According to a Tweet by Jerry Crasnick, San Francisco Giants pitching prospect has decided to make a change in his representation. He will now be represented by ACES Group and the Levinson brothers.
The 14th overall pick of the 2014 MLB Draft by San Francisco, Beede is coming off a season with AA Richmond in which he finished with an 8-7 record and 2.81 ERA, the lowest in the Eastern League. He was also drafted in the first round of the 2011 MLB Draft out of his Massachusetts high school, but decided to play baseball at Vanderbilt University.
The decision go to Vanderbilt paid off, as he became a finalist for the Golden Spikes Award (nation’s best amateur player), played for USA Baseball’s collegiate national team, and helped the Commodores win the College World Series.
The 23-year old RHP was a non-roster invitee to the Giants’ spring training roster this year, and as he continues to improve as a prospect has ultimately helped him make his decision to make a change in his representation. ACES, according to its website, has represented professional baseball players in all phases of their careers for more than 25 years. It was founded, and is still operated by Sam and Seth Levinson, who have been named to Forbes’ list of “the world’s most powerful agents.”
