Hayman is now tweeting that he confused Beckham. It was already known that the monk had signed a box player Gordon Beckham. Please stop reporting on this.
According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network (Twitter link), Padres has signed shortstop Tim Beckham. This is a minor league agreement.
Beckham may compete for the hierarchy of the San Diego System in the camp, but he is not a candidate to head north on an active list. You must first complete the PED suspension offer for 80 games.
Beckham is eligible to appear on the platform for the first time approximately one month before the season, so he receives a Triple-A ticket to start the time with the organization.
Either way, you cannot immediately open the location of the list at this time, but the situation may be quite different in May.
If things go well, Beckham can give the monks an alternative or complement to Julixon’s profession of two bases. The club also has useful options Ty France and Greg Garcia.
Beckham, 30, has quite a lot of roller coasters in his career. It never fulfills the promise that some had anticipated when it was chosen in the first draft of the 2008 draft.
Beckham has experienced its moments over the years and has not yet found consistency, even with useful and high-quality game sections in the majors.
Beckham has a lifelong cut line of .249 / .302 / .431 through the appearance of 1,751 plates. This is almost an average result of the league.
He is probably not a short midfield gardener and does not handle the base particularly well, but there are good reasons to believe that older ones are enough to work in small or free infields too.
