Pedro Beato, who has been sidelined since spring training with shoulder discomfort, appeared in his first minor league game Saturday night. Beato tossed two scoreless innings for Class A St. Lucie, allowing one walk while striking out two.

Beato is on the 60-day major league DL, which freed up a 40-man roster spot but prevents him from appearing in the big leagues until May 27.

He likely was slated to be optioned to Triple-A Buffalo to open the season had he not had the shoulder issue and instead been placed on the major league DL.
