White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Generates offense Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Garcia went 2-for-2 with two runs scored in Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

Garcia was given the inside track on the starting right-field job by manager Rick Renteria earlier this spring and immediately established himself as the front-runner. He had a perfectly mediocre season at the dish in 2016, when he mainly served as the team's designated hitter. Garcia said he wasn't thrilled about being the DH, suggesting it affected his bat, and worked hard on his conditioning to put himself back on the radar in the outfield. The key question is if his improved conditioning leads to better outfield defense. He's a minus-23 in Defensive Runs Saved since becoming a major leaguer in 2012, which suggests he's probably not totally free of DH.

White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Sheds 14 pounds in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia lost 14 pounds while dedicating himself to getting in better shape this offseason, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Coming off an unremarkable season in which he slashed .245/.307/.382 and posted a 0.5 WAR, Garcia will be hoping to use his slimmed-down figure to improve his agility on defense and on the bases. The 25-year-old outfielder enters the spring with a good chance of earning a starting spot on a White Sox team that is devoid of much outfield depth.

White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Chance to win starting job
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Garcia will be given the opportunity to become the White Sox's starter in right field, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Chicago manager Rick Renteria said Garcia will be given a shot to "settle into right field," but he also mentioned that both Willy Garcia and Rymer Liriano are in the mix. The 26-year-old Avisail Garcia has been a regular in the lineup the last two seasons, getting at-bats as a corner outfielder and designated hitter. One might think a player with 966 at-bats and 268 games played over the previous two seasons might be a lock to start in 2017, but the rebuilding White Sox are in no position to be handing out starting jobs -- particularly to a corner outfielder who has limited power and a high ground-ball rate.

White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Avoids arbitration with new deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Garcia signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the White Sox, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Garcia's 2016 campaign was a replica of his 2015 output in many ways, as his 12 home runs, .245 average, and .692 OPS were all in the same ballpark as his production in those departments the year before. He'll probably be the DH on most days, but he started 51 games in the outfield last season, so he could see some time in one of the corner spots when either Melky Cabrera or Adam Eaton need a day off.
