Does Avisail Garcia have value this season?
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/14)
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. 

Christian Yelich slugs ninth home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/14) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 7-3 loss to the Pirates Wednesday.

Yelich smacked his home run in the second inning to bring his team to within one run, but they were unable to come up with any more offense over the game's final seven innings. It was his first home run since the All-Star break, and Yelich now owns a .270/.353/.415 line with nine home runs, 40 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 381 at-bats.

Christian Yelich smacks eighth home run Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/12/14) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich went 1 for 4 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 5-4 loss to the Mets Saturday.

Yelich gave his team a 2-0 lead with his shot to right center field in the top of the fifth, but the Mets were able to even the score in the bottom half of the inning. Yelich owns a nine-game hitting streak as well as a .273/.351/.431 line with eight home runs, 31 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 304 at-bats.

Christian Yelich slugs seventh home run Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/5/14) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich went 2 for 5 with a three-run home run in his team's 6-5 win over the Cardinals Saturday.

Yelich reduced his team's deficit to one run with his sixth-inning home run, and the Marlins were able to come through with two runs in the ninth to steal the win. The outfielder has delivered three straight two-hit performances, though Saturday's home run was just his second since May 16. He has hit .266/.345/.428 with seven home runs, 29 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 278 at-bats.

Christian Yelich starts in first game back from DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/14) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich (back) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Sunday against Oakland. He was immediately inserted into the lineup, batting leadoff and playing in center field with Marcell Ozuna (leg) sidelined.

Yelich hit .200 (3 for 15) with one home run and five RBI in four rehab games between Class A Jupiter and Triple-A New Orleans.
