    Leury Garcia went 1-for-4 with a walk-off solo home run in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Red Sox.The Red Sox were able to tie the game up in the top of the ninth but Garcia made sure no extra innings were needed Sunday after blasting a walk-off home run off of Garrett Whitlock. It was just his fifth long ball of the season but his second over the last two days. The 30-year-old has a hit in nine of his last 10 games and is slashing .258/.331/.368 with 26 extra-base hits, 49 RBI, 52 runs scored, six steals and 37:86 BB:K over 405 plate appearances.

    White Sox's Leury Garcia: Pops fourth homer

    Leury Garcia went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 9-8 extra-inning loss to the Red Sox.He took Connor Seabold deep in the second inning to open the scoring and give the Boston rookie a rude welcome to the majors. Garcia isn't much of a power hitter -- Saturday's blast was his first since July 7 and only his fourth of the season -- but he's been hot at the plate for a while now, slashing .365/.407/.519 through 14 games since returning from a concussion in late August.

    White Sox's Leury Garcia: Still at short for Anderson

    Leury Garcia went 3-for-4 with a double, a hit-by-pitch and a stolen base in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Athletics.Garcia started for the sixth time in seven games since Tim Anderson (hamstring) was added to the injured list. Five of those starts came at shortstop in place of Anderson and the sixth came at second base. Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa said Tuesday that Anderson is "pushing it a little more every day," but there is no target date yet for when he'll rejoin the team. In the meantime, Garcia has thrived with consistent at-bats. He's 11-for-21 (.524) with three doubles, four RBI, one steal and two runs scored over the last six games.

    White Sox's Leury Garcia: Makes third straight start

    Leury Garcia started at shortstop and went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Pirates.The Chicago White Sox placed Tim Anderson (leg) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, which opens up shortstop for Garica and others. This was Garcia's third consecutive start at short in place of Anderson, and he's 3-for-8 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored during that stretch. Danny Mendick and Romy Gonzalez are also in the mix at short, but Garcia should be viewed as the primary replacement.

    White Sox's Leury Garcia: Likely to fill in at shortstop

    Leury Garcia will start at shortstop and bat seventh Wednesday against the Pirates.Garcia will stick at shortstop for the third game in a row, and he looks poised to serve as the primary option at the position for at least another week after Tim Anderson (hamstring) was moved to the 10-day injured list Wednesday. The Chicago White Sox called up one of their top middle-infield prospects (Romy Gonzalez) in a corresponding move, but he and Danny Mendick appear likely to serve as utility options while Garcia and Cesar Hernandez pick up most of the reps at shortstop and second base, respectively.

    White Sox's Leury Garcia: Makes another start at short

    Leury Garcia started at shortstop in place of the injured Tim Anderson (leg) and went 1-for-1 with a double, a walk and an RBI in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Pirates.Anderson's been held out of games Sunday and Tuesday with an off-day in between. Soreness in his legs has been the reason for a few absences since last week, so, with an eye toward the postseason, perhaps manager Tony La Russa wants to knock out whatever's been ailing the shortstop. Garcia remains ready to fill in for as long as Anderson needs.

    White Sox's Leury Garcia: Filling in for Tim Anderson

    Leury Garcia will start at shortstop and bat ninth Sunday against the Cubs.Garcia will pick up his fifth start in six games Sunday, but so long as Tim Anderson (leg) is cleared to return to the lineup following Monday's off day, Garcia won't have a path to an everyday role. His ability to play all over the infield and outfield should at least allow Garcia to pick up a handful of starts per week even while the Chicago White Sox are at close to full strength, keeping him relevant in AL-only leagues.

    White Sox's Leury Garcia: Notches pair of steals

    Leury Garcia went 2-for-3 with a pair of stolen bases and a run scored in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to Toronto.In his second game back from a concussion, Garcia ran wild in the third inning. He reached on a single, then took second and third on steals before scoring on a Yoan Moncada single. Garcia has gone 4-for-8 since he rejoined the starting nine. For the year, the 30-year-old owns a .246/.323/.338 slash line, five steals, three home runs, 40 RBI and 43 runs scored through 350 plate appearances. He should settle into a utility role going forward.
