Tim Beckham has chance to make major league debut

The Tampa Tribune reports the Rays are expected to call up Tim Beckham from Triple-A Durham, possibly as soon as Monday. The shortstop was the first overall pick in the 2008 MLB Amateur draft but has yet to play in the majors.

Beckham will probably be used as a pinch runner and to provide bench depth. He hit .276 with 17 stolen bases in 122 games at Durham.
