Beachy signed a minor-league contract with San Francisco on Saturday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.
Beachy has pitched parts of five seasons in the big leagues, posting an ERA of 3.36 in 48 starts. Just two of those starts have come since 2013, however, and none have come since 2015. Elbow issues kept him out of affiliated baseball altogether the last two seasons, though he did appear briefly for the New Britain Bees of the Atlantic League last year, allowing five earned runs in 12.2 innings. It would be a surprise if the 32-year-old makes an impact at the major-league level this season, but his past success means there are certainly worse players for the Giants to take a shot on.
Beachy (elbow) returned to the Dodgers' spring training complex in June after recovering from a PRP injection, the Orange County Register reports.
He still hasn't pitched in a game in 2016, and it's reasonable to think that he will be limited to a bullpen role if he's able to get back on the mound in game situations before the end of the season.
Beachy (elbow) has left the team's spring training complex in Arizona and gone home, the Dodgers' official site reports.
There hasn't been any official word from the club, but signs would seem to point to Beachy having more issues with his arm.
Beachy has ceased throwing activities due to the tendinitis in his elbow, Eric Stephen of SB Nation reports.
Beachy was making progress, but seems to have re-aggravated the tendinitis, as he is no longer throwing. There is no timetable for his return.
Beachy (arm) resumed throwing off a mound Saturday, J.P Hoonstra of the Los Angeles News Group reports.
Beachy has been battling arm tendinitis since early March, but he was finally able to get back on the mound Saturday after being given a week to rest following a disastrous outing against Arizona. He'll likely need a few more mound sessions before he can be considered a go for game action, however. Look for Beachy to start the year at Triple-A despite the rash of injuries to the back end of the Dodgers' rotation.
Beachy has been diagnosed with mild tendinitis in his right arm, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Entering Friday's start, Beachy had conceded no runs across five innings in two spring appearances, but the tables quickly turned. In addition to a 40-pitch second inning, he was removed in the third when he was unable to set down any of the first three batters. Because he has a pair of Tommy John surgeries on the medical chart, the Dodgers will take it easy with the non-roster invitee with the hope he'll reenter the competition for the final spot in the rotation.
Beachy will be given a few days to rest after coming out of Friday's start with arm soreness, MLB.com reports.
His velocity was down nearly three miles per hour in the third Friday following a 40-pitch second inning. Beachy, a non-roster invitee to major league spring training, came into camp saying he was no longer rehabbing after returning from his second Tommy John surgery in 2015. This may very well take him out of the running for the No. 5 rotation spot, leaving just Mike Bolsinger and Zach Lee.
Beachy was lit up by the Diamondbacks on Friday, allowing six runs on five hits and four walks in just two innings.
That likely puts him behind Mike Bolsinger, Zach Lee, and maybe others in the race for the No. 5 starter job. Beachy's ERA sits at 7.71 this spring.
Manager Dave Roberts listed Beachy as one of the two favorites to replace the injured Brett Anderson (back) in the Dodgers' rotation, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.
Beachy joined the Dodgers with only an outside chance to earn a spot in the rotation, but a number of injuries -- including the one Anderson suffered that will sideline him 3-to-5 months -- have helped his chances, as the battle for the fifth starter job now figures to come down to him and Mike Bolsinger. Beachy may have more upside than his counterpart, but Bolsinger made 21 starts for the Dodgers last season while the injury-prone Beachy made just 20 starts total over the last four years, so the Dodgers may simply opt for the more reliable option.
Beachy was outrighted to the Dodgers' Triple-A roster but will still appear at major league spring training.
The Dodgers wanted to open up a spot on the 40-man roster, and Beachy proved to be the odd man out. He'll stay on as a non-roster invitee to spring training. Fortunately for the Dodgers, his $1.5 million contract is not guaranteed, so they can release him if he fails to make the big league roster out of spring training. It would've been tough to crack the rotation as it was, but now it will be even tougher now that he's off the 40-man roster.
Beachy signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Dodgers on Wednesday, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports.
The deal includes $2.75 million in incentives, including a roster bonus, incentives for games started and games pitched, which makes sense in Beachy's case. He has pitched just 38 big league innings since the start of 2013, with eight of those coming in two starts for the Dodgers last year, where he sported an unsavory 7.88 ERA. Considering how deep the Dodgers rotation is after a flurry of offseason moves, Beachy will have a hard time cracking the Opening Day roster as a starter, and might not even be first or second in line, should the Dodgers need a spot starter.
To make room for the return of outfielder Carl Crawford, the Dodgers optioned right-handed starter Brandon Beachy to Triple-A Oklahoma City while designating reliever Preston Guilmet for assignment.
Beachy was 0-1 with a 7.88 ERA in two starts this season, while Guilmet had been claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on July 10, his third team this season.

Making his first big-league start in nearly two years, Dodgers right-hander Brandon Beachy had an encouraging return to the mound on Saturday. Beachy threw 78 pitches, allowing three runs on five hits over four innings of work. He walked three and struck out two in the 7-1 loss to the Brewers.
Beachy, who made his return following his second Tommy John surgery, was able to hold the Brewers scoreless over the first two frames, but things fell apart in the third, when he allowed all three of his runs.
