One scout says Beattie's fastball and command of it are so good, he could pitch with it in Double-A right now. He's the rare college pitcher who can pitch off the fastball and command it to all quadrants of the plate, and he's confident enough with the 88-92 mph pitch to go inside on hitters and tie them up. At the Division II level, which he led with 15 wins in 2003, and in the Cape Cod League, where he led the league with a 0.39 ERA last summer, he overmatched hitters using his fastball, which has plus sinking action, and slider. Some scouts would like to see more of a third pitch. They agree Beattie's competitiveness and clean arm action are major assets, and that he has a sound feel for his craft.
