Matt Eddy:

Beckham required only a 59-game stopover in the minor leagues on his flight from Athens, Ga., to Chicago. All he did while on his apprenticeship this season was lead the minors in doubles while playing every infield position but first base. The White Sox expect the natural shortstop’s maturity and energy to translate into immediate results. And so should you

UPDATE: Ben Bradler:

A little more than a year ago, Beckham was swinging a metal bat for Georgia. Now he’s hitting .271/.336/.415 with wood in 34 major league games as a 22-year-old. With his offensive tools, athleticism, youth and feel for the strike zone, Beckham has the potential to be a star in the big leagues.
