CHICAGO -- Gordon Beckham will resume his Minor League rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday after being shut down last Friday while experiencing ongoing soreness in his surgically repaired left hand. Beckham had a fractured hamate bone removed in that hand.

Beckham, who has not played at the big league level since April 9, is 7-for-22 during five rehab games. He probably will only need a handful of games with the Knights if all goes well, and he could rejoin the White Sox after the out-of-Chicago part of the team's eight-game road trip.

"He'll probably come back when we're back for Oakland [on June 6]," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "I don't see him making it back when we're in Seattle [from June 3-5]."
