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.

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.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Friday that Leury Garcia is likely to get significant playing time over the final three weeks of the regular season.

Garcia, acquired from the Rangers in the Alex Rios trade, is hitting just .133/.222/.133 with an RBI and two steals in 15 at-bats since coming to the White Sox. If he is to play semi-regularly down the stretch, his speed could make him a useful asset in AL-only leagues.

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

Garcia was acquired from the Rangers earlier this month in the Alex Rios trade. The athletic 22-year-old could take on fantasy value as a base-stealer if he gets enough playing time on the south side of Chicago.

White Sox acquired INF Leury Garcia from the Rangers as the player to be named later in the Alex Rios trade.

Garcia passed through waivers, making his reported move to Chicago official. A career .261/.310/.347 hitter in the minors, the 22-year-old's future is likely as a utility player. He's been assigned to Triple-A Charlotte.

MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers will send Leury Garcia to the White Sox in the Alex Rios deal.

They're announcing it as a player to be named later now only so Garcia doesn't have to pass through waivers. Garcia has some speed and should have a future as a utility player, but he's only a career .261/.310/.347 hitter in the minors, so the Rangers didn't give up much.

Rangers optioned INF Leury Garcia to Triple-A Round Rock.

With Ian Kinsler returning from the DL, Garcia will be sent down over Jurickson Profar. The 22-year-old won a spot on the Rangers' Opening Day roster, but batted just .192/.236/.231 over 25 games this season.

Leury Garcia has won a spot on the Rangers' bench.

Garcia, 22, is batting .231 (6-for-26) with one home run, two doubles and one stolen base in 14 games this spring. He has some speed, but it's unlikely he'll have any fantasy value as a utility infielder.

Rangers prospect Leury Garcia has been added to the Dominican Republic's roster for the World Baseball Classic.

The 21-year-old second baseman hit .292/.337/.398 with 31 stolen bases in 100 games at Double-A Frisco in 2012. While he's never played above Double-A, he's a candidate to earn a reserve infielder job with the Rangers this spring.

Rangers purchased the contract of INF Leury Garcia from Double-A Frisco.

Garcia batted .292/.337/.398 with two homers and 31 steals for Frisco this season. The 21-year-old is an unfinished product, but the Rangers didn't want to risk losing him in the Rule 5 Draft.
