White Sox RF Avisail Garcia homers in defeat to Detroit
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) The only thing that could have made Friday sweeter for White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is if his team had beaten the Tigers.
Garcia unloaded on his former teammates with a solo home run leading off the second, but the Sox were shut out the rest of the way and fell to Detroit. The blast was Garcia's first of the season, but he still owns a fine slash line of .333/.400/.519.

White Sox's Avisail Garcia won't dive for fly balls anymore
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is putting his health ahead of spectacular catches.
Garcia suffered an avulsion fracture and labrum tear in his shoulder last April, diving to try to catch a line drive. Now he's done diving for balls.
"Maybe if we play in the World Series and I have to dive, I'm going to dive," he said, per MLB.com. "But not right now."
Coach Darryl Boston is working with Garcia on getting into position, so dives aren't necessary.
"We are trying to keep him on the field. He helps us by being out there 162 games if possible," Boston said. "We get scouting reports so we try to put him in the best position possible."

Garcia is a .277 lifetime hitter against left-handed pitchers.
White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia working on swing mechanics
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is treating spring training like its the regular season. He's working on seeing the ball better at the plate and swing discipline, reports MLB.com.
"I feel great," Garcia said. "I'm seeing the ball good. I'm trying to not swing at bad pitches. Work my count. I'm relaxed, focused and [trying to] make it happen."
Manager Robin Ventura likes what he's seen from Garcia so far this spring.
"There are going to be swings and misses out of him, but he's putting it in play, running the bases great," Ventura said. "That's the biggest thing is him running around, seeing how free and easy it is. He got short-changed last year as far as at-bats, but his movements around the field, making plays in the outfield, things like that, that has been important."
|2014 summary: Avisail Garcia opened up the season as the White Sox's starting right fielder, but eight games into the schedule, he tore a labrum trying to make a catch. After Garcia underwent surgery on his left shoulder days later, it was presumed by many that he would miss the rest of the season, but the presumption was wrong. Garcia returned to play the final six weeks, showing some decent power by hitting five home runs and eight doubles in 142 at-bats, though he batted just .239 over that span.|
Playing time status: Once again, Garcia will enter the season as the team's right fielder, and he should see steady at-bats in that role.
2015 outlook: Coming up through the Tigers' farm system, Garcia appeared to be on track to develop into a power/speed threat, but he may not be prepared to deliver on either of those at this stage of career. Though Garcia can pack a wallop, a high ground ball rate could prevent him from hitting as many as 20 homers. Though he possesses speed, a lack of basestealing efficiency could limit his stolen base total. Though this could be a breakout year for Garcia, he could disappoint if drafted as anything other than a late-rounder in standard mixed leagues.
