    Beckel has been a full-time reliever for Texas Tech for three seasons, but his 2023 campaign was a bit of a breakout. After struggling with control, he improved significantly in that area and posted a 2.23 ERA over 48.1 innings, with a 31.9% strikeout rate and 9.5% walk rate. He’s a multi-inning reliever who pitched a single inning in just four of his 24 appearances. Beckel is listed at 6-foot-4, 225 pounds and attacks hitters with a 92-94 mph fastball that has been up to 95 and a low-to-mid-80s power breaking ball. The pitch has slider velocity, but top-down movement with more vertical bite than horizontal sweep. It’s been a pitch that he gets in the zone at a high rate and also generates whiffs at around a 50% rate.
