Orioles' manager Buck Showalter said Saturday that Tim Beckham will open the 2018 season as the team's starting third baseman.
With Manny Machado shifting over to shortstop, Beckham will man the hot corner on a daily basis. Beckham has only appeared in nine games at third base at the major league level, while shortstop was the only position he manned for the Orioles during the 2017 season. The dual eligibility will help his fantasy value for 2018 though, provided he logs enough games to qualify there before Machado is dealt. Jan 27 - 12:10 PM

Orioles and INF Tim Beckham avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.35 million contract.

Beckham was arbitration-eligible for the first time. He batted .278/.328/.454 with 22 homers for the Rays and Orioles in 2017 in a breakout season.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Tim Beckham has changed agents and will now be represented by the Wasserman Media Group.

The move comes as Beckham prepares for a massive raise, with projecting him to make $3.1 million in his second year of arbitration. He made $885,000 in 2017 and had a breakout season for the Orioles, hitting .306 with 10 homers and 26 RBI in 50 games after coming over in a midseason trade from Tampa Bay. The former No. 1 overall pick should get something close to everyday at-bats with the O's in 2018, but where he's going to play is still in question. Manny Machado wants to move from third base to shortstop for his walk year.

Time Beckham is not in the starting lineup for the Orioles' game against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Wed, Sep 20, 2017 04:13:00 PM

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.
