2011- Tyler Beede: Drafted 1st round, 21st overall

Tyler Beede was another starting pitcher drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays, this time out of high school instead of college. Beede made news because he was the only first-round pick in 2011 not to sign with the team that drafted him, as he chose to forego professional baseball and went to play college baseball for Vanderbilt instead. He would end up turning down roughly $2 million dollars from the Blue Jays.

Tyler Beede would end up being drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the 1st round in the 2014 amateur draft. He would work his way through the Giants farm system, making his first MLB appearance in April of 2018.

He would start two games for the team, pitching to a 0-1 record and 8.22 ERA before being sent back down to the minors.

Beede will begin the 2019 season in AAA for the Giants.
