Former Big League Pitcher Beachy Joins Bees

(New Britain, Conn., August 14, 2018) – The New Britain Bees today announced the signing of pitcher Brandon Beachy.

“We’re excited to bring Brandon on board this late in the season,” says Bees General Manager Brad Smith. “He adds a veteran presence to our pitching staff and will be an important piece to our second half playoff run.”

Brandon Beachy comes to New Britain for his Atlantic League debut during his ninth year of professional baseball. The former big leaguer last pitched in 2016 as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.

The righthander would spend four seasons in the big leagues with Atlanta, with his most impressive year coming in 2012. In 13 starts, he won five games with a 2.00 ERA, 68 strikeouts and a 0.98 WHIP in 81.0 innings of work. His final year in the Majors came in 2015 with the Dodgers. Over his five-year Major League career, Beachy has started 48 games, posting a 14-12 record with a 3.36 ERA and 280 strikeouts over the course of 275.2 innings pitched.
