Beeter had Tommy John surgery in high school and redshirted his freshman year at Texas Tech, but he returned in 2019 and earned freshman All-America honors with eight saves and a 3.48 ERA. He transitioned into the Friday night starter role for Texas Tech this spring and dominated over four starts, logging a 2.14 ERA with 33 strikeouts in four walks in 21 innings before the season shut down. Beeter's stuff and control have progressively gotten better the further he had moved away from surgery. He has a powerful pitch mix topped by a fastball that has reached 97 mph and hammer curveball with top-to-bottom shape that has plus potential. He struggled to theow strikes in 2019 but had no such problems this season. The analytics on both his fastball and curveball are impressive. Teams wanted to see if Beeter hold his stuff over a full season as a starter. Without a full 2020 season to scout him, teams will largely have to guess if the can. He is in the mix to be drafted as high as the second round by a team that believes he’s a starter.
