Tim Beckham had a two-run homer and a two-run single Thursday against the Pirates.
Beckham already has a roster spot. The question is whether the Rays will use him at shortstop against lefties or if they'll give Brad Miller a shot as the full-timer. Beckham helped himself today, especially in homering off a very tough lefty in Tony Watson, but he's still hitting just .194 this spring. The Rays should go ahead and give Miller the opportunity to sink or swim. Mar 31 - 4:58 PM

Tim Beckham is still sore after being hit on the shin Thursday.

He'll rest Friday but is hoping to be back in action Saturday. Beckham is hitting just .129 this spring as he tries to win a spot as a utility infielder.

Tim Beckham went 0-for-3 on Monday and is 3-for-22 with a 7/1 K/BB ratio this spring.

Beckham posted a respectable .222/.274/.429 line in his 203 at-bats for the Rays last year, which seemed likely to earn him a spot as a utility infielder this spring. However, if he continues to struggle, the team could send him down and turn to Nick Franklin or look outside of the organization for a backup. There's some urgency here, given Brad Miller's throwing difficulties this spring.
Mar 14 - 4:03 PM

The Rays will look primarily to internal options Tim Beckham and Nick Franklin to play shortstop next season.

Asdrubal Cabrera is headed to free agency this winter, so the position will be up for grabs in the spring. Beckham and Franklin only received sporadic playing time this season, so it's far from a sure thing. Rays president Matt Silverman hasn't ruled out a veteran addition, but prospect Daniel Robertson and minor league infielder Taylor Motter could also be in the mix.

Tim Beckham hit a walk-off two-run single to end Saturday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays.

Beckham entered the ninth with an 0-for-2 day working, but he banished that boring line with a two-run single off Blue Jays reliever Roberto Osuna to flip a 3-2 disadvantage into a 4-3 win. Nice hit, particularly given that the 25-year-old second baseman is slashing just .223/.270/.437 with nine homers and 35 RBI over an even 200 at-bats this season.

Tim Beckham's only hit in five at-bats was a big one, as his three-run home run set the Rays up to beat the Astros on Monday.

Beckham took Scott Kazmir yard with two runners aboard in the first inning, extending the Rays' lead to 4-0. It's his first home run since rejoining the Rays to start the second half. He has six round-trippers overall with 25 RBI and a .227/.287/.440 batting line.

Tim Beckham went 2-for-4 with a triple and four RBI as the Rays trampled the Tigers on Tuesday.

Beckham put the Rays up 1-0 with an RBI single in the second inning. The Rays had the bases loaded for him with the eighth and he promptly unloaded them with a triple as part of a five-run frame. Beckham has been on fire since rejoining the team to begin the second half, batting .346 (9-for-26) in 10 games.

Tim Beckham delivered a two-run single in the eighth inning on Friday, leading the Rays to a come-from-behind 3-1 victory over the Orioles.

The Rays entered the eighth trailing 1-0, but broke through with an RBI single by John Jaso to tie the game. After loading the bases with two outs, Beckham smacked a two-run single off Darren O'Day to put the Rays on top, and Jake McGee slammed the door the following inning. Beckham finished the night 1-for-2 plus a walk and is now hitting .236/.300/.453 with 18 RBI on the season.

Rays recalled INF Tim Beckham from Triple-A Durham.

Beckham has hit .213/.267/.426 with five homers and three steals over 37 games with the big club this season. He should see plenty of time at shortstop while Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) is on the shelf.

Rays activated INF Tim Beckham from the 15-day disabled list, optioned to Triple-A Durham.

Wed, Jun 17, 2015 10:03:00 AM
