Beverlin was selected in the fourth round of the 1994 Major League Baseball draft by the Oakland Athletics. The next summer, he was traded to the New York Yankees along with Rubén Sierra in exchange for Danny Tartabull. He became a minor league free agent following the 2000 season and signed with the Anaheim Angels. After a single season in their farm system, he again became a free agent and signed with the Cleveland Indians.
In 2002, Beverlin made his Major League Baseball (MLB) debut. That year he played with both the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers. He spent three of the next four seasons pitching in Japan with the Yakult Swallows and Yokohama BayStars. In 2007, he briefly played for the Buffalo Bisons, the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians.
Following his professional playing career, Beverlin became a college baseball coach. Prior to the start of the 2008 season, he was named the pitching coach at Georgia Southern, where he coached from 2008–2009. From 2010–2011, he was the pitching coach at Tennessee.
