Chicago White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham underwent
surgery to repair the fractured hamate bone in his left hand, according to Dan
Hayes of CSN Chicago.
Beckham's surgery went "splendidly", expected to be six weeks. John Danks threw 71 pitches over 6 IP. He starts again Saturday. #WhiteSox

As usual, the report of Beckham’s surgery notes that it went
well. Someone actually went as far as telling Hayes that the procedure went “splendidly.”
Beckham sustained his injury last week, but he wasn’t
officially placed on the disabled list by the White Sox until Friday. As a
result of the fracture, he’s expected to be sidelined for six to eight weeks.
Following Beckham’s injury and with his extended absence
from the lineup, the White Sox have shifted offseason acquisition Jeff
Keppinger from third base to second, while they’ve moved Conor Gillaspie to the
hot corner to be the team’s primary player at third.
