Avisail Garcia solid, but not slugging in September
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/18/14) White Sox outfelder Avisail Garcia has inched his average in a positive direction since bottoming out at .222 on Aug. 30.

Garcia is 17 for 57 since then with one home run and nine RBI. But he has just one extra-base hit since Sept. 3. His stat line now sits at .254/.318/.413.

Avisail Garcia swats fourth home run Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/14) White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 7-4 loss to the Yankees Sunday.

Garcia saved his home run for a crucial situation, tying the game in the ninth-inning before the White Sox would ultimately lose in the 10th. He has hit .241/.297/.483 with four home runs and 11 RBI in 58 at-bats.

Avisail Garcia hits third home run Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/14) White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia hit his third home run Wednesday against the Orioles.

Garcia struck in the first inning. With one man on, Garcia belted an 84 mph changeup out to left for a two-run shot. Garcia finished 1 for 3, with one run scored and three RBI. It was Garcia's first home run since April 8. 

Avisail Garcia shows he's worth a flier
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/18/14) I had to see it to believe it.

I heard the reports of Avisail Garcia working his way back from a torn labrum and avulsion fracture in his left shoulder, but given the severity of the injury -- it was thought to be season-ending at the time -- I presumed the White Sox would rein him in at some point.

But there he was in their starting lineup Saturday, going 2 for 4 with a double. He then went 1 for 3 with a double Sunday -- this after batting .340 (17 for 50) on a Triple-A rehab assignment.

Color me impressed.

Garcia has yet to establish himself as a reliable contributor in Fantasy, but he appeared well on his way after homering twice in the season's seventh game back in April. He hurt his shoulder the very next day. In his 328 at-bats in the big leagues, he hasn't hit for much power yet, but he certainly has the size to do so and showed signs of making good on it with five home runs in his final 94 at-bats last year.

At worst, he's a cheap source of batting average this time of year, and age 23, he could emerge as more. For your fifth outfielder spot, what do you have to lose?

Does Avisail Garcia have value this season?

Can Avisail Garcia live up to the hype? (USATSI)
Can Avisail Garcia live up to the hype? (USATSI)

White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is back. After suffering a brutal shoulder injury April 9, there was a good chance Garcia would miss the rest of the season. That's no longer the case. Garcia worked his way back, and has dominated during a rehab assignment, hitting .340 over 13 games. Garcia entered the year as a late-round, high-upside player, so his activation should intrigue Fantasy owners. Will Garcia produce enough to help teams down the stretch?

The answer partially depends on how you evaluated Garcia entering the season. Scouts have been mixed. Garcia hasn't shown the best command of the strike zone while coming up as a prospect, but has tremendous physical skills. He frequently drew comparisions to Miguel Cabrera due to his body type. The White Sox obviously think highly of Garcia. The club not only dealt for him last season, but plugged him into the middle of the order immediately. 

On a performance-basis, it's tough to know what to expect. Garcia performed admirably in 2013, and got off to a promising start in 2014. Unfortunately, his 2014 performance consists of 34 plate appearances. 

The White Sox aren't expecting a dropoff. In his first game off the disabled list, Garcia will hit behind Jose Abreu. That's a desirable job for nearly any hitter in the majors. He'll also hit behind Adam Eaton, who quietly has a .370 on-base percentage. That should give Garcia some nice RBI opportunities, at least when Abreu doesn't go deep. 

Even in a best case scenario, it's tough to recommend Garcia as anything more than a reserve in mixed leagues. Outfield is deep, and there are other players on the waiver wire with better numbers than Garcia. While there's upside with Garcia, no one knows how good he can be at this point in his career. Given the choice between picking up an unknown in Garcia or a guy like Christian Yelich, a safe owner would choose Yelich almost every time. 

Garcia's outlook hasn't really changed since the beginning of the season. If you liked him then, you should like him now. But given the depth in the outfield, it's tough to say owners should spring to pick him up on the waiver wire. In three outfielder leagues, he can stay out there. In anything deeper, he's definitely worth an add.
