2011 Player Review: Pedro Beato

Posted on by Kerel Cooper

In the video below I take a look at the 2011 season of Pedro Beato. Watch the video  below to hear why I feel Beato has a chance to be a late game answer for the Mets at some point in the future.

    I think Pedro had a very promising rookie campaign. He also had a nice little run from June 14 thru July 31. 1-0 with 5 holds and a .600 ops against. I think the Mets should make an effort to resign Izzy, and then get some bodies in here for the Bullpen ASAP. I would like at least one frontline closer type….maybe they could take a chance on Broxton or Capps?

      It will be interesting to see how they handle the bullpen this off season. It most def needs some work. Thoughts on Manny Acosta?

        He is a good guy to have for depth in the bullpen. He throws hard, has pretty good movement on his pitches, and his strike out to walk rate was the best of his career. The only thing is the consistency of his command. He gave up 6hr's last year, but overall I think he has been pretty good. I think he and Pedro Beato have live arms and the Mets should (and will) be very active in the upcoming Rule 5 draft looking for a quality arm to add to the bullpen. Guys like this would thrive in a 6th-7th inning role if the Mets had a pair of quality set up men and a quality closer. Although it didn't work out, Minaya's plan of having Putz-Rodriguez to shorten the game was a good one (imo).
