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. Wed, Oct 7, 2015 09:41:00 AM

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.
Sun, Jul 12, 2015 11:18:00 AM

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

Beckham had been on the shelf since May 31 due to a right hamstring strain. He'll continue to function as organizational infield depth in the minor leagues and should get another opportunity with the big league club before the end of the summer.

Tim Beckham (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with High-A Charlotte.

Beckham, who's been on the disabled list since May 31 with a right hamstring strain, made it through a Gulf Coast League scrimmage over the weekend without issue. The 25-year-old infielder has five home runs and three stolen bases in 37 games this season for the Rays, but a troubling .213 batting average and .267 on-base percentage.

Tim Beckham (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as Monday.

Beckham played in a Gulf Coast League scrimmage on Saturday and didn't have any issues with his right hamstring. He should be activated by the Rays before the end of the month.

Tim Beckham (hamstring) ran the bases on Tuesday and is close to beginning a rehab assignment.

He shouldn't need too many rehab games before being activated. Beckham has missed all of June with a right hamstring strain but could be activated by the Rays before the end of the month.
Wed, Jun 17, 2015 10:03:00 AM

Rays placed INF Tim Beckham on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

The injury forced Beckham out of Saturday's game against the Orioles and will cost him a couple of weeks on the shelf. A corresponding roster move has yet to be announced.
Sun, May 31, 2015 05:23:00 PM

Tim Beckham left Saturday's game against the Orioles with a right hamstring cramp.

Beckham pulled up lame on a groundout in the fifth inning. Nick Franklin pinch-hit for him in his next at-bat. The former No. 1 overall pick is day-to-day.

Rays recalled INF Tim Beckham from Triple-A Durham.

Beckham was just optioned to the minors last week, but the Rays need him to provide infield depth with first baseman James Loney ruled out indefinitely after suffering a broken finger. Beckham was batting just .224/.266/.459 at the time of his May 22 demotion. He's doubtful to hold mixed-league fantasy value.

Rays optioned INF Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham.

The 25-year-old infielder went 2-for-4 with his fifth home run of the season on Friday, but became a roster casualty as the Rays needed a fresh arm in the bullpen. While he has shown flashes, he's hitting just .224/.266/.459 on the year and could benefit from everyday at-bats at Triple-A.

Tim Beckham launched his fourth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Twins on Saturday.

His two-run bomb came off Twins starter Trevor May in the seventh inning. It was his lone hit on the afternoon, finishing 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts.
