White Sox's Leury Garcia: White Sox pick up 2021 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox exercised Garcia's $3.5 million club option for 2021 on Friday.

The 29-year-old missed a chunk of the season due to surgery on his left thumb in August, but he returned from the injured list for the playoffs. Garcia appeared in 16 games and had a .271/317/.441 slash line with three home runs in 63 plate appearances. He's likely to enter spring training working in a utility role for Chicago.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Activated and starting Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (thumb) was activated from the 45-day injured list Tuesday and will bat eighth and play left field in Game 1 of the Wild Card Round against the Athletics.

Garcia hadn't played since Aug. 10 while recovering from surgery to repair his left thumb. He's been working out at the White Sox's alternate training site in recent days and has evidently been cleared to play. The White Sox will need him for at least one start, though Eloy Jimenez doesn't appear to be too far from returning from a sprained foot.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Could play in postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (thumb) has been working out at the White Sox's alternate training site and hasn't been ruled out for the playoffs, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Garcia sprained his thumb back in mid-August and wound up undergoing surgery. He appears to be nearly ready to play, though whether or not he's ready for the start of the Wild Card Series, which begins Tuesday, remains to be seen.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Undergoing surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Transferred to 45-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Placed on 10-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Early exit Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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

Garcia went 2-for-3 with a walk, a home run and three RBI in Thursday's 8-3 loss to the Brewers.

Garcia's bat is running hot of late. He's 9-for-20 with a home run, four RBI and three runs scored over the last five games. He'll continue to fill in at shortstop until Tim Anderson (groin) returns, which is expected Aug. 11. At that point, he'll likely take over at second base with rookie Nick Madrigal (shoulder) unavailable.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Three hits in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Monday's 6-4 win over the Brewers.

The versatile switch hitter filled in at shortstop for Tim Anderson (groin) in this one, and Garcia has already seen action at three different positions -- five games at 2B, three in RF and two at SS -- through his first nine games this season. It's easy to see why manager Rick Renteria keeps putting his name on the lineup card, as Garcia is slashing .364/.417/.545 with two homers, five RBI and five runs.

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

Garcia (personal) will bat seventh as the shortstop in Monday's game against Milwaukee.

Garcia was absent from Sunday's game against the Royals due to a personal matter but will return after just one game. He lines up as the team's primary shortstop in the absence of Tim Anderson (groin).

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Tends to personal matter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia wasn't available for Sunday's 9-2 win over the Royals due to a personal matter, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Danny Mendick went 1-for-4 while filling in for Garcia, who had started at shortstop in place of the injured Tim Anderson (groin) the past two games. Manager Rick Renteria said that Garcia's absence was the result of a death in the family, but the 29-year-old hasn't been placed on the bereavement list. The White Sox will likely provide an update on his status prior to Monday's series opener with the Brewers in Milwaukee.

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

Garcia is not in the lineup Sunday at Kansas City.

The 29-year-old started Saturday's game at shortstop with Tim Anderson (groin) landing on the injured list, but Danny Mendick will receive the start Sunday. Garcia is 9-for-28 with two homers to begin the season and still figures to see the bulk of the time at shortstop until Anderson can return.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Starts at shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started at shortstop in place of the injured Tim Anderson (groin) on Friday and went 4-for-5 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in an 11-5 win over the Royals.

The White Sox placed Anderson on the 10-day injured list Saturday and will need a fill-in at shortstop in the near term. Garcia, who filled in for Anderson when he was injured Friday, is the logical choice.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Fills in at shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia entered Friday's game as a replacement for Tim Anderson, who left with a sore hip. He singled in his lone plate appearance in a 3-2 win over the Royals.

Garcia, a utility infielder who started the first six games at second base, was replaced by prospect Nick Madrigal on Friday. It's likely the White Sox called up one of their top prospects for a permanent role in the starting lineup, which would relegate Garcia to a utility role. The White Sox view Garcia's versatility as an asset, a skill that was needed Friday when Anderson left.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Supplanted by Madrigal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia isn't in the lineup for Friday's game at Kansas City.

The 29-year-old was in the starting lineup for the first six games of the season (five starts at second base, one in right field), but prospect Nick Madrigal was recalled Friday and is starting against the Royals. Garcia hit two homers in the second game of the season, but he's 1-for-15 over the past four games. Madrigal should get the chance to lock down the everyday role, which would leave Garcia to operate as a super-utility player.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Belts two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Twins.

The 29-year-old's fielding miscue during the season opener helped lead to a four-run frame, but he showed off his power during the second game of the season by blasting homers of 404 and 419 feet. Garcia's ability at the plate gives him the edge for starts at the keystone over prospect Nick Madrigal for the time being.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Muffs possible double play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia had a fielding miscue in a four-run first inning in Friday's 10-5 loss to Minnesota, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Garcia's mishandling of a turn on a potential double play extended the inning and put the White Sox in an early hole. He will be the starting second baseman over prospect Nick Madrigal for now, a decision manager Rick Renteria said was due to Garcia's offensive advantage. Madrigal, who is considered a better fielder, may eventually take over.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Wins second base job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will open the season as the White Sox's starting second baseman after the White Sox left prospect Nick Madrigal off the active roster, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Madrigal made a push for the second base job in summer camp, but the White Sox opted for Garcia. "Currently, Leury's timing, his readiness, seems to be a little ahead of where Nicky was over the last couple weeks," said general manager Rick Hahn. Eventually, the White Sox may decide that Garcia's versatility is a greater need than pinning him to one position, but for now, he'll be the everyday second baseman.

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

Garcia (back) is starting at second base and batting seventh in Sunday's exhibition game against the Cubs.

The 29-year-old was held out of Thursday's intrasquad action with mid-back soreness, but his return for the exhibition contest indicates it was a minor issue. Garcia is expected to start at second base for the White Sox in 2020 after posting a .688 OPS with eight home runs and 15 stolen bases in 140 games last year.
