100Ks is probably his ceiling. Floor of 15 Ks.

There's always worse.

Yeah. Jonathan Sanchez is still hanging in the Pirates rotation.

This' more of a rant - but it relates to a player.
There isn't a more horse crap starting pitcher around - and the M's just keeping putting the damn ball in this guys hand OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER. He's a complete lock for 5IP, 7-8H, 4-7ER, and like 2 Ks every time he toes the rubber.
Here's his arsenal - the straightest 90mph FB known to man, a change with zero fade/sink, the worst 70mph slow curve I've ver seen, and a slider that doesn't hang 20% of the time. As crappy as all that is - he takes 60-90 seconds in between pitches - which makes him completely un-watchable. But hey - HE THROWS STRIKES! How he doesn't have the worlds most severe case of whiplash is unknown.
It just gets really EFFIN old this SOB gets to toe the rubber every 5th day while apparently Danny Hultzen "isn't ready." When he's pretty much the same age as Beavan, with 10 times the stuff. God this franchise kills me!!!
I'd seriously consider watching soccer instead of paying to see Blake Beavan pitch.
Folks - any time you see a Mariners fan in public - shake their hand, cause it's damn hard work. It's basically the fan equivalent of waking up in the morning with Cespedes mid swing at your head. The reality of the suckness really set in today watching the Cardinals and seeing they have no spot to play Matt Adams and Oscar Taveras.
Please end the torture - HE GONE Beavan, give us Ramirez and Hultzen. And in a couple months trade Saunders and call up Paxton or Walker. BOOM!

Yea - we just haven't seen Maurer suck 50 times yet, haha. Maurer just lacks consistency with his stuff and with his command, there's a few good things with him were I could eventually see a #4-5 guy - but he legitimately needs more MiLB time.

He's 6'7", probably 250-260, and he's now rocking this MMA/tough guy facial hair - oh yea, and he throws 90 mph...If you're gonna be that big, and rock tough guy facial hair you gotta be 94+.

Beavan's secondary stuff would grade out as a 20 on the scouting scale, so it has no effect on his terrible fastball. It's just Beaven throwing that fastball and those 20 grade secondary offerings with a giant "JUST BARREL THE S**T OUT OF ME" sign on them.

I remember watching Diamondback games when Owings was pitching and he would just pump fastball after fastball in. Mark Grace would say things like, "Boy, Owings sure is proud of that fastball." And then, inevitably, Owings would just start giving up rockets and moonshots moments later.
