Player Profile: Tim Beckham

I have one card of Tim Beckham, from 2014 Donruss.

Playing career: Shortstop Tim Beckham was the Rays’ first-round pick in 2008, and slowly made his way through their system. He briefly made the major leagues in 2013, but missed 2014 due to injury.

Where he is now: Played in 82 games for the big club in 2015, hitting .222 with 9 HR and 37 RBI.

My memories: I remember him and Gordon Beckham coming up around the same time and both being somewhat high-profile busts.

Google Autocomplete results: He is tenth when you type Tim B, behind Tim Benz, a sports radio host in Pittsburgh. There do not appear to be any other prominent Tim Beckhams.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Chris Begg.

  1. He's gotten a lot better lately. His final 2015 stats look bad - but I like to think this kid has a future.
