Rays' Tim Beckham: Versatility could be key to playing time in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Beckham, the first overall pick in 2008, could possibly be utilized in the outfield this season, thereby increasing his chances for regular playing time, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

The talented but underwhelming Beckham has been rather enigmatic to date in his career, with a .238 average, 14 homers and 54 RBI in 151 big league games. His two stints with the Rays last season were a fitting microcosm of his ability to both wow and disappoint. On the plus side, Beckham slashed .327/.365/.520 with seven doubles, three triples, two homers, nine RBI and 15 runs scored in a 29-game stint between the beginning of the season's second half and the end of August. That stretch included a three-game span from July 18-21 when the 27-year-old tied a franchise record by hitting safely in eight straight at-bats. The other side of the coin was exemplified by his unsightly 31.2 percent strikeout and 66 percent contact rates, as well as gaffes on the bases that precipitated a demotion back to Triple-A Durham for the final month of the regular season. However, Beckham's undeniable athleticism, which was evidenced by his ability to pick up first base quickly when deployed there during a 42-inning experiment in 2016, could be the key to clearing the path for playing time in 2017. With Brad Miller looking increasingly likely to be the team's starting second baseman now that a viable option at first exists in the newly re-signed Logan Morrison, Beckham is expected to be given a look in the outfield come spring, with his above-average speed and arm likely to shorten his learning curve. Already capable of playing all four infield spots, becoming at least a serviceable option at a fifth position at a minimum would greatly enhance Beckham's chances of securing regular playing time and provide him some much-needed reps.

Rays' Tim Beckham: Candidate for starting second base job in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckham is a candidate to take over the Rays' currently vacant second base job this coming spring, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

The 2008 first-round pick is one of the two main candidates, along with Nick Franklin, that is expected to vie for the second-base job that belonged to the departed Logan Forsythe. Beckham slashed .247/.300/.434 with 12 doubles, five triples, five homers and 16 RBI over 198 at-bats in 2016 while sporting a bloated 31.2 percent strikeout rate. Although the 27-year-old boasts superior speed and and modest power, his motivation has come into question before. The most recent example came last Aug. 31, when a lack of hustle led to him forgo a scoring opportunity and earned him a demotion to Triple-A Durham for the duration of the campaign. Beckham does bring plenty of upside, however, so the expected battle with Franklin should be one of the more interesting to monitor this spring.

Rays' Tim Beckham: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckham agreed to a one-year, $885,000 contract with the Rays on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Beckham was sent down after striking out 21 times in 78 plate appearances in August and did not return at any point in September. The first overall pick in 2008, he has provided defensive versatility for the Rays but little else over the past two seasons. He will not be assured of a spot on the Opening Day roster.

Rays' Tim Beckham: Will not be promoted in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckham will not be called back up to the major league team this season, MLB Network Radio reports.

Beckham was optioned to Triple-A Durham on the last day of August after a baserunning mistake, and with the Rays not having much to play for down the stretch, they'll elect to end his season early. The 26-year-old showed some slight improvement over his rookie campaign, but will still finish the season with a disappointing slash line of .247/.300/.434 with 67 strikeouts in 64 games.

Rays' Tim Beckham: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays optioned Beckham to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beckham showed a lack of hustle in Wednesday's afternoon affair when he failed to score on a hit by teammate Kevin Kiermaier, so the Rays decided to send him to the minors as a teaching exercise. Beckham figures to rejoin the big club at some point in September.
