Player Profile: Brandon Beachy

I have three cards of Brandon Beachy. This one is from 2011 Topps.

Playing career: Brandon Beachy came up with the Braves in 2010, and became a part of their starting rotation in 2011. He has pitched pretty well for the Braves but has been hampered by numerous injuries.

Where he is now: In five starts in 2013, Beachy went 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA.

My memories: The Braves are one of those teams whom you always hear about their prospects. I’d heard the name a lot and thought he was a bigger star then it looks like he actually is. He’s already 27 so not a lot more time to get over the injuries and live up to his potential.

Google Autocomplete Results: He is first when you type Brandon B, ahead of Brandon Boyd, the singer for Incubus. There do not appear to be any other prominent Brandon Beachys.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Bob Beall.
