Beckham is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the Twins.

Regular shortstop Jordy Mercer injured his quadriceps in Saturday's game and was placed on the 10-day injured list, so Detroit has playing time for the taking in the short term. Beckham is slashing .154/.313/.462 through 13 at-bats this season with a home run and two runs scored.
