I didn’t just want to let myself wait around expecting it to happen, but I knew the scenario. On Friday, two solo shots were enough to start a seven-game trip on a positive note.” One night earlier this series, Beede reconnected with a few former teammates over dinner. It would likely take at least another month before he is major-league ready, placing his debut at mid-August in the best-case scenario. So you’re extending the bullpen, putting them in a vulnerable place,” Cobb said.

Logan Webb and Tyler Rogers were there, both of whom’s weddings Beede officiated over the past offseason, as well as starter Alex Cobb and mental health coach Harvey Martin. Three innings later, Joc Pederson led off the fourth by turning on a 1-1 changeup to extend the Giants’ lead to 2-0. “It was just good to reconnect and see him again and make sure he’s doing well,” said Rogers, who also caught up with Stratton this series. “He seems happy. A lot has changed since Rodón’s outing at Citizens Bank Park on June 1. It would have marked the next step in his rehab, as well as the last one before he would have embarked on a rehab assignment. Hopefully he can build some momentum here in Pittsburgh. I’m sure we’ll stay in touch for the rest of our lives.5 games back of the Dodgers in the NL West. When he resumed throwing, he felt stiffness in his neck, which extended his absence enough to make an IL stint the sensible move.

” Beede’s career in San Francisco was derailed when he felt a twinge in his elbow during spring training in 2020, ultimately requiring Tommy John surgery. Anthony DeSclafani (right ankle inflammation) could also rejoin the rotation by the time the Giants return home. After starting 22 games, with a 5. After Friday’s win in Pittsburgh, the Giants have won six of their past seven and pulled with 4.08 ERA, as a rookie in 2019, Beede was fighting for a rotation spot before he was forced to undergo the intensive rehab that follows the procedure. When he returned to the mound briefly in 2021 and then in spring this year, he couldn’t throw enough strikes to carve out a role in a fairly established San Francisco pitching staff. A small part of that has been a rekindled Rodón, who found himself in the fifth inning of that ballgame. He is eligible to be activated from the 60-day IL on Tuesday, the Giants’ second of four games with the Braves. He made six appearances out of the Giants bullpen, posting a 4. Whenever you’re hurt or on the IL you feel like a burden, taking up space and not contributing at all to the team.

66 ERA, before getting designated for assignment.60 ERA into the game — a high-water mark for the season. But since arriving in Pittsburgh, Beede has performed well in a swingman role out of the Pirates’ bullpen, with a 2. “He could conceivably make a start for us on Tuesday.57 ERA over 14 innings in eight appearances. Then, in the fifth, he struck out the side, mowing through the middle of the Phillies’ order — with nine whiffs. He’s subbed in a two-seamer for his four-seamer and a slider for his curveball, though the same command issues exist, with an equal number of walks to strikeouts (6). He’s also moved out to the suburbs after only living in the city in San Francisco. On Friday, Rodón was the same swing-and-miss pitcher. The Giants will also have to clear a 40-man spot to activate DeSclafani from the 60-day IL. “The potential’s there for us to rattle off a quality outing every single night and give your team a chance to win.
