Drafted in the 10th round (304th overall) by the New York Yankees in 2003 (signed for $20,000)
A walk-on at Scottsdale (Ariz.) CC in 2000, Beam has developed into one of the best senior signs for the 2003 draft. He spent last year as a closer because he didn't have effective secondary pitches. Throwing 91-94 mph on a tough downward plane-he's 6-foot-7-got him drafted in the 11th round by the Phillies, but he didn't sign. Beam has improved his slider this year, enabling him to stay in the rotation, though he has thrown more at 87-91 mph as a starter. His changeup is still spotty, so he'll likely return to the bullpen as a pro.
