Angels acquire Beckham

Home / Angels / Angels acquire Beckham

Nope.  Not that Beckham.  Unlike his namesake, Gordon Beckham formerly of the White Sox, is nowhere near the top of his game.

For some reason, Dipito though he should pick up a mediocre middle infielder who will only hit against lefties.  Beckham has a less than impressive .221/.263/.336 slashline.

Oh but wait!  He has an .803 OPS against lefties.  Last I checked, Grant Green had a .313/.321/.401 and an .858 OPS against lefties and does just fine in the middle infield.

One day after Richards went down, this is a baffling move for sure.
