More cuts: Beckham, Chirinos, Lee
The Rays continued thinning out their spring roster, optioning INF Tim Beckham, C Robinson Chirinos and INF Hak-Ju Lee to Triple-A Durham.
Beckham and Lee are the team's top two middle infield prospects. Lee is likely to play primarily at shortstop at Durham, Beckham at second, with some time at short. It's also possible he could eventually be moved to the outfield.
Chirinos, who missed all of last season after sustaining a spring concussion, will get to play somewhat regularly for the Bulls.
The moves leave the Rays spring roster at 45.
