The Baltimore Orioles have signed relief pitcher Pedro Beato to a minor league deal.

The Orioles drafted Beato 32nd overall in the 2006 MLB Draft.

Going into the 2007 season, Beato was rated as the 99th best prospect in baseball. He also participated in the 2007 All-Star Futures Game.

Beato played for the New York Mets, Boston Red Sox and the Atlanta Braves. In 2010 Beato was selected by the Mets in the Rule 5 draft. In 9 minor league season Beato went 36-37 with a 4.04 ERA and 28 saves. In 4 major league seasons Beato went 4-2 with a 4.34 ERA.

Beato will just add depth to the Orioles.

    • For many years opening day was around the 13th, 14th of April. Around 1970 it moved back to roughly the 5th-7th. March wasn't broached until the mid-90s. The 1901 AL Orioles opened on April 26th. The first Orioles game ever, for the American Association team in 1882, was on May 2nd.
    • Six drafts into Mike Elias' tenure, the O's draft philosophy seems apparent.  College Bats, early and often, with most being 'Middle of the Diamond' An occasional HS pick, usually later in the draft (Gunnar in R2 was the exception and even Mayo in R4) Pitchers are taken typically after the first few rounds, mixed in with more college bats  The results are still coming in, but overall, they've been good.  Some may wonder how much credit does Elias deserves for picking #1 twice, #2 once and #5 once?  I'd say plenty.  Adley (or Witt) was a no-brainer... but still, he made a good call there.  Until they've been successful for some time at the big league level, the jury is still out on Kjerstad, Cowser, and Holliday.  But each are very promising.  2019: Picking #1 overall and in every round thereafter, he went with the presumed favorite in Rutschman over the HS SS Witt Jr.  He then made his best pick in Gunnar Henderson in R2.  He also added Stowers later in R2 and Joey Ortiz in R4.  2020: Picking #2 overall, Elias drafted Kjerstad, then Westburg #30 overall, and Mayo in R4.   2021: Picking #5 overall, Elias drafted Cowser, then Norby in R2... no one else of note thereafter, thus far. 2022: Picking #1 overall again, Elias drafted Holliday and then Beavers later in R1 (33).  Beavers is a decent bet to be a 4th OF at some point.  No one else of note thereafter, thus far. 2023: Picking #17 overall, Elias drafted Bradfield Jr., Horvath in R2 and Baumeister later in R2.  It's too soon to get a fair idea how this went. 2024: Picking #22 overall again, Elias drafted (CF) Honeycutt, then (SS) O'Ferrall at #32, and (C) Anderson in R2.  2019 and 2020 look VERY strong.  Major building blocks were added.  2021 looks meh overall, but how Cowser (and Norby to a lesser extent) develops will determine a final grade. Picking #1 in 2022 netted a top prospect in the game (great pick), but little else thus far looks promising. 2023 and 2024 are too soon to discuss with any degree of certainty, IMHO. IMHO I'd like to see a change in the way the O's go about choosing their picks, especially relying less on college bats after R1.  Arms and HS bats added to the mix would be preferable to how we've gone about it. 2020-- Haskin (R2) and Servideo (R3)... both have been busts. 2021-- Trimble (R2), and Rhodes (R3)... both look like wasted picks. 2022-- Wagner (R2), Fabian (R2), and MacLean (R3)... Wagner looks like a bust, Fabian may eventually play as a reserve in the bigs but has issues at the plate, and MacLean never signed. What are your thoughts?  Do you feel things are good as is, or should an adjustment be made in the team's draft strategy?
    • I'm assuming the Red Sox defense hasn't gotten better magically overnight, too.  I'm not too worried about them.     Dude, no.
    • Obviously the stats are not all that meaningful for the reasons outlined. Still, every comparison in this thread is to Ruth and Gehrig. Meaningful stat or not, that’s heady company for these young Os. 
    • Oh, 100% they will go to Sarasota. They just may not be placed with Delmarva for now.
    • I think it's common to have a basketball/football mindset when it comes to baseball. Especially if you're some kind of talk sports generalist. They imply that you get an ace starter and: a) he's going to be an ace at this level though his contract, never going to have an off year and b) that means the O's chances at winning the Series go from 10% to 50% or whatever. The reality is that starting pitching is exceptionally volatile, look at last year's Cy Young candidates. Less than half of the pitchers who got Cy Young votes in '23 have any chance whatsoever of getting any Cy Young votes this year. And Skubal's impact on the O's Series chances are like pushing them from 8% to 11%. Nobody in baseball has Fangraphs odds of winning it all more than 15%. No joking, adding Skubal moves the O's from 92% chance of not winning it all to something like 89%. And that's if they're not giving up current talent like Kjerstad and Westburg. If they do it's essentially a push.
