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."


Rays' Kiermaier to lead off; Beckham, Wilson in lineup


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' Tim Beckham hits pinch-hit home run


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Rays infielder Tim Beckham hit a two-run home run in the top of the sixth inning of Thursday night's 4-2 win over the Blue Jays. 

Beckham didn't start and entered the game pinch hitting for Allan Dykstra. His homer came on a 0-2 pitch that he hit over the left field wall. The homer also scored Evan Longoria. This was Beckham's second homer of the season. 

Beckham finished the game 1 for 2. He now has a slash line of .304/.320/.652 this season. 


Rays' Brandon Guyer leading off in all-righty lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Rays left fielder Brandon Guyer is leading off Tuesday as the team uses an all-rightly lineup against the Blue Jays and left-handed starter Daniel Norris.

The Rays actually have eight righties and one switch hitter in the lineup, loading up against the rookie southpaw. Guyer is just 2 for 11 this season but hit .297/.366/.396 in 111 at-bats against lefties in 2014.

In addition to Guyer, the Rays have Logan Forsythe at second base, Rene Rivera at first base, Tim Beckham at shortstop and Bobby Wilson at catcher in the final four spots of the lineup.

The Rays are underdogs (+135) against the Blue Jays Tuesday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Rays second baseman Tim Beckham went 2 for 2 with a solo home run in Tampa Bay's 2-0 win over the Marlins Saturday.

Beckham came on as a pinch hitter in seventh for Allan Dykstra and 10-pitch at-bat before taking pitcher Mike Dunn to deep left center for the home run. He is the first Ray in history to hit his first career home run as a pinch hitter.

"I was happy to get one on the barrel," Beckham said to MLB.com. "The first one I've hit hard this season, and it felt good. I saw a lot of pitches, and he left me one up I could drive, and I had good results."

He also added a single and a stolen base to his totals.

Beckham beat out Jake Elmore for a spot on the team's bench as a sixth infielder. He hit .245 with two doubles, one triple and three RBI over 53 at-bats this spring. Wilson beat out Curt Casali for the job. He hit .120 with three hits and five strikeouts this spring.

Beckham, Elmore, Casilla vying for backup infielder role with Rays


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tim Beckham, Jake Elmore and Alexi Casilla are vying for a spot on the team's bench as a sixth infielder, per The Tampa Tribune.

Rays' Cash tabs Asdrubal Cabrera as starting shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash made it official Monday, naming Asdrubal Cabrera the team's starting shortstop. He beat out Nick Franklin and Tim Beckham, who were also competing for the starting job this spring.

"I don't think you're going to find a more sure-handed shortstop than Cabby," Cash said.

Cabrera is a two-time All-Star while playing at shortstop. He has spent most of his MLB career at shortstop (731 games). Although, the Rays were considering using him at both shortstop and second base this season before Cash made his announcement Monday.


Rays manager Kevin Cash getting closer to naming starting shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash doesn't appear ready to name a starting shortstop, as he said Tuesday he likes "all the guys we have" competing for the job. However, it appears Asdrubal Cabrera and Nick Franklin are the favorites over Tim Beckham, per MLB.com.

"[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.
