Latest Update Angels non-tendered INF Gordon Beckham, RHP Yoslan Herrera and LHP Wade LeBlanc. Tue Dec, 02, 07:57 PM
Has a great arm and the ability to play a solid second base. Boasts good home-run power. Is improving his ability to make contact. Works hard.
Flaws: : Lacks consistency as a hitter, particularly in the power department. Isn't a big guy, so he can slow down late in the season because he never lets up.
Gordon is the main player to note here as the once top prospect in the White Sox organization was traded to the Angels in August and hit .268 over 26 games. Beckham has never lived up to his prospect status and will look to hook onto a major league club in a utility role.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Beckham teases occasionally with his bat, but is no longer showing the power he demonstrated just a few seasons ago. While he can provide an average bat in the infield, he is an underwhelming option and is at best a late round pick in any fantasy draft given his lack of pop and speed. He is coming off a 2014 triple slash line of .226/.271/.348 with just nine dingers in 446 at bats with the White Sox and Angels.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
The home run was Beckham's 9th of the season and only his second since June 25th. He's a below average hitter and barely average defender. He's unlikely to be more than utility player and injury fill in for the Angels or any other organization. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Since joining the Angels, Beckham is 3-for-14 (.214 BA) with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored while starting to see regular at-bats at the hot corner. With a solid lineup hitting ahead of him, Beckham could turn into a nice run-producing option for those in deep mixed leagues, but until he shows he can be more consistent he is best served on the waiver wire.
