Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham is hitting .394 during his current eight-game hitting streak and is .361 in his last 20 games. He's had 13 hits in 28 at-bats against left-handed pitchers, to boot. "He's at a comfort level he hasn't had the last couple of years of knowing who he is, and the confidence he has day to day is part of it," said manager Robin Ventura. "Mechanically, you have to do things right, but mentally, you have to go with that, too. He's just in a good spot."

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham will resume the role of the starting second baseman now that he's back from the disabled list. Beckham hit .267 with five home runs and 24 RBIs in 103 games for the team last year. "You don't lose that spot just because you're hurt," manager Robin Ventura said. "So we expect him to be in there." 2B Marcus Semien will go back to a backup role.
Fantasy Tip: Beckham is back in the starting role, but if he doesn't hit, Semien could at least mix in frequently at the keystone. As long as he's starting every day, Beckham is decent middle infield insurance in cavernous mixed setups.

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham (oblique) is on track to return to the team this weekend after rehabbing with Double-A Birmingham.
Fantasy Tip: Beckham will steal valuable playing time from Marcus Semien at the keystone when he returns. That'll make Semien mainly a middle infield depth piece in AL-only leagues.

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham (oblique) was 0-for-4 while hitting second for Double-A Birmingham in a rehab game Monday, April 21. He served as the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Beckham will likely need to play several back-to-back games in the field before the White Sox are comfortable activating him. Marcus Semien could platoon with Beckham initially upon his return.

Chicago White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham (oblique) played his first game at second base during his minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham. He was hitless in six at-bats during the doubleheader Tuesday, April 15.
Fantasy Tip: There is no word on when Beckham will officially return from the 15-day disabled list. However, fantasy owners will want to play it safe and keep him reserved until he can play a game or two to prove his health before plugging him back into the active lineup.
