Latest Update Beckham drives in two runs in win over A's Fri Aug, 29, 07:28 AM
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.
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.

Beckham showed a lot of promise as a rookie, but he has struggled mightily since then. He wouldn't be the first guy to thrive after a change of scenery, and if he strings together a couple more nice games he could be worth a pick up for the stretch run.Analyst: Steve Pimental
The White Sox take on the Texas Rangers and Scott Baker, who's not a good pitcher anymore. Leury Garcia is starting at second base for the Sox tonight.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Although Saturday night's performance was nice to see from the White Sox second baseman, the fact that he is hitting only .183 since returning from the All-Star break outweighs anything positive he does for the time being. Through 342 at-bat this season, Beckham is slashing .228/.271/.360 with seven home runs and 35 RBI making him only an option in AL-only league while struggling at the plate. Analyst: Matthew Beck
