Right-hander Tyler Beede, the Giants' first-round pick in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft, threw a scoreless inning in his professional debut Thursday, helping the Rookie-level Giants defeat the Angels, 1-0, in the Arizona League.

While Beede was beginning his professional career Thursday, outfielder Angel Pagan was starting his rehab assignment as he recovers from a back injury that has sidelined him for more than a month. He went 2-for-3 with two doubles and played five innings in center field.

Beede, the Giants' No. 2 prospect, walked the first two batters he faced before retiring the next three batters to finish the first inning unscathed. He struck out two batters.

The Giants selected Beede with the 14th overall pick. Before he could sign, he had to finish his junior season at Vanderbilt, which ended with a championship in the College World Series. It was the Commodores first national title.

Beede went 8-8 with a 4.05 ERA and struck out 116 batters in 113 1/3 innings for Vanderbilt this spring.
