Beckham is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Beckham had started the previous three games, but his opportunities in the middle infield could dwindle with J.P. Crawford (ankle) and Dee Gordon (wrist) recently returning from the injured list. Crawford and Gordon are expected to serve as the primary options at shortstop and second base, respectively, pushing Beckham and Dylan Moore back into utility roles in the process. Beckham could still have a path to at-bats at designated hitter after the Mariners traded Edwin Encarnacion to the Yankees on Saturday.
Beckham is not in the lineup Thursday against the Astros, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Beckham will sit for a second straight day and the third time in four games as Dylan Moore picks up another start at shortstop in his stead. His only start during that stretch came against left-hander Wade Miley, suggesting the 29-year-old could be settling into the smaller side of a platoon with Moore while J.P. Crawford (ankle) remains on the shelf.
Beckham is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Beckham is hitting just .125 over his last 10 appearances, so he'll give way to Dylan Moore at shortstop for the second time in three games.
Beckham is not in the lineup Monday against the Astros, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Beckham will head to the bench after starting the past five games, going 2-for-18 (.111) with a pair of homers and six RBI during those contests. Dylan Moore is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth in this one.
Beckham went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in a loss to the Angels on Thursday.
Beckham produced all three of Seattle's runs in the game, belting a two-run shot to center in the fifth inning and driving in another run with an RBI groundout in the seventh. The home run was the second for Beckham in as many games and his 11th of the season. He has started only 11 of the Mariners' last 21 games but appears to be in line for increased playing time with J.P. Crawford (ankle) out of action for at least the next few weeks.
