The Pirates announced that they have claimed right-handed pitcher Tyler Beede off waivers from the San Francisco Giants, Beede was designated for assignment by the Giants a week ago. To make room on the roster, the club announced that right-handed pitcher Beau Sulser has been DFA’d.

San Francisco selected Beede with the 14th pick in the 2014 MLB Draft out of Vanderbilt University. Beede emerged as one of the top pitching prospects in the game, and was considered a top 100 prospect prior to the 2017 by both MLB Pipeline and Baseball America.
