Player Notes
Gordon Beckham drove in two runs on Thursday.

Advice: The RBI single was his only hit of the game, as he finished 1-for-3 with a walk. Beckham's now put together back-to-back solid games for the Angels. He homered on Wednesday. As we're optimists, we'd like to say that this is a sign of rejuvenation for the former top prospect. We are also realists, though, and it's unlikely that Beckham discovered magic fairy dust in Anaheim. On the season he's slashing a less-than-magical .221/.263/.340.

Gordon Beckham hit his first home run as an Angel in Wednesday's 6-1 win against Miami.

Advice: He finished 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and two runs scored. It was his first homer since June 24, part of the reason Beckham was available for the low, low price of a player to be named later or cash considerations last week. He hasn't set the world on fire in Los Angeles either, going hitless in seven at-bats over three appearances coming into tonight. Backing up Howie Kendrick and David Freese, Beckham doesn't retain a ton of fantasy value on the Angels.

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.
