White Sox's Beckham leaves with quad strain

The SportsXchange

Chicago White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham exited Thursday's game at Minnesota due to a right quadriceps strain, and he might sit out a few games.

Manager Robin Ventura said he lifted Beckham for precautionary reasons, making the move in the fourth inning of the White Sox's 4-3 loss to the Twins.

Beckham singled to right field in the first inning and grounded out to shortstop in the third.

"It's been there for a little," Ventura said of Beckham's quad ailment. "He says it only hurts when he runs really hard. Going down the first base line in the second at-bat, he felt it a little more than he has in the past. But if you can't run in the field, then you probably shouldn't play. He'll probably be out a couple days."

Beckham added, "What I felt tonight, I've felt other games. Maybe it was a little worse, I don't know. It's been something that's just been kind of off and on that I've just been playing through."

Beckham missed 47 games from mid-April to early June after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured hamate bone in his left hand. He is batting .310/.361/.418 with three homers and 17 RBIs in 67 games this year.
