Beeks has started the year at Portland on a tear, yielding no ER in 5 of his 6 starts. He's currently 5-1 with a 1.38 ERA, and more impressively, he has 41Ks in 32.2 IP.
I saw one of his starts at Hadlock, he throws consistently in the low 90s. His offspeed stuff seemed to primarily be a slider in the mid-to-high 80s and a changeup that was a little slower. Didn't see many (if any) curves.
Given the questionable state of starting pitching in Boston, I wonder if Beeks will end up getting a look sometime in the mid-to-late summer.
