Rangers Vs. Mariners: Former Texas Prospect Blake Beavan Takes The Hill For Seattle In Game 2

When the Texas Rangers step to the plate on Tuesday night against the Seattle Mariners, they'll be taking on a pitcher who was once tagged as a top prospect in their own organization.

Blake Beavan will take the hill for the Mariners tonight. Beavan is a Dallas native and was a first-round draft pick for the Rangers straight out of Irving High School. He was sent to Seattle in the Cliff Lee trade and will now be in Arlington for the first time as a major-leaguer. He was 5-6 with a 4.27 ERA in 15 starts in 2011.

Beavan will be going up against Neftali Feliz, making his first start of the season and his first start of his MLB career, having transitioned from the closer role.

This pitching matchup will be an interesting one to watch.
