Garcia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a stolen base in a rain-shortened 4-1 victory over the Blue Jays on Saturday. Garcia led off the bottom of the first inning by homering on the second pitch by Ryan Feierabend to give the White Sox an early lead. It was his first home run since April 16, but over his last 12 games the 28-year-old is a robust 14-for-44 and now has a .285/.323/.377 slash line this year. The stolen base was his seventh, tied for 15th in MLB.
Garica started at shortstop and went 2-for-4 with a stolen base, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jays. Garcia returned to the lineup Thursday after missing two games with a back issue. He filled in for a resting Tim Anderson at shortstop but has seen much of his playing time as the starting center fielder. Garcia is tied for the lead on the team with 29 runs scored and sits second behind Anderson with six steals.
Garcia (back) is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff Thursday against the Blue Jays. Garcia has been cleared to rejoin the starting nine after missing a pair of games with back tightness. The 28-year-old, who is hitting .289/.308/.316 with a stolen base and seven runs scored this month (13 games), will face righty Marcus Stroman in his first game back.
Garcia (back) remains sidelined for the second straight game Tuesday against Cleveland. Garcia has been battling lower-back stiffness since running into the outfield wall Sunday against the Blue Jays. Charlie Tilson again starts in center field in Garcia's stead. Despite sitting out for the second straight day, Garcia appears to have a good chance of avoiding the injured list and returning to the lineup after Wednesday's off day. He's already resumed hitting, running and throwing since suffering the injury and will be available off the bench for Tuesday's game, per James Fegan of The Athletic.
Garcia (back) is not in the lineup Monday against Cleveland. Garcia left Sunday's game with lower-back stiffness after crashing into the outfield wall. Charlie Tilson starts in center field Monday. It's not clear when Garcia is expected to return.
