MLB Winter Meetings 2011: White Sox Making Gordon Beckham Available Too, According To Report

The 2012 MLB Winter Meetings began on Monday, and as general managers and front office members gather to discuss potential deals, the Chicago White Sox are willing to listen to trade offers on John Danks, Gavin Floyd, Carlos Quentin and now young second baseman Gordon Beckham, according to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports. The first three players listed have been on the trading block for quite a while, but it was previously thought Gordon Beckham was untouchable for Sox GM Ken Williams.  

Beckham has fallen off as a prospect after finishing fifth in American League Rookie of the Year Voting back in 2009, hitting just .230/.296/.337 in a very forgettable 2011 campaign. To sell low on a once touted prospect like Beckham would be a tough decision for the White Sox, especially considering he is cost-controlled ($485,000 salary last season) and under team control for several more season. However, it never hurts to listen when at the Winter Meetings, and GM Ken Williams has a long history of making trades to shake up the roster when things aren't going well.
