Garcia will start in center field and bat ninth Wednesday against the Orioles, MLB.com reports.
Garcia is making his third straight start in the outfield with Leury Garcia (hand) still hurting. Willy has delivered three hits and two walks over the last two games, but it's unlikely that he'll receive consistent at-bats once Leury is healthy again.
Garcia went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's 16-1 win over the Mariners.
Garcia started in center field in place of the injured Leury Garica (elbow) and hit his first career homer in the majors. Willy Garcia has been one of several players to start in center field but currently the spot belongs to Leury Garcia. Once Leury's bruised elbow heals up, Willy will head back to the bench.
Garcia started in center field and went 1-for-3 with a run in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Padres.
With Tim Anderson (bereavement) away from the team over the three-game weekend series against San Diego, manager Rick Renteria juggled his position players. The hot-hitting Leury Garcia started in place of Anderson at shortstop while Willy Garcia patrolled center field. Willy Garcia could find himself in the lineup over the weekend due to the team being temporarily short-handed, but normally his playing time is sporadic.
Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.
Jacob May was optioned to Triple-A after Monday's game, so Garcia serves as his replacement. The White Sox have very few healthy, competent big-league outfielders, so Garcia has a chance at getting a handful of starts in the short term, but he unlikely to have much success. His .294/.395/.529 slash line at Triple-A is bolstered by a .381 BABIP, and his 28.4 percent strikeout rate suggests he will be easily exploited by big-league pitching. The 24-year-old washed out of the Pirates' organization this past offseason.
Garcia was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte after Sunday's 3-1 win over the Twins.
Garcia was called up while Melky Cabrera was on paternity leave, going 2-for-7 during his brief two-game stint with the big league club. He'll head back to Triple-A and look to pick up where he left off, as the 24-year-old is 11-for-26 with two homers and an 8:7 BB:K through seven games.
