Mariners purchased the contract of INF Gordon Beckham from Triple-A Tacoma.
He'll replace the injured Robinson Cano (hand) on the active roster. Beckham was batting .300/.412/.500 with four homers through 25 games in Triple-A this season. The 31-year-old offers little in the way of fantasy value, but he'll provide some depth around the infield. May 14 - 2:05 PM

Mariners re-signed INF Gordon Beckham to a minor league contract.

The 31-year-old had a tremendous spring, slashing .340/.436/.553 with a homer and two RBI in 55 plate appearances during Cactus League play, but it wasn't enough to secure a spot on the Opening Day bench. He should get an opportunity with the M's at some point during the 2018 campaign.

Mariners released INF Gordon Beckham.

Beckham had an excellent showing for the Mariners in the Cactus League, but he was always extremely unlikely to make the 25-man roster because of his inability to play shortstop. It gives the infielder a chance to hook on somewhere else, but don't be surprised if Seattle brings him back if he doesn't find a team that can give him a big-league roster spot.

Mariners re-signed INF Gordon Beckham to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Beckham made it up to the Mariners briefly last season but spent almost all of the year at Triple-A Tacoma. The 31-year-old is merely organizational depth at this point in his career.

Mariners purchased the contract of INF Gordon Beckham from Triple-A Tacoma.

The 30-year-old former top prospect has spent the entire season at Triple-A Tacoma where he has slashed .262/.313/.393 with nine homers and 45 RBI. He isn't likely to see enough playing time to be relevant from a fantasy perspective.

Mariners signed INF Gordon Beckham to a minor league contract.

Beckham opted out of his minor league contract with the Giants last week but didn't take long to catch on elsewhere. He'll provide veteran infield depth at Triple-A Tacoma.

Giants released INF Gordon Beckham.

Beckham reportedly asked for his release. He was always a long shot to make the team with so many mouths to feed in San Francisco's crowded infield. Beckham was due a $100,000 retention bonus on March 28, which was also a contributing factor in his release. The 30-year-old hit just .194 over 36 Cactus League at-bats.

Giants signed INF Gordon Beckham to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that he could make $1.25 million if he's in the majors. Beckham finished last season with the Giants and will compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster during spring training. Offseason addition Jae-Gyun Hwang will also be in that mix. Beckham, 30, owns a lowly .622 OPS since the start of the 2014 season and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Giants acquired INF Gordon Beckham from the Braves for INF Rich Rodriguez.

Beckham will give the Giants some infield depth this week with Eduardo Nunez and Brandon Crawford banged up, but he will not be eligible for the postseason. The 30-year-old is batting just .217/.300/.354 across 273 plate appearances this season.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Giants are "very close" to acquiring infielder Gordon Beckham from the Braves.

Eduardo Nunez is out with a hamstring injury, so Beckham would provide some infield depth this week. He would not be eligible for the postseason. Beckham, 30, is batting just .217/.300/.354 over 273 plate appearances this season and will hit free agency this winter.

Gordon Beckham went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The double was Beckham's 11th of the season. He picked up the RBI two-bagger in the sixth inning to boost the Braves to a 3-0 lead. The 29-year-old infielder holds no fantasy intrigue and is hitting just .210/.300/.335 with four homers and 24 RBI over an even 200 at-bats.

Braves activated INF Gordon Beckham from the 15-day disabled list.

Beckham wound up missing five weeks with a left hamstring strain. He was batting .284/.382/.442 in 31 games before the injury, but we wouldn't expect him to keep that up. Beckham, 29, owns a .681 career OPS.
