by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia hits the bench for the second game in a row. Ryan Cordell will get the start in right field.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is not in Saturday's lineup against the Mariners.

He is hitting .286 with zero home runs and zero steals in 35 at-bats this month. Daniel Palka starts in right field while Adam Engel starts in center.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Friday's 9-7 win over the Mariners.

Garcia returned to action after being held out of the starting nine Thursday. He'll finish out the season as the primary center fielder, but his status for 2020 is up in the air. The organization's top prospect, Luis Robert, is a center fielder and is expected to reach Chicago at some point next season, perhaps even starting the season in MLB. Garcia could slide to right field but does not offer the type of power numbers one typically sees in a corner outfielder.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Set to miss weekend series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is expected to miss this weekend's series against the Angels following the death of his grandmother, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Garcia is out of Friday's lineup as he has returned to the Dominican Republic to be with family. The White Sox have a scheduled off day Monday before beginning a three-game set with the Royals on Tuesday.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: On bench again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Knocks in two in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-5 with two RBI in Friday's 10-7 loss to Atlanta.

Garcia, who injured his shin earlier this week, has not missed any subsequent games. He is, however, in a slump. Garcia is 3-for-25 with 11 strikeouts over his last six games.

August 27, 2019 02:36 PM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Won't miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (shin) will lead off and play right field Tuesday against the Twins.

Garcia left Sunday's game against the Rangers after getting hit in the shin by a pitch, but he avoided serious injury and won't wind up missing a start. He hasn't done much in the month of August, hitting .242/.263/.374, though he does have three steals this month.

August 25, 2019 06:44 PM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Sustains left shin contusion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia was removed from Sunday's game against the Rangers with a left shin contusion. He underwent X-rays afterward, which returned negative.

Garcia was pulled from the contest after being struck in the left leg with a pitch in the bottom of the seventh inning, which loaded the bases. He was fortunate to avoid any broken bones, but Garcia isn't necessarily out of the woods yet. The White Sox will hope Monday's off day provides enough time for Garcia to heal up and rejoin the lineup in Tuesday's series opener versus the Twins.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Two hits, two runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Twins.

Garcia has managed to maintain a decent batting average (.282) while receiving a career high in plate appearances. He also leads the White Sox with 78 runs, which ranks 35th in MLB. He moved from center field to right field to give the slumping Jon Jay a break Wednesday. The anticipation in Chicago continues to build for Luis Robert, who should man center field if he's called up in 2019. In that event, Garcia may still be a lineup regular in right field.

August 16, 2019 08:40 AM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Hitless in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started at third base and went 0-for-4 in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

Garcia returned to the lineup after missing four games due to an illness and a bruised finger. This was Garcia's first start at third base this season.

August 15, 2019 04:20 PM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (finger) is back in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels.

Garcia returns to the lineup after missing the past four games with a right finger bruise. The 28-year-old is starting at third base and leading off.

August 15, 2019 03:04 PM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: 'Good to go'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Rick Renteria described Garcia (finger) as "good to go" prior to Wednesday's game against the Astros, Khobi Price of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Despite that rosy assessment, Garcia was held out of Wednesday's game, although he was available. He could return to action Thursday against the Angels after missing the last four games due to an illness at first and then a bruised finger.

August 14, 2019 12:08 PM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Still out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (finger) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

An illness was believed to be the reason behind Garcia's absence from the lineup for the past three games, but it's instead a bruised right finger that's troubling the 28-year-old. Garcia will cede center-field duties to Adam Engel in the series finale with the hope of making his way back into the starting nine at some point during the White Sox's four-game set with the Angels that begins Thursday.

August 14, 2019 08:48 AM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Dealing with bruised finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is dealing with a bruised right index finger, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The bruised finger, and not the illness that scratched him from Sunday's lineup, appears to be the reason Garcia did not start either game of Tuesday's doubleheader. Adam Engel has picked up the starts in center field with Garcia unavailable.

August 13, 2019 08:44 PM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Remains sidelined for nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (illness) is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Astros.

Garcia was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to the illness and has yet to return to action. Adam Engel is starting in center field and batting eighth Tuesday night in his stead.

August 13, 2019 11:56 AM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Out for first game of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (illness) is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Astros.

Garcia was a late scratch from the lineup ahead of Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Athletics and wasn't scheduled to start in Monday's series opener with Houston before that contest was postponed. It's unclear if Garcia's absence from the first game of the twin bill is a result of the illness or merely a matter of rest, so there's still a chance he could rejoin the lineup for the nightcap.

August 12, 2019 02:52 PM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Needs another day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (illness) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Astros.

Garcia will apparently need an additional day to recover from the illness that rendered him a late scratch ahead of Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Athletics. For the second straight day, Jon Jay will handle leadoff duties for the White Sox with Garcia confined to a bench role.
