Rays purchased the contract of SS Tim Beckham from Triple-A Durham.
The 2008 No. 1 overall pick, Beckham batted just .256/.325/.361 with six homers and six steals in his first full season at Triple-A in 2012. He'll turn just 23 in January, but he hasn't been a top prospect for a while. That said, it's certainly no surprise Tampa was unwilling to expose him to the Rule 5 Draft.
