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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Beeks is a candidate to log starts during the absence of Blake Snell (elbow), Juan Toribio of MLB.com 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.
Beeks (5-1) took the loss Monday, surrendering eight runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 3.2 innings while striking out two as the Rays fell 9-4 to the Red Sox.
All three homers came in a disastrous seven-run third inning, and Beeks saw his winning streak snapped at 10 as he took his first loss since last June. The lefty now carries a 3.69 ERA and 58:25 K:BB through 68.1 innings, with his next outing likely to come next weekend in Toronto.
Beeks will start Monday against the Red Sox, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Beeks typically follows an opener, but the way Tolentino phrased this tweet suggests that we could see Beeks work as a traditional starter against his former team. It would be preferable in most formats to have Beeks work after an opener, because he rarely logs five innings, so he is unlikely to get a win when working as a traditional starter. He will likely pitch as a starter or primary pitcher next weekend in Toronto as well, so it could be viewed as a two-start week.
Beeks isn't expected to start any of the Rays' three games over the weekend against the White Sox, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Beeks returned from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday and filled his usual role as a bulk reliever in an 8-3 loss, limiting the Yankees to one run on two hits and a walk over 3.1 innings while striking out five. Though Beeks likely would have been available to pitch again as soon as Saturday, the Rays are instead expected to recall Brendan McKay from Triple-A Durham and have him, Ryan Yarbrough and Blake Snell all make starts this weekend. Beeks could resurface as a bulk reliever Monday, when Tampa Bay begins a three-game home set with Boston.
Beeks allowed one run on two hits and one walk over 3.1 innings during Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Yankees. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.
Beeks kept the Yankees scoreless through his first three innings as the bulk reliever, but he was pulled during the sixth after allowing a solo homer and a single with one out. The 26-year-old has a 2.78 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 56:23 K:BB over 64.2 innings this season and lines up to pitch Sunday versus the White Sox, likely behind an opener.
Beeks is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Durham to serve as the bulk reliever Tuesday against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Beeks was sent down to Triple-A at the end of June, but he'll return to the big leagues in time for the second game of Tampa Bay's series in the Bronx. He's posted a 2.79 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 51 punchouts over 61.1 innings this season.
Beeks was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Beeks delivered 3.1 scoreless frames as the bulk reliever Thursday but will head to Triple-A with the Rays adding Jose Alvarado (personal) and Casey Sadler to the major-league roster. Beeks has a 2.79 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 51:22 K:BB this season and figures to rejoin the Rays before too long.
Beeks worked as a bulk reliever behind opener Ryne Stanek in Thursday's extra-innings win over the Twins and fired 3.1 scoreless innings during which he allowed two hits and three walks while also recording a strikeout. He did not factor into the decision.
Beeks threw 48 pitches and, except for some control issues, he was largely effective. The young southpaw's scoreless effort was particularly welcome after he'd allowed two earned runs apiece over his previous pair of outings. Beeks has been a valuable long reliever for manager Kevin Cash this season despite the occasional stumble, as evidenced by his 5-0 record and 2.79 ERA across 61.1 innings.
Beeks is expected to serve as the Rays' bulk reliever for Thursday's game against the Twins.
Beyond naming Ryne Stanek as their opening pitcher, the Rays haven't formally outlined their plans for the series finale. Since Beeks will be available on five days' rest, he'll presumably work longer than any of the team's other bullpen options. The Rays have been more judicious with their usage of the lefty in his last two turns, as Beeks has been limited to three and two frames, respectively.
Beeks struck out one and allowed two runs off three hits and no walks in two innings against the A's on Friday.
The southpaw struggled as the primary pitcher in his second straight appearance, this time giving up a solo home run in both of his two innings. After allowing four runs in five innings over his last two appearances, Beeks' ERA has risen to 2.95 but he still boasts a respectable 50:19 K:BB in 58 innings this season. Jose De Leon (elbow), Tyler Glasnow (forearm) and Anthony Banda (elbow) remain on the 60-day injured list, but they are all progressing in their rehab processes. Beeks could be relegated to the bullpen when they are ready to return.
Beeks yielded two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over three innings Sunday against the Angels.
Beeks came on with one out in the second inning, but he wasn't sharp in the series finale. He surrendered a run in the third inning on a sacrifice fly and gave up another in the fifth on an infield single. Despite a shaky outing, the 25-year-old southpaw owns a 2.73 ERA with 49 punchouts over 56 innings this season.
