Gordon BeckhamWhite Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham has been taken out of Chicago's game in Toronto after being hit in the face by a relay throw. After the game, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said he didn't believe the injury was serious and doesn't expect Beckham to need to go on the disabled list.

"It looked like he fought [Manny] Pacquiao," Guillen told reporters, including the Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales. "He was lucky. It could have been worse." 

In the third inning at Rogers Centre, Toronto's Juan Rivera hit his second double of the game, and the throw from Alex Rios hit Gordon square in the face.

The concern is it hit Beckham in the eye. He walked off the field with assistance, holding the area around his left eye. He was 0 for 1 when he left the game.
