Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Angels acquired infielder Gordon Beckham from the Chicago White Sox on Thursday for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Beckham has played his entire six-year career in Chicago, but has not batted better than the .270 he hit his rookie year.
The 27-year-old is hitting a career-low .221 this season with seven home runs and 36 RBI. He has spent the past five seasons playing second base, but played 102 games at third in 2009.
