Rays' Jalen Beeks: Candidate for rotation fill-in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks, who threw 49 pitches over three innings in a simulated game Friday, is a candidate to handle some spot starts early in the season if the current absences of Tyler Glasnow (undisclosed), Yonny Chirinos (undisclosed) and Brendan McKay (undisclosed) extend into the 2020 campaign, Juan Toribio of reports.

The left-hander is certainly capable of handling rotation assignments if called upon to take them, as he started 94 minor-league games over four-plus years in the Red Sox organization. Beeks also logged three starts for the Rays last season and threw two or more innings on 40 occasions overall. Given the aforementioned temporary vacancies on the pitching depth chart, the expectation is Beeks will continue to have his arm built up over what remains of summer camp.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Working off mound regularly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks has been able to throw regular bullpen sessions in his local area during the suspension of spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Pitching coach Kyle Snyder provided the update on Beeks, who he's kept in regular contact with during the shutdown. The southpaw, who put in time as both a spot starter and long reliever for the Rays last season, is projected to potentially serve as the sixth member of the starting rotation during the 2020 season, if it indeed unfolds.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Occasional sixth starter?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks was on track to potentially serve as a sixth starter on occasion this season in addition to his relief duties when spring training was suspended, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The young southpaw put together a strong body of work during Grapefruit League play, posting a 1.93 ERA and .100 BAA across 9.1 innings over six appearances. Beeks was deployed as a starter in just three of the 33 appearances he made for the Rays in 2019, but he operated in that capacity on a full-time basis in five of seven minor-league stops across four-plus seasons in the Red Sox's organizational ranks. However, it remains to be seen if what will almost certainly be an abbreviated 2020 regular season largely negates the need for the Rays to manage their set starting rotation as carefully as they'd initially planned to.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Continues stretching out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks, who fired 2.2 scoreless innings in a Grapefruit League loss to the Blue Jays on Monday, is being stretched out for possible spot starts or bulk-reliever duties this coming season, Zachary Silver of reports.

The left-hander has fired 9.1 innings across six appearances thus far this spring and looked good doing so, with Beeks generating a 1.93 ERA, 0.54 WHIP and .100 BAA over the modest sample. It's certainly an encouraging body of work for the 26-year-old, who made 33 appearances overall in his first full Rays campaign in 2019, three of those as a starter. The Rays hope Beeks' solid control thus far is a harbinger for the regular season, as he struggled with a 3.5 BB/9 over his 104.1 innings last season.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Impresses in spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks, who fired a scoreless second inning in Saturday's 4-3 Grapefruit League loss to the Red Sox, was impressive with his changeup during the outing, Juan Toribio of reports.

Beeks needed only 10 pitches to get his three outs, with four of those offerings coming in the form of changeups. Beeks acknowledged after the game that he worked on various aspects of his repertoire over the offseason in an effort to even out some of the rough edges he displayed in an otherwise solid 2019. Beeks appeared in 33 games (three starts) for the Rays, posting a strong 6-3 record but also recording an elevated 1.49 WHIP and 3.5 BB/9. He again projects as a left-handed relief option this season capable of working multiple innings if necessary.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Lit up in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks recorded two outs but was charged for four runs (two earned) on three hits and two walks in relief Wednesday in the Rays' 10-9 loss to the Rangers. He was not involved in the decision.

Beeks was the first reliever to enter the contest behind opener Andrew Kittredge, but Austin Pruitt (3.1 scoreless innings) effectively functioned as the Rays' primary pitcher. Pruitt likely would have been first in line after Kittredge had the latter not failed to retire any of the three hitters he faced, prompting manager Kevin Cash to turn to Beeks as a de facto second opener. Beeks didn't fare much better than Kittredge and looks unlikely to recapture a meaningful role as a primary pitcher or traditional reliever anytime soon. The recent returns of Tyler Glasnow from the injured list and Brendan McKay from Triple-A Durham have lessened the Rays' need to rely on Beeks.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Notches sixth victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks (6-3) earned the win Saturday against the Indians after allowing four hits over three scoreless innings. He struck out one and walked none.

Beeks worked as the primary pitcher Saturday but had to enter with a runner on first base during the second inning, and he ended up with his shortest outing since June 21 despite not giving up a run. The 26-year-old has a 4.41 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 82:37 K:BB through 98 innings and should next pitch during the four-game set against the Blue Jays next weekend.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Slotting in as primary pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks will serve as the bulk reliever Saturday against the Indians, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beeks will follow Diego Castillo, who's set to toss the first inning or so as the team's opener. Beeks owns a 4.55 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with an 81:37 K:BB over 95 innings this year for Tampa Bay.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Gets knocked around in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks surrendered seven runs on 11 hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings Sunday against the Orioles. He didn't factor into the decision.

Beeks entered in the third inning of this one, and he'd give up three runs in the third, followed by two in the fourth, one in the fifth and one in the seventh on the way to an 8-3 loss. The 26-year-old southpaw hasn't found much success of late, yielding 16 runs (14 earned) over his last three appearances (15 innings).

