WASHINGTON (AP) - Chicago White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham is out of the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals a day after injuring his left wrist.
Manager Robin Ventura and Beckham are not sure how long he'll be sidelined.
Beckham says his wrist did not feel much better when he woke up Wednesday, but it did improve after getting treatment. He still has not swung a bat.
He left Tuesday's game in the third inning after feeling pain while fouling off a pitch in his first at-bat of Chicago's 8-7 loss to Washington.
White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper, meanwhile, is still hospitalized with a stomach illness. Ventura is not sure whether Cooper will be able to travel with the team for its series that begins Friday at the Cleveland Indians.
