Tampa Bay Rays
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. Read Past Outlooks

Working as primary pitcher Tuesday
PTampa Bay Rays
September 4, 2018
Beeks is slated to work as the Rays' primary pitcher in Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
ANALYSIS
For the second straight day, the Rays will turn to Ryne Stanek as their opening pitcher, but he'll likely be limited to around one inning before turning things over to Beeks. The left-handed rookie endured a bumpy debut with the Rays on July 28, but since then, he has performed exceptionally in the unconventional bullpen role. Beeks has covered at least three innings in each of his last six outings, posting a 2.63 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over that span.
