40-man roster: No

How acquired: Free Agent (June 21, 2017)

Profile:  The Brewers signed Beam as a free agent in 2017 after he went undrafted following his senior season at Old Dominion.   After beginning his college career at Hood River Community College, Beam moved on to ODU for his junior season and spent two seasons behind the plate there.  He was assigned to Milwaukee’s affiliate in the AZL following his signing, but appeared in just four games before moving up to Helena, though he did not see action with Helena in 2017.  A power-hitting catcher, Beam is a better defender than hitter, featuring a strong arm behind the plate.

 

2017:  Milwaukee sent Beam to Maryvale after signing him and he suited up in four games there, going 1-for-5 with a home run in his limited action.  He was transferred to Helena in early July but never played a game there and was placed on the restricted list on July 16th, where he remained for the rest of the season.
