2018 You know that guy with the boring but sneaky-helpful profile? He can play any of the corners, hit a little, take a walk, pull an occasional grooved fastball over the wall ... maybe even start a season’s worth of games for Oakland someday? Matt Beaty knows that guy.

DateQuestionAnswer
2019-10-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was impressed by Matt Beaty's performance this year. He seems like someone who didn't stand out due to lack of explosive tools, but has just hit at every level he's played in, now including the majors. Do you have any sense of how LAD views him/his role with team?
(Christina from Ft. Lauderdale)
I think that's a good read on his history/outlook entering the season. The Dodgers have just seemed to churn these guys out and have them be better than anyone thought, for at least short periods of time (Edwin Rios, Kyle Garlick, etc.).

I don't think they view him as more than organizational depth, really. He's a useful piece for them but seems like the type of guy they'd move on from if he ever got expensive. (Craig Goldstein)
