Avisail Garcia (knee) hopes to begin a rehab assignment on Saturday at Triple-A Charlotte.

He's slated to play three games for Charlotte before being activated. Garcia has missed the last two weeks of action with a sprained right knee.
Aug 19 - 5:40 PM

White Sox placed OF/DH Avisail Garcia on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 7, with a sprained right knee.

Jason Coats has been called up to take his place on the active roster. It's unclear how long Garcia will be sidelined. The 25-year-old is batting .240 with nine homers and a .688 OPS over 86 games this season.
Aug 9 - 3:09 PM

Avisail Garcia didn't start Tuesday but came off the bench to homer twice in a loss to the Tigers.

Garcia entered the game after Charlie Tilson got hurt and launched a two-run shot off of Shane Greene and a solo blast off of Mark Lowe. He now has eight dingers on the season to go along with a .240/.308/.371 batting line in what has been another disappointing season.
Aug 2 - 10:51 PM

Avisail Garcia was removed for a pinch-hitter after going 0-for-2 in Friday's game against the Angels.

With Justin Morneau up, Garcia's primary role is to serve as a DH against left-handers. The problem there is that Garcia has been even worse against lefties than righties this year. He deserves to be in Triple-A, and there's a good chance he'll find himself there soon.
Jul 16 - 1:10 AM

Avisail Garcia went 2-for-4 with an RBI double Friday against the Indians.

Garcia drove in the tying run in the top of the ninth inning before the Indians eventually won it on a walk-off homer from Carlos Santana. The 25-year-old has perked of late, hitting .375 (9-for-24) over his last six games, but he still has an underwhelming .260/.313/.385 batting line on the year and isn’t a recommended option in standard mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 17 - 10:42 PM

DHing and batting ninth, Avisail Garcia had two hits and two RBI against the Nationals on Wednesday.

The White Sox don't have much faith in Garcia at this point, but they also don't have anyone to replace him in the DH spot right now. They'll continue to keep their eyes open. At the moment, Garcia is hitting .248 with a .698 OPS.
Jun 9 - 12:03 AM

Avisail Garcia clubbed his fifth home run of the season on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to lead the White Sox to victory over the Royals.

Garcia blasted a three-run homer off Yordano Ventura in the fourth inning that increased the White Sox lead to 6-1. He also singled and scored in the contest, finishing the day 2-for-4. For the season, Garcia is hitting .259/.316/.424 with five homers and 18 RBI.
May 28 - 6:42 PM

Avisail Garcia is out of the White Sox starting lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader.

It'll be the third game off in a row for Garcia, who's batting .248/.313/.413 in 134 plate appearances this season. Brett Lawrie is at DH and Carlos Sanchez is at second base for Chicago in the early game versus Indians right-hander Mike Clevinger.
May 23 - 1:43 PM

Avisail Garcia is not in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

It's the second day off in the past three games for Garcia. Jerry Sands is starting at first base and batting cleanup while Jose Abreu shifts over to the designated hitter role in the lineup.
May 21 - 11:29 AM

Avisail Garcia is not in the White Sox's starting lineup Thursday against the Astros.

Garcia is just getting a routine day off. Jerry Sands will serve as the DH and hit seventh. Garcia struggled in April (.214 AVG) but has bounced back by hitting .319 with a .373 OBP in May.
May 19 - 4:59 PM

Avisail Garcia went 2-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season Thursday against the Red Sox.

Garcia took Red Sox starter Henry Owens deep for a solo blast in the fourth inning. The homer was Garcia's second in his last five games. He's 10-for-22 with the two homers, five RBI and five run scored during a six-game hitting streak that's run his overall line up to a modest .230/.301/.446.
May 6 - 1:44 AM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is back in the White Sox's lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox.

He missed four games with a strained hamstring. Garcia will bat seventh and serve as the DH. Jerry Sands, who filled in during Garcia's short absence, will return to the bench. Garcia is only hitting .214 this year with a disappointing .291 on base percentage.
May 5 - 4:53 PM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

Garcia is dealing with a tweaked hamstring suffered on Friday against the Orioles. After several days of rest, he had been hoping for a return to the lineup on Wednesday. The White Sox play the Red Sox again on Thursday and Garcia could conceivably crack the lineup for that one if the team feels comfortable with his health.
May 4 - 4:44 PM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is aiming to return to the White Sox starting lineup Wednesday.

Garcia tweaked his hamstring last Friday night and will take another day of rest Tuesday against the Red Sox. Jerry Sands is starting at DH and batting seventh.
