MLB Injury News:
The Chicago White Sox held second baseman Gordon Beckham out
of yesterday’s first-half finale against the Philadelphia Phillies. After
Beckham suffered a left thigh bruise during the second game of Saturday’s
double-header versus the Phillies, manager Robin Ventura told reporters – including
Scott Merkin of MLB.com – that there was little chance the second baseman would
suit up Sunday.
"It's just a bruise, it's just a deep one," said
Ventura of Beckham. "I highly doubt he would get in there today. You never
know into the game or something like that, but as of right now he really
doesn't have a chance of playing."
Considering Beckham is just dealing with a bruised leg, it
would appear that he’ll be able to resume regular play following the All-Star
break. The 26-year-old will stay off the leg and receive treatment for the
bruising, but assuming all goes well over the break he should be back in action
Beckham is hoping the minor ailment won’t derail his impressive
start to the season. The second baseman has hit .335/.357/.443 with nine
doubles, one triple, two home runs and five stolen bases in six attempts over
169 plate appearances.
