A note about Beavan (pre-trade) by the OKC beatwriter:
RedHawks pitching coach Terry Clark got his first look at Beavan on the mound since spring training before Wednesday's doubleheader. The 21-year-old Beavan threw about 45 pitches in a bullpen session.
"We're just trying to get him to firm up his slider a little bit and throw his changeup — don't baby it, throw it in there," Clark said. "He's got very good command. He doesn't walk a lot of guys. He's going to challenge you in the strike zone. When we get him to use his pitches and be aggressive with them, he's going to be good."
Beavan has walked just 12 and struck out 68 in 110 innings.
"You're definitely going to have to mix it up more and change speeds here," Beavan said. "I'm just going to have to go into it as I've been doing in Double-A. I'll go from there and adapt to the league."
