Waiting for Gordo: White Sox Minor League Update

As those of you who talked with me at the various blog events know, I was planning to write a post about how Gordon Beckham was likely to be called up next month to replace one of Josh Fields or Chris Getz as a starter. I even had this nifty title all ready. But, as Wiz pointed out yesterday, what was an interesting angle on Tuesday isn't so much on Saturday when one finally has some time to write about it.

At any rate, since I need to put at least 75 words up here, I'll dump the notes here. The primary thought was that Beckham's bat is mostly ready and, while his defense at SS is still suspect, that can be papered over if he's playing at second or third (and he's made appearances this week at both of those positions). Fields in particular is playing himself out of the major leagues. After about the first week of June, one doesn't need to worry about Beckham getting enough service time to be a Super Two in arbitration. If the season is to be salvaged, Beckham may be able to provide more than the current options. And if it can't be salvaged, Beckham gets plenty of no pressure PAs.
