Latest Update Gordon Beckham doubles in two runs Sat Jul, 12, 06:35 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.
Beckham had been slumping very badly lately, four for his last 40, but may be breaking out of his slump following this strong game. Beckham is a streaky hitter, and may be able to get on a roll going into the All-star break. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Beckham has flashed his power stroke over the last nine days having gone yard three times, but outside of that he has had trouble putting the bat on the ball on a consistent basis as he is hitting just .154 over his last seven games and .240 over his last 25 games. So, if you can find a way to use his recent power surge to your advantage on the open market you may want to jump on that opportunity.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Despite hitting a mere .136 over his last seven games, Beckham has managed to go yard twice while driving in seven runs. He is now sitting on a .268 average with six home runs and 22 RBI while sporting a respectable .322 on-base percentage. Although he hasn't been the most consistent second basemen this season, he still warrants some consideration in deep league formats while batting in the first third of the White Sox lineup.Analyst: Matthew Beck
While Jose Abreu will get the majority of the attention for the White Sox win on Wednesday as he hit his fourth home run since coming off the disabled list June 2nd it is Beckham's recent resurgence, alas Indians Lonnie Chisenhall (to a lesser degree), who should be catching fantasy owner's eye more so because Abreu is 100% owned while Beckham remains less than 20% owned in most leagues. Put your Beckham bias behind you, god knows I've had to after drafting him in most dynasty leagues, and let his recent numbers speak for themselves as he has hit safely in eight of last nine games (.361, 13-36) and is hitting .338 (44-130) with eight doubles, four homers and 14 RBI since May 6th, raising his season average from .234 to .297.Analyst: Michael Pichan
