Washington • Chicago White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham is expected to miss about six weeks because of a broken bone in his left wrist.

General manager Rick Hahn says before Chicago's game at Washington on Thursday that an MRI showed Beckham hurt the left hamate bone. He'll need surgery.

Beckham says he first felt pain in the wrist while fouling off a pitch in the second inning of Chicago's 8-7 loss to the Nationals on Tuesday night. He left that game in the third inning, and the White Sox announced then he had nerve irritation in the wrist.

Beckham sat out Wednesday and was replaced at second base for that game and Thursday's by Jeff Keppinger, with Conor Gillaspie taking Keppinger's spot at third.

Beckham is hitting .316 this season.
