White Sox's Leury Garcia: Productive at plate in big win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 2-for-3 with two walks, three RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 15-2 win over Detroit.

Garcia drove in a pair with a single in the second inning and added a bases-loaded walk in the fifth. The light-hitting utilityman is slashing only .238/.299/.298 with no home runs, 22 RBI, 25 runs scored and two stolen bases across 189 plate appearances. While he doesn't have an everyday job at one position, his versatility will allow him to find ways into the lineup regularly. Garcia is most likely to split time at second base with Danny Mendick while Nick Madrigal (hamstring) is out.

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

Garcia started in right field and went 2-for-4 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 6-1 victory over Toronto.

Garcia stepped in for Adam Eaton, who's often on the bench when the White Sox face left-handers -- he's batting .115 (3-for-26) against southpaws. Garcia returned to the lineup after sitting out the last two contests, a spell that coincided with the return of Adam Engel from the injured list. Garcia, who has appeared in 48 of 60 games this season, may be moving back to a utility-infielder/fourth-outfielder role in which there's more days off between starting assignments.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Out for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.

After sitting out Saturday against a lefty starting pitcher (Tarik Skubal), Garcia will remain on the bench for the second game in a row while a right-hander (Jose Urena) takes the hill for Detroit. The back-to-back benchings could signal that Garcia will move into more of a fourth-outfielder/utility role after the White Sox brought back Adam Engel (hamstring) from the injured list Sunday ahead of his season debut. Engel will start in center field and bat eighth.

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

Garcia isn't starting Saturday's game against the Tigers.

Garcia went 1-for-6 with a run and two strikeouts across the last two games. Billy Hamilton will take over in center field and bat seventh.

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

Garcia is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against Cleveland.

Billy Hamilton will get the start in center field, with Garcia taking a seat for at least the beginning portion of the tilt against Shane Bieber and Cleveland.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Sitting second game of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is out of the lineup for the second game of Monday's doubleheader with Cleveland.

Garcia will cede his spot in center field to the hot-hitting Billy Hamilton, who has homered in both of his past two starts. The former still seems to have the grasp on an everyday role, and Garcia helped his cause by going 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in the White Sox's 8-6 win in Game 1 of the twin bill.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: On bench for nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia isn't starting Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

Garcia went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout in Saturday's matinee. Billy Hamilton will take over in center field and bat eighth.

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

Garcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.

Garcia takes a seat after starting each of the White Sox's last 10 games, during which he went 10-for-35 (.286 average) with three doubles, three RBI and three runs. Billy Hamilton will check in for Garcia in center field.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Average climbing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 16-4 win over the Twins.

Garcia is starting to swing the bat better after loitering around the Mendoza Line for much of the season. Over the past nine games, he's gone 11-for-31 (.355), raising his season average to .234. He's getting starts in left field and center with both Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) and Luis Robert (hip) sidelined.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Twins.

Garcia had gone 4-for-10 with a triple, four RBI and a run across the last three games. Billy Hamilton will start in center field and bat eighth.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Productive as fill-in starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started in center field and went 1-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-0 win over the Reds.

Garcia was given the first opportunity to fill in for the injured Luis Robert (hip) in center field. Robert will miss between three and four months, so there's an ample amount of at-bats in play. Garcia's spot was bolstered Tuesday after the White Sox announced Adam Engel (hamstring) suffered a setback in his rehab. Billy Hamilton is also in the center field mix.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Filling in for Luis Robert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will start in center field and bat ninth Tuesday against the Reds.

With Luis Robert placed on the injured list Tuesday and expected to miss at least three months after sustaining a Grade 3 right hip flexor strain, the White Sox will need to break in a new everyday center fielder. Garcia looks like he'll get the first crack at those duties, but his career .255/.290/.355 slash line makes him a less-than-ideal candidate for a full-time role. Veteran Brian Goodwin -- whom the White Sox signed to a minor-league deal Tuesday -- could eventually supplant Garcia in center field, and Chicago may also look to address the position through the trade market.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Shifts to CF after Robert injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started in right field then shifted to center after Luis Robert left Sunday's game with an apparent hip injury. He went 0-for-4 in a 5-0 loss to Cleveland.

Manager Tony La Russa said Robert is definitely headed to the injured list and more will be learned Monday when he undergoes additional testing. The injury appeared serious and could open the door to consistent at-bats for Garcia and Billy Hamilton as fill-ins. Garcia got off to a slow start but has hit a respectable .290 over the last 10 games.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: On base twice with three RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a run, three RBI and a strikeout as Chicago triumphed 7-3 over Cleveland on Saturday.

Garcia opened the scoring with a bases-loaded walk in the second and padded Chicago's lead with a two-run double in the fifth. The utility man cannot be relied upon for consistent at-bats, but he tends to be Chicago's first bat off the bench and sees occasional spot starts.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Big day in twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started both ends of Thursday's doubleheader, going a combined 3-for-6 with five RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in a sweep of the Tigers.

Garcia filled in at second base in the matinee then played right field in the nightcap, showing off the versatility that makes him useful for fantasy managers. What hasn't been useful is his work at the plate. Garcia entered Thursday with just nine hits in 51 at-bats (.176) with two RBI. He delivered a game-deciding two-run single in the fifth inning of the afternoon contest and knocked in three on a pair of run-producing singles in the second game.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Fills in for Robert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started in center field and went 1-for-4 in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Detroit.

Garcia filled in for Luis Robert, who was added to the COVID-19 protocols list after feeling flu-like symptoms. Robert will miss at least a few days while in protocol, so Garcia could receive steady at-bats in the short term. Billy Hamilton could also play center field.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Gets third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia will man left field and bat eighth Monday against the Red Sox.

Garcia will be picking up his third straight start Monday, with each coming at a different position. He'll be spelling Andrew Vaughn in left field in the series finale, and Garcia's ability to play multiple infield and outfield spots should continue to afford him a handful of starts per week even while he isn't atop the depth chart at any position.

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

Garcia started at shortstop and went 1-for-3 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 8-0 win over Cleveland.

The multi-positional Garcia filled in for injured shortstop Tim Anderson (hamstring), who is expected to be activated off the injured list Thursday. Garcia has moved around the field, appearing in nine of 12 games for the White Sox. Now that playing time at shortstop will dry up, Garcia could get looks in left field, where several players are rotating in to replace the injured Eloy Jimenez (pectoral). That's in addition to his usual infield utility fill-in role. Garcia is slashing .129/.156/.194 with two RBI, one stolen base and four runs scored.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Laces RBI double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (leg) went 1-for-5 with an RBI double and two strikeouts in Sunday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Royals.

Garcia opened the scoring with an RBI double in the fourth inning to plate Nick Madrigal. The 30-year-old Garcia had been out since Tuesday while managing leg tightness. He's slashing .120/.120/.160 with no homers, one stolen base, one RBI and two runs scored in 26 plate appearances.

April 11, 2021 11:00 AM
White Sox's Leury Garcia: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (leg) is batting leadoff and starting in right field Sunday against the Royals.

The 30-year-old hasn't seen the field since Tuesday while managing leg tightness, but he'll return to the lineup for Sunday's series finale. Garcia is off to a slow start offensively, going 2-for-20 with two runs, a stolen base and seven strikeouts in five games.
