Giants call up Tyler Beede, place Jaylin Davis on the IL

The San Francisco Giants made a whole host of moves on Tuesday before their game against St. Louis Cardinals, and the roster is starting to look a little bit different.

Most interesting as that right-handed pitcher Tyler Beede, who underwent Tommy John surgery in March of 2020, has been called up. Joining him is infielder Jason Vosler, who has already had a few stints on the roster this season, his first at the MLB level.

To make room for Beede and Vosler, outfielder Jaylin Davis, who injured his hamstring on Monday, was placed on the 10-day IL, and right-handed pitcher Jimmie Sherfy was designated for assignment.

Beede’s rehab assignment has been a little bit a mixed bag. The results haven’t been good — in 35.2 innings he has a 6.56 ERA, a 6.65 FIP, and 40 strikeouts to 32 walks — though that’s somewhat expected for someone returning from Tommy John. What’s encouraging is that his velocity appears unharmed by the surgery, as reports have him regularly touching 98 mph with his fastball.

It’s not entirely clear what Beede’s role will be out of the gates. He’s been a starting pitcher his whole career, and there’s an opening in the rotation with Sammy Long hitting the IL a few days ago. But with the former first-round pick still building back strength and production post-surgery, and Logan Webb nearing a return, it seems likely that we’ll see Beede operate out of the bullpen to start.

As for Vosler, he’s hit .222/.276/.463 in 58 plate appearances this year, and generally done a solid job filling in around the diamond.

On the other end of things, it’s a tough break for Davis. The right-handed slugger suffered an injury in Spring Training that sidelined him for over a month to start the Minor League season, and hit so well in his rehab assignment that the Giants added him to the active roster. He had only been on the roster for a few days before suffering the injury.

Sherfy, whom the Giants had signed to a Minor League deal, had a 4.22 ERA and a 5.32 FIP, with 9 strikeouts to 4 walks in 10.2 innings. The Giants will surely be interested in re-assigning him to AAA Sacramento if he clears waivers.
