Dan Hayes of reports that the White Sox are open to trading Avisail Garcia.
Hayes adds that the White Sox have "already entertained offers" for the 24-year-old corner outfielder, who struggled to the tune of a .257/.309/.365 slash line in 2015. Garcia is entering his first year of salary arbitration (as a Super Two qualifier) and the White Sox feel they have adequate outfield depth without him between Melky Cabrera, Adam Eaton, and fast-riser Trayce Thompson. "Their people are very frustrated with [Garcia]," a scout told Nov 19 - 10:45 AM

Avisail Garcia went 3-for-5 with three singles, a run scored and two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Mariners.

This was Garcia's fifth three-hit game of the season. He's also managed a four-hit game. On May 31, he was hitting .323/.360/.445, but as the weeks passed and summer turned its lonely eyes toward the end of August, that lovely slash-line has fallen to its current .268/.317/.379 state.

Avisail Garcia worked a bases-loaded walk in the top of the 10th to break a 3-3 tie in the White Sox's 6-3 win over the Mariners on Saturday.

Garcia also singled and scored twice in the game. He's walked in three straight games, which qualifies as rare patience from him. He's batting .273 with four homers, 13 RBI and 14 runs scored in 20 games this month.

Avisail Garcia hit a walk-off RBI double in the 13th inning against the Angels on Wednesday.

Garcia finished 1-for-4 with two walks on the night. He laced a Cesar Ramos offering into the gap in left-center, allowing Jose Abreu to score from first base. Garcia is hitting .264/.313/.386 with 11 home runs and 43 RBI this season.

Garcia made it a 3-0 game with a solo home run off of Matt Shoemaker, then broke the game open with a three-run homer in the sixth against Shoemaker to make it 6-0. Garcia has homered four times in his last six games, giving him 11 on the season with 42 RBI and a modest .266/.313/.388 batting line.
Aug 10 - 11:06 PM

Avisail Garcia drew a walkoff walk Wednesday as the White Sox topped the visiting Rays 6-5.

Garcia watched a 3-1 pitch from Brad Boxberger sail outside in the bottom of the 10th inning, pushing Adam Eaton home from third base. He also hit a three-run shot in Chicago's five-run first inning and he homered and scored two runs on Tuesday. The 24-year-old outfielder could be in for a big finish to what has been a relatively disappointing 2015.
Aug 5 - 5:48 PM

Avisail Garcia went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a loss against the Rays on Tuesday.

Garcia salvaged his night a bit with the blast, a solo shot in the ninth inning of a blowout. Somewhat unbelievably, it was Garcia's first homer since June 8. The outfielder has struggled to hit for power for much of the year, batting just .267/.312/.369 with 34 RBI and 41 runs scored.
Aug 5 - 12:14 AM

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

It's nothing more than a routine day of rest for the outfielder. J.B. Shuck will start in right field and bat seventh against Jeremy Guthrie and the Royals on Saturday.
Jul 18 - 12:40 PM

Avisail Garcia went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's win over the Royals.

After a relatively quiet first half, Garcia's second half is off to a good start. The 24-year-old hasn't homered since way back on June 8 and it's worth wondering how much power upside he truly has. His fly ball rate is among the lowest in the majors, so he might not be able to take advantage of playing half of his games in hitter-friendly U.S. Cellular Field.
Jul 18 - 12:20 AM

Avisail Garcia went 4-for-5 with a double and an RBI against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Garcia's .283 average is fine, but he's not doing enough else to be a useful regular for the White Sox. He has just 16 extra-base hits in 276 at-bats, he's walked 15 times, he's been caught stealing in half of his attempts and he's failed to play above average defense in right field. He's still just 24, but he's far from looking like a future star.
