27-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Los Angeles Dodgers
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Beaty emerged from relative obscurity to play in 99 games for a 106-win Dodger club; he was the Texas League MVP in 2017, but Beaty was not a top prospect on anyone's list heading into 2019. Called up initially to replace A.J. Pollock on the roster, Beaty went on to total 268 plate appearances and was even a little better than league average with the bat. Never a big walker, Beaty displayed strong bat-to-ball skills in the minors with K-rates in the low-teens, and that skill carried over to the highest level. On account of his consistent, quality contact, Statcast says Beaty deserved to hit .280 in his debut season. Unfortunately, he was a negative on defense between mostly left field and first base, so there will be a lot of pressure on his bat at all times. As the roster stands now, Beaty projects to be a backup or perhaps Triple-A depth to start the 2020 season. Read Past Outlooks

August 1, 2020
Beaty went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 11-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
ANALYSIS
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.
