Garcia went 3-for-4 with a stolen base, a run scored and one RBI in Sunday's 10-1 victory over the Royals. Garcia is 7-for-13 over the last three games, including a pair of three-hit outings. The 27-year-old is up to 10 stolen bases on the season, picking up his first since May, with a solid .290/.323/.404 triple slash in 193 plate appearances.
Garcia went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Friday's 9-6 win over the Royals. It's the switch-hitting utility man's first multi-hit performance in July, boosting his slash line on the year to .280/.315/.400 with four homers and nine steals in 56 games.
Garcia is out of the lineup against Houston on Saturday. Garcia will retreat to the pine after going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts during Friday's loss. Daniel Palka will draw a start in left field in his stead.
Garcia started at shortstop and went 0-for-3 in Friday's 11-4 loss to the Astros. Garcia got the start at short in place of the injured Tim Anderson, who was hit by a pitch on his left forearm during Thursday's game. Anderson told Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune that he was "sore" and "swollen a little bit" while manager Rick Renteria said holding him out of Friday's game was precautionary. If Anderson is ready to go Saturday, we expect Garcia to move back to the outfield, where he's made 42 of his 49 starts.
Garcia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Astros. Garica's eighth-inning homer off Chris Devenski put the White Sox ahead and in position to beat the AL West division leaders, but Joakim Soria could not hold the lead. Garcia had been bothered by a jammed finger the last few days, but appears ready for duty wherever the White Sox need him. He started in center field Thursday before moving over to shortstop when Tim Anderson (forearm) left the game after getting hit by a pitch.
