First-year White Sox third baseman Gordon Beckham said he will work on being a lot stronger and more prepared in 2010 after being named The Sporting News’ American League rookie of the year on Tuesday. Beckham said he will hit the weight room in hopes of taking advantage of U.S. Cellular Field’s short fences. The 23-year-old infielder hit 14 home runs in 103 games in 2009, and hopes to be able to hit more home runs to all fields next season.

the Sox claimed the 25-year old OF (CF) from the Marlins:

The White Sox on Wednesday claimed De Aza off waivers. At Triple-A New Orleans, De Aza batted .300 with eight home runs and 34 RBIs. He also appeared in 22 games for the Marlins, and he had 20 at-bats, batting .250 with a double and three RBIs. Injuries hurt De Aza in recent years. De Aza won the starting center field job in Spring Training of 2007, but early in the season he suffered an ankle injury that limited him to 45 games that year. He missed all of 2008 due to injury.

De Aza was born in the Dominican Republic says Wikipedia. Here are his stats: Baseball-Reference, FanGraphs, First Inning.
