Fantasy Impact: The 30-year-old INF played 88 games in 2016 hitting .212 with five home runs and 31 RBI. Beckham has no place being on any fantasy team. Ignore him on draft day.

The Braves have placed INF Gordon Beckham on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham had been one of the more productive Braves' hitters this season, posting an OPS of .813 over 31 games. Considering the injury and the lineup he's a part of, Beckham doesn't hold much value outside of the deepest leagues.

Beckham was 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored in an affair that saw the Braves win their first home series of the year. He has quietly been doing very well at the plate, as his average sits at .317, with an above average ISO, a solid OBP (.417) and an impressive wOBA of .396.

Fantasy Impact: The million dollar question is whether or not these numbers are even remotely sustainable. He will get the playing time as long as he is productive so we'll see if he can become consistent when consistency has been a flaw of his.

The Braves have placed INF Gordon Beckham on the 15-day DL with a strained left hamstring.

Fantasy Impact: This has more impact on the Braves than for fantasy purposes. Beckham was seeing more time prior to the injury, but he was mostly a reserve player holding little fantasy value.

Beckham went 2-for-3 with a double, run scored, and a walk in the Braves' 2-1 loss to the Nationals on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham got the start at 2B and moved to 3B at the end of the game. The native Georgian and former first-round pick by the White Sox has found himself regular playing time in the Braves infield. His fielding prowess has always been there, but if he can consistently get on base he could be useful in NL-only leagues in the future.

Beckham signed a one-year, $1.25 million contract after a dismal 2015 campaign with the White Sox. He grades out well defensively but has struggled at the plate.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham has been given opportunities to succeed but has been hampered by his struggles at the plate. The Braves have a tremendous hitting coach in Kevin Seitzer and eyes should be kept on this developing situation. It is likely that Beckham will be used as a utility infielder but he has the talent to exceed projections offensively if Seitzer can unlock that talent.

Gordon Beckham helped the White Sox top Boston on Tuesday. He went 2-for-4 with a run scored. That run sparked a three-run inning in the seventh to give the White Sox a 5-4 victory.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon Beckham does not deserve a fantasy roster spot. His defense and versatility is the only reason he has a MLB roster spot. He is hitting under .200 for the year and does not usually have games like this one. Look at other options before deploying Beckham in any formats.

Gordon Beckham's stat line from Wednesday does not look very impressive, but he played an important part in the White Sox win. The White Sox won 3-2 in 13 innings against the Angels, and Beckham drove in one of those runs. He went 0-for-1 with a RBI and a strikeout. His RBI came in the fifth inning when he hit a sacrifice fly ball.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon Beckham does not get many at-bats and lacks consistent production when he does. He should not be on any fantasy rosters. He is only hitting .192 this season. He is a utility option for the White Sox and he allows them to spell guys at both second and third base; that is his only value in baseball. Look elsewhere when filling in your lineup in any fantasy format.

The White Sox fell short to the Royals again on Sunday. However, Gordon Beckham finally had a productive day at the plate. The struggling third baseman went 1-for-3 with a RBI and run scored.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon Beckham is struggling again this year. He has had very limited playing time, and has done little with the time he has seen. He is hitting .193 on the season with a .559 OPS. Beckham does not have any fantasy value in any formats. Look elsewhere at the 3B position.

Gordon Beckham went 0-for-5 with three strike outs, in the White Sox victory over the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon Beckham continued his miserable season at the plate, by striking out three times , in a hit less night. Beckham is now hitting a lowly .199. Beckham should not be owned and only be used in a pinch, as a risky steaming option.

Gordon Beckham hit a pinch-hit walk-off home run in the 11th inning Sunday against the Rangers. Beckham entered the game to hit for Conor Gillaspie against LHP Alex Claudio.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham is hitting just .220 on the season over 142 plate appearances, so he's hardly a fantasy asset. However, with Carlos Sanchez struggling at second base, he could see an uptick in playing time.

Gordon Beckham played in both games of the White Sox double header against the Orioles. The 'platoon man' went 2-for-4 and 0-for-3 respectively in the games.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham has not been dazzling at the plate this season, but in an offense that has been horrendous he has been productive. With the average to poor performance of Conor Gillaspie, Alexei Ramirez, and Carlos Sanchez, Beckham will only get more opportunities.

Gordon Beckham is now the White Sox utility player. He subbed in for Micah Johnson and helped the White Sox win with his single in the ninth inning. Beckham went 1-for-2 with an RBI on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham does not get enough playing time to warrant a roster spot. He is batting.400, but only has 15 at-bats. Beckham is shining in his utility position, but he is not used enough to be relevant in fantasy.

Gordon Beckham played short-stop in Sunday's game against the Indians. Beckham went 0-for-3 at the plate. He grounded into a double-play, had a walk, groundout, batter interference, and a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Beckham is not having a very good spring, He is currently hitting .184. Beckham was brought back to be a utility player. He does not have any fantasy value at this time and will start the season on the bench for the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon Beckham had little fantasy production during his first stint with the White Sox. I would not expect his fantasy value to increase now that he has returned. In fact, he might not even be a starter heading into the season. Beckham gives the White Sox another option to fill in at second or third base, but that is all he has to offer at this point in his career.

Beckham's non-tender is not unexpected, as he was projected to earn $5 million by MLBTradeRumors.com, a quite expensive salary for a backup infielder. (Source: Alden Gonzalez)

Fantasy Impact: Beckham, now 28, struggled in 2014 hitting only .226/.271/.348 with nine homers over 127 games for the White Sox and Angels in 2014. Depending on where Beckham ends up, quite possibly back with the Angels for a lesser contract, he might be able to find a better opportunity elsewhere.
