Leury Garcia went 2-for-4 with a triple, a three-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Both the triple and the dinger were the first in 13 games for Garcia, who was recalled in early September after spending the year with the club's Triple-A affiliate. Garcia had some prospect juice a few years back and was acquired by the Sox in a deal with the Rangers for Alex Rios in 2013, but he hasn't been able to carve out a meaningful role with the big club in recent seasons. He'll continue to be a complementary player going forward.

White Sox recalled INF/OF Leury Garcia from Triple-A Charlotte.

Garcia has spent the entire 2016 season at Triple-A, batting .313/.367/.426 with six home runs and 18 stolen bases in 84 games. He'll act as depth at multiple spots.

White Sox optioned INF Leury Garcia to Triple-A Charlotte.

Garcia batted just .139 (5-for-36) with nine strikeouts this spring. He bounced back and forth from the majors to the minors last season and we'll likely see something similar in 2016.
Mar 29 - 1:49 PM

Leury Garcia hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning to propel the White Sox to Saturday's 4-3 win over the Tigers.

The Tigers took a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning, but it wouldn't hold. After a J.B. Shuck RBI double knotted the proceedings at 3-all, Garcia came up huge with an RBI single to score Shuck and end the affair. The 24-year-old outfielder is just 3-for-14 in his limited action this season.

White Sox recalled INF/OF Leury Garcia from Triple-A Charlotte.

Garcia last saw time with the White Sox in late July, when Emilio Bonifacio was sidelined with an oblique injury. He received six at-bats, picking up two hits. For a better sample size, he was hitting .298/.340/.395 with three homers, 31 RBI and 30 steals over 90 games for Triple-A Charlotte. With those wheels, he should be able to find work as a pinch-runner on the expanded roster.

White Sox optioned INF Leury Garcia to Triple-A Charlotte.

Leury Garcia went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base as the White Sox defeated the Tigers on Wednesday.

Wed, Apr 23, 2014 10:12:00 PM

With the White Sox out of pitchers, Leury Garcia took a loss in the 14th inning Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Rather than extend Daniel Webb past three innings, the White Sox went to Garcia in a tie game. He actually got two quick outs, but he then walked two and gave up a two-run double to Jackie Bradley Jr.

Leury Garcia went 1-for-3 with a stolen base against the Padres on Saturday.

Garcia is batting just .259 in his first spring with the White Sox after coming over in the Alex Rios trade last season. The infielder has a chance to make the team in a utility role, and he's viewed as Alexei Ramirez' future successor.
Sat, Mar 22, 2014 11:19:00 PM

Leury Garcia went 3-for-4 with two stolen bases against the Tigers on Wednesday.

Batting leadoff, Garcia collected three of the team's five hits on the night. His two stolen bases gave him five on the year and four since being acquired by the White Sox. His .200/.261/.225 line makes him tough to roster in any league, but his speed gives him value in AL-only formats.
