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.
Mar 23 - 6:00 PM

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.
Feb 8 - 12:36 PM

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.

Gordon Beckham (hamstring) went 0-for-3 in a minor league rehab game with the GCL Braves on Monday.

Beckham has been sidelined since June 1 with a left hamstring strain. Braves interim manger Brian Snitker said Monday that he's about a week away.

Gordon Beckham (hamstring) is expected to begin a rehab assignment within the next few days.

He's been sidelined three weeks with a strained hamstring. The 29-year-old might only need a few games to get back up to speed. He was hitting .284 before the injury.

Braves placed INF Gordon Beckham on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Beckham suffered the injury Wednesday night while trying to beat out a double play groundball. He figures to miss around three weeks. Brandon Snyder has been promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move.

Gordon Beckham was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Giants due to a left hamstring strain.

Beckham strained the hamstring on a RBI double play grounder in the sixth inning. The 29-year-old infielder has already dealt with a similar problem this season, as an injury to that same hammy landed him on the disabled list near the end of April. He could well be heading back to the disabled list.

Gordon Beckham exited Wednesday's game against the Giants with a possible hamstring injury.

Beckham appeared to suffer the injury while running out a double play grounder in the bottom of the sixth inning. He was replaced at shortstop by Chase d'Arnaud when the Braves took the field in the top of the seventh. Beckham spent time on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring in late April. A return to the disabled list could be in the cards if he re-aggravated that injury.

Gordon Beckham went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in a Braves' 7-2 win over the Marlins on Saturday.

With a couple runners on in the seventh inning, Beckham took an Edwin Jackson offering out to left-center for his second home run of the year. He also doubled and scored in the contest. Beckham has quietly been very good for the Braves in 27 games this year, batting .317/.417/.488 with 14 RBI and 11 runs scored.

Gordon Beckham pinch hit in the sixth inning and clobbered a two-run homer that temporarily put the Braves on top of the Brewers on Wednesday.

Beckham picked up another base hit later in the game, but all of his damage came on a two-run shot off lefty Chris Capuano in the sixth. He's now hitting .310/.402/.451 and is proof that almost any big leaguer can be productive in small samples, if utilized correctly. He just doesn't currently see enough playing time to matter in standard fantasy formats.

Gordon Beckham went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a run scored against the Phillies on Friday.

Beckham, who made the start out of the No. 2 spot, is now batting .394 (13-for-33) in 10 games since coming off the disabled list. We obviously don’t expect it to last given his track record, so steer clear in mixed formats, but there’s opportunity in this infield right now.
