I'd give each a C+/D-, a bit higher than I'd like for Beckham's defense and Viciedo's power which seem to be the only thing these guys can do consistently. And both with some of the worst approaches at the plate I've seen in supposedly major league regulars.
It was known going in that Beckham was not in the lineup for his bat, it was also known that Viciedo was a complete gamble all the way around, and it proved to be a losing gamble in the long run.
