Garcia will undergo surgery to repair his left thumb, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Garcia was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday, and manager Rick Renteria revealed that he won't be available until at least October. He apparently severed the ligament in his thumb, necessitating a lengthy recovery. The 29-year-old is hitting .271 with three home runs and eight RBI but could be available for a potential playoff run if his recovery goes well.
Garcia (thumb) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday. Garcia hurt his thumb while sliding into first base, and though his X-rays came back negative, he'll miss considerable time. While he'll be eligible to return for the White Sox's final series of the regular season, it's unclear whether he'll be healthy enough to do so. Danny Mendick should continue to see time at second base while Garcia and Nick Madrigal (shoulder) are sidelined. However, Madrigal should handle some of the duties at second base once he returns.
Garcia was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a sprained left thumb. Following his injury on a head-first slide into first base Monday, Garcia underwent X-rays that came back negative. However, he'll spend at least 10 days on the shelf as he recovers. In his absence, Danny Mendick should see increased time at second base. Tim Anderson (groin) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
X-rays were negative after Garcia left Monday's game against the Tigers with left thumb soreness. A head-first slide into first base led to Garcia's eventual departure from the game. Fortunately, it sounds like he avoided any breaks, though the team plans to give Garcia a look over Tuesday before making any determinations regarding his availability for the rest of the series.
Garcia left Monday's game against the Tigers with an apparent left hand injury, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Garcia appeared to jam his left hand on a head-first slide into first base in the seventh inning. He stayed in the game initially but was lifted the next half inning. Danny Mendick shifted to shortstop as Ryan Goins entered the game at second base. Tim Anderson (groin) is expected back for the White Sox on Tuesday.
