  • Royals' Matt Beaty: Sits against righty

    Beaty is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

    The lefty-hitting Beaty is on the bench for the third straight game, with two of those absences having come against right-handed starting pitchers. Beaty had a brief run as a strong-side platoon player at first base to close out August, but the Royals appear to have instead opted for a committee approach to the position.

    Beaty is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    The lefty-hitting Beaty will head to the bench Sunday with southpaw Chris Sale on the hill for Boston. While Beaty sits, the Royals will hand a start at first base to Matt Duffy in the series finale.

  • Royals' Matt Beaty: Steps out of lineup

  • Royals' Matt Beaty: Garners fourth straight start

    Beaty will start at first base and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Mariners.

    The lefty-hitting Beaty may continue to sit regularly versus left-handed pitching, but the Royals appear to be giving him a look in an everyday role at first base or designated hitter against righties. He'll start for the fourth game in a row after going 3-for-8 with a walk and two runs over the previous three contests.

  • Royals' Matt Beaty: Playing time picks up

    Beaty will start at first base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

    Beaty will be rewarded with his fourth start in five games after recording a pair of base hits and scoring a run in Tuesday's 10-8 loss. With Nick Pratto (groin) still stuck on the injured list and with Edward Olivares having recently been optioned to Triple-A Omaha, the lefty-hitting Beaty could be in store for steady playing time versus right-handed pitching.

  • Royals' Matt Beaty: Returns to bench role

    Beaty is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

    Beaty had started each of the last three games at first base and went 3-for-13 with two doubles, two runs and one RBI in those contests, but his opportunities will likely become more limited moving forward after Salvador Perez (hand) returned from a one-game absence Tuesday. Perez is expected to see consistent playing time at first base for the foreseeable future to open up starts behind the plate for the hot-hitting Freddy Fermin.
