Beaty went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a strikeout in a 3-2 loss to St. Louis on Tuesday.
Beaty went long off reliever Giovanny Gallegos in the seventh inning to knot the game at 2-2 and account for the only runs Los Angeles would score in the game. The homer bumped his season slash line up to a solid .284/.376/.420.
Beaty is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cardinals, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The recent returns of Cody Bellinger and Zack McKinstry from the 10-day injured list could result in Beaty losing out on regular playing time. Beaty had started in seven of the Dodgers' last eight games, going 5-for-23 with a home run, two walks, five runs and four RBI.
Beaty went 2-for-2 with a solo home run as Los Angeles fell 8-5 to San Francisco on Friday.
Beaty homered off Anthony DeSclafani for his second of the season and later singled in the fourth before being removed in the fifth. He's slashing a solid .282/.385/.397 but may only be an option in deep leagues due to inconsistent playing time on a stacked Dodgers team.
Beaty isn't starting Thursday's game against San Francisco, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Beaty went 2-for-14 with a double, three runs, three RBI and two walks across the last four games. Sheldon Neuse will take over in left field and bat seventh.
Beaty isn't starting Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Beaty had started each of the last two games and went 0-for-7 with three strikeouts during that time. Yoshi Tsutsugo will start in left field and bat seventh.
Manager Dave Roberts stated Saturday that Beaty has "earned opportunities" and will get starts in left field in place of the injured AJ Pollock (hamstring), Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.
Pollock is expected to be out multiple weeks, opening the door for Beaty to play on a near-everyday basis. While Pollock had been hot at the plate, Beaty has also played well of late, batting .373 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 17 games since April 20. The 28-year-old indeed got the start in left field Sunday and collected three singles in four at-bats.
Beaty went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI in a win over Seattle on Wednesday.
Beaty plated the Dodgers' first runs of the game with a two-RBI double in the fourth inning. He later brought home another runner with a single in the fifth. The 28-year-old has been on fire since returning to the big club April 24, slashing .394/.512/.545 with a whopping 18 RBI over 41 plate appearances.
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.
Beaty was optioned to the alternate training site Saturday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
The 27-year-old cracked the Opening Day roster and saw most of his action off the bench through the first two weeks of the season. Beaty went 1-for-11 with six strikeouts and could rejoin the big-league club when another bench piece is needed.
Beaty has been playing right field often this spring as he attempts to break camp with the Dodgers, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Beaty has started in right field only four times as a pro -- three times in the minors and once in 2019 with the Dodgers -- and he logged almost all his time in the field last season at first base. However, the organization strongly values versatility, so Beaty would benefit from showing that he can handle right field, even with Mookie Betts cemented at the position well into the future. Beaty is a serious contender for one of the team's final roster spots and may be earning the honor as much with his bat as with his versatility. Through 24 spring at-bats, he is hitting .292 with three RBI.
The Dodgers added Beaty to their 28-man roster Wednesday in advance of their wild-card series with the Brewers, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Beaty, catcher Keibert Ruiz and outfielder Terrance Gore will join the Dodgers for the three-game series, taking roster spots that had previously been occupied by relievers Alex Wood and Dylan Floro and second baseman Gavin Lux. During the regular season, Beaty saw action in 21 games and slashed .220/.278/.360 over 54 plate appearances.
Beaty was optioned to the alternate training site Friday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The 27-year-old earned a spot on the Opening Day roster and has a .638 OPS with two homers in 54 plate appearances. Beaty will head to the alternate site to stay fresh in hopes of rejoining the Dodgers for the final stretch of the season.
Beaty went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Angels.
In the fourth inning, Beaty reached on an infield single and scored on Corey Seager's three-run blast. Beaty then knocked a homer of his own in the sixth. The three-hit effort raised Beaty's batting average to .208 in 24 at-bats. He's added two homers, two RBI and four runs scored this season, mostly in a bench role.
Beaty is the Dodgers' emergency catcher while Will Smith remains out with a sore neck, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Smith is unavailable to catch but is not on the injured list, though that could change if he doesn't show improvement soon, according to Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register. As such, Beaty's role as emergency catcher is magnified for as long as Smith remains out and the Dodgers hold off on bringing over another backstop from their alternate training site. While the designation adds value to Beaty's role on the team, it could also hinder his playing time if Los Angeles decides to keep him available in case of an emergency situation. Beaty last started a game Monday and has notched only one at-bat since Smith got hurt Wednesday.
Beaty went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 11-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
Beaty batted ninth and covered first base in his second start of the year. His fourth-inning homer against Diamondbacks starter Luke Weaver would count as the winning run in the contest. It's Beaty's first hit in seven plate appearances in 2020. The 27-year-old typically serves as depth at the corner infield positions and rarely sees much playing time.
Beaty was added to the Dodgers' Opening Day roster Thursday.
Beaty was battling with Edwin Rios for a roster spot throughout spring training, but the expansion of rosters to 30 players allowed both infielders to make the team. Beaty figures to primarily fill a backup role at the corner infield spots.
