Acquiring something decent for Beckham needs to go down first, IMO as his value continues to go down and his salary is starting to creep up.
As for a respectable 2B, Jeff Keppinger is a FA, and he made $1.5M last year and $2.3M two years ago, hitting .325/.367/.439 last year for the Rays, though he's considered an average to below average fielder.
Morel shouldn't be an option at 3B until we know his back is relatively healthy.
I also think Floyd may be moved for either a catcher or 3B + prospects.
Guess we have to wait on Youk's decision first...
