Top Jalen Beeks News

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Activated from injured list

    Beeks (lower leg) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday and included on Tampa Bay's roster for the AL Wild Card Series at Cleveland, Steve Carney of StPeteNine.com reports.

    Beeks has been sidelined the past few weeks by tightness in his right lower leg but will rejoin the Rays for the start of the playoffs. The 29-year-old has been a strong option out of the bullpen this year with a 2.80 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 70:22 K:BB across 61 innings.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Hopes to return next week

    Beeks (lower leg) hopes to return from the injured list for next week's series in Boston, per MLB.com.

    Beeks is on the injured list with right lower leg tightness and is eligible to return as early as Oct. 3. He's been throwing during his IL stint and will likely have the chance to make at least one more relief appearance for the Rays before joining the team's bullpen for the postseason.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Lands on injured list

    Beeks was placed on the 15-day injured list with right lower leg tightness Wednesday, retroactive to Sept. 18, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Beeks has performed well recently, striking out four in 3.2 scoreless innings over his last three appearances. However, he's dealing with a lower leg issue that will keep him sidelined until at least the Rays' final series of the regular season. It's not yet clear whether the southpaw will be able to return prior to the end of the regular season, but Dusten Knight was called up to take his place in the bullpen.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Picks up second save

    Beeks struck out one in a perfect 10th inning Wednesday to record his second save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Marlins.

    Pete Fairbanks, Colin Poche and Jason Adam worked the late innings in regulation, so when the Rays took their first lead of the game in the top of the 10th, Beeks got the call to close things out. The southpaw is now the seventh Tampa Bay pitcher this season to record multiple saves, and he's earned his high-leverage opportunities with a 2.65 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 28.1 percent strikeout rate on the year.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Operating as opener

    Beeks will start Monday's contest versus the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Beeks will operate as the opener Monday before Ryan Yarbrough enters the game as the primary pitcher. Beeks has allowed one run over six innings in five appearances since returning from the 15-day injured list July 30.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Tabbed as opener

    Beeks will start Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Steve Carney of MLB.com reports.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Reinstated from injured list

    Beeks (lower leg) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Beeks landed on the injured list just before the All-Star break due to right lower leg tightness, but he'll rejoin the Rays' bullpen following a minimal IL stint. Over four appearances in July, the southpaw has posted a 1.35 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 6.2 innings.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Placed on 15-day IL

    Beeks was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right lower leg tightness.

    Beeks last pitched Thursday, earning his first save of the season, but he appears to have tweaked something in his lower right leg. The move to the IL was retroactive to July 15, making him first eligible to return July 30. Pete Fairbanks (lat) was reinstated from the 60-day IL on Sunday and will replace Beeks on the active roster.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Minimum stay expected

    Beeks (leg) is expected to return from the 15-day injured list when first eligible, Marc Topkins of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Beeks was placed on the injured list Sunday but the stint was retroactive to July 15, putting Beeks in line for a potential return on July 30. He has served primarily as a multi-inning reliever and opener this season for the Rays, maintaining a 2.48 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 49:14 K:BB across 40 frames.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Secures first save

    Beeks earned a save against the Red Sox on Thursday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out one batter over one inning.

    Tampa Bay took its first lead with a five-run seventh inning, and manager Kevin Cash turned to Brooks Raley and Jason Adam -- who have combined for eight saves this season -- to handle the eighth. That gave Beeks the opportunity to nail down his first save of 2022, and he did so successfully despite allowing three baserunners and one run. The bullpen usage Thursday highlights the peril of looking to Rays relievers for saves in fantasy -- eight different pitchers have notched at least one save for the club this season, and none has more than six. It doesn't seem likely that Beeks will be one of the team's most frequent closers despite Thursday's successful save.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Tosses two scoreless frames

    Beeks allowed two hits and a walk over two shutout innings as the opener in Monday's loss to Boston. He struck out two batters.

