I'd rather roll the dice with Semien or Garcia, but I'm fine with Beckham being a stop gap. It's pretty clear he's a utility player at this point. 2500+ PA's with a .248 career average, vastly overrated glove, doesn't walk and doesn't steal bases. He does have a hell of a PR team though.
Garcia had a lower OPS at AAA than Beckham this year- only 22 - so a nice prospect- but I don't see where that makes sense- I think he needs another full year at AAA or a year in MLB as a utility guy before I'd make that move.

Semian - maybe- but I still think we have bigger problems- not ideal- but he's probably our best 3rd baseman on the team right now.
