Rays | Tim Beckham makes most of switch

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 23:59:44 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Tim Beckham was pressed into duty at first base Thursday, July 21, and he responded with a home run in a 7-3 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: With Logan Morrison (forearm) sidelined and Steve Pearce due for a night off, the team had to do something. It did. Beckham has a .223 average but also has a .438 slugging percentage. He may not be quite ready for daily play, but his fantasy value could see a climb due to an extra position being added to his versatility.

Rays | Steve Pearce sitting out vs. A's

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 15:34:21 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Steve Pearce is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. SS Tim Beckham is starting at first base and is batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce just came off the DL Tuesday, so the Rays are likely easing him back in. With a .322/.393/.552 slash line, 10 homers and 29 RBI, he plays in most deep mixed and AL leagues as long as he's playing regularly. Beckham had five hits last night to continue his hot July (.462), but he has just three homers and 10 RBI on the year and remains a desperation flier in DFS.

Rays | Tim Beckham has five-hit game

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:00:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Tim Beckham went 5-for-5 with a double, run scored and two RBIs Wednesday, July 20, against the Colorado Rockies. Despite the career-high five-hit game Beckham is still hitting just .213.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham can be mostly ignored outside of deeper AL-only fantasy leagues despite the big stat line.

Rays | Brad Miller, Kevin Kiermaier sitting

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:19:34 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller and OF Kevin Kiermaier are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Wednesday, July 20. SS Tim Beckham is starting at shortstop and is hitting seventh, while OF Brandon Guyer is in center field and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: It's a normal day of rest for Miller and Kiermaier against a lefty, and the Rays are losing the DH again today in an NL park. Beckham isn't really worth your time in DFS despite hitting at Coors Field. He's batting .175 with three homers and eight RBI. Guyer certainly has some sleeper appeal hitting second, but keep in mind he's hit just .132 (5-for-38) with no homers, RBI or steals in July.

Rays | Kevin Kiermaier in two-hole

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:53:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier is starting in center field and hitting second against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson Monday, July 18, with SS Brad Miller out against the left-hander. SS Tim Beckham draws in at the 6 and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Kiermaier is batting just .221 on the season and is hitless in eight at-bats since coming off the DL to begin the second half. He lacks power but can contribute nicely in runs and stolen bases (six this year), so he deserves to be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues. It might not be a bad idea to keep him reserved until he proves he's fully healthy, though. Beckham is purely a desperation pick in DFS Monday night.

Rays | Two Rays park it on the bench

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 06:36:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson (thumb) and 1B Logan Morrison are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 29, with OF Desmond Jennings moving up to hit cleanup and 2B Tim Beckham hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is hitting .261 this month, which is a step above his .202 average for the season. However, he's facing David Price today. He has upside at cleanup, but it's a risk. Beckham isn't worth consideration.

Rays | Brad Miller on the bench

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 12:47:25 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Monday, June 27. SS Tim Beckham will start at shortstop and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham has only two hits in his last seven games and has not recorded an RBI in the last 10 games. Owners in all fantasy leagues should be able to find other options to use in their lineups.

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:11:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Tyler Wilson Sunday, June 26. INF Tim Beckham is playing the hot corner and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham is batting just .190 with three home runs and seven RBI over 84 at-bats and is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon.
