Beckham day to day with tight left hamstring

ST. PETERSBURG -- Tim Beckham had to leave Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Red Sox with a tight left hamstring and is considered day to day.

Beckham started at shortstop in place of Matt Duffy, who had a day off. After playing the field in the seventh, Beckham did not return to play the eighth.

Richie Shaffer came off the bench to play first base and bat fifth and Brad Miller shifted from first to shortstop for the final two innings.
