Dodgers’ first baseman and outfielder Matt Beaty started a rehab assignment with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes today, according to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register.

As Plunkett notes, Beaty is eligible to return from the disabled list on June 13 when the Dodgers open up a home stand against the Chicago Cubs.

Beaty has been mixed and matched in his time with the big league club. He should continue to see a fair share of at-bats against left-handed pitching upon his return.

The 26-year-old has 42 plate appearances under his belt, in which he has accumulated seven runs batted in with just a 61 wRC+ and -0.1 WAR.

It is not out of the realm of possibility that Beaty sticks in Triple-A Oklahoma City upon his activation.
