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.

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.

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: 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.

Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against Detroit due to a strained left wrist.

Description: White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham has been red hot lately (9-for-21 in his last six games). Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he'll be facing his nemesis David Price on Sunday.
Insight: The Tampa Bay lefthander hasn't been very kind to Beckham over the years (1-for-18 with three strikeouts). Today might be a good day to test someone else out at second base.
 
6/5/2013 9:51:00 PM
Description: Chicago second baseman Gordon Beckham went 4-for-7 in Wednesday's marathon victory over the Mariners.
Insight: Beckham, who also stole two bases in the contest, crossed home with the game-winning run in the 16th inning. He's 5-for-14 since coming off the disabled list on Monday.

Insight: Beckham suffered a broken hamate bone in his left hand on April 9. The team said a few days ago that he was scheduled to return June 6, but White Sox manager Robin Ventura indicated he'd be back sooner than that. Beckham will get his starting job back, but hasn't been a solid fantasy value since his rookie season of 2009.

Insight: Beckham suffered what was initially called nerve irritation Tuesday on a hard swing, but tests have revealed the fracture. He'll need surgery to repair it.
