Beeks is slated to serve as the Rays' bulk reliever in Sunday's game against the Indians, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. As per usual, Beeks will enter the contest behind opener Ryne Stanek, who is expected to work no more than an inning or two. Beeks ceded a season-high five runs and eight hits his last time out May 21 against the Dodgers but maintains a 3.19 ERA over 36.2 innings for the campaign.
Beeks is likely to cover the bulk of innings behind opener Ryne Stanek in Tuesday's series-opening game against the Dodgers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The left-hander moved his record to 3-0 with an impressive three-inning scoreless outing last Wednesday against the Marlins. Beeks is notably getting plenty of rest between appearances, as he'd been inactive for seven days prior his appearance against Miami and will be on five days of rest heading into Tuesday's likely appearance. The 25-year-old owns a 2.25 ERA and 1.19 WHIP across 32 innings this season while serving in a variety of roles out of the bullpen.
Beeks (3-0) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing four hits over three scoreless innings of relief while striking out four in a 1-0 victory over the Marlins. Seven different Rays pitchers combined for the shutout, but Beeks was the only one who recorded more than four outs. The southpaw continues to thrive working behind an opener, and he'll carry a 2.25 ERA and 33:10 K:BB through 32 innings into his next outing.
Beeks will serve as the Rays' bulk reliever behind opener Ryne Stanek in Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Beeks' recent form coupled with the matchup against the Marlins' MLB-worst offense (64 wRC+) make the lefty a strong streaming option even though he won't be deployed as a traditional starter. Over his last three appearances, Beeks has surrendered just one run on six hits and four walks while striking out 16 in 14.2 innings.
Beeks (2-0) earned the win Tuesday against the Diamondbacks by allowing one run on three hits over 3.1 innings. He struck out three and did not issue a walk.

The 25-year-old has a 2.48 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 29:10 K:BB through 21 innings to begin the season.
