Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 40 | Run: 45 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 40

Beaty increased his OPS in each of his four years at Belmont, batting .382/.469/.668 as a senior in 2015 and becoming the highest-drafted player in Bruins history when the Dodgers grabbed him in the 12th round. He broke out in 2017, winning the Texas League MVP award and leading the Double-A circuit in batting (.326) and OPS (.883). An intercostal strain and a torn thumb ligament ruined his encore, limiting him to just 34 games last year.

With a disciplined approach and quality hand-eye coordination, Beaty makes repeated line-drive contact to all fields. He made some adjustments to his left-handed swing in mid-2017 that allowed him to drive the ball more often for some pull power, but he still stands out more for his hitting and on-base ability than as a home run threat. He has struggled against left-handers in the upper Minors, so he'll have to adapt or risk being tagged as a platoon player.

A fringy runner with an average arm, Beaty has split most of his career between first base and third base. He's a decent defender at either corner and also has made brief appearances at second base, left field and right field as a pro. He also did some catching as an amateur and his versatility will come in handy as he tries to crack a Los Angeles roster with an overload of corner-infield options.
