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.
