Would have liked to see them move on Mickey Storey (Ryan asleep at the wheel again), but here's a possible consolation prize.
Saux just DFAd him to make room for Ryan Dempster. Beato is 26YO, 6'4"/220#s. RHRP with low 90s FB/90 MPH sinker, up to 96 MPH speed on the FB. Arb eligible 2015, Former Rule 5 pick. Team control until 2017, likely available barely above the minimum. High K rate and decent WHIP. Gotta be better in the BP than some of the current options such as Waldrop or Swarzak or another Gray-like signing like last year, and insurance if Roenicke/Fien/Burton falter.
And this team is going to need plenty of BP depth given the precarious SP situation with the bevy of #5 level starters destined to make up the rotation.
