CLEVELAND – The White Sox have placed second baseman Gordon Beckham on the 15-day disabled list with a broken bone in his left wrist and recalled right-hander Deunte Heath from Triple-A Charlotte.

Beckham, who is batting .316 in seven games, will have surgery Tuesday at the Cleveland Clinic and is expected to miss about six weeks. He was injured during his second-inning at-bat Tuesday against Washington and an MRI revealed the fracture.

Jeff Keppinger has started the past two games at second base. Heath made two relief appearances at Charlotte, allowing no runs with six strikeouts in two games.
