5/2/18 -Lean, wiry built righty. Mixed four pitches for strikes with a cross-body landing and a high three-quarters slot, occasionally dropping closer to a three-quarters slot. Fastball sat 90-93 mph, occasionally touching 94 and one 95 on a full count pitch that was well up and out of the strike zone. Velocity dipped to 88-91 from an unorthodox stretch position. Generated occasional swing/miss, but that was mostly due to his pitch mix, not excessive life or pinpoint command. First changeup at 83 mph he threw was plus. Had great bottom and good hand speed. All other changeups ranging from 80-83 were more average in quality and movement. Curveball was his best breaking pitch on the evening, showing good shape and depth. Velocity ranged from 75-79 mph as he was able to add and subtract. Also mixed in a sweeping slider/slurve at 80-84 mph. Good feel with the pitch as he expanded gloveside. Overthrew a couple early in the game with a more cutter-like shape and velocity at 87-88. One criticism I heard is his lack of pitching off his fastball and relying more on his offspeed. I believe pro ball should change that quickly as pitchers are both encouraged to and rewarded by throwing inside. Beck already shows the fastball command which will make this transition easier. Listed as a junior, he’s technically a redshirt-sophomore after missing all of the 2017 season with a back injury, giving him some leverage with two years of college eligibility remaining. However, he turns 22 years old a few weeks after the draft this June. It is likely time for him to begin his pro career. Overall, Beck relies on pitchability and command more than power. He possesses an average fastball, above average curveball, flashes a plus changeup and a useable slider. All pitches were thrown with at least average control. He could be more aggressive with his fastball and less reliant on his off speed, but again professional baseball should take care of those adjustments. Beck profiles as a back end starter. With continued good health, look for him to be drafted on Day 1.

2/22/18 -Looked healthy and in mid-season form. Didn’t look a bit rusty, considering his long layoff, missing all of last spring and much of this past fall with back issues. The arm was loose and the delivery was clean with a slight cross body landing. He occasionally showed some recoil when reaching back to finish a hitter with two strikes. Confident and super competitive. He hunted outs with a 90-95 mph fastball, working mostly within a comfort zone of 92-93. The fastball had above average arm side life. He pounded the bottom of the zone and challenged the hitters, resulting in many swing and misses. The slider was also a swing/miss out pitch at 81-85 mph. He mixed in a curveball at 74-78 and a changeup at 81-84 showing great finish/extension with the pitch. He kept the Fullerton hitters off balance all night and got the win (6IP, 4H, 1R, 1BB, 5K).
