Beaty was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports. Beaty has been promoted to take the place of Chris Taylor, who was diagnosed with a broken left forearm Monday. Beaty has pieced together a .278/.297/.407 slash line with two homers and 17 RBI in 37 games this season for the Dodgers.
Beaty was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday. Beaty earned a run of playing time late in the first half but didn't particularly impress, hitting .278/.297/.407. His absence clears a spot for the Dodgers to activate Corey Seager (hamstring) from the injured list.
Beaty is not in the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Padres, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Beaty started Saturday's game but will return to the bench Sunday with southpaw Joey Lucchesi on the mound for San Diego. Kyle Garlick will start in left field and bat sixth in the final game before the All-Star break.
Beaty is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. Beaty has only started against two lefties all year, so it's not a surprise to see him sit in favor of Kyle Garlick with Eric Lauer on the mound for San Diego. He's not getting on base at a great clip against righties (.319), but Beaty is hitting for average with the platoon advantage (.295) and looks fairly safe in his role heading into the second half, though there's always a chance the Dodgers upgrade via trade prior to the deadline.
Beaty went 2-for-6 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Rockies. Beaty came through with an RBI in the third inning on a fielder's choice, and he tacked on an insurance run in the sixth with a double to center. The 26-year-old is slashing .290/.305/.430 with two home runs and 15 RBI over 32 games this season.
