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.

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.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Managing leg tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia isn't starting Thursday against the Royals due to leg tightness, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

The 30-year-old will be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game, and manager Tony La Russa revealed that Garcia's absence has been due to a leg issue. Danny Mendick is starting at shortstop and batting ninth, but Garcia will be available off the bench if needed.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Although Garcia should be in line for an increased role after Tim Anderson (hamstring) was placed on the injured list Wednesday, he'll get a breather for the series finale against Seattle. Danny Mendick will start at shortstop, batting ninth.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: In line for increased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia should serve as the primary shortstop in the coming days after Tim Anderson (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Garcia started at shortstop in each of the past two games and went 1-for-9 with a run and three strikeouts during that time. Danny Mendick was recalled by Chicago in a corresponding move, but Garcia should continue to see most of the playing time at shortstop while Anderson is sidelined.

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

Garcia started at shortstop and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's 6-0 win over the Mariners.

Garcia, who entered Sunday's game when primary shortstop Tim Anderson injured his hamstring, was back at short Monday. The super-utility man has started three games this season, all at different positions -- left field, second base and now shortstop. Anderson's injury was not initially considered serious, but the team is awaiting the results of an MRI.

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

Garcia replaced an injured Tim Anderson (hamstring) and went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Angels.

Anderson injured his hamstring running out a grounder to lead off the game, and Garcia took over at shortstop. It was Garcia's third appearance in four games, all coming at different positions. He started in left field Opening Day, then second base Saturday before filling in for Anderson at shortstop Sunday. He'll be the primary shortstop if Anderson is required to miss any time. Garcia is 1-for-11 with four strikeouts thus far.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Draws Opening Day start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia started in left field and went 0-for-4 in a 4-3 loss to the Angels on Thursday.

Garcia was the first fill-in to replace Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) in left field. Jimenez will be out for multiple months, and a rotation of players is expected in left field. Eventually, this could be where Adam Engel (hamstring) lands when he comes off the injured list, while Garcia serves in a super-utility role.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Likely starter in LF Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia is expected to start in left field on Opening Day, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Manager Tony La Russa had Andrew Vaughn patrolling left field in three of the final four spring contests, but he acknowledged Tuesday that he's leaning toward Garcia as the first replacement for Eloy Jimenez (pectoral) in left field. "If I had to write it down now, Garcia would probably play left field," La Russa said. Garcia could see the bulk of the starts in left until Adam Engel's mid-April return from a hamstring injury.

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

Garcia (shoulder) will return to the lineup Tuesday against Colorado, batting eighth and playing second base.

Garcia was scratched Saturday with a sore shoulder, but the issue didn't seem particularly serious. Assuming he gets through Tuesday's game without issues, he'll be ready to fill a utility role on Chicago's Opening Day roster.

White Sox's Leury Garcia: Takes batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia (shoulder) took batting practice Sunday and continues to throw with no issues, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

The 30-year-old was scratched from Saturday's Cactus League lineup with right shoulder soreness, but his continued participation in baseball activities indicates it's a minor issue. Garcia has a few days to rest up before Thursday's Opening Day matchup with the Angeles.
