Tim Beckham went 1-for-4 with two RBI as the Rays topped the Red Sox in Boston on Friday.

Beckham has held his own after being thrust into the starting role at shortstop this season, slashing .264/.289/.457 with six homers and 19 RBI. It'll be interesting to see how the playing time shakes out one Matt Duffy returns from the disabled list.

Tim Beckham is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. Daniel Robertson will cover shortstop. The Rays also have Jesus Sucre catching over Derek Norris.

Tim Beckham hit a pair of two-run home runs in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Beckham was picking up what Marlins starter Dan Straily was putting down, going deep in the second and fourth innings. It's now the second two-homer game this year for the 27-year-old, who has six homers, 15 RBI and 14 runs scored through 27 games. It's taken a while for the former first overall draft pick to find his groove at the major league level, but he's certainly enjoying a good start to the 2017 campaign.

Tim Beckham hit a two-run double in the Rays' victory over the Marlins on Monday.

Tim Beckham went 3-for-5 and drilled two solo home runs but the Rays still lost to the Orioles on Wednesday.

He homered in the third and again in the fifth to draw the Rays within a run, but they ultimately fell in extra innings. Beckham has been serving as the starting shortstop since the season began in the absence of the injured Matt Duffy. Beckham has hit well enough that there could be a position battle when Duffy returns to action. Beckham is hitting .280/.299/.493 with four homers, 10 runs scored and eight RBI in 78 plate appearances.

Beckham is getting everyday playing time while Matt Duffy recuperates from injury. He is batting .254/.267/.407 with two home runs, eight runs scored and five RBI in 61 plate appearances.

The homer tripled Beckham's RBI count from one to three. He has a 17/1 K/BB ratio to go along with his .227 average in 44 at-bats. The Rays will be a lot better off once Matt Duffy gets back.

Tim Beckham delivered a three-run triple off Clay Buchholz in Friday's game against the Phillies.

Mar 31 - 4:15 PM

Tim Beckham (hip) expects to return to the starting lineup Wednesday.

Beckham was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to an irritated hip flexor, but he's slated to go through a workout on Tuesday. Barring any setbacks, he should be cleared to return to action. Beckham is expected to begin the year as the Rays' starting shortstop with Matt Duffy (heel) on the mend.

Tim Beckham was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to an irritated hip flexor.

Beckham suffered the injury on Saturday. That he was originally in the lineup suggests it's a day-to-day thing. If healthy, Beckham is slated to be the Rays' Opening Day shortstop with Matt Duffy (heel) still sidelined.
Mar 26 - 11:10 AM

Tim Beckham homered to give the Rays their only run of the game Friday against the Pirates.

He also walked. Beckham spent the last month of last season in the minors as punishment for not hustling, but since he's out of options, he's pretty much a lock for the Rays roster this year. He's 6-for-16 with four extra-base hits and four walks right now.
Mar 10 - 4:20 PM

Tim Beckham went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a double in Wednesday's loss to Colombia.

Beckham came through with a two-run home run as part of a four-run second inning for the Rays. The dinger was his first of the spring. Ditto for the double he would hit later in the contest. The former No. 1 overall pick hit .247/.300/.434 with five homers and 16 RBI over the course of 198 at-bats last season. He does not hold significant fantasy intrigue and will be once again taking on a utility role for the coming campaign.
Mar 8 - 9:56 PM

Tim Beckham is slated to make his outfield debut on Wednesday.

Matt Duffy is projected to be the Rays' regular shortstop this season, so Beckham is trying to expand his versatility. He's been working with first base coach Rocco Baldelli on making the transition to the outfield. The 27-year-old has never played the outfield in pro ball.

Beckham doubled to lead off the game but was stranded. He then tripled and scored in the third inning as the game's first run. He is slated to function in a utility role with the Rays this season, though that could change if he continues to light the world on fire throughout the spring.
