    The Chicago White Sox have traded second baseman Gordon Beckham to the Los Angeles Angels, the team announced Thursday.

    The trade is in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations, the Sox said in a statement.

    Beckham, 27, agreed to the terms of a one-year contract on Jan. 17. He's currently batting .221 with 24 doubles, seven home runs and 36 RBI in 101 games this year, the team said. He has the second- and third-highest fielding percentages by a second baseman in Sox history.

    "Chicago will make a corresponding roster move prior to tomorrow night’s series opener against New York at Yankee Stadium," the team said.
