Player Notes
Angels acquired 2B Gordon Beckham from the White Sox for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Advice: If you're going to gamble, this is the type of player -- and acquisition cost -- to do it on. Beckham has been pretty awful this year -- slashing .221/.263/.336 -- but it's worth finding out if there's still offensive upside in that bat (he entered the year with a career .694 OPS, though Beckham has steadily regressed since logging an .808 OPS as a rookie in 2009). The Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen wrote earlier this month that the White Sox would probably non-tender Beckham this offseason, so you can understand why they'd take whatever was offered to them. Beckham will back up Howie Kendrick and David Freese. Meanwhile, we expect Marcus Semien to be promoted for an extended look at second base by the White Sox.

Daryl Van Schouwen writes that "it seems possible" the White Sox will non-tender Gordon Beckham this offseason.

Advice: Not only is it possible, it's probably likely. Beckham figures to earn north of $5 million in his final year of arbitration, and the White Sox have cheaper and likely better alternatives at second base in Marcus Semien, Carlos Sanchez and Micah Johnson. Beckham is sporting a career-low .606 OPS this season and is a career .244/.307/.375 hitter. The White Sox figure to make one last effort to trade him this winter, but it seems likely that they'll just wind up cutting him loose.
