      Tigers' Gordon Beckham: Fourth straight start

      Gordon Beckham will start at second base and bat eighth Thursday against the Rangers.Beckham will stick in the lineup for the fourth straight contest, signaling that manager Ron Gardenhire at least tentatively views him as the top option at the keystone. The veteran is batting just .171 in June and likely doesn't have much of a future with the rebuilding Detroit Tigers, so his standing atop the depth chart appears quite shaky.

      Tigers' Gordon Beckham: Starting Sunday

      Gordon Beckham is starting at second base and batting sixth in Sunday's game against the Braves.Beckham picks up his first start of the Atlanta series, though he did play four innings in Friday's game. The 32-year-old is slashing .229/.319/.446 with three home runs and five RBI in a reserve role for the Detroit Tigers this season and is mostly off the fantasy radar, due to his limited playing time and modest production.

      Tigers' Gordon Beckham: Leading off in second straight

      Gordon Beckham will start at shortstop and bat leadoff Thursday against the Marlins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.Beckham will bat out of the leadoff spot for the second straight day, with the two starts coming on rest days for everyday infielders Dawel Lugo and Josh Harrison. Though neither Lugo nor Harrison has done much to warrant regular at-bats, Beckham won't necessarily earn serious consideration for steady playing time due to his status as a 32-year-old journeyman on a rebuilding club.

      Tigers' Gordon Beckham: Sticking in utility role

      Gordon Beckham isn't expected to see regular work at third base after the Detroit Tigers recalled Dawel Lugo from Triple-A Toledo ahead of Thursday's game against the Athletics, Jason Beck of MLB.com. "We're bringing [Lugo] up here to play, not to sit," manager Ron Gardenhire said.Following the demotion of everyday third baseman Jeimer Candelario to Triple-A after Wednesday's loss to the Astros, Beckham temporarily topped the depth chart at third base. Though Beckham has been impressive at the plate in his limited opportunities this season with an .886 OPS, giving regular at-bats to a 32-year-old journeyman probably doesn't hold much appeal for a rebuilding Tigers club. Instead, the Tigers will see if the 25-year-old Lugo can establish himself at the major-league level after hitting .341 at Triple-A this season, albeit with little pop.

      Tigers' Gordon Beckham: Sees another start at shortstop

      Gordon Beckham will start at shortstop and bat seventh Thursday against the Angels, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.Beckham will draw a second straight start at shortstop after the Detroit Tigers placed their primary option at the position, Jordy Mercer, back on the 10-day injured list Thursday. While Mercer and Josh Harrison (shoulder) are both sidelined, steady playing time in the middle infield should be available for both Beckham and Ronny Rodriguez. However, with Harrison expected to return from the IL in short order, Beckham may quickly slip back into a reserve role.
