Will Beckham finally be fantasy relevant again since his rookie season in 2009?

I'm not saying he'll be an All-Star.  But a top 10 2B isn't out of the question from what his potential once showed.  If he could OPS in the low 800's like he did his rookie year that would have put him 3rd last year among qualified.

I don't think a .280 batting average or 20 HRs is exactly out of the question.  Beckham has just been a bit over whelmed in years past and it hindered his confidence.

Off to a solid start I think he could start building on it and really get hot.

Damn it, I just tuned into The Sox game like 20 mins ago too.  They haven't mentioned it.  Anyone know what happened?

He swung and complained of wrist pain. Not good. If he would've been hit by a pitch it could be worse but this is not good. getting injured without contact is not good. hopefully just a bit of discomfort during his swing. He took himself out though and I think he's guaranteed to miss at least a few games as they re-evaluate.

As a Sox fan, all I can say is bring up Carlos Sanchez and let another team use Beckham as a reclamation project.
I remember one evening in the pouring rain
And in my heart there was an aching pain
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

Out 6 weeks.  I never like to see an injury but I suppose this is good news for a lot of people -- mainly owners of De Aza who won't be stifled by hitting behind Gordon.

Today the Sox played Keppinger at 2B and Gillespie at 3B.  Any homers know what the longer term outlook will be in terms of PT situations?  Is Gillespie likely to see the majority of starts at 3B now?

That seems to be the case right now. They appear to be content using Gillespie at 3B, and Kepp over at 2B, with apparently Angel Sanchez getting a bit of time when needed :rolleyes:  I haven't heard any rumblings of Sanchez or Morel coming up.

Either way quite a weak infield IMO (regardless of Beckham's health... hah).

I wonder if Tyler Greene might get a chance. Well, Gillespie is hitting.. for now.

I lost Rutledge, I may have to gamble on this being a breakout year for Beckham, anyone else in the same boat?

Looks like he had a hand surgery...could this affect his power?  I didn't realize he hit 16 homers last year, that's great for an MI.

I grabbed him back up after plugging the hole with the likes of Punto, Rosales, and Mark Ellis (who got hurt).  Ellis is playing decent right now so I'll keep Beckham on the bench to make sure he's ok.

Anyone else taking a chance on Beckham? There aren't many solid options out there at 2B this year. With Rutledge being demoted, Utley getting injured, and Espinosa doing absolutely nothing and a few others underachieving, Beckham might be worth taking a look at.

He should be back this weekend.

Thoughts?

Will he be back today?
And all the greatest of the heroes
Started jumping from the books
They started wearing ones and zeros
Looking more and more like crooks
They stole the sunlight from the future
Took a sip, drank half the glass then put it back

Minor setback it appears...

Quote

Gordon Beckham isn't playing Friday with Triple-A Charlotte due to soreness in his surgically-repaired left hand.
Beckham had surgery in mid-April to remove the hamate bone from his hand, so the White Sox don't want to take any chances. He's expected to be held out of action until next Wednesday at the earliest.

Gordon Beckham (hand) is scheduled to resume his minor league rehab assignment Friday.
Beckham hasn't played since last Thursday due to soreness in his surgically-repaired left hand. As long as there are no other setbacks, he should rejoin the White Sox during their next homestand in early June.
