Description: Former White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham was traded to the Angels Thursday night.
Insight: Beckham will back up Howie Kendrick at second and David Freese at third so has little to no fantasy value. Not that he did even when starting every day in Chicago batting .221 with a .598 OPS.
 
Cold7/11/2014 9:54:00 AM
Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham is just 1-for-13 (.077) against Cleveland right-hander Corey Kluber.
Insight: Beckham put together a good May (.306, 4 HR, 10 RBI, .810 OPS), but has since fallen off the map batting just .194 in 36 games from June 1 to July 10.
 
Hot6/15/2014 11:20:00 AM
Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham has hit two doubles and two homers in 29 at-bats against Kansas City starter James Shields.
Insight: Beckham is 9-for-29 (.310) against Shields and has hit over .300 with 14 extra-base hits in 157 at-bats since the start of May.
 
Hot6/11/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham has a career-high .298 average and his .766 OPS is his highest since 2009, but he's gone 7-for-34 (.206) against Tigers starter Justin Verlander.
Insight: Beckham has hit .375 in June, but he isn't worth using Wednesday with Verlander on the hill.
 
Hot6/9/2014 11:05:00 AM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham is a career .414 hitter (12-for-29) against Detroit right-hander Rick Porcello.
Insight: Beckham is hitting .288 for the season after a big May (.306) and has continued into June. Hot hitter plus favorable matchup equals must start.
 
5/26/2014 7:20:00 AM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham has been hot of late, but faces a tough matchup in Indians starter Josh Tomlin.
Insight: Beckham is hitting .289 for the season and .323 in the month of May, but is 1-for-9 with four strikeouts against Tomlin over his career.
 
5/24/2014 8:18:00 PM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham went 3-for-4 Saturday in a loss to the Yankees.
Insight: He's hit safely in 17 of his last 19 games. Overall, Beckham is hitting .326 with nine RBI in the month of May.
 
5/8/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham went deep for the second straight game Wednesday against the Cubs.
Insight: Beckham is hitting .231 (12-for-52) this season. He has posted an OPS below .700 in each of the last four seasons and sits there again in 2014.
 
4/27/2014 11:07:00 AM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham is hitting a brutal .136 in 22 lifetime at bats versus David Price.
Insight: That doesn't bode well for Beckham with Price (3-1, 4.04 ERA) getting the start on Sunday. So far, Beckham is 2-for-10 since being activated from the disabled list on Thursday.
 
4/24/2014 12:14:00 PM
Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham has been activated from the disabled list and is in Thursday's starting lineup.
Insight: Beckham missed the first few weeks of the season with a strained oblique. His return will mean less playing time for Marcus Semien (.234, 3 HR, 13 RBI) and Conor Gillaspie (.302, 0 HR, 12 RBI).
 
4/22/2014 9:22:00 PM
Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham should be activated from the disabled list later this week. SOURCE: WhiteSox.com
Insight: He's hoping to play this weekend against the Rays. Beckham missed the first few weeks of the season with a strained oblique. His return will probably mean less playing time for Marcus Semien (.227, 2 HR, 9 RBI) and Conor Gillaspie (.302, 0 HR, 12 RBI).
 
3/26/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham (oblique) will begin the season on the disabled list, according to Scott Merkin of mlb.com.
Insight: Beckham had a promising rookie year in 2009 but has posted an OPS south of .700 in each of the last four seasons. There's no reason to own him in mixed leagues. With Jeff Keppinger (shoulder) also starting the season on the DL, Marcus Semien will start at second base.
 
3/15/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham will be shut down for the next week with a strained oblique. SOURCE: Scot Gregor, Daily Herald
Insight: Beckham's 2013 season was disappointing to say the least. With just five hits in his first 30 spring training at bats (.167 AVG), 2014 isn't off to such a great start either. Avoid him in fantasy leagues.
 
9/10/2013 11:53:00 AM
Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham is a career .435 hitter (10-for-23) against Detroit right-hander Rick Porcello.
Insight: Beckham has done little this season, batting .274 with four homers ans 21 RBI in 88 games so it would be a huge risk to start him even with these favorable numbers.
 
9/4/2013 12:10:00 PM
Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham owns Yankees starter CC Sabathia.
Insight: Sabathia, who takes the hill for his 29th start of the season Wednesday at Yankee Stadium, has given up eight hits to Beckham in 20 at bats. Beckham broke out of an 0-for-11 drought by smacking two hits in Tuesday's loss.
 
Cold9/2/2013 10:26:00 AM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham didn't play yesterday and it might be wise to sit him again Monday against New York.
Insight: That's because Beckham is only hitting .077 against Yankees starter Phil Hughes. Given the slump he's been in over the last week (just two for his last 19), we wouldn't recommend putting Beckham in your lineup on Labor Day.

Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham left Thursday's game in the fourth inning after suffering a strained right quad. SOURCE: Dan Hayes, Comcast Sportsnet Chicago
Insight: Jeff Keppinger took over for Beckham at second base. Beckham is a longshot for Friday's series opener against Minnesota.
 
8/14/2013 6:30:00 PM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham went 3-for-4 with a walk Wednesday and is hitting .308 this season.
Insight: Beckham has played just 66 games this season due to a broken hand so there isn't much weight in that batting practice, but he's still having his best season since he was a rookie in 2009.
 
Cold7/28/2013 12:54:00 PM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham has been awful versus Kansas City righthander Bruce Chen.
Insight: How awful? Try 4-for-27 with eight strikeouts awful. Beckham has been a disaster recently, managing just one hit in his last 19 trips to the plate. We'd sit him with Chen pitching on Sunday.
 
7/26/2013 4:01:00 PM
Description: According to Scott Merkin of MLB.com, White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham (wrist) is back in the lineup Friday.
Insight: Beckham hasn't played since July 20. He's hitting .325 with a .774 OPS in 166 at-bats this season.
