Garcia went 2-for-5 with a home run, RBI double and another run scored in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Yankees. Garcia hit an RBI double in the fifth inning off J.A. Happ and, with the count full in the seventh, launched a go-ahead homer off Adam Ottavino to give the White Sox a 5-4 lead for good. The 28-year-old continues to make his mark on the White Sox lineup, compiling four home runs, 44 runs scored, 10 doubles and seven stolen bases while batting .278/.313/.372.
Garcia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 12-1 loss to the Nationals. That was all the offense the White Sox could manage. The homer was the third of the season for Garcia. He's cooled off since the start of June, batting .156 (5-for-32) over eight starts in the month.
Garcia went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Royals. Garcia was held out of the lineup for the previous two games due to a shoulder injury, but was feeling well enough to play Tuesday. He entered the resumption of Monday's suspended contest as a pinch runner and played an inning in center field in the afternoon, then played all nine innings of the regularly scheduled game Tuesday night. Garcia is locked in as the White Sox's starting center fielder and leadoff batter, putting him on a path to a career high in plate appearances.
Garcia (shoulder) is starting in center field and leading off Tuesday versus the Royals. Garcia was out of the lineup the past two days with a sore right shoulder, but he's all set for Tuesday's matchup against right-hander Brad Keller. Garcia has a hit in three straight contests, but overall has struggled since May 9 with a .204 average and only one extra-base hit.
Garcia (shoulder) remains out of the lineup Monday against Kansas City, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Garcia was scratched with shoulder soreness Sunday and will get at least one more day to rest. Ryan Cordell will start in center field.
