Jon Heyman reports that the Giants signed infielder Gordon Beckham to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. If he makes the club he’ll make $1.25 million.
Beckham finished the 2016 season with the Giants after coming over in trade from Atlanta just before the end of the season. For the Braves he hit .217/.300/.354 with five home runs and 30 RBI in 273 plate appearances. For the Giants went 0-for-5 in six plate appearances.
Beckham can play second, third and short and should be in the mix for a utility role in San Francisco.
