Beaty went 2-for-5 with a double, a walk, two RBI and two runs in Saturday's 14-11 win over the Angels. Making his third straight start Saturday, Beaty was one of five Dodgers to finish the contest with multiple hits. The 28-year-old still looks to be stuck in a part-time role for now, but he could find himself in the lineup more regularly if AJ Pollock's strained hamstring forces him to the injured list.
Beaty is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cubs. Beaty will head to the bench after starting each of the final three games of the Dodgers' weekend series in Milwaukee. He turned in a career day in Sunday's 16-4 win, going 4-for-6 with a home run, seven RBI and three runs. The 28-year-old may have earned himself some extra opportunities on the back of his huge performance, but he'll still remain without a clear path to an everyday spot in the Los Angeles lineup. AJ Pollock, Chris Taylor and Mookie Betts should be locked in as the Dodgers' primary outfielders while Cody Bellinger (lower leg) and Zach McKinstry (oblique) are on the injured list.
Beaty went 4-for-6 with a home run, seven RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's 16-4 win over Milwaukee. Beaty opened the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning before scoring on AJ Pollock's grand slam. In the second inning, Beaty added a grand slam of his own. He also hit a two-RBI single in the fourth and scored on a Gavin Lux single in the eighth. The 28-year-old Beaty has been limited to a part-time role this season. He has one home run, 11 RBI and five runs scored across 36 plate appearances after Sunday's big day at the dish.
Beaty came through with a two-run single in a pinch hit appearance Wednesday against Cincinnati. Beaty made his lone trip to the plate in the contest count, driving in a pair of runs with a single to left field in the eighth inning. All four of his RBI this season have come in the past two days, and he has now reached base via hit or walk in four of his last five plate appearances. Beaty has yet to record an extra-base hit this season but has registered a 5:6 BB:K while serving primarily as a pinch hitter.
Beaty was recalled by the Dodgers on Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Beaty made the team's Opening Day roster but didn't do much with his limited opportunities, going 1-for-11 at the plate before being sent down in mid-April. He's unlikely to fill a significant role now that he's back with the team.
