Come on, tell me something about the kid. Watched him last year during the CWS with the metal in his hand and really liked him. Now he's mashing with wood. Is Ozzy crazy enough to give him the full time 2B job right out of the gate or is he destined for the Braun/Longoria treatment of spending a month in the minors to put off his arbitration?

14 team H2H Points, 6 keepers, 20 round draft. Where do I put him on the draft board?

I doubt he starts the year in the majors, but I'd take a late round flier on him.

Per RotoWire:

CHI-A 3/21/2009
Beckham is likely headed to Triple-A with Chris Getz named Chicago's starting second baseman, the Chicago Tribune reports. Beckham is hitting 9-for-35 (.257) with two home runs this spring, but the 2008 first-round pick realistically needs some time at Triple-A. He should be up at some point this season and could take over the job if Getz falters.

I'm targeting him for my Dynasty League.
