Beckham could be in line to see starts both Friday and Saturday if Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is indeed shutdown for the remainder of the regular season, CSN Bay Area.

EDGE Analysis

With two lefties lined up to start for the Dodgers this weekend, the newly-acquired Beckham could see his first start at the hot corner this weekend. The veteran infielder was acquired from the Braves to form a platoon with Conor Gillaspie for however long Nunez remains sidelined. Beckham is batting just .233 with two homers in 40 at-bats against southpaws this season, so he is nothing more than a punt play in daily formats if he does indeed get a start Friday.

Beckham was traded to the Giants in exchange for cash considerations Tuesday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Following Dansby Swanson's promotion to the big leagues, Beckham was limited to a bench role for the Braves, although he did take a solid .290 batting average into the All-Star break prior to playing a part-time role afterward. The Giants are likely hoping that he can provide a veteran presence off the bench during the home stretch of the season and provide some depth to an infield that has battled various injuries over the course of the season.

Beckham went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Beckham emerged from a deep slump by hitting a tie-breaking blast in the seventh inning to give the Braves a 4-2 lead. The second baseman broke his 0-for-16 skid with a single in the first, and then connected off reliever Michael Lorenzen for his fourth homer of the year, and first since July 9. Even with his weak output of late, Beckham is still slashing .262/.354/.429, all of which significantly exceed his seven-year career averages.
