BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Plucked off waivers from the Reds in August 2008, hard-throwing Marcus McBeth pitched well, save for his typically inflated walk rate.
2008 Converted to pitching from the outfield, Marcus McBeth might actually one of the fastest players in the organization-he was a kick returner for South Carolina before going pro in baseball. Like many a late convert to the mound he has good velocity, but unlike most he has a fantastic changeup, which has translated to odd spurts of dominance in the minors despite the fact that his breaking ball is below average. He should be a bigger part of the bullpen in 2008.
2007 The A`s fourth-round draft pick in 2001--that`s the year before the Moneyball draft--Marcus `The Scottish Play` McBeth batted .233 in three seasons as a center fielder, so in 2005 he made the logical switch from the garden to the hill. He`s had his ups and downs as a reliever, but in 2006 it was mostly up, and he`s a prospect as long as he maintains that strikeout rate (or something close to it). McBeth gets his fastball into the mid-90s and he`s working on a slider, but it`s his changeup that everybody talks about. He`s ticketed for Sacramento this spring.

I'd question your sense of proportion, except that I'm the chucklehead who's happy to see Marcus McBeth with the A's, or R.J. Swindle with the Rays. (Christina Kahrl)
