Beasley, 23, allowed just one run in 10 innings pitched last Tuesday at Pensacola and Sunday against Mississippi. He tossed nine consecutive scoreless innings during the week before giving up a solo home run with two outs in the ninth Sunday. Beasley only gave up five hits in his two outings, spanning five innings each, and he struck out a total of 13 batters. He was just one strikeout shy of his career-high Sunday, fanning eight Braves hitters.

The Lyons, Georgia native was selected by the Angels in the 30th round of the 2017 MLB Draft out of Clemson University. Beasley pitched in 10 games with Mobile to finish the 2018 season, going 3-3 with a 2.44 ERA. He is currently the No. 24 prospect in the Angels organization, according to MLB Pipeline.
