Unsure how long he'll be sidelined, Chicago White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham wore a thick wrap nearly the size of a football to keep ice on his injured left wrist Wednesday.
Beckham said his wrist did not feel much better when he woke up Wednesday, but it did improve after getting treatment.
He still has not swung a bat since leaving Tuesday night's game in the third inning after feeling pain while fouling off a pitch in his first at-bat during Chicago's 8-7 loss to the Washington Nationals.
''I think tomorrow will be the big test. If I wake up and it feels better, I think it'll be fine. If not, we'll probably have to do an MRI or something,'' Beckham said Wednesday. ''I'm actually happy about the way it's felt since I've gotten to the field and done some work to it. So that's a positive thing and hopefully tomorrow it'll be that much better.''
Jeff Keppinger was given the start at second base in Beckham's place, with Conor Gillaspie replacing Keppinger at third.
