White Sox' Avisail Garcia learns from injury-riddled 2014
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia said he learned a lesson during his injury-riddled 2014, according to CSN.

Garcia played in just 46 games last year after tearing his labrum on April 9. The 23-year-old has been working hard to get in better shape this offseason, and said he's learned a lot after sitting out most of last year. "It's a lesson," Garcia said. "You have to think of the future, not in the past. The past is the past. Now is the future." 

Garcia pointed to the team's offseason moves as proof that everyone on the team is working harder and wants to win. In order to do so, Garcia will need a big season. He's set to open the year as the team's starter in right, and should slot in the middle of the team's lineup. 

Garcia has a career .272/.314/.413 slash line over 463 at-bats in the majors.

White Sox OF Avisail Garcia working on improving plate discipline
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is working on improving his plate discipline and began doing so during the winter ball season in Venezuela, per MLB.com. After starting 2 for 18, Garcia finished with a .312 average, five homers, 22 RBI and a .528 slugging percentage.

"If I don't swing at bad pitches, I have more of a chance," Garcia said. "When I start swinging all over the place, that's when I miss them. I try to swing at good pitches, work my count so I can see the ball better."

The White Sox continue to have raised expectations for Garcia, who missed most of the 2014 season due to a left shoulder injury.

"There isn't anything he can't do," White Sox executive vice president Ken Williams said of Garcia. "He's going to hit for average, for power, steal bases.

"He's going to play outstanding defense. And he has a little flair about him, a little fun, and an aggressiveness going first to third and second to home that's like Kirk Gibson's kind of aggressiveness. What else do you want? Just go play."

White Sox OF Avisail Garcia dropped weight during offseason
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia dropped roughly 15 pounds during the offseason, according to MLB.com.

"I've been eating healthy, working real hard at the gym, Garcia said. "I have to be ready for spring training. I can't go there and be fat." With the weight loss, Garcia is hoping to keep his power potential. "I don't want to lose speed, I don't want to lose power," Garcia said. "I want to be in the middle. I know I can do a little bit of everything, so that's why I've been working really hard on speed, power, hitting and defense, so I can help my team win."

Garcia hit .244/.305/.413 over 172 at-bats last year.

Hahn: White Sox 'still very bullish' about Avisail Garcia's potential
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While a left shoulder injury kept White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia from making a significant impact in 2014, the team's outlook on the 23-year-old outfielder has not changed. They are still as excited about his future as the day they traded for him in late July 2013.

"This guy is going to be one of the future stars in the league," White Sox executive vice president Ken Williams said of Garcia during a Winter Meetings appearance on MLB Network, per MLB.com. "Rick (Hahn) and I set out to remake the club a couple of years ago and we knew we were going to take it on the chin. But we wanted to get young, impact players. It started with the [Jake] Peavy deal to get Avi Garcia."

Hahn also continues to tout Garcia's potential impact.

"The upside is tremendous," Hahn said. "There is a reason this guy was targeted a couple of years back when we acquired him. We are still very bullish on his potential."
