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

Could benefit from shortened season

April 29, 2020
Beaty's chances of making the Opening Day roster are likely to improve if the 2020 campaign is played, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Beaty was already a strong contender for a roster spot prior to the suspension of play, but his chance of breaking camp with the big club would increase further with an abbreviated season and the probability of expanded rosters. Such a scenario could allow both Beaty and Edwin Rios -- whom Beaty was rumored to be battling for the final roster spot -- to make the squad in reserve roles.
