Rays opener Jalen Beeks was responsible for two scoreless innings during Monday's outing against the Yankees. He finished the day with three hits, zero walks, two strikeouts, and the no-decision before turning the pitching duties over to Ryan Yarbrough. Tampa Bay ultimately defeated New York by a score of 4-0.
Beeks owns a 2.25 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and .226 OBA along with 10.69 K/9 and 3.38 BB/9 through 30 games (48 innings) this season. He has looked slightly better as a reliever than an opener, but there's no doubt that he can continue to post solid numbers in both roles going forward.
