I think the Sox can do better than having an all-field, no-hit guy at 2B.
I'm much more concerned with CF (De Aza is a 4th/5th OF- not a starter), 3B (Gillaspie is a nice prospect, but unproven, and his AAA stats are not "great"), 1B (Konerko looks like age is finally catching up with him), DH (Dunn is epically horrible) and catcher (leading the league in past balls while hitting < .200).

So Beckham is 6th on my priority list for what needs to be fixed-