    After a perfect first inning, Beeks found himself in a two-out, bases-loaded jam in the second. He was able to escape unscathed before turning the ball over to Josh Fleming. The 28-year-old southpaw lowered his ERA to 2.55 with a 43:12 K:BB through 21 appearances. Beeks had given up six runs over his last three outings.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Serving as opener Monday

    Beeks will serve as the opener for Monday's game against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Beeks has served as an opener in three of his last four appearances, and he'll begin the game on the mound during Monday's series opener in Boston. Over his last four outings, he's posted a 7.36 ERA and 1.36 WHIP while striking out nine in 7.1 innings.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Covers two frames as opener

    Beeks didn't factor in the decision after allowing one run on three hits over two innings during Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Brewers. He had four strikeouts and zero walks.

    The 29-year-old delivered a scoreless first inning but returned for a second frame and gave up a run on two hits and a hit-by-pitch. It was Beeks' fourth time working as an opener this season, and he's given up three runs over 7.2 frames in that role. Overall he has a 2.70 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 41:11 K:BB across 33.1 innings.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Gets starting nod Wednesday

    Beeks is scheduled to serve as the Rays' opening pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Beeks is pitching on three days' rest and hasn't tossed more than 2.1 innings or 43 pitches in any of his 19 appearances this season, so he won't be in line for a traditional start. Wednesday had been Jeffrey Springs' day to pitch, so he'll likely be the top candidate to serve as a bulk reliever behind Beeks, if the Rays decide to go that route.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Serving as opener Tuesday

    Beeks will start Tuesday against the Yankees and is expected to serve as an opener in what will likely be a bullpen day for the Rays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Beeks will make his second consecutive start against the Yankees after he tossed two perfect innings while striking out one in a loss to New York last Thursday. Since allowing three runs to the Angels on May 9, the 28-year-old has surrendered just one run over 15.1 innings in his last 10 appearances and he now owns a 1.29 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with 33 punchouts over 28 frames this season. Ralph Garza could be deployed in long relief behind Beeks, though manager Kevin Cash hasn't committed to any of his bullpen arms being used as a bulk reliever.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Two effective innings

    Beeks threw two scoreless innings while striking out one Thursday against the Yankees.

    Beeks started a bullpen game for the Rays and didn't allow a baserunner in his two innings of work. He has been effective in a multi-inning relief role this season, holding opponents scoreless in 15 of his 17 appearances. Overall, Beeks has maintained a 1.29 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and a 33:8 K:BB across 28 frames.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Gets start in bullpen game

    Beeks is listed as the Rays' scheduled starter for Thursday's game against the Yankees and will presumably serve as an opener in a bullpen day for Tampa Bay.

    Beeks will be pitching on three days' rest and hasn't covered more than 2.1 innings in his 16 appearances on the season, so manager Kevin Cash is unlikely to let the southpaw go more than once through the batting order before turning the game over to the bullpen. Ralph Garza looks to be the top candidate to provide length in relief if needed, but the Rays are more likely to get by with multiple arms rather than a true primary pitcher to cover innings once Beeks exits.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Tosses two scoreless innings

    Beeks allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one in two scoreless innings during Friday's loss to the Orioles. He didn't factor into the decision.

    The southpaw served as an opener for the first time this season, but he threw just 19 pitches (13 strikes) before Ryan Yarbrough took over as a long reliever. While Beeks was effective as an opener and now has a 1.53 ERA in 16.2 innings this season, he'll likely move back to the bullpen following Friday's matchup.

  • Rays' Jalen Beeks: Set to work as opener Friday

    Beeks will serve as the Rays' opening pitcher for Friday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Since he hasn't covered more than two innings in any of his nine relief appearances this season and will be taking the mound on three days' rest, Beeks will likely be pulled from the game before the lineup turns over. Ryan Yarbrough is scheduled to enter the game behind Beeks and serve as a bulk reliever, which could put him in better position than normal to factor into the decision.
