Avisail Garcia underwent successful surgery Tuesday morning to repair a torn labrum and avulsion fracture in his left shoulder.
Garcia suffered the injury last Wednesday when he dove for a ball in the outfielder. He has already been ruled out for the remainder of the 2014 season, which is a devastating blow. The good news is that he's just 22 and still has a bright future ahead of him. Alejandro De Aza and Dayan Viciedo should receive regular playing time moving forward, though Jordan Danks should also be in the mix for at-bats. Apr 15 - 2:05 PM

White Sox placed OF Avisail Garcia on the 15-day disabled list with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Garcia needs surgery to repair the labrum tear and has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2014 season. He suffered the injury Wednesday while diving for a ball in the outfield. It's a tough blow for the talented 22-year-old Venezuelan, who was sporting an .820 OPS through eight games this season. Jordan Danks has been recalled and should get regular playing time.

Avisail Garcia departed Wednesday's game due to a jammed left shoulder and is being called day-to-day.

Garcia left in the sixth inning favoring the shoulder after attempting to make a diving catch. X-rays on the shoulder came back negative for a fracture, separation or dislocation. Garcia will be re-evaluated in Chicago on Thursday, but the injury does not sound series.
Apr 9 - 6:22 PM

Avisail Garcia was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Rockies with an apparent side injury.

Garcia came up holding his left side after attempting a diving catch in the bottom of the sixth inning. The White Sox should update his status soon.

Avisail Garcia went 4-for-5 with two home runs as the White Sox rolled over the Rockies by a score of 15-3 Tuesday.

The Sox collected 19 hits and 15 runs, and Garcia was in the middle of it all. Garcia got the scoring started with a solo home run in the second inning before sending a solo shot over the boards in the eighth inning as well. To cap it off, Garcia batted again in the inning, driving in another run with a single. His four-hit game matched his hit total heading into the game, raising his average from .167 to .276 in one contest. It's a glimpse of how exciting the 22-year-old's game can be.
Apr 9 - 1:11 AM

Avisail Garcia is not in the White Sox starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

Instead, Dayan Viciedo will make his first start of the season in right field, with Alejandro De Aza remaining in left field, despite facing left-handed hurler Bruce Chen. Garcia is off to a brutal start to the season, as he's 3-for-18 (.167) on the season, and hitless in his last 13 at-bats.

Avisail Garcia belted a three-run homer off Clayton Kershaw on Saturday, powering the White Sox to a 5-4 victory over the Dodgers in Cactus League play.

He finished the night 2-for-3 with a run scored and four RBI. The 22-year-old outfielder is expected to hit second in the White Sox lineup, but hit cleanup on Saturday and looked very comfortable there. His developing blend of power and speed make him a popular option in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.
Mar 16 - 1:12 AM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura is intrigued by the possibility of Avisail Garcia batting second in the lineup.

"I think there's really an opportunity for him if we want to bat him second, he has that kind of approach at the plate, he does have some speed that we can utilize there," Ventura said. "When you look at it, you like what you see when you see him in there. It might happen." The 22-year-old has a combination of pop and speed that could make him a really productive No. 2 hitter in a lineup, and batting ahead of sluggers Jose Abreu and Adam Dunn wouldn't hurt, either. Wherever Garcia ends up batting, it won't be too far down in the order, and fantasy owners should keep him in mind on draft day regardless of his projected spot in the lineup.
Feb 26 - 10:00 PM

Avisail Garcia will be sidelined Friday and Saturday due to an ingrown toenail.

As long as it doesn't get worse, Garcia will be fine. The young outfielder is hoping to break out in 2014 after hitting .304/.327/.447 in 42 games for the White Sox last year following a trade with the Tigers.
