White Sox start Gordon Beckham in place of Conor Gillaspie
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie wasn't in the team's starting lineup for Friday's game.
Gillaspie has started six straight games at third. He'll be spelled by Gordon Beckham, who gets his fourth start of the season.
The White Sox are -108 money line favorites over visiting Kansas City.
White Sox's Gordon Beckham playing well in limited time
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) White Sox third baseman Gordon Beckham didn't start Sunday but entered the game in the eighth inning as a defensive replacement and doubled in his only at-bat in his team's 9-1 loss to the Tigers.
Beckham has seen just three starts this season but has played well in limited time, going 5 for 13 with a home run and three RBI. With starting third baseman Conor Gillaspie failing to get things going offensively over the first two weeks, it's possible Beckham could carve out some more playing time if he continues to perform at the plate.
Beckham, Ramirez deliver big hits in White Sox victory
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/12/15) Gordon Beckham and Alexei Ramirez each delivered clutch hits in the eighth inning as the White Sox pulled away from the Twins en route to a 6-2 triumph Sunday.
Ramirez tallied his second hit of the game, a single, to score Avasail Garcia and give the Sox a 4-2 lead, and Beckham, coming on as a pinch-hitter, crushed a two-run homer to left to provide the final margin.
White Sox infielder Gordon Beckham seeing results from swing changes
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) White Sox infielder Gordon Beckham made one slight adjustment to his swing Wednesday, leading to great results. Beckham hit one home run and two doubles in the game and credits the success to his hard work on days off, reports MLB.com.
"I've been working pretty hard, and the other day I started working on something that gave me a little bit better feel," said Beckham. "It clearly worked out."
Beckham went just 1 for 27 to start spring training.
"I didn't feel like it was bad," Beckham said. "I'm putting the ball in play. Before today it wasn't necessarily hard-hit all the time, but I was putting the ball in play and working on some different things -- and not panicking because the results aren't there. That's the name of the game. Maybe in years past I would have done that."
White Sox's Gordon Beckham working at multiple infield positions
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Gordon Beckham's main goal this spring training is to win the White Sox's starting second baseman position.
But for now, the White Sox are planning to use him at multiple positions in the infield during Cactus League play, according to MLB.com. This is somewhat new for Beckham, as he played second base during his first five-plus Major League seasons with the White Sox.
Though Beckham is looking to earn the starting job at second base, he seems to be enjoying playing multiple spots so far.
"I'm actually kind of enjoying running around," Beckham said. "I like popping around the infield. I know the coaches and the people making the decisions know I can play second base and know I can play it well. There has been an emphasis on them just telling me to get some work in other places."
Beckham actually played shortstop in college at the University of Georgia and played that position, as well as third base, after the White Sox traded him to the Angels. He was brought back to Chicago on a one-year deal.
Beckham hit a single-season worse .226 for both the Angels and White Sox a season ago.
|2014 summary: After a typically lackluster first 4 1/2 months, Gordon Beckham suddenly found himself without a regular job, having been shipped to the Angels to play a utility role. As you might expect, his final numbers weren't up to snuff, but he wasn't on pace for anything better prior to the trade. In two years since hitting a career-high 16 home runs, he has hit a combined 14.|
Playing time status: Now a free agent, Beckham has a chance fo find regular at-bats elsewhere, but given his lack of production in a full-time role, he'll likely have to come off the bench again. He's versatile enough to get 250-plus at-bats regardless, but you'd have to play in an especially deep league for those numbers to amount to anything.
2015 outlook: Beckham has shown decent pop at times and has never had a problem making consistent contact, but with a career .245 batting average and .681 OPS, he was just getting in Fantasy owners' way as a starter. In his projected role, he could be something like another Sean Rodriguez, if that's in any way exciting to you.
