Wouldn't be surprising, but not a good start to the season.

2014 is Beckham's last kick at the can with the White Sox. He's out of mulligans. If he's injured, bad, or some combination of injured and bad this year, he won't be here in 2015. The Sox have organizational depth at 2B. Gordon is going to find himself expendable if he doesn't get healthy and start producing.

Robin Ventura said it is likely that @gordonbeckham (https://twitter.com/gordonbeckham) will begin season on DL & Marcus Semien & @leurygarcia1 (https://twitter.com/leurygarcia1) will share duties at 2nd base.

Makes sense....do not aggravate the oblique in cold weather.
Long season...Gordo needs to get healthy and give it his very best shot.

Must mean Keppinger is going on DL if we are keeping both Garcia and Semien

I heard on the radio that his shoulder feels like it did before his surgery. He might be dled for awhile considering the Sox sure dont need another dh.

I don't really see a scenario where Beckham is with the Sox after 2014- between Garcia, Semian and Micah Johnson- I think we're covered at 2nd base for 2015- they all need another year of development and I think Hahn was hopeful that Beckham could bring some trade value this year- which led to the one yer deal for Gordon.

I was still optimistic for Gordon to finally combine his defense with a solid season on offense (showed some positive signs around the injuries last year)- but he's looking pretty brittle and injury prone at this stage.

Agreed. Semien looks ready and Micah Johnson and Carlos Sanchez are knocking on the door. There are also lot of contending clubs looking for middle infield help due to injuries. The Rangers have lost Profar for at least 3 months, the Tigers have lost Iglesias for the season, and Brendan Ryan doesn't have a return time table in NY right now. Not to mention that the Jays have been linked to Beckham rumors in previous months. The Sox could decide Beckham is expendable regardless of how he plays this year if the right deal presents itself. If Semien gets off to a hot start and Beckham's oblique injury lingers, it will be interesting to see how Robin handles playing time when he comes off the DL.

Does Keppinger even appear in uniform for us this season?
