Birthdate: 1/27/1990 (27 y, 1 m, 23 d)     Bats/Throws: R/R     Height/Weight: 6-0/190     Position: 2B/SS
Drafted: 2008 June Amateur Draft - Round: 1, Pick: 1, Overall: 1, Team: Tampa Bay Rays

RotoWire News: Beckham is a candidate to be part of a leadoff platoon this coming season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "We're trying to narrow (it down),'' manager Kevin Cash said. "I don't think we have, as it stands right now, a defined leadoff guy. We're trying a couple different options. ... We're still trying to work through do we have a guy versus left and a guy versus right." (3/17/2017)

Profile: We all know who Beckham should have been by now, so it's silly to continue to play the what-if game any longer. These days it's about waiting to see how much of his potential he will ever reach. The frustrating part with that process is Beckham was showing signs of fulfilling that potential by putting up a park-adjusted offense that was 41% better than the league's in the second half of the season as the club utilized him in ways to set him up for success. Even as he took one step forward, he took several steps back with lackadaisical baserunning during a late August road trip that led to a demotion back to Triple-A, where he would remain, as the team declined to bring him up even after rosters expanded in September. A less talented player would have likely already received his walking papers, but Tampa Bay has not yet been willing to give up on waiting to see Beckham fulfill his potential. (Jason Collette)

The Quick Opinion: Beckham has the athleticism and skills to serve as a key backup on the 2017 roster, but potential has never been his problem. He is out of options, so he must shape up or he will be shipped out.
