Gordon Beckham will not play in the series finale of the White Sox/Nationals series today.  He suffered nerve irritation in his left wrist on Tuesday when swinging at a pitch from Gio Gonzalez.  Beckham has not been able to return to the field since.  However, he is looking at a possible return tomorrow, but that all depends on how his wrist feels today. Scott Merkin of MLB.com says Beckham will not take batting practice or even pick up a bat until tomorrow.  If there is still irritation and pain in the wrist, Beckham will likely be out Friday and possibly longer.  If the irritation has subsided, he'll be back in the lineup.  There is a concern that the injury may be more severe, though.  If progress is not made, an MRI will be ordered. "I actually woke up this morning, and it didn't feel much better," Beckham said. "Obviously we're taking anti-inflammatories and doing a lot of work in there. It feels better since I woke up, but I think tomorrow will be the big test." The White Sox will try to avoid the three-game sweep today.  They would love to have Beckham available, but would rather him get healthy for the remainder of the season.  Starting in his place will likely be Jeff Keppinger.  Beckham has had a nice start to the season, collecting six hits in his first 21 plate appearances, but he will have to get back into a rhythm once he returns from this injury.  That can often be difficult for players. Beckham is in his fifth year in the Majors.  He has spent all five seasons with the White Sox.  Beckham is a career .246/.312/.381 hitter.

ChiSox's Beckham nursing wrist injury

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.

Duente Heath Called Up in Wake of Beckham Injury

White Sox manager Robin Ventura certainly cut the breaks and pulled a wild card on us all by calling up 27 year-old relief pitcher Duente Heath instead of others like Brian Omogrosso, Brent Morel, or Jordan Danks. First of all, I should apologize to all of you non "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" fans who didn't understand the 'wild card' reference...

Hawk Harrelson rips sabermetrics? NO! WAY!

During the White Sox’s 5-2 loss to the Nationals on Wednesday, play-by-play announcer Hawk Harrelson took it upon himself to rip sabermetrics. That evil, newfangled thing that is ruining the game of baseball. The audio is preserved by MLB Network's MLB Now and the subject of a debate between Brian Kenny and Harold Reynolds...

Gavin Floyd hung a slider to Bryce Harper and now he’s never going to see it again

On a night when Gavin Floyd had great stuff to start with (he had allowed only an Ian Desmond double to this point), Bryce Harper was waiting in the weeds. What follows in the video is his fourth home run of the season, and 26th of his career. It tied the game at 1-1 in a game the Nationals would eventually win 5-2. When you look at Harper, he doesn’t look like a guy who has...

Chicago White Sox (4-5) at Cleveland Indians (3-5) Series 4, Games 11, 12 and 13 Progressive Field (2012): 0.899, Pitchers park.

April 12: Indians 1, White Sox 0

In the White Sox 4th consecutive loss, a great pitching performance from Jose Quintana wasn't quite enough, as a 9th inning rally and walk-off single from Nick Swisher got the Indians their 4th win of the season.
