Tim Beckham underwent an MRI on his groin Tuesday.

It sounds like he is going to be placed on the disabled list, even if there is no major structural damage. Beckham initially injured his groin at spring training and then aggravated it in Monday's loss to the Indians. The 28-year-old has batted just .179/.247/.262 through 23 games this season.

Tim Beckham had to leave Monday's game against the Indians after aggravating a groin injury.

Beckham originally tweaked his groin during spring training and just barely avoided the disabled list to start the season. It sounds like he might be headed there now, as Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he was concerned. Beckham has also dealt with a sore Achilles, although the groin ailment seems more serious.

Tim Beckham went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

The Orioles were blanked on the scoreboard up until the ninth inning, when Beckham provided a two-run blast of meaningless production. His home run merely drew the O's to within 6-2 and there would be no miracle comeback to follow. Beckham was dealing with a groin injury near the end of spring training, but has played in each of the first two games of the regular-season campaign without issue. The infielder swatted a career-best 22 home runs between the Rays and Orioles last year.

Tim Beckham (groin) expects to be ready for Opening Day.

Beckham tweaked his groin last week in a Grapefruit League game, but he participated in a simulated scrimmage on Tuesday and reported feeling great. The 28-year-old will open as the Orioles' starting third baseman with Manny Machado shifting over to shortstop.
Mar 28 - 2:30 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter told reporters that the next couple of days will be important for Tim Beckham (groin) if he is not to open the year on the disabled list.

"We can't go from the training room to the Opening Day roster," Showalter said. Showalter tweaked the groin injury on Thursday against the Red Sox, but his exit was deemed "precautionary." He could return to baseball activities on Sunday before the Orioles leave the Grapefruit League and Florida, but there is a chance that the former first-overall pick could open the season on the disabled list.

Tim Beckham tweaked his groin in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.

He exited the game as a precaution and will also be held out Friday against Tampa Bay. Manager Buck Showalter is hoping to have Beckham back in the lineup before the Orioles leave Florida on Sunday. The former No. 1 pick will open the year at third base with Manny Machado moving back to shortstop.
Mar 22 - 5:29 PM

Tim Beckham went 3-for-3 with an RBI on Wednesday to raise his spring average to .286.

Beckham is trying to convince manager Buck Showalter to keep him in the leadoff spot to begin the season. He spent the last six weeks of last season hitting there, batting .265/.314/.448 with seven homers and 28 runs scored in 41 games. He actually had a lot more success in his first few games for the Orioles before being moved up (he hit .306/.348/.523 in 50 games for Baltimore overall). Ideally, he'd probably hit lower in the order, though the Rays don't have any sort of prototypical leadoff man to occupy the top spot. Colby Rasmus is one alternative to Beckham.

Tim Beckham homered, doubled and drove in three runs Friday versus the Pirates.

Beckham served as the Orioles' leadoff hitter after being acquired from the Rays last year, but he's spent more time at the bottom of the order this spring. It will be very interesting to see how that works itself out; he's a mixed league option while hitting at the top of the lineup, but probably not if he's stuck at the bottom.
Mar 2 - 5:18 PM

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.
Jan 12 - 5:05 PM

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 MLBTradeRumors.com 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.
Jan 9 - 10:35 AM

Tim Beckham admitted after Friday's game that his hamstring is still bothering him and that he probably shouldn't be playing on it.

Beckham rejoined the lineup after missing nearly a week, but his hamstring injury continued to bother him throughout Friday's game. As this point, expect him to be held out of the lineup for the final two games over the weekend.

Tim Beckham went 0-for-4 and struck out twice as the Orioles were shut out by the Rays on Friday.

As a team, the Orioles tallied just four hits on the evening against Jake Odorizzi and a host of Rays' relievers. It was Beckham's first start in nearly a week due to a strained right hamstring. He's hitting .278/.328/.454 with 22 homers and 62 RBI on the season.

Tim Beckham (hamstring) is back in the Orioles' lineup Friday.

It will be his first start since last Saturday, as he's been battling a strained right hamstring. Beckham is shortstop and hitting leadoff.
