Beckham went 5-for-5 with a double and a pair of RBI against the Rockies at Coors Field on Wednesday. Beckham got the start at shortstop Wednesday and made the most of the opportunity, putting up his best day of the season with a season-high five hits. Beckham, a former first overall pick, had struggled mightily at the plate prior to Wednesday, with just one hit in his previous 20 at-bats, and only three multi-hit games on the season, each of which were just two-hit games. Perhaps Wednesday's big performance will get Beckham some more opportunities, although that may be tough considering usual starting shortstop Brad Miller is third among AL shortstops with 15 home runs.
Beckham went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple and run in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Rockies. The light-hitting second infielder saw his first action since July 7 and commemorated it with his third triple of the season, which plated Steven Souza, Jr. in the seventh. Beckham got the start in place of Brad Miller, but may well be back on the bench for Tuesday's contest. He's slashing just .175/.248/.369 over 103 at-bats this season.
Beckham went 2-for-3 with a triple and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Astros. Since being called back up at the beginning of June, Beckham has hit .238 (5-for-21) with two triples and a home run. If he can continue putting a charge in the ball when he makes contact, he'll have a little value in deep AL-only leagues despite his low batting average,
Beckham hit a two-run homer in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's win over Arizona. Beckham hit nine home runs in just 82 games and his power was one of the most enticing things about his profile heading into 2016. Unfortunately, it was effectively neutralized by his inability to make contact in his first stint with the big club, as he had 21 strikeouts in 16 games before he was sent down in late May. He has five strikeouts in his three games since returning June 4, and it's unlikely his .185/.243/.369 batting line will start moving in the right direction until he can figure out how to put the ball in play with some consistency.
Beckham was recalled by the Rays on Wednesday. The Rays will bring up an extra middle infielder instead of adding another reliever in the wake of Brad Boxberger being placed on the disabled list Wednesday. Beckham hit just .185 with 23 strikeouts in 54 at-bats during his stint with the Rays earlier in the season, so he figures to primarily add value with his glove rather than with his bat.
