Garcia (wrist) was released by the White Sox on Friday.
Garcia has been dealing with wrist soreness over the past few weeks, and recently began a wrist strengthening program in order to get back into game shape. He will now start looking for a new home after being let go by Chicago as the club begins cutting down the roster for Opening Day. In 2017, Garcia hit .238/.305/.400 with two home runs and 12 RBI in 44 games. Even if he's able to latch on with another organization in the near future, Garcia may head to Triple-A to begin the 2018 campaign.
Garcia began a wrist strengthening program Wednesday and will look to ramp up his activity in the coming days, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.
Garcia's next step will be hitting off a tee and participating in batting practice before finally getting on the field for a Cactus League game. There doesn't seem to be any set timetable for this progression but the club also doesn't appear to be particularly concerned about his status. In his absence, Nicky Delmonico and Avisail Garcia will continue to earn more reps in spring training.
Garcia hasn't participated in batting practice due to wrist soreness, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.
Garcia is wearing a brace on his left wrist and has been practicing in a limited capacity to avoid further aggravating the injury. The team hasn't given any indication that Garcia's ailment is serious, but more news should be available as spring training progresses.
Garcia (hamstring) isn't in the lineup Sunday against the Indians.
After straining his hamstring Wednesday, no further news surfaced that Garcia's health was trending in the right direction. He'll now aim to be back in full health for the 2018 campaign, as he finishes the season with a .238 batting average and .705 OPS that was built over 44 games.
Garcia (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels.
Garcia will miss some time after exiting Wednesday with a left hamstring strain. There hasn't been any update on Garcia's status, or a timetable for that matter, but it's a real possibility that he won't be back on the field again this season.
