  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Starts ahead of Harrison again

    Garcia will start at second base and bat seventh in Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

    Garcia appears to have unseated Josh Harrison as the White Sox's primary second baseman, as the latter player will be on the bench for the second straight game. Neither Garcia nor Harrison has been especially productive at the plate this season; in fact, Harrison holds a 50-point edge in OPS (.544 to .494).

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Added to lineup

    Garcia was added to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Yankees, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The 31-year-old was initially slated to be on the bench for a second straight game, but he'll draw the start at second base after Yoan Moncada (leg) was scratched from the lineup. Garcia has gone 3-for-18 with an RBI and five strikeouts over his last five games.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: On bench Thursday

    Garcia is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals.

    Garcia heads to the bench after going 3-for-18 with an RBI while starting in each of Chicago's last five games. Josh Harrison will start at second base for the second time in three games and may have taken back primary duties at that position, but Garcia's ability to play three infield and three outfield spots will create multiple avenues for him to pick up starts.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Takes seat Saturday

    Garcia isn't starting Saturday against the Yankees.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Delivers two RBI

    Garcia went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Yankees.

    Garcia returned to the lineup after missing Wednesday's matchup due to ankle soreness. He delivered a two-RBI single in the second inning and now has at least one hit in his last six starts, recording five RBI and three runs scored in that span. Even so, Garcia is still hitting just .203/.221/.324 across 78 plate appearances on the season.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Good to go Thursday

    Garcia (ankle) is starting at second base and batting ninth Thursday against the Yankees, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    Garcia was scratched from Wednesday's contest due to left ankle soreness, but it's apparently a minor injury given he's back in the lineup a day later. The 31-year-old is off to a slow start in 2022 and has a .186/.205/.324 slash line through 22 games.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Managing left ankle soreness

    Garcia (ankle) was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Guardians due to left ankle soreness, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    The 31-year-old was initially slated to start at second base Wednesday, but Danny Mendick will take his place at the keystone. It's not yet clear whether Garcia will be available off the bench or whether he'll be cleared to return to the lineup for Thursday's series opener against the Yankees.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Late scratch Wednesday

    Garcia is no longer starting Wednesday's contest against the Guardians, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    After originally being listed in the lineup as the White Sox's starting second baseman and No. 7 hitter, Garcia was a late scratch Wednesday. No reason has been given for Garcia's absence, but Danny Mendick will replace him in the lineup.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Heads to bench

    Garcia will be on the bench Tuesday against the Guardians, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Garcia had five straight games, including four at second base. Josh Harrison will fill that spot Tuesday.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Takes hold of second base gig

    Garcia will start at second base and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Guardians, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    He'll crack the lineup for the fifth straight game, with four of his starts coming at second base. Yoan Moncada's (oblique) stint on the IL had created a pathway for both Garcia and Josh Harrison to pick up work in the infield, but with Moncada back in action Monday for his season debut, Harrison looks like he'll be the odd man out of the regular lineup. Garcia enters the series opener with a four-game hitting streak, which has boosted his season OPS to .581. While unremarkable, that figure is still well above Harrison's .485 mark.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Gets fourth straight start

    Garcia will start in right field and bat leadoff in Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    Garcia manned the keystone in each of the previous three contests, but with everyday second baseman Josh Harrison back in the lineup for the series finale, the former will get a look in the outfield while veteran AJ Pollock receives Sunday off. Everyday leadoff man Tim Anderson is also receive a rare day off, so Garcia will slot atop the lineup for the first time this season. Garcia will be rewarded with the leadoff role after going 5-for-11 with a home run, a double and a stolen base across his last three starts.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Swats second homer

    Garcia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-3 victory versus the Cubs.

    Garcia got the start at second base and crushed a 408-foot solo shot to center field in the third inning. The long ball was just his seventh hit of the campaign, though four of those knocks have gone for extra bases. Garcia has struggled with a .127/.158/.273 slash line through 57 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Knocks in two

    Garcia went 1-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Angels.

    Garcia drew his third start in the team's last four games, and he filled in at second base as Josh Harrison slid to the hot corner. Garcia played a key role in Chicago's ninth-inning rally, delivering a two-run double and later coming around to score. He doesn't have a clear path to everyday playing time, but Garcia's defensive versatility should earn him regular plate appearances while Yoan Moncada (oblique) remains sidelined.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Records first homer

    Garcia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday against the Royals.

    Garcia has struggled to crack the lineup since Josh Harrison returned from a shoulder injury, as he's started only one of three games since. However, he provided one of Chicago's few offensive bright spots Thursday when he hit a solo home run in the sixth inning to record his first long ball of the season. Though Garcia provides valuable versatility from a defensive perspective, he has just five hits across 46 plate appearances, so he isn't necessarily pushing for a return to consistent playing time.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Sits after five straight starts

    Garcia is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

    Though everyday second baseman Josh Harrison (shoulder) returns to the lineup Tuesday as a designated hitter, Garcia will hit the bench after five consecutive starts at the keystone. Danny Mendick will fill in at second base Tuesday, but both he and Garcia should see their playing time trend down with Harrison healthy again and outfielder Luis Robert (groin) expected back in the lineup Wednesday.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Filling in for Harrison

    Garcia will start at second base and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Twins.

    Garcia will pick up his fifth start in a row -- all of which have come at the keystone -- while Josh Harrison tends to a sore shoulder. Despite getting steady playing time of late, Garcia has yet to get going at the dish. Through his 39 plate appearances on the season, Garcia is slashing .108/.154/.135 with no home runs, no stolen bases, no RBI and two runs.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Collects first hit

    Garcia went 1-for-3 with a double Friday against the Rays.

    Garcia has been in the lineup for each of Chicago's last four games due to the absences of Josh Harrison (back), Yoan Moncada (oblique) and AJ Pollock (hamstring). He had gone hitless through his first 17 at-bats of the season, albeit with only a 15 percent strikeout rate. While Garcia appears to be an everyday player in the short term, as the team gets healthier he is likely to shift back to a utility role.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: May be in line for expanded role

    Garcia went 0-for-2 in Wednesday's win over the Mariners.

    Garcia was not in the starting lineup, but he entered the game after Eloy Jimenez suffered an ankle injury. Later in the contest, Josh Harrison was also removed due to back tightness. It's unclear whether Harrison or Jimenez may remain sidelined due to their injuries, though Garcia is in a position to benefit thanks to his defensive versatility. Though Garcia lacks pop, he regularly hits in the low .270s and is capable of chipping in stolen bases.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Returns to utility role

    Garcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    While Tim Anderson served a two-game suspension to begin the season, Garcia opened the campaign with back-to-back starts at shortstop, going hitless across eight at-bats between those contests. With Anderson back in action Sunday, Garcia is expected to transition into a utility role. Injuries to Yoan Moncada (oblique) and AJ Pollock (hamstring) could temporarily open up work for Garcia at third base or in the outfield.
