Leury Garcia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Indians.

At the time he was placed on the disabled list, the outfielder was slashing .298/.345/.459 with six homers and six steals.

Leury Garcia (finger) was hitless across four at-bats while playing center field in his first minor-league rehab game with Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.

Garcia moved his rehab from the Arizona Rookie League to Charlotte. He was placed on the 10-day disabled list on June 19 and his injury has been healing slower than expected. He'll need a while to knock off the rust before he can be trusted again in fantasy circles.

Leury Garcia (finger) moved his rehab assignment to Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.

That followed a two-game stint in the Arizona League. Garcia hit leadoff and started in center field Saturday, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout. So far the 26-year-old has gone 4-for-13 with two homers and six RBI across three rehab appearances. Look for Garcia to join the Pale Hose within the next couple of days.

Leury Garcia (finger) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with the Arizona Rookie League White Sox on Wednesday.

Garcia has been working out at the White Sox spring training facilities in Arizona. He has been out of action with a sprained finger on his left hand since June 16. This could potentially just be a short rehab assignment to get him up to speed. Barring a setback, he figures to rejoin the White Sox some time in the next week or so.
Jul 26 - 5:34 PM

Leury Garcia (finger) is poised to begin a rehab assignment soon.

Garcia has been working out at the White Sox' spring training complex in Arizona and his sprained finger appears to be back to 100 percent. His rehab assignment is expected to be a short one, so he would seem to be on track to return at the start of the second half.
Jul 3 - 7:44 PM

Leury Garcia still has some minor swelling on the top of his left hand.

The White Sox will wait until he's fully recovered before throwing him into game action again after they rushed him back too quickly the last time around. It's looking like it could be at least a couple weeks before Garcia returns.
Jun 27 - 5:19 PM

White Sox placed OF Leury Garcia on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 16, with a sprained finger on his left hand.

Garcia has been bothered by the injury for over a week and might have made it worse when he came off the bench Thursday against the Orioles. This all comes with frustrating timing for the 26-year-old center fielder, who is sporting a cool .298/.345/.459 batting line with six home runs and six stolen bases through 56 games this season. Alen Hanson and Willy Garcia will continue to share time in center for the White Sox. Charlie Tilson (foot) is on track to begin a minor league rehab assignment in early July.
