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 on Friday. 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.
