Kansas City Royals Agree To Trade With San Francisco Giants

The Kansas City Royals keep making moves.

The San Francisco Giants acquired outfielder and first baseman Matt Beaty from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for cash considerations.

Beaty is known for his versatility and has experience playing both infield and outfield positions, making him a versatile addition to the Giants' roster.

Despite being a left-handed hitter, Beaty is not expected to be used as a platoon option for the Giants' already lefty-heavy outfield.

However, he will provide depth in the corner outfield while the team's injured players recover. Outfielders Mitch Haniger, Austin Slater, and Luis Gonzalez were all placed on the injured list, while non-roster outfielder Stephen Piscotty was released.

Over his four-year career, the 29-year-old has compiled a .249/.320/.405 triple-slash line, with 18 home runs, 92 RBIs, seven stolen bases and 85 runs scored across 260 games played.
