by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Rays shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) and Steven Souza (wrist) were held out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Mariners. It was the second straight day both players were sidelined.

Souza said his wrist is feeling better. He said some mild pain, but there is no swelling. He is hoping to avoid the disabled list.

Cabrera said he is available to pinch-hit and is hoping to be back in the lineup Friday.

Cash added Rene Rivera and Tim Beckham will fill in at first base as needed.

Forsythe started at first base Monday against the Mariners and hit his fifth home run of the season. He has a .323/.379/.527/.906 slash line in his last 25 games.

Rays recall Enny Romero after demoting Tim Beckham to Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Following Friday's game against the A's, the Rays optioned infielder Tim Beckham to Triple-A Durham and recalled pitcher Enny Romero to take his roster spot. The Rays needed another bullpen arm after using all seven of their relievers the last two games, per MLB.com.

Beckham homered and tripled in Friday's win against the A's, but he was one of four middle infielders on the roster after Nick Franklin came off the disabled list Sunday. Beckham, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2008 MLB draft, hit .224 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 33 games.

The lefty Romero went 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA in three starts for Durham prior to his promotion. He dealt with a back injury late in spring training, which delayed his start to the season.

Rays' Tim Beckham drives in winning run Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Rays infielder Tim Beckham continues to show his potential in the big leagues. Beckham ripped a two-run double in the eighth inning off Miguel Castro to break a 2-2 tie. 

"I was just hoping I had a chance to get another at-bat, man," Beckham said to MLB.com. "I struck out twice tonight looking. I wasn't too happy about that. That's not what I like to do. Nobody likes to do it. But I definitely don't like to strike out looking. Just wanted to get another AB, and another opportunity to hit the ball hard. Hopefully some runners on base and get some RBIs."

Beckham was given the green light to swing on a 3-0 count and delivered.

"I didn't get it clean off the barrel, but I put a good swing on it," Beckham said. "He was throwing the ball pretty hard. Thought I had enough to get it out of here."

Beckham is hitting .275 with five RBI in 40 at-bats this season.


Tim Beckham replaces David DeJesus at Rays DH


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rays infielder Tim Beckham proving he belongs


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Rays infielder Tim Beckham has hit well since entering the starting lineup in the opening week of the season. Beckham is hitting .267 with two home runs and six RBI in 30 at-bats. 

"What I've seen the past two weeks is a player who is hungry, a player who understands the opportunity in front of him," Rays president of baseball operations Matt Silverman said. "I've seen a guy whose confidence is increasing every game. He's had some success, and I think that is making him a more confident and productive player."

Beckham got his chance when Nick Franklin strained an oblique muscle late in spring training. But he may be headed back to Triple-A once Franklin is healthy enough to return.

"I'm not looking at how Franklin is doing, and I'm not worrying about what the front office is thinking," Beckham said. "As a player, I can only control what's in front of me. I'm trying to maximize my performance every day, and adding pressure by worrying about what other people are doing is not going to help me."

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier will bat leadoff in Friday's game against the Yankees, according to the Tampa Bay Tribune

Kiermaier hit eighth in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays. Kiermaier, a left-handed hitter, has gotten off to a hot start against right-handed pitchers, batting .364 against them thus far. The Yankees are starting righty Adam Warren on the mound. 

Evan Longoria, who was hit by a pitch in the left hip Thursday night, will be Tampa Bay's DH Friday with Logan Forsythe moving to third. That puts Tim Beckham in the lineup in the eight hole as he'll start at second base. 

Catcher Bobby Wilson is making his third start of the season and will bat ninth.

Rays manager Kevin Cash getting closer to naming starting shortstop

"[The candidates are] still kind of bouncing back and forth," Cash said. "But we want the guy who is going to make the routine play. And not to say that anybody's not doing that, [it] seems like they're all doing that. Cabby just has the experience factor with making that play."

Cash said a decision on who will be the starting shortstop could be made next week.


Healthy Tim Beckham to compete for middle-infield spot


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Rays infielder Tim Beckham is in the mix to claim a middle-infield spot this spring after missing most of the 2014 season while rehabbing from knee surgery, MLB.com reports.

Beckham, selected first overall in the 2008 draft, tore his right ACL and underwent sugery on Dec. 17, 2013. He was able to make it back late last season and contribute to a playoff push by Triple-A Durham, hitting .258/.281/.290 in 62 at-bats.

"Coming back and playing last year, playing that month and a half, producing and helping the team out a lot," Beckham said. "And we went pretty far in the playoffs. So that brought a lot of confidence back my way. Just sliding, jumping, those are big hurdles. Just doing stuff you don't do every day off the baseball field. I wouldn't be sliding if I wasn't in a game. So that month and a half was big for me."

Beckham also said the past "not anything I think about," adding, "That's not anything I want to think about right now. I'm here, I'm healthy, and I'll take it one day at a time. Just to be able to be out there with the guys, laughing and taking ground balls, swinging, that's what the game's about, having fun. That's what we started out doing as kids. This is the game we love."

Prior to his ACL injury, Beckham hit .276/.342/.387 with four home runs, 51 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 460 at-bats with Durham in 2013. If he makes the team this spring, the infielder could see time at second base and shortstop.
