      White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Back in lineup Monday night

      Garcia will bat seventh in Game 2 against the Indians on Monday. Garcia got the afternoon off while Jimmy Rollins served at the team's designated hitter, but things will go back to normal Monday night with Garcia getting the nod.

      White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Sits out for third game in a row

      Garcia is not in the starting lineup for the first game of the White Sox's doubleheader against the Indians on Monday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. This marks the third game in a row that Garcia hasn't cracked the starting lineup, as well as the fourth time in the past five games. The White Sox have elected to employ more of a rotating designated hitter position as of late, which may to blame for the recent string of bench-sitting, although the 24-year-old's .248 batting average and career-high 24.6 percent strikeout rate certainly don't help his case. Brett Lawrie will get a crack at being Chicago's DH for game one, although there's a decent chance that Garcia could get a start in game two if the White Sox decide to rest some of their starters for the nightcap.

      White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Three hits in Sunday's loss

      Garcia went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Yankees. It's his third multi-hit performance in his last seven games, pushing Garcia's slash line for May to an impressive .324/.395/.500 in 34 at-bats. He's regained his regular spot in the White Sox's starting lineup, and if Garcia was cut loose due to his poor April it's past time to scoop him off the waiver wire.

      White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Scores two runs Sunday against Twins

      Garcia went 2-for-3 with a double and a pair of runs scored in the White Sox's win over the Twins on Sunday. On April 25, it looked like Garcia might be headed to Triple-A Charlotte to clear his head and right his swing. A trip to Charlotte looks unnecessary at this point, as he has a nine-game hit streak since that date (interrupted by a hamstring injury), in which he has gone 14-for-30 with five extra-base hits and more walks (four) than strikeouts (three).

      White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Returns to lineup with homer

      Garcia went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in his return to the lineup from a hamstring injury Thursday against Boston. Four games on the sidelines didn't put any rust on Garcia, who has actually hit safely in six consecutive games with four multi-hit efforts in that span after opening the season 7-for-52 (.135). He's still only a speculative fantasy option at best, though, as Garcia strikes out too often and has only modest power to go with marginal speed.

      White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Back in lineup as DH

      Garcia (hamstring) is back in the lineup Thursday as the DH. Garcia was held out of the previous four contests due to a strained right hamstring, but he's back in action Thursday, serving as the DH and batting seventh against Boston's Henry Owens. Jerry Sands, who had been DH-ing in Garcia's place, will return to the bench.

      White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Remains out Tuesday

      Garcia (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It will be the third straight game Garcia will miss after suffering a right hamstring strain, but he's already reported that he'll be good to go for Wednesday's contest. Jerry Sands will handle the DH responsibilities Tuesday and bat seventh against Steven Wright.

      White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Not expected to return for start of series with Red Sox

      Garcia (hamstring), who is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, isn't expected to be ready to go when the White Sox open their series with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Sunday's absence will mark the second straight game that Garcia has missed, and it seems likely that the hamstring injury could keep him out until next weekend, if it doesn't result in a DL stint. Garcia is batting .214 with three homers in 70 at-bats this season, so those lowly numbers combined with his hamstring injury will make it difficult to justify keeping him active in weekly leagues.
