As others have said, with the upcoming schedule the Sox probably need another reliever.

Uh, I wouldn't really hold my breath, the kid's got nearly 550 games and over 2,000 plate appearances in his career, generally people don't just "find it" at that point. I might be somewhat hopeful if he was showing gradual, steady improvement, but he's generally gotten progressively worse over his career. I guess miracles do happen from time to time (****in magnets, how do they work?) but anybody who expects anything more from Beckham than what we've seen - good glove at 2B, average bat for a middle infielder - I think is going to continue to be dissapointed by him. He is what he is.

This board loves to think that career bench guys will suddenly be awesome. Hey, that Dallas McPherson was quite the buy!

Right-hander Deunte Heath was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.

Keppinger will move from third base to second base, where he has started the past two games against the Nationals and has played more than any other position in his career. Conor Gillaspie at third base against right-handed pitchers, and Ventura has confidence in Angel Sanchez's ability across the infield.

You're absolutely right about how his career has gone thus far. He went from our future at 3B to a quality fielder at 2B.

And I really haven't expected much from him these past 2 years, but after last year he hit a career high in HR's and I thought early season struggles really hindered him. He was finally having what looked to be a pretty nice start to the season, and I think without the injury he could've been somewhere around 20 HR .260. Still not the player we drafted, but certainly solid.
