Whats the latest on Jesse Beal?

Was looking at the minor league scores and noticed Beal's name for the 1st time in a long time, altho I dont look at the minor scores every day. Whats been the story with him? Countless injuries? Does he still have any prospect status?

He is at Delmarva and had his delivery compacted similar to Chris Tillman. He is seeing his return and pitching about 1-2 mph harder, no pain, no loss in structural strength.

Always had strong command and ability to locate for a big pitcher and is still able to keep it down. The improved speed and ability to sustain it for a second turn right now is a good sign that he is back on the road.

He is coming out of the bullpen for numbers games and also to get him an additional bullpen session, and to systematically stretch him out. You could possible see him as a starter maybe around mid-august to end his season with 2-3 starts.

This season was about getting back into the saddle and he has done it. It is an up and down process, but outing similar to last night (7/14) is why I expected good things when he signed out of high school. 22, he still has plenty of time to shake out.

I touched on Beal in a recent report I wrote on the first half.

Don hits the finer points above. His appearance last night was outstanding going 4 innings allowing only 1H, 1BB and recording 5K's. His brothers were in attendance last night, so it was even more rewarding for him I'm sure. Not countless injuries (just one major one) so hopefuly he is on his way back. I like they way they've handled him bringing him along slowly (not something you normall hear coming from me).

Yea I was pleasantly surprised last night when I saw the boxscore.

I think his return plus a few other factors allowed them to move some other guys up.
