Gordon Beckham 2B CWS 4 Days
Gordon Beckham went 1-for-4 with a single and two strikeouts Friday in his first start of the season out of the leadoff spot.
Beckham is now hitting .305 (11-for-36) with two doubles, one RBI and five runs scored in 10 games since coming off the disabled list. We don't expect the batting average to last, but he should do enough in counting stats to be a decent middle infielder option in deeper mixed leagues. Look for him to slide back down near the bottom of the order when Alejandro De Aza (illness) is ready to return to action.

Gordon Beckham isn't playing Friday with Triple-A Charlotte due to soreness in his surgically-repaired left hand.
Beckham had surgery in mid-April to remove the hamate bone from his hand, so the White Sox don't want to take any chances. It isn't a major setback, but the White Sox could also have him sit out Saturday just to be on the safe side.

Gordon Beckham (hand) started at shortstop Monday in his third rehab game with Triple-A Charlotte.
Beckham played shortstop in college and as a prospect, but he has never done so in the majors. Of course, Alexei Ramirez is in the second year of a four-year, $32.5 million contract, so there would have to be an injury or a trade for him to get a look there with the big club. Still, it's an interesting development. Beckham is hitting .462 (6-for-13) with one double and two RBI over three rehab games and should be activated this weekend.
