Q&A with Jays' 1st Round Pick Tyler Beede

We sat down with Blue Jays' first round pick, Tyler Beede, for a Draft Day Q&A session. Find out what the right-handed pitcher from Lawrence Academy High School says about his stuff, his thoughts about starting his professional career now, who he'd compare his game to at the big league level, and more!

FutureJays.com: Let me start off by offering you a big "Congratulations" from all of us here at FutureJays, you must be pretty excited right now.

Tyler Beede: It's just a tremendous honor. We've had a lot of communication with the Jays over the last spring and before the draft and I'd love nothing more than to put the Jays' uniform on. It's a tremendous honor and I'm very excited about making that decision.

FutureJays.com: So you weren't surprised it was the Blue Jays that selected you?

Beede: I was actually very shocked when they said my name. I didn't get a call before that pick or anything like that. We knew we had some good odds going into that pick, but it was a shock. We got those calls after the pick [from] the area scout, the GM, and a few of those guys. But yeah, it was a shock when I heard my name.

FutureJays.com: How much did you talk to them before the draft?

Beede: My dad handled a lot of the calls with stuff like that. I know he talked to them a lot. We've had various meetings after games I pitched with a few of the guys. They were very interested and I was very interested in them as well. It's just a great organization, a great development, and I have a lot of good things to say about them. I'm just happy to have that possibility to play for them in the future.

FutureJays.com: Do you have any idea what the Jays' organization or farm system is like?

Beede: My buddy was drafted by the Blue Jays out of high school, Timmy Collins. So I got to see him play at various times. I saw him play in New Hampshire with the Fisher Cats. I saw that kind of environment with the interaction and stuff like that, so I'm sure I'll talk to Timmy about the organization some more, but [I'll also] talk to the guys in the front office and the scouts more. We'll have those sit-down conversations and hear more, but I hear nothing but great things and I'm very excited.

FutureJays.com: What type of pitches do you throw and at what speeds?

Beede: I'm a fastball-curveball-changeup guy. My fastball isn't the fastest in the draft class. I'm in the low-90s. I can tip 95-96 mph here and there, but I've got a little run on my four-seam. My changeup, which is a circle-change, is probably my best pitch, my go-to pitch. I can throw it in any count. I'm very confident with that pitch. It really has gotten some great development over the past few years. The curveball, which was a new addition to my arsenal this year - I started working on it a lot last offseason and it was a pitch that needed a lot of improvement - so now it's a hard 12-6 curveball with late bite and it was a key pitch for me this season.

FutureJays.com: What would you say is your best attribute as a pitcher?

Beede: I'm very calm on the mound. I'm very poised when I'm in the moment. I execute pitches very well. I'm able to throw at times all three pitches for strikes. Some days you're obviously working with just two or even one, but for the most part I have good feel for my pitches. I can throw them for strikes

FutureJays.com: Growing up in Massachusetts I'm assuming you're a Red Sox fan, no? Did you have a favorite player growing up?

Beede: Yeah growing up here, going to the Red Sox games was natural. I always tried to emulate Josh Beckett. I've gotten the chance to meet him and talk to him one on one, and he's a great guy. Our conversation was amazing and he's going to give me advice no matter [which team] I get drafted by. He taught me a lot of good things.

FutureJays.com: Who would you compare your stuff to at the Major League level so Jays' fans can get an idea of what you're like on the mound? And why?

Beede: I guess I've got to stick with Red Sox guys comparison-wise. I'm like a [Clay] Buchholz mechanically, tempo-wise and all of that stuff. I can't really compare myself to one guy, it's pretty tough. I'm my own animal out there. I'm a big competitor. I'm always going to give my best and give my team the best possible chance to win each night. Being a pitcher, you can win or lose the game all by yourself but at the same time it takes all nine guys to win a game. I'm a bulldog and I'll do anything to get the win.

FutureJays.com: What would you say is your best moment in baseball and why?

Beede: This is by far the top of the list. It's one of the greatest nights of my life. I'm just tremendously honored and I'm excited that I was able to celebrate it with family and friends. I'm very excited that the Toronto Blue Jays drafted me and I'm excited to go forward with them in my future.

FutureJays.com: On that note then, with all of the talk about your firm commitment to Vanderbilt, are you looking to sign now and get your professional career started right away?

Beede: I'm definitely open to it. Obviously it's my dream to play in the big leagues and as soon as possible that I can get that done, the better. To start that with such a great organization like Toronto would be amazing. At the same time though, Vanderbilt is a strong commitment. It's a great school and it's going to be a very hard decision either way, but tonight is not about the decision. It's the moment to hang out with family and friends, and enjoy it with them. I'll make that decision later on in a week, or the summer, or whenever it happens after talking to the team. It's going to be a hard decision either way.
