2019 Fantasy Outlook
After being traded to Tampa Bay, Beeks made 12 relief appearances for his new team, working an average of 3.7 innings per appearance and never going fewer than two. His overall line wasn't pretty, but he was decent over the final two months of the season, posting a 3.07 ERA over 41 innings. That could theoretically be enough to move him into a starting role this season, though some regression is likely in order as he posted a .241 BABIP and an 83.7% left-on-base rate over that stretch. Even if his ERA holds, he may not see a role change, as his apparent comfort in the unconventional "bulk-inning" job could lead the Rays to keep him there. That's not altogether a bad thing for fantasy purposes, as it gives the lefty the chance to earn wins and protects his ratios by letting him avoid the three-times-through-the-order penalty.

Knocked around in win
PTampa Bay Rays
March 16, 2019
Beeks allowed two earned runs on four hits over 1.2 innings in a split-squad win over the Tigers on Friday. He struck out two and now sports an 8.31 ERA across 8.2 spring innings over six spring appearances.
ANALYSIS
Other concerning metrics in Beeks' spring resume include a .385 BAA and 2.08 WHIP, as well as four home runs allowed. The 25-year-old southpaw is battling for a "bulk" reliever role on the Rays' staff this season alongside the likes of Ryan Yarbrough and Yonny Chirinos, and although Friday's final line was far from pretty, he still earned praise from manager Kevin Cash for a 12-pitch showdown against Dustin Peterson, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. "That long at-bat, I don't know if he's capable of doing that last year," Cash said. "He just kept throwing strike after strike. Really encouraged."

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Beeks had a strong showing in the upper minors in 2017, leaving himself on the cusp of Boston's big-league roster. In 145 innings split between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket, the 24-year-old lefty recorded a 3.29 ERA. He's probably a fourth starter at best, as his numbers were more good than great in 17 starts at Triple-A: a roughly average groundball rate (44.6 percent) and walk rate (8.2 percent) with an above-average strikeout rate (24.1 percent). It's a skill set that could play in either the rotation or the bullpen, and Beeks has routes to both. He isn't in consideration for Boston's fifth starter job this spring, but the depth chart in front of him contains a number of injury-prone pitchers (David Price, Drew Pomeranz and Eduardo Rodriguez) and no top prospects, so there's a decent chance he's called upon at some point this summer. The team also lacks a quality left-handed reliever, so Beeks could be pressed into service there as well. It's not a particularly enticing package, but it's at least enough to keep Beeks on watch lists for owners in deeper leagues.
