Pitcher Pedro Beato was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2006 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Nick Presto and made his pro debut that summer with the Aberdeen IronBirds, going 3-2 with a 3.63 ERA in 14 games. Beato pitched for the World team in the 2007 Futures Game, allowing a single to Adrian Cardenas before fanning J.R. Towles. He was 7-8 for the Delmarva Shorebirds, with a 4.05 ERA in 27 starts that season. He spent most of 2008 with the Frederick Keys, going 4-10, 5.85 in 19 starts. He was injured for part of the year and made two rehabilitation starts in with the GCL Orioles as well. In 2009, he improved somewhat and made it out of Class A, with a 5-7, 4.53 record at Frederick and a 1-3, 4.50 mark in 6 games with the Bowie Baysox of the AA Eastern League. Back at Bowie in 2010, he was moved to the bullpen, where he made 43 appearances, going 4-0 with a great 2.11 ERA and 16 saves. He struck out 50 in 59.2 innings.
After the 2010 season, when the Orioles failed to add him to their major league roster, he was selected by the New York Mets in the 2010 Rule V Draft. He made the Mets opening day roster in 2011 and made his Major League debut in relief on April 1, pitching two scoreless innings against the Florida Marlins in relief of Mike Pelfrey and Blaine Boyer in the team's first game of the season.
