Ozzie Guillen on Gordon Beckham’s defense

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ July 12, 2009 8:18 pm


Beckham committed two errors at third base in the first-half finale at the Metrodome, giving him nine for the season. Guillen knows Beckham’s defense has to continue to improve for the White Sox to contend, part of the overall expected strong defensive play for the team, but Guillen also knows Beckham is learning on the job. “This kid made a lot of big plays for us,” Guillen said. “In the meanwhile, we’re asking him to be a big league third baseman when he didn’t play many games in the Minor Leagues. He’s doing a good job. He’s going to make errors. We have be patient with him. He’ll continue to work. We’ll continue to support him. At some time, you learn from mistakes.”
