|White Sox not ready to switch Gordon Beckham's position|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/21/13) White Sox manager Robin Ventura told Comcast SportsNet Chicago that Gordon Beckham will not be switching from second base to shortstop, despite playing shortstop during Monday's rehab game.
Ventura worked out Beckham at shortstop during spring break but never used him in a game. Ventura wants to see if he is capable of handling a limited role at shortstop on days when Alexei Ramirez is not in the lineup.
"When everybody starts getting healthy you can only fit so many people in certain spots," Ventura said. "Alexei is the shortstop. But in case you need somebody there, is (Beckham) able to do that? That's more of a reason to have him do it. I want him to play second base here. But for one game, or if something happens before you could get somebody up here, would he be able to do it? … You start to find out if he's comfortable."
Beckham, who played shortstop in college, has gone 6 for 13 with two RBI in three rehab games and could be back with the White Sox at the end of the week.

(5/21/13) White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham played shortstop during Monday's rehab game.
Beckham played shortstop in college, but has been used as a second baseman during his major-league career. The team has Alexei Ramirez at short, so there's no immediate need for Beckham to play the position. The White Sox are currently three games under .500, and could be looking to see whether Beckham can handle the position for trade purposes. Beckham is hitting .316/.333/.316 in 19 at-bats.
|Gordon Beckham shooting for weekend return|

(5/21/13) White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham started at shortstop for Triple-A Charlotte Monday during his rehab assignment, MLB.com reports.
He's had five hits over starts at DH and at second base.
Manager Robin Ventura mentioned that Beckham could rejoin the team this weekend.
"Sometime by the end of the week you would think, but again, you never know how that hand is going to react," Ventura said of Beckham and his recovery from a fractured left hamate bone. "It's probably been sore because this is the first time he's been hitting on a daily basis. You would hope so, but nothing's guaranteed."

(5/18/13) White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham opened his rehab assignment as Triple-A Charlotte's designated hitter Saturday, going 2 for 4 with a walk and scoring three runs.
On the disabled list with a wrist injury, Beckham is expected to return to the White Sox for next weekend's series against the Marlins.

(5/17/13) White Sox infielder Gordon Beckham is expected to return to the club in time for next weekend's series against Miami, the Chicago Sun-Times announced.
Will Beckham play, though? The 2008 first round pick has just a .239/.303/.361 (78 OPS+) line since 2010. Meanwhile, Conor Gillaspie (.294/.360/.451, 115 OPS+) is looking like a rookie of the year candidate. Perhaps Jeff Keppinger (.188/.191/.210, 7 OPS+) heads to the bench for Beckham, but there is competition now. Beckham will have to hit to guarantee playing time -- a new situation for him, given how the White Sox have lacked infield depth for most of his career.
|Gordon Beckham briefly came alive in 2012 and reminded everyone why he was such a highly touted prospect. And then he came crashing back to earth with no regard for his new owners, eventually pulling himself back up to finish the season on somewhat of a high note. It all added up to a .234 batting average with a career-high 16 home runs. But owners who play the waiver wire may remember him more fondly, as they picked him up in droves in May and June, as his average climbed into the .240s thanks to a .276 average in June -- getting the best of him. Then they dropped him at the first signs of the Beckham of old showing his ugly head, avoiding the bulk of his .188 average in July (and getting out before the .235 average in August). Over the past two seasons, Beckham had a .232 average and 26 total home runs in 1,024 at-bats. Though he's shown signs of legitimacy, Beckham's been unable to sustain it and, therefore, has little value outside of AL-only leagues. (Updated 12/4/12)|
