Beggs' lack of velocity will keep him from getting drafted too high, but his undeniable success will ensure he gets drafted. He worked at least seven innings in 10 of his first 13 starts for Kentucky this season. Beggs' below-average fastball sits at 88-91. He'll touch 92 mph but his comfort zone is the upper 80s. He doesn't have a plus pitch, but he has the ability to mix four offerings--a get-over early count below-average curveball, a harder fringe-average slider he uses later in the count and a fringe-average changeup. It's Beggs' newfound ability to work inside as well as away from hitters that has added to his effectiveness. In the past, Beggs worked away but his improved two-seam fastball has given him the comfort to bust hitters inside, making his slider to righties and changeup to lefties more effective. Beggs lacks the stuff to be more than a back-end starter, but his success in the Southeastern Conference should encourage a team to give him a chance to see if his stuff will play against pro hitters.
