Beckham was released by the Mets on Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports. Beckham was the odd man out after the Mets brought in Brian Dozier on a minor-league deal. With a modest .237/.300/.367 slash line across his 11-year big-league career, Beckham is unlikely to be a particularly attractive option on the open market.
Beckham (undisclosed) returned to camp Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Beckham wasn't at camp over the past few days for an undisclosed reason, but he was able to return Thursday.

Beckham (undiisclosed) hasn't been in camp for the past two days, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. A reason for Beckham's absence hasn't been given. His absence isn't likely to be a significant one for the Mets, as he's not expected to fill anything more than a depth role this season.
Beckham signed a non-guaranteed contract Monday with the Mets and is expected to be added to the team's 60-man roster pool. Since being released by the Padres shortly after spring training was suspended in mid-March, Beckham had been in limbo for months while baseball instituted a freeze on transactions. With an agreement on the 2020 season having since been finalized, he'll now continue his career in New York, providing the Mets with additional depth in the infield. Barring a deluge of injuries, Beckham likely won't be in line for steady at-bats after posting a .643 OPS in 83 games with the Tigers in 2019.
