So if Ramirez and Richar have entrenched themselves in the middle infield, could Beckham play well at third (to allow Fields to move to 1B or DH)?
I have not seen him play but Doug Lauman, the amateur scouting director for the Sox who drafted him, said that Beckham could play SS,2B, and 3B so it is a possibility.
