White Sox 3B Gordon Beckham rewarding manager's faith


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) White Sox third baseman Gordon Beckham delivered an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Rangers. Beckham has been seeing regular playing time lately, and has been making the most of it. He has started 10 of the last 11 games for manager Robin Ventura, batting .333 (14 for 42) over that span.

"It's him playing well," said Ventura, per MLB.com. "He's been in the middle of a lot of stuff we've had. At times you have to [play the hot hand].

Beckham is back with the club who originally drafted him in 2008. Beckham spent the end of the 2014 season with the Angels after being traded to Anaheim in August.

"Some guys, you go away from where you originally were, and there's a different perspective," said manager Robin Ventura. "You might hear the same things but from different voices and a different set of eyes, and all of a sudden, you become a different person.

White Sox infielder Gordon Beckham finding his way


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) White Sox infielder Gordon Beckham may have needed to leave and return like the Prodigal Son to Chicago before he found success, according to the Daily Herald.

Beckham, in his second stint with Chicago, is hitting .350 with four RBI in 20 at-bats. Manager Robin Ventura is liking what he's seen from Beckham so far this season. 

"It can happen, it can jump on guys when there are expectations and the pressure gets there," manager Robin Ventura said. "For him, it might have been helpful to get traded away and go away for a while and come back with more of a clear conscience of who he is, where he's at. You get some information from somewhere else that maybe sticks in your skull differently than it did here.

"He's in a good frame of mind and that's the other big thing. All the stuff that has been said about him, but he can play baseball. We know that. He's a good player."

The White Sox are currently the underdogs (+135) against Baltimore.

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
(4/20/2015) 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.

White Sox infielder Gordon Beckham seeing results from swing changes


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) 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
(3/1/2015) 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.

Gordon Beckham plans to win White Sox second-base job


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) The White Sox wanted Gordon Beckham back, because he could play several positions. 

Beckham doesn't want to be a utility man, however. He plans to win back the starting second-base spot. 

“Listen, I plan to compete for a starting job, and if that’s not where I’m meant to be then I’ll do whatever I need to do,” Beckham told ESPN Chicago's Doug Padilla. “If I didn’t have that mentality, I wouldn’t be playing baseball.” 

Beckham arrived at camp three days early, to get a head start on his effort. 

"He’s coming in here to try and win a job and talking to him, that’s what he should be trying to do," manager Robin Ventura said. However, Ventura said he alreadyknows what Beckham can do at second base, so he'll get work at several other spots during the spring. 

After playing for the White Sox since 2009, Beckham was dealt to the Angels in late August. He returned to the Sox in the offseason, signing as a free agent.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"The possibility exists that we’ll re-sign Gordon, but no promises," Dipoto said. "We’ve built up quite a bit of infield depth. As much as Gordon fits our club and we want to be open to it, the likelihood is that we do have our second baseman in-house."
