White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham sat out Sunday's game against the Braves, saying he started experiencing discomfort in his left wrist before batting practice Friday. Beckham had the hamate bone in his left hand removed in April. "I played with it taped up the last two days and it felt OK, but it just … wasn't right," Beckham said. "The doctor looked at it after the game (Saturday) night and he essentially said the ligament came off the bone. I know that sounds bad, but it's apparently just a strain. "It's going to take a little bit of time. Hopefully not too long." Jeff Keppinger filled in brilliantly in the field. "It started to bother me a little bit, and I wasn't able to make good swings," Beckham said. "If you can't do that, you shouldn't be on the field." Paulie, Paulie: Third baseman Brent Morel was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte after the game to make room for the activation of Paul Konerko on Monday before the series with the Tigers. Morel has hit .200 (5-for-25) with one RBI in 12 games over two stints with the Sox this season. Seeing stars: Chris Sale, who earned the win in last week's All-Star Game, was quick to acknowledge the highlight of his experience in New York. "Probably Mariano (Rivera) coming in to pitch," Sale said. "Hearing the music start and seeing him running in and warming up on the field and watching him out there was the coolest thing." Manager Robin Ventura is glad Sale is receiving greater exposure nationally.
