Tim Beckham went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Red Sox.

The whiffs are nothing new for Beckham, who now has a 160/35 K/BB ratio and a 28.5 percent strikeout rate. He's been very productive since arriving with the Orioles, though, with 10 home runs and a .310 average over 47 games.

Tim Beckham hit a big three-run homer in Baltimore's victory over the Yankees on Sunday.

Beckham has slowed down since his white-hot start to his Orioles' career, but he's still a productive hitter at the top of the lineup. The homer was the 23rd of his season; a three-run shot to give the Orioles a 5-1 lead in the fourth innings. For the year, Beckham has a very strong .280/.330/.481 line on the year. It's fun to see the former first-overall pick play well.

Tim Beckham launched a solo homer on Tuesday in Toronto.

Beckham's blast off of Joe Biagini in the eighth inning broke a tie at the time, but the Orioles' bullpen coughed up the game in the ninth. The shortstop now has 21 longballs on the season, with nine of them coming across 40 games with the Orioles.

Tim Beckham had just one hit in four at-bats Saturday in Cleveland, but that hit was good for a solo home run.

Beckham has been a pleasant surprise for the Orioles, and apparently he just needed a change of scenery to realize his potential. After three-plus seasons bouncing between Tampa Bay and Triple-A Durham, he posted 26 home runs in 238 games with the Rays. He has eight homers and 21 RBI in just 37 games in Baltimore, and 20 homers overall in 2016. This is his first-ever season with a double-digit home run total.

Tim Beckham went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Beckham ran his most recent hitting streak to 10 games with the three singles. He's become an offensive monster since a deadline deal to the Orioles, hitting everything in sight. The 27-year-old is hitting .297/.342/.475 with 18 homers, 55 RBI, 58 runs scored and six steals between the Rays and O's this season.

Tim Beckham blasted a three-run homer in a win over the Red Sox on Saturday.

His bomb off starter Eduardo Rodriguez was the crowning blow of a five-run second inning for the Orioles. The former first overall draft pick has been playing every day and batting leadoff since being traded from the Rays to the Orioles in a deadline deal. For the season he has a .293 batting average with 18 home runs and 53 RBI in 423 at-bats.
Aug 26 - 7:25 PM

Tim Beckham homered as part of a two-hit effort Wednesday in the Orioles’ loss to Seattle.

Beckham led off the game with a solo blast and broke a 3-3 tie with an RBI single in the fifth. He’s been impossibly hot since arriving in a deadline deal trade with Tampa Bay, hitting an absurd .485 for the month of August. The former first overall pick has already established new career-highs in both home runs (17) and RBI (48) and will soon have a chance to unseat J.J. Hardy (wrist) as the team's everyday shortstop.
Aug 16 - 8:08 PM

Tim Beckham finished 3-for-4 with a homer Monday against the Mariners.

Beckham didn't switch leagues or even divisions, but something about Baltimore so obviously agrees with him. He's 29-for-58 for his new team, raising his overall average from .259 to .296.
Aug 15 - 2:07 AM

Tim Beckham collected three doubles with a single, a walk, three runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's win in Oakland.

Tim Beckham went 2-for-4 and hit a solo home run in a win over the Tigers on Saturday.

His eighth-inning shot was one of four longballs the Orioles hit in the ballgame. The first overall pick of the 2008 draft is having his most productive season to date, batting .282 with 15 homers and 41 RBI in 92 games. He was traded from the Rays to the Orioles at the deadline.
Aug 5 - 11:33 PM

Tim Beckham went 4-for-4 and swatted his 14th home run of the season as the Orioles fell to the Tigers on Friday.

Beckham has been on fire since being acquired by the Orioles and Friday was no exception. His solo homer off of Justin Verlander tied the score at 1-1 in the second inning. He added singles in each of his next three trips to the dish. Beckham is now hitting .279/.331/.453 with 14 homers and 40 RBI on the season.
Aug 4 - 10:03 PM

Tim Beckham went 3-for-4 with his first home run as a member of the Orioles in Thursday's loss to the Tigers.

Beckham has been terrific since being acquired at Monday's trade deadline, going 7-for-12 with three doubles, a triple and Thursday's homer. He was already having a career year in Tampa, and perhaps the move to a more hitter-friendly park and more explosive lineup will take the 27-year-old's offensive game to an even higher level. Beckham is batting .271/.323/.438 with 13 homers, 39 RBI, 35 runs scored and five stolen bases between the Rays and O's.