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Following opener Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks will work behind an opener Sunday against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beeks will follow opener Diego Castillo in the series finale and will attempt to break a string of two straight losses. Beeks has worked as a primary pitcher for most of the season and has a 4.10 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 75:35 K:BB over 90 innings.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Takes loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks (5-3) allowed four runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out four across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Mariners.

Beeks entered the game in the second inning and turned in three scoreless innings to begin his night. However, things took a turn for the worse when an error allowed the leadoff runner in the fifth frame to reach base, and Beeks went on to allow two hits, a walk and a wild pitch to account for his two unearned runs. One inning later, he surrendered a two-run homer to Tom Murphy, the deciding hit of the contest. Beeks has faltered since the All-Star break, as his ERA has ballooned from 2.79 to 4.10 in seven appearances. He'll look to get back on track in his next appearance, likely to come Sunday at Baltimore.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Working behind opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks will serve as the Rays' bulk reliever behind opener Diego Castillo in Tuesday's game against the Mariners, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beeks has worked behind an opener in most of his outings this season, but with injuries hitting the rotation hard in recent weeks, the Rays deployed the southpaw in a traditional starting role in his last two turns. That decision didn't pay off, as Beeks logged only 8.2 innings between the two starts while surrendering seven runs on 14 hits and four walks. Entering the game behind Castillo should prove more beneficial for Beeks, who should have the luxury of avoiding the top of the batting order once he's summoned from the bullpen. Over 22 appearances out of the bullpen this season, Beeks has posted a 2.97 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 72.2 frames.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Handed second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks (5-2) took the loss Wednesday at San Diego after surrendering five runs on eight hits over five innings. He had six strikeouts and two walks.

Beeks gave up only two extra-base hits Wednesday, but he allowed baserunners in bunches and was ultimately unable to keep the Friars off the board for most of the outing. The outing was the first of at least five innings since May 1 for the 26-year-old, which can be partly explained by his frequent role as the primary pitcher behind an opener. Beeks has a 4.02 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 71:32 K:BB over 85 innings this season and lines up to face the Mariners on Tuesday.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Working as traditional starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays will deploy Beeks in a traditional starting role in Wednesday's game against the Padres, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Though he's typically entered contests behind an opening pitcher throughout the season, Beeks was used as a normal starter in his most recent outing Aug. 9 in Seattle. He performed acceptably while limiting the opposition to two runs (one earned) over 3.2 innings, so Beeks will be given another chance to work right at the beginning of the game. Since Beeks has cleared the 90-pitch mark just once this season, expect him to have a fairly short leash Wednesday if he ends up running into trouble.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: No-decision as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks tossed 3.2 innings Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out four. He did not factor into the decision in a 5-3 win over the Mariners.

Beeks started for only the second time this season, but he wasn't able to complete four innings in the appearance. He allowed RBI singles to Domingo Santana in the third inning and Ryan Court in the fourth. The 26-year-old has a 3.71 ERA and a 65:30 K:BB in 80 innings across 24 games this season. Beeks owns a 5-1 record and is next expected to pitch in an interleague matchup versus the Padres on Wednesday.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Labors through four frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks surrendered four runs (three earned) on five hits and one walk over four innings in Saturday's win over the Marlins. He had two strikeouts and did not factor in the decision.

Beeks also hit three batters, including a bases-loaded HBP during the second inning to give Miami an early lead. The 26-year-old clearly struggled with his command Saturday, delivering only 35 of his 59 pitches for strikes. Beeks has a 3.77 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 61:28 K:BB over 76.1 innings and lines up to pitch at Seattle next weekend.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Set to pitch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks is scheduled to work as the primary pitcher Saturday versus the Marlins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beeks' previous start came last Saturday against the Blue Jays when he allowed one run across four innings. The 26-year-old will follow opener Diego Castillo and has a 3.61 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 59:27 K:BB over 72.1 innings.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Pitches well over four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks allowed one run on four hits and two walks over four innings during Saturday's 10-9 loss to the Blue Jays. He struck out one and did not factor in the decision.

Beeks kept the Blue Jays scoreless through his first two innings as bulk reliever, but he was nicked for a single run in the sixth on a Brandon Drury RBI single. He bounced back to deliver a scoreless seventh inning before being removed after 73 pitches. The 26-year-old has a 3.61 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 59:27 K:BB over 72.1innings this season and lines up to pitch Thursday in Boston.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Slated for bulk work Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks will be the primary pitcher behind opener Andrew Kittredge against the Blue Jays on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beeks will work in his customary long-relief role, one he's found success in on multiple occasions this season. However, the left-hander will be trying to put his worst outing of 2019 behind him when he takes the hill Saturday, as he surrendered eight earned runs on seven hits and two walks across 3.2 innings against the Red Sox last Monday.

Rays' Jalen Beeks: Could return to larger role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beeks is a candidate to log starts during the absence of Blake Snell (elbow), Juan Toribio of reports.

Beeks has scuffled on occasion, such as in his outing last Monday when he allowed eight earned runs on seven hits to the Red Sox. However, the southpaw has acquitted himself well overall this season, posting a 5-1 record, 3.69 ERA, two holds and one save. The 26-year-old has only logged one official start this season, but he has plenty of multi-inning stints on his ledger from his work as a primary/bulk reliever.
