The Tampa Bay Rays reinstated left-hander Jalen Beeks from the 15-day injured list Saturday, per the Rays Radio Network.

Beeks, 29, went on the shelf just before the All-Star break due to tightness in his lower right leg.

He is 1-1 with a 2.48 ERA in five starts this season for Tampa Bay. He has 49 strikeouts and 14 walks in 40 innings.

Beeks owns a 13-6 career record with a 4.16 ERA and three saves in 83 games (nine starts) with the Boston Red Sox (2018) and Rays.

Tampa Bay optioned right-hander Luke Bard to Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move. Bard, 31, is 1-1 with a 1.93 ERA in eight relief appearances for the Rays in 2022.
