Dodgers: Matt Beaty Opens Up On Frustrations Over Being DFA’d

The writing had been on the walls for Matt Beaty for quite some time. As successful as a hitter as he was at the minor league level, the Dodgers never really had the room on their roster to get him reps. Add in the fact that Edwin Rios is basically the power-hitting version of Beaty, and it was clear he wasn’t sticking around for long.

But Beaty spent 3 seasons in the big leagues playing with the Dodgers. That resulted in a combined 556 plate appearances, with a decent chunk of those coming off of the bench.
