Tim Beckham (2B/SS/3B, BAL) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 13% of Leagues

ANALYSIS: Baltimore Orioles infielder Tim Beckham started off the season very slow with a .206 batting average in the first half with two HR and 13 RBI. In only 89 plate appearances of the second half, Beckham already has five homers, 15 RBI, and a .303 average. It should be noted that Beckham does not hit the ball with authority, as his hard-hit rate is only 31%. He needs to improve that similar to the rate of 2017 (39%).

Beckham does continue to make improvements with his plate discipline though. He has reduced his swinging strikes to 13% and increased his contact rate to 73%. By no means will Beckham be confused with a top-100 player, but he is making minor adjustments and is currently hot at the plate. In the last 14 days, he has three homers, seven RBI, and a .319 batting average. He is not a bad play in deep leagues. Of course, the schedule is not as favorable as most this week. He faces off against the Mets at home and then a series in Cleveland. Keep in mind the Orioles only have five games on the schedule this week; they face three solid pitchers in Trevor BauerCarlos Carrasco, and Zack Wheeler.
