Knee inflammation sidelines White Sox RF Avisail Garcia

|(5/22/15) The knee inflammation that has plagued White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia recently has him scratched from the Friday night game against Minnesota, per the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
J.B. Shuck is set to play in his place.
After the game, manager Robin Ventura said Garcia could miss a game or two because of the injury, reports CSN Chicago. Garcia said there was no structural damage to the knee and he'll see how he feels Saturday before determining if he can play.
Garcia had been hot at the plate, but struggled mightily in a four-game series against Cleveland with just one hit in 14 at-bats. He still owns a fine slash line of .319/.359//451.
White Sox OF Avisail Garcia in the lineup on Tuesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia is in the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Indians, the team announced.
Garcia left Monday's game in the 10th when after drawing a walk, he gingerly made his way to first base, but was noticeably grimacing. He left after feeling something in his knee as a precaution, manager Robin Ventura said.
"A little bit sore, a little bit of pain, but it's just inflammation," Garcia said Tuesday to ESPN. "I'm taking (anti-inflammatory medication) right now, put on some ice and that’s it."
Garcia is hitting .338 with 17 RBI in 133 at-bats this season. The White Sox are currently the favorites (-135) against Cleveland.
White Sox RF Avisail Garcia exits Monday's game with knee issue
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/18/15) White Sox right fielder Avisail Garcia left Monday's game against the Indians with inflammation in his right knee after leading off the bottom of the 10th inning of a tie game with a walk, the team has announced.|
J.B. Shuck replaced Garcia as a pinch runner and scored the winning run on a base hit by Carlos Sanchez.
"[Garcia] felt something in the knee and we’re just being really cautious with him to make sure," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said, reported by the Chicago Sun Times. "He felt he could probably stay in there."
Garcia was 0 for 3 for the game.
|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.
