|Marcus Semien cracks out four hits, four RBI in win over Texas |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/20/14) White Sox second baseman Marcus Semien came up big at the plate Sunday afternoon, cranking out four hits, including a bases-loaded triple in his team's 16-2 victory over the Rangers.
Semien also singled in the third, eighth and ninth innings, respectively. He finished 4 for 6 with two runs and four RBI. He is hitting .222 with just two homers and nine RBI in 81 at-bats.

(4/16/14) White Sox second baseman Marcus Semien has not fallen into a deep slump, but he has certainly struggled after a strong start.
Semien has just two hits in his last 16 at-bats to lower his batting average from .250 to .216. He has also fanned 16 times in 56 at-bats, but has shown a bit of the power that marked his minor league career with two doubles and two home runs.

(4/9/14) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien went 4 for 5 with a double, a walk, two runs, two RBI and a stolen base in his team's 15-3 win over the Rockies Tuesday.
Semien has been struggling at the plate and needs to put some quality performances on tape to keep a regular starting job once the infield gets healthy. Tuesday's performance helped, though he may not get full credit on a Colorado night in which nearly all the White Sox hitters were raking. Semien has hit .243/.300/.378 with one home run in 37 at-bats.

(4/3/14) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien made his first hit of the season count Thursday, as he followed up a pair of hitless outings with his first home run against the Twins.
Semien went just 1 for 4, but he scored and drove in a run twice, once on his home run and once following a walk. Semien also struck out twice, as the White Sox went on to lose, 10-9.
Semien is now just 1 for 14 to open the season, with five strikeouts and only one walk.
|White Sox send Gordon Beckham to DL |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/26/14) The White Sox made several moves on Wednesday, the most significant of which was the placement of starting second baseman Gordon Beckham on the disabled list with an oblique injury. Marcus Semien will replace him in the starting lineup.
The temporary loss of Beckham resulted in fellow second baseman Leury Garcia landing a spot on the opening day roster.
|Marcus Semien's 2013 numbers probably exaggerate his prospect appeal, but he emerged as a legitimate part of the White Sox's future with the breakthrough performance. And they offered a glimpse of that future down the stretch, shifting him between third base, second base and shortstop while giving him everyday at-bats. Unfortunately, his most trustworthy attribute, his on-base ability, abandoned him in the majors. After having a walk for every strikeout between Double- and Triple-A, his ratio was quite literally 1-to-22 in the majors, which simply won't do. Hopefully, it was just a product of inexperience or small sample size, because Semien's moderate power and speed (think Brian Dozier level) probably won't be enough to carry him. Even with the rocky transition, Semien did show some encouraging signs during his late-season trial. Were they enough to earn him a regular job at one of those positions -- or perhaps a part-time role at all three? In a rebuilding year, possibly. If that's the case, he's well worth drafting in AL-only leagues. Otherwise, you can wait until he does something notable.
