Four-Seam Fastball 88-91 … Two-Seam Fastball 87-89 … Slider 75-79 … Cutter 79-83 … Changeup 79-82 … Times to home with runner on first: 1.17, 1.18, 1.20, 1.21, 1.21, 1.21, 1.22, 1.22, 1.23, 1.25, 1.25, 1.26. Will show slower times with slower runners on first, too: 1.33, 1.33, 1.34, 1.35.

Notes — March 22
Very conventional, consistent mechanical look; advanced with some polish; lacks high upside or any average/above-average pitches in repertoire, but understands how to sequence hitters and generally shows the command to execute … Late arm-side run to his fastball; will eat up RHH on the inner half with fastball when right; boring action in on them … Cutter is very tight and short; breaks relatively late, but not a ton of depth or horizontal life; subtle pitch, but will play in certain situations to just get off a barrel when commanded well to spots. Will back up slider with cutter and vice versa; not afraid to change speeds and isn’t afraid to throw two similar pitches back to back to hitters; both are subtle, but legitimately enough differentiation between the two that he can get away with it assuming command. Small margin for error … Slider is bigger than cutter with a bit more pronounced depth, but again, not exactly a wipeout pitch; tight spinner that is deceptive out of his hand … Good extension on his changeup in my looks, really liked the way it came out of his hand … Will mix it up quite a bit; mixing cutter/slider, throwing everything to hitters from both sides of the plate, throwing nearly everything in any count, throwing breaking ball and cutter in to LHH; believes in himself and his ability to execute to a spot; for what he lacks in tools, velo, and pitch life, he sure makes up for it in conviction and intent … That said, very hittable; pitches to contact and there will be tons of it against him at higher levels; will really struggle to miss bats as he moves up the ladder.

Even with command and ability to change speeds, tough to imagine Clark Beeker as more than a low-leverage long reliever at ceiling; pitches to contact without strikeout stuff or velocity, and will struggle to miss bats against better hitters as he moves up. Likely organizational depth arm for the Minnesota Twins, but command profile is advanced and if he can really, consistently execute on it, maybe there’s a (slight) chance he can overachieve a bit towards the highest level.
