White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham was pulled from the White Sox’s 4-3 loss to the Orioles on Sunday with a strained groin. The injury, according to the Chicago Tribune, is being called “moderate,” but groin injuries can be pretty tricky.
Brent Lillibridge replaced him at second base and is likely to start there for the next several days. He’s batting .359/.375/.641 this season with one home run and 13 RBI in 39 at-bats.
Gordon, meanwhile, is hitting .251/.308/.368 this season with six homers and 37 RBI in 351 at-bats. He had a horrible start to the year, but has a 1.021 OPS since the All-Star break and looked to be coming around at the plate. No word yet on when he might be back or if a disabled list stint will be necessary.
