Tim Beckham blasted a three-run homer on Tuesday, powering the Rays to a 5-4 victory over the Orioles.
His three-run shot capped off a five-run uprising in the second inning off of O's starter Wade Miley. While it was his lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon, it was the biggest blow in the game. He has filled in admirably for the injured Matt Duffy this season, hitting .262/.316/.419 with 12 bombs and 36 RBI. Jul 25 - 10:40 PM

Rays placed INF Tim Beckham on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 6, with a sprained left ankle.

It's an injury Beckham has dealt with for a while and the club has decided it'd be best to shut him down for a bit. He should return shortly after the All-Star break, but with Brad Miller back, Beckham's future playing time is in question.

Updating an earlier report, Tim Beckham was scratched from Thursday's game against the Red Sox with a left ankle injury.

Tim Beckham went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in the Rays' 6-5 win over the Cubs on Tuesday.

Tim Beckham had a single and stole a base in Thursday's loss to the Pirates.

Playing his second game at second base, Beckham swiped his fifth base in eight tries this season. The 27-year-old also has 10 homers, giving him an outside shot at a double-double this year. The acquisition of Adeiny Hechavarria hurt Beckham's playing time at short but slid him over to the keystone, where he should patrol most of the time. Brad Miller's eventual return might change some roles, but the Rays will cross that bridge when they come to it.

Tim Beckham is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Beckham played the last two days after returning from a bruised hand, but he'll take a seat in this one. It looks to be a simple day off. Daniel Robertson and Taylor Featherston will be the Rays' middle infielders Sunday.

Tim Beckham exited Monday's game versus the Reds after being hit on the left hand by a pitch.

Beckham looked to be in a lot of pain when he was plunked by a Scott Feldman offering in the bottom of the fourth inning. He stayed in to run but then didn't take the field for defense in the top of the fifth. The Rays should have more on Beckham later.

The 27-year-old should return to the starting lineup Friday night at Comerica Park.
