Reconnaissance work on Starting Pitchers for the upcoming season brought me to Blake Beavan of the Seattle Mariners. Beavan is not, yet, expected to win a spot in big league rotation, but he’s 6’7” 240 lbs. and he started 15 games for the Mariners, as a 22-year old, last season. So, there is reason for optimism. In fact, the Mariners are displaying some confidence by starting Beavan in their cactus league opener on Friday.
